Stat of the day: Aaron Finch and David Warner's 258-run partnership was the biggest in history for any team for any wicket against India.

An update on Pant is expected after the match.

Australia lead the three-match series 1-0 after winning the first ODI by 10 wickets.

Warner raised his 18th ODI hundred in 88 balls with a boundary off Indian quick Jasprit Bumrah as he jumped with joy and kissed his helmet to celebrate the knock.

He did not join India's training in the break between innings and it was Rahul who was seen practicing his glovework as the Australian openers walked out. His gritty 74 off 91 deliveries and second-wicket partnership of 121 runs with KL Rahul had given India a ideal start.

Wicketkeeper Pant - who suffered a concussion after top-edging Cummins onto his helmet and into the hands of Ashton Turner - was unable to take the field for Australia's reply, with Rahul taking over the gloves in his absence. KL Rahul had made 47 with the rest of the batsmen failing to impress with the bat.

Pat Cummins was brought back from the other end to send Dhawan back to the pavilion after flicking the ball to cover where Agar took the catch. However, he lasted only 14 balls, hitting leg-spinner Adam Zampa for a six before offering a return catch to the bowler on the very next delivery to be out for 16.

Pant did not need any immediate treatment on the field after he was hit, and he was able to walk off it on his own steam as well, but it soon became clear that he was indisposed. But Kane Richardson claimed Jadeja and Cummins got Pant for 28.

The second of the three ODIs will be played in Rajkot on Friday (January 17) and another flat wicket is set to test India again.
