Shubman Gill has been in fantastic form in ODI cricket this year and we are backing the opener to be India’s highest run scorer in the second match of the series. With the ball, Mohammed Shami was particularly impressive on Friday and the pace bowler is our tip for India’s top wicket taker in this game.
Mitchell Marsh produced an incredible innings at the top of the order for Australia in the first ODI and he is our pick for their highest run scorer in Vizag. Mitchell Starc was unfortunate to finish on the losing side on Friday and we expect the left-arm quick to be Australia’s top wicket taker in this clash.
Mohammed Shami is one of the most consistent all-format pace bowlers. We recommend backing him to take over 1.5 wickets in the second ODI.

India vs Australia 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
IND vs AUS 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
The second ODI in the India vs Australia series takes place on Sunday afternoon and evening in Vizag, Andhra Pradesh. The hosts are 1-0 up after securing a five wicket win in a low-scoring encounter at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday. Read on as we preview the second match in the three game series. This game gets underway at 13:30 local time.
India were not at their best, particularly in the early part of their innings with the bat in the first ODI. However, they still found a way to win and we expect them to be too strong again in this fixture.
Australia will have been very disappointed that they managed to lose Friday’s game after finding themselves in strong positions in both innings. Once again, we expect them to be competitive in this match.

After missing the first ODI to attend the wedding of his brother-in-law, India skipper Rohit Sharma is expected to return to the team at the top of the order in Vizag. It is anticipated that he will come in as a straight swap for Ishan Kishan.
IND Key Players
Shubman Gill- the right-handed top order batter was looking in good form again before falling to a good catch on Friday. He continues to strike the ball cleanly across all formats of the game.
Ravindra Jadeja- the all-rounder was brilliant for the hosts during the Test series and took the Player of the Match Award in the first ODI after contributing with both bat and ball at the Wankhede Stadium.
Mohammed Shami- the experienced quick bowler is very consistent. He was unplayable at times in the first ODI where he finished with figures of 3-17 from six overs.
IND Team Form
India continue to be a very strong side in home fixtures. They are targeting their ninth ODI win in a row.
Although the conditions were extremely humid on Friday, Australia only spent 39.5 overs in the field and Mitchell Starc bowled the most balls in his spell of 9.5 overs. No players pulled up with injuries and we do not expect to see any changes in this game.
AUS Key Players
Steve Smith- the captain again looked in good form before falling for 22 in Mumbai. After seeing how weak the lower order batting was in the first ODI, expect Smith to look to bat for a long time in this game.
Mitchell Marsh- the batting all-rounder made batting look easy on a bowler-friendly surface on Friday. He hit five sixes and 10 fours during his 65-ball innings.
Mitchell Starc- the 33 year old quick bowler was particularly impressive with the new ball in the first ODI. His confidence will be high after he dismissed Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav in successive balls.
AUS Team Form
The defeat on Friday means that Australia’s winning run in ODIs has come to a halt after six wins.
Although Mitchell Marsh and Mitchell Starc were very impressive for Australia, India had much more consistent contributions from across their team and look to be the stronger side in these conditions in this format.
IND vs AUS Top Team Batsmen
We are backing Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and Shubman Gill as our batting selections for India. Rahul has scored 64 not out and 75 not out in two of his last three ODIs. Kohli got a great delivery from Starc on Friday but still averages 57.45 in this format.
Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh and Marnus Labuschagne are our batting tips for Australia. Labuschagne was dismissed by a very good catch in the first ODI and needs a score to secure his place in the team in this format ahead of the World Cup. Marsh was the cleanest hitter of the ball on both sides in Friday’s match.
Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj and Ravindra Jadeja are our bowling tips for India. Siraj has been in brilliant form in ODI cricket and added another three wickets to his tally in the opening game of the series. Jadeja got the key wickets of the big hitting Mitchell Marsh and Glenn Maxwell at the Wankhede Stadium.
We recommend Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa and Sean Abbott with the ball for Australia. Zampa looked a little short of match practice in the first game but will prefer the pitch conditions in Vizag. Abbott bowls with consistency, pace and gets movement on most pitches.
Friday’s opening ODI was very entertaining and we could well be in for another exciting game on Sunday. It was India’s greater experience of the conditions with the bat and the ball which meant they got home comfortably in Mumbai. However, there were signs that Australia could certainly cause problems across the rest of the series if Mitchell Marsh gets going with the bat and Mitchell Starc with the ball again. Rohit Sharma will make India a stronger team and we are predicting another win for India in Sunday’s match.
