It was the second wicket for India after Mohammed Shami had dismissed Australia captain Aaron Finchin the 23rd over for 60. However, Smith and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship for Australia with a 50-run stand to put the hosts back in charge.
Earlier, Finch won the toss and elected to bat in Sydney. Indian bowlers once again failed to find breakthrough early on with Finch and Warner finding boundaries with ease.
The Australian opener targeted Navdeep Saini and took on the Indian pacer, much like they did in the first ODI.
Finch finally fell to Shami after getting a leading edge, and Warner departed soon after to give India some hope.
Smith, however, got going almost immediately, notching yet another half-century.
There were a couple of surprises from India captain Virat Kohliwith Mayank Agarwal and Hardik Pandya being thrown the ball.
India lost the opening ODI by 66 runs and need to win today to stay alive in the three-match series.
