The second game between Australia and India in the Carlton Mid One-Day International Tri-Series was captured by rain, both teams got two points each and the latter still have a chance to reach the final. Earlier, they were beaten by the Kangaroos and England in pool matches and are standing third on the table with two points. The Aussies are leading with 15 points after winning three out of four as one had no result and England holds five from three with a solitary victory. The forthcoming game between the Englishmen and the Blue Shirts will be considered as a semi-final and the winner will be facing Australia in the final.
Ian Bell smashed 141 runs for England against Australia in their previous match as Joe Root and Moeen Ali contributed 69 and 46. Eoin Morgan punched a ton in the first game whereas Jos Buttler, James Taylor and Ravi Bopara are their formidable batsmen. Steven Finn, Chris Woakes, James Anderson and Moeen Ali are bowling exceptionally well for their side.
The batsman in-form for India, Rohit Sharma, has been ruled out of the coming games because of an injury while Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina are struggling but they are required to fire back. Umesh Yadav is the only one who has accumulated two wickets and that shows the form of their bowlers on the fast tracks.
