Australia v India LIVE updates: David Warner injures groin, Virat Kohli holds key for India as Australia maintain control

BACK-TO-BACK FOURS!!

Rahul CRACKS Starc through the covers with a powerful cut shot and Starc leaks 13 runs in his first over back in the attack.

Kohli then begins the next over from Henriques with a huge hook shot that bounces once before clearing the rope.

It turns out that Australia’s top-order performance was even more impressive than first thought

SIX!!

Starc’s first ball back in the attack is a half-volley on leg stump and Kohli’s eyes light up as he whips it off his pads and over the backward square leg fence! Get that out of here!

Shane Warne describes that as “buffet bowling” in the commentary box.

Freak with the bat. Freak with the ball. Is there anything this man can’t do?

Is the Port Adelaide midfielder onto something here?

Who said Australia and India were fierce rivals?

STEVE SMITH TAKES A SCREAMER!!

Iyer attempts to dispatch a slow bouncer from Henriques to the boundary, but Smith dives to his right and takes a spectacular two-handed catch at mid-wicket!

Smith shows once again that he is just as good in the field as he is when he has a bat in his hands.

It’s a great moment for Henriques who has had to wait three years to take an ODI wicket.

Just as India looked like building some meaningful momentum, they lose another wicket at a crucial time.

Iyer departs for 38 off 36 balls, including five fours, and Rahul is the new man in.

FOUR!

Kohli treats a loose Zampa delivery with contempt and sweeps it into the backward square boundary.

That is the Indian captain’s 59th ODI half-century and he is giving his country a glimmer of hope.

And don’t the fans love it?

ANOTHER FOUR!

Iyer whacks it JUST over Maxwell at mid-wicket and it races away to the boundary rope.

FOUR!

Kohli latches onto a short leg-side delivery from Maxwell and thumps it into the midwicket boundary.

This has been a good period for India, ticking over eight- and nine-run overs without taking too many risks.

They’re staying within striking distance of their mammoth target of 390.
