A tight game and India rode on their bowlers to clinch a thrilling 8-run victory. The Men in Blue have taken a 2-0 lead in the 5-match series. That's it from us at Nagpur. Ram Kumar and Aadya Sharma signing off. Do join us on Friday for the third ODI in Ranchi. 
Player of the Match and India captain Virat Kohli: When I walk in to bat, when the situation gets difficult, I have no choice but to put my head down and bat through the innings. I'm more proud of our second innings than our first. Vijay Shankar batted outstandingly, but he was unfortunately run out and we lost Kedar and MS in quick succession. I was thinking of using Vijay in the 46th over, but I spoke to Rohit and MS, and they said, let's stick with Shami and Bumrah, and take the game deep. If they get some wickets we're on top, and that's exactly what happened. Vijay kept it stump-to-stump, kept it simple, and it worked. It's always nice to speak to Rohit, he's the vice captain, MS has been around for so long, and you go and speak to the bowler as well. I like to bounce ideas off them. Bumrah is a champion, two wickets in an over, just turned the game, happy to have him in our team. Just coming through these kinds of games gives us confidence. It's important to look ugly at times, and come through and win. We might get these low-scoring games in the World Cup as well. This kind of a pitch was tailor made for Kedar Jadhav, he was actually keen to bowl the last over as well. It felt good (on his 40th ODI century). It's just a number, but it feels good to win games for India.
Australia captain Aaron Finch: It was one of those games where you take it as deep as you can and hope you can get over the line. Marcus Stoinis played a brilliant innings. The game ebbed and flowed the whole day. We had momentum, gave it back to them, and in the end they got over the line. If Stoinis takes a risk early on and gets out, we have no chance at all, so his approach was right. Was okay to get a start today, but starts don't win games. We got 30s and 40s, they got a hundred, and that was the difference. Virat was the difference in the game. If one of our top order got 80-100, we would have probably won the game.
Time for the presentation ceremony. 
Watch this exclusive interview, a candid one, with India's match-winner Vijay Shankar! 
This is also India's 500th ODI win.
Vijay Shankar: "It was an opportunity for me. I was literally waiting for this chance. I was up for the challenge - after the 43rd over, I was telling myself that I will bowl the last over. It is about being mentally clear. It was about bowling the hard length because it was reverse swinging. I keep telling myself that I should keep working hard. I was timing the ball well and rotating the strike in the middle overs".
This is redemption for Vijay Shankar, and a win for India! After the Nidahas Trophy disappointment, Vijay has proved that he belongs to the big stage. And India has managed to defend 250 on a dry track. After a one-man show from Virat Kohli with the bat, the Indian bowlers combined in stellar fashion to choke the Australians. The Indians are 2-0 up in the five-match series.
49.3 OUT! Bowled. Vijay Shankar to Adam Zampa. Half volley, middle stump down the track driving, missed to.
49.2 Vijay Shankar to Adam Zampa. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, to point for 2 runs, mis-fielded by Jadeja, fielded by Yadav.
The match is still not over. 11 off 5 is still achievable, even though it is the last pair.
49.1 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Vijay Shankar to Marcus Stoinis. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, hit pad to gully.
Vijay Shankar has struck gold here! Slips in a straighter one below Stoinis' wild swing, it hits him plumb in front of the stumps, and this is exactly the wicket India wanted.
This is a big over for Vijay Shankar. If he manages to prove himself here, it will really hold him in good stead in the long run.
Lyon manages to squeeze out a boundary to fine leg. 11 needed off the last over.
Over 49 AUS: 240/8(RR 4.90) Bowler: M Shami Summary: . 2 1 1 1 4 |
48.6 FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Nathan Lyon. Full toss, to leg on the front foot flick, past fine leg for 4 runs.
48.5 Mohammed Shami to Marcus Stoinis. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, mis-timed to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Jadeja.
48.4 Mohammed Shami to Nathan Lyon. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Sharma.
48.3 Mohammed Shami to Marcus Stoinis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Yadav.
48.2 Mohammed Shami to Marcus Stoinis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot flick, in the air uncontrolled to square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Rayudu.
48.1 Mohammed Shami to Marcus Stoinis. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track pushing, mis-timed to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Shami.
Over 48 AUS: 231/8(RR 4.81) Bowler: J Bumrah Summary: . . . . . 1 |
47.6 Jasprit Bumrah to Marcus Stoinis. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Sharma. So Stoinis decides he won't try and target Bumrah, instead he is backing himself to score the runs required off Shami and whoever bowls the other over for India.
A valiant 50 from Stoinis under pressure. That's why he is such a valuable player, he contributes in all three departments.
20 runs off the last 2 overs is what the Aussies need. Shami to bowl the penultimate over.
Bumrah bowls a peach, almost taking the edge off Stoinis' bat.
47.5 Jasprit Bumrah to Marcus Stoinis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
