17:40 (IST)

Australia would be delighted to clinch the ODI series with a game to go. India won the previous bilateral ODI series in Australia in 2019, so it would have felt like sweet revenge to win the match today. The heavy margin of victories in both matches was like added bonus but the heavy defeats are a major cause of concern for India. They have managed to score over 300 in both these matches but conceding 374 and 389 runs points towards major bowling issues and that needs to be sorted soon. We are done for today but tune in again after a couple of days for the third ODI. Thanks and bye!

Aaron Finch, Australia captain: It was I guess (perfect perfomance with the bat). Very pleased to wrap it up in two wins. No idea (on Warner's fitness). We have to reshuffle, don't think he'll be available. The way Davey played up front was unbelievable. Then Smithy played out of his skin for two matches in a row. Henriques bowled to a simple plan and changed his pace a lot.

Steve Smith: Another great foundation set by Finch and Davey. That allowed me go hard at the back end. We know India have a good batting line-up so we needed big totals. I tried to whack the ball too hard in the IPL but I've started hitting it with more finesse.

Virat Kohli, India captain: Yeah that's right, we have been outplayed. We did not pick areas where we wanted to with the ball. We had to bowl in one area for long but we did not. Chase was bit too steep. We had to keep hitting througout the innings. They took all close chances. Well, it was out of nowhere. I asked him how he was feeling and he said I am ok.
