Rajkot not happy hunting ground for India

India have lost both ODIs played at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium

Hosts India have a dismal ODI record at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium in Khanderi as they have lost on both the previous occasion when they played at the venue.

India first played an ODI at the SCA Stadium on January 11, 2013, against England and lost by nine-runs in a thriller. Then they played their second ODI against South Africa at the same venue on October 18, 2015, and this time they lost by 18 runs.

So, the Virat Kohli-led side, who are 0-1 down in the three-match series, would surely like to change the record to keep themselves afloat in the series.

Meanwhile, Australia is unbeaten in 50-over format when they have played in Rajkot. Australia have played only one ODI against India here and won that game.

The team from Down Under then played alone T20 at the SCA Stadium where they suffered a drubbing at the hands of the hosts.

Australia first played in Rajkot on October 7, 1986, at the old stadium and Australia had won the match by 7 wickets, chasing a 261-run target, with then skipper Allan Border remaining unbeaten on 91.

Then a T20 match between the two sides was played at SCA Stadium on October 10, 2013, which was won by the hosts by six wickets.
