The second ODI of the three-match series between India and Australia is set to be played at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam. After winning the first ODI in Mumbai, the Indian team would want to seal the series by winning this match.

This is the first ODI at this stadium after December 2019, but it hosted a T20I match last year. In the last ODI match, Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav took a hat-trick, and the spinner will again aim to deliver in conditions that can favour the spinners.

The Indian batting duo of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma also scored centuries in the last ODI here. Rahul was excellent in the first match as well, whereas captain Sharma will also be back after missing the first ODI match.
