Adelaide: Shaun Marsh scored his seventh ODI hundred and lent the Australian innings respectability in the second match of the series against India in Adelaide on Tuesday. 

Marsh's poor Test run against India made him fall out of favour with the selectors in the five-day format, but with this innings and the one in the first ODI in Sydney, Marsh has shown signs of returning to form.  

The left-hander stitched together useful partnerships with Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell and steered the hosts out of troubled waters after India had reduced them to 82/3 in the 19th over. 

Marsh did not have the best of times in the recently-concluded Test series against Virat Kohli and Co. Following this, he was dropped from the squad for the two-Test series against Sri Lanka, which is slated to start from February 1. Marsh, though, had scored a useful 54 in the first match of the ongoing ODI series against India. 

Marsh had gathered 2,366 runs in ODIs before this match at an average of 40.79. The Adelaide innings will boost those numbers considerably. 

Marsh finally fell in the 48th over, trying to up the ante, caught at long-off by Ravindra Jadeja off the bowling of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Marsh's classy knock of 131 was studded with 11 boundaries and three sixes and came off 123 deliveries.
