Former Australian skipper Steve Smith showed his brilliance in the field during the second ODI against India at the SCG as he took a screamer to send a well-set Shreyas Iyer back in the pavilion. It was a big wicket in the context of the match as Iyer along with India captain Virat Kohli was looking to shift gears during the mammoth 390 chase. Iyer was dismissed for 38 off 36 balls.

Earlier in the day, Smith continued his purple patch with the bat as he slammed consecutive centuries against a formidable Indian attack. He scored 104 off 64 balls. His whirlwind knock was laced with 14 fours and two sixes.
Opting to bat first, Aaron Finch and David Warner, once again dominated the Indian bowlers and shared a 142-run stand for the first wicket. Team India got the first wicket in the 23rd over as Mohammed Shami dismissed Finch for 60. Warner also joined him in the pavilion soon as Shreyas Iyer’s rocket throw stopped him for scoring a century as he got run out on 83.
At the time of filing the copy, India was 214 for three in 33 overs. Kohli was looking good for another ODI ton as he is keeping the hopes of a win alive.
