India vs Australia 6th ODI Match Live Score 30-10-2013
To those who might have forgotten, this series is still going on in the background. It's been 10 days since there has been a result in this series, and by choosing to play in Lahli, Sachin Tendulkar has pushed it completely off the headlines. You always run that risk when testing the fans' patience with a seven-ODI series, but the good news is, the weather should hold up for the last two games, and the series between the top 2 ODI teams.
Rest assured, there will be no rain pouring down in Nagpur. Only fours and sixes. The new Jamtha stadium is known for its flat pitches in ODIs. Of the six ODIs played here, first-innings totals in five have been more than 290. Netherlands scored 292 here against England, India failed to defend 296 once. Add to it the new regulations of two balls from each end, and only four fielders outside the circle, and another run fest is in store.
The No. 1 ranking is off the table - Australia needed to win 6-1 or better to usurp India - but India need to win this one to avoid yet another home series loss against Australia. This is their sixth proper home series against Australia, and they have won only once, back in 1986-87.
