500th ODI Win, 40th ODI Ton and a Nail-Bitter. What a match we experienced a few days back but it’s back to business with the 3rd ODI of the series in sight and alot to ponder for Australia with a little to think & correct for India. Rohit & Shikhar’s form is a bit of concern for India while Aussies will be looking to deny another series defeat at Jharkhand State Cricket Association Stadium in Ranchi i.e. Home Town of Ms.Dhoni.
