India beat Australia by 36 runs in World Cup

India have secured their second successive victory this World Cup by beating Australia by 36 runs in their second match ICC World Cup at Kennington Oval in London on Sunday.

India’s victory was set up by Dhawan who cracked 117 off 109 balls before mighty blows from Pandya, Kohli, Rahul and Dhoni propelled India to post a total of 352.

To chase the target Australia had a rather sluggish start; Warner laboured to his slowest ODI fifty. Smith made a more fluent fifty and Carey hit Australia’s fastest World Cup fifty, but the rapidly rising asking rate was simply too much to overcome.

Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah grabbed three wickets each while the spinners were quite impressive in the middle overs.
