India won the second ODI vs Australia by 50 runs IN Kolkata on Thursday and this is Kohli and his team's eighth straight win in ODIs.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (27)  bowled an impressive first spell of pace and swing as he finished with brilliant figures of 6.1-2 -9-3 including the wicket of dangerous David Warner.

“Bhuvi's spell setup the game for us, along with those two spinners. To be honest, the wicket wasn’t that easy to bat on throughout the day. Bhuvi's spell became even more important because we knew the wrist spinners would do damage in the middle overs. He really set the tone, and his spell was outstanding. Thats what he brings to the table. Two young guys bowling with a lot of heart speaks volumes of their character. Keeps the competition going among the 20-25 (probables) with the World Cup coming up. We have a lot of options, and we have all bases covered. I always try to create that kind of motivation for myself. I try to same in the same zone more or less when I come out to play,” Indian captain Virat Kohli told reporters after the game.

This is India's second best streak in ODIs. India won nine consecutive matches from 14 November, 2008 to 05 February, 2009 under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. 

The scene now shifts to Indore, where the two sides meet this Sunday, with the hosts one game away from clinching the series. 

Australia have not won a single match away from home in their last 12 ODIs. Their last overseas win came against Ireland at Benoni in 2016.
