Result: India thrash Australia in second one-day international

India hammer Australia by nine wickets in the second ODI between the sides in Jaipur.

India have thrashed Australia by nine wickets in the second one-day international between the sides in Jaipur.

The seven-match series is now tied at 1-1 following the Aussies' 72-run victory in Pune last weekend.

The tourists won the toss and chose to bat first before going on to make a score of 359-9 from their 50 overs.

However, an unbeaten 141 from Rohit Sharma helped India get to 362-1 with 39 balls remaining.

George Bailey top scored during Australia's innings with an unbeaten knock of 92, while there were also big scores for Phil Hughes (83), Aaron Finch (50), Shane Watson (59) and Glenn Maxwell (53).

Vinay Kumar did the most damage with the ball as he took two wickets, while Ravichandran Ashwin got in on the act with a wicket of his own.

Meanwhile, Finch and Maxwell were both run out by the quick Indian outfield.

Despite being given a big target to chase, India's top order were in dominant form with the bat and made light work of Australia's bowlers.

Sharma smashed his 141 off 123 balls, while Shikhar Dhawan made 95 before he was dismissed by James Faulkner.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli scored the fastest ODI century by an Indian as he reached the landmark off 52 balls.
