India vs Australia 6th ODI Scorecard - IND vs AUS 2013
India vs Australia 2013 6th ODI Live Score - India won the toss and opted to field against Australia in the sixth One-Day International of the seven-match series at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur on Wednesday (October 30).
The series score stood at 2-1 in favour of Australia, after the matches in Ranchi and Cuttack were rained out. In Ranchi, India batted 4.1 overs in the second innings, chasing a target of 296 before play was called off. In Cuttack, the match was abandoned without a ball bowled.
Unlike in the last two matches, the sky was clear and sunny in Nagpur, but Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Indian captain, opted to field expecting dew to play a role later in the day. “It looks like a good wicket, and it has a good outfield,” said Dhoni. “But maybe there will be a bit of dew later. There have been some high-scoring games here before, and that’s because it’s a very quick outfield with a good wicket.”
With that in mind, Dhoni opted to make a couple of changes to the side that walked out in overcast Ranchi. Vinay Kumar and Jaydev Unadkat, the pacemen, were replaced by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Amit Mishra, the legspinner who is playing his first game of the series.
Dhoni also said it was important that his team took it “one game at a time” and “execute our plans well”.
George Bailey, the Australia captain, named an unchanged side for the fifth time this series, and said it was important they finished off the series on the day. “It looks like a good batting wicket, a beautiful wicket,” said Bailey. “It’s nice to be in the lead so far, and it’s important that we finish it off today. India are so good that you can’t rely on just one or two players, you need a full team effort to beat them.”
