The ODI series opener at Perth proved to be really exciting and went down to the wire. India will be looking to level the series in the second ODI as they look positive after putting runs on the board in the first ODI.
Australia will host India in the 2nd ODI at the Gabba in Brisbane on Friday, Jan. 15, starting 1:20 pm local time.
