India lost the second ODI to Australia in humiliating fashion by 10 wickets as the Aussies tied the series at 1-1. The hosts completed a customary victory in the first match of the series at Wankhede by five wickets but could not continue their winning streak. Mitchell Marsh and Mitchell Starc starred in a comprehensive Australia performance as the Men in Blue flopped big time in the game. Here are three reasons behind India’s horrible show in the second ODI at Vishakhapatnam.

3. Playing one less pacer

The pacers made the difference for the visitors in the second ODI as Mitchell Starc returned with a five-wicket haul. Sean Abbott and Nathan Ellis cleaned up the rest five wickets. Conversely, India played three spinners on a flat track with only two pure pacers – Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj. Playing a more consistent pace attack could have woven a different story for the hosts.
