Virat Kohli and the Indian cricket team took the nets in scorching conditions in Adelaide ahead of the second ODI against Australia. The temperature in the city is touching a searing 37 degrees Celsius and is expected to cross 40 on the day of the match. The pitch is covered but to ensure that moisture remains on it in the heat.
India came into the first ODI in Sydney as favourites to win thanks largely to the historic 2-1 Test series that preceded it. But Australia pulled off an upset, managing to defend a target of 289 despite Rohit Sharma scoring a 129-ball 133. Jhye Richardson, who was man of the match, and Jason Behrendorff managed to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu within the first five overs.
