India A 275 for 6 (Jadhav 78, Dhawan 56*, Tiwary 50) beat Australia A 274 for 5 (White 137, Hughes 51, Kulkarni 3-51) by four wickets
Scorecard

Rishi Dhawan and Akshar Patel held their nerve during a counterattacking partnership of 93 in 12.3 overs for the seventh wicket to stun Australia A in the Quadrangular Series final at Marrara Oval. The target of 275 looked distant when India A had slumped to 51 for 3, and later to 182 for 6, but Australia's bowlers struggled to dislodge Akshar and Dhawan, both promising allrounders, and India completed the chase with more than an over to spare.

That India got to a fighting position after the initial hiccup was thanks to Manoj Tiwary and Kedar Jadhav, who struck half-centuries. The four individual performances overshadowed Cameron White's efforts earlier in the day, when he scored 137 to take Australia to a competitive total.

Dhawan and Akshar came together after Jadhav fell for 78 in the 37th over, slicing Ben Cutting to short third man. Dhawan had a few close calls when he played forceful shots in the air and was lucky the ball dropped just short of the fielders. Australia paid for not converting those half chances. At the end of the 39th over, the required rate had risen above seven, and though the early part of the partnership didn't feature too many boundaries, Dhawan and Akshar ensured they stayed in the game by keeping dot balls to a minimum.

The real acceleration began in the 45th over, when India needed 45. The legspinner Cameron Boyce leaked 15 in an over as Akshar launched him over long-on and then slogged him to deep midwicket for a four. It brought the equation down to a run a ball and India collected a boundary in each of the next four overs to close the door on the Australians. Dhawan was harsh on the seamer Kane Richardson, reaching his fifty with a paddle down to fine leg. Akshar scored the winning runs with a cut to the point boundary off Clint McKay in the 49th over.

India had begun the chase nervously, losing their top three by the 11th over. Ambati Rayudu was the third wicket to fall, but he didn't appear convinced with the lbw decision off Cutting. Jadhav and Tiwary helped India recover with a steady stand of 82 in 16 overs. Cutting ended the stand when Tiwary hooked a bouncer to long leg, falling for 50 off 75 balls. Jadhav reached his fifty off only 48 balls and his positive batting kept India in the hunt. Sanju Samson's run-out gave Australia the edge, but the well-set Jadhav remained crucial to India's chances. His departure tested the mettle of the allrounders, who were not intimidated by the asking rate.

Australia had been primed for a total in excess of 300 after winning the toss, considering the start provided by the openers White and Phillip Hughes. The pair put on 146 in just under 27 overs before Hughes pulled a short ball off Dhawal Kulkarni to short fine leg for 51. White raced to his century in the 31st over and he fell in the 44th, hitting ten fours and five sixes. The seamers restricted the hosts towards the later stages of the innings, with Kulkarni getting White caught at long-on and then yorking Moises Henriques.

Mitchell Marsh holed out to deep midwicket the following over as Australia looked to regain lost ground. Cutting's brisk 35 off 21 balls took Australia to 274, but it wasn't enough to sink India, who took the title with their sixth consecutive win on tour.

    Mr. Dhoni's XI for England ODI would be.Rohit, Shikar, Kohli, Raina, Rahane Dhoni, Jadeja, Rishi, Mohit, Bhuvi ( will not be rested AT ALL) Aaron. But the ideal XI would be : Gambhir, Vijay, Kohli, Raina, Kedhar, Rahane, Dhoni, Jadeja, Bhuvi, Rishi and Aaron. Why bcos Shikar and Rohit will be EASY PICKINGS for England. By the 2nd over we would be 2 for 2. We need solid starts, as 275 is a match winning score in English conditions, compared to 320 in sub continent conditions. Therefore Rohit and Shikar shall wait until next series in subcontinent.

    @dunger.bob. Agree with you. The weather is sensational in Darwin this time of year, these type of competitions are good for everyone. I also see there maybe a few Tests scheduled there in the future during our off season. It is isolated for us, but Darwin is another type of city so different from any other down here. The pitches are different, but up to standard. I wouldn't take a great deal as a pointer for tests, but the experience would have been invaluable.

  • Naresh28 on August 3, 2014, 20:15 GMT

    Some promising talent coming thru. Because of India's huge talent base we find that youngsters (e.g. Samson) will only play when in their 30's. Our young talent has proved time and again U19, emerging talent - that they can play outside India.We have won many tournaments outside India. Our selectors get clouded and dont choose the teams properly.

  • dunger.bob on August 3, 2014, 2:21 GMT

    Congratulations to India A. I watched a bit of the commentary on cricinfo and I've got to say they timed their run beautifully. It became obvious about 5 overs from the end that they would win.

    No excuses, no if's, but's or maybe's, we were beaten fair and square so well played to the Indians. .. I'd also like to add that I think these tournaments in our off season look like a good idea and I'm all for it. We have suitable weather this time of year in Northern Australia, so why not use it?

  • tonvarg on August 3, 2014, 2:14 GMT

    Its kinda funny to see people comparing samson with Ojha and stating Ojha is better, well guys have a look at their ages?? By the time Samson becomes as old as Ojha, believe me he will be a better player! To me, he is already as good as or better player than Ojha!

  • baskar_guha on August 2, 2014, 20:16 GMT

    Awesome win by India A. Never easy against Aus in Aus. Keep the spirit and confidence for future international cricket.

  • parikshit_Ops on August 2, 2014, 18:06 GMT

    Kedar Jadhav has certainly shown that he is more than ready for International Cricket. he is nearing 30 and may not continue his form for a long time. Its right time to utilize him in International Cricket both ODI and Tests. I have already talked about Sanju Samson. Dhawal has also performed well and I think he is the highest wicket taker in tournament.But I am quite happy to see that now we have a long list of people who can play the role of all-rounders. The newest additions are A.Patel and r.Dhawan. Indian cricket future looks bright

  • VinodGupte on August 2, 2014, 17:15 GMT

    kedar jadhav and dhawal kulkarni instead of nohit sharma and mohd shami for the upcoming AUS tour.

  • on August 2, 2014, 15:37 GMT

    Dhawan is better bet than Stuart Binny in terms of long term I would put Ojha above Samson

  • on August 2, 2014, 15:31 GMT

    kedhar jadhav must be in the indian squad in all formats

  • Moortops on August 2, 2014, 15:18 GMT

    Now, what else Kedhar jadhav needs to do, to get a slot in Indian squad. It will be quite apparent for those who have been following and watching him play, that there is an element of genius in his style and performance. He is a dominant player, a la KP. So let the selectors waste no time, in giving him an opportunity. The million dollar question is, whether Mr MSD will give a chance to him to play in the 11, or will make him warm the benches like he did to Manoj Twary, when he was at his best form. Only GOD and Mr MSD can deliver the answer.

  • subcontinent-expert on August 2, 2014, 14:37 GMT

    Well done guys.. From past few years Indian young players have done well in Australia winning Emerging Trophy so this win is not shocking at all... Our young guns are talented enough to get a place in Indian team.. Problem remains is the bowling department though....

  • on August 2, 2014, 14:28 GMT

    One wonders, what happens to so many excellent players, after they reach this kind of wonderful success, that too against such good opposition? Does Peter principle sets in? Like Managers who keep on getting promoted TILL they reach their level of incompetence, as some of the seniors are displaying in En gland?

  • on August 2, 2014, 14:16 GMT

    last time also Ind did well

  • on August 2, 2014, 13:48 GMT

    @Akshay Velayudhan- Sure that can happen and Sanju deserves to be in the team(I never said Sanju shouldn't be in the team but just that he can't replace MSD as Sanju himself is a wicketkeeper batsman as well) but he can't replace MSD..I never supported Rohit as I consider him a zombie with the bat.. He bats like a zombie and throw way his wicket for no reason at all after getting good starts.. Yes, Sanju can replace him anyday..

  • on August 2, 2014, 13:15 GMT

    Arun Bose, we can play him as a pure batsman and MS's understudy..Much better than Mr.Nohit any day!!

  • on August 2, 2014, 13:13 GMT

    well done india A

  • baghels.a on August 2, 2014, 13:10 GMT

    I would like to Congratulate India A for winning the trophy and also for the remarkable run of six consecutive victories, well done boys !!! Everybody contributed in this campaign barring Robin Uthappa which is a shame because Robin is one mighty fine player. Even those like Unmukt Chand,Manish Pandey,Rasool who didn't make the xi for the final made some worthy contributions along the way.Among the batters Samson,Kedhar Jadhav,Manan Vohra were standouts, i am excluding M.Tiwary and Rayudu because they are experienced players with India caps and i expect more out of them.Among the bowlers Dhawal,Mohit ,Akshar,Karn Sharma all bowled well.

    Since IPL was the last tournament most of these guys played before this tour,almost all of them carried there IPL form to this tournament so it is all the more surprising that Best Indian batter in IPL Uthappa failed so badly here, this should not be held against Robin as he has scored consistently in Vijay Hazare,Ranji,Irani trophy,IPL.

  • CricketChat on August 2, 2014, 12:56 GMT

    Another win for Ind A and another failure for Robin Uthappa! Ind sr team must insist on having Robin instead Dhawan. They both are failures currently, but Ind sr team could use some luck with Robin in the team!

  • Rahul_is_king on August 2, 2014, 12:43 GMT

    Absolutely agree with Arun Bose, MSD seems to struggle at test level because of his technique, but when it comes to the one day format, no one, and i mean no one is better than MS when it comes to striking a cricket ball. He must be part of the one day team, but as for test cricket, i think he should be replaced as his technique just doesnt suit the format - he always looks vulnerable to bowlers which is a big problem. Ishwar Pandey must also play the next test match - a big tall fellow is what we need and someone who has the fearsome look of a fast bowler and Pandey has all those qualities. The current bowlers just do not look threatening or attacking. We need someone with similar traits to Anderson, Steyn, Johnson.

  • on August 2, 2014, 12:26 GMT

    Robin really disappointed i dnt understand what happens Robin suddenly..its great loss him and his fans . selctore dnt giving chance in England odis sure he will back india and constrate on champions league and domestic odi after let's see hope from best bt almost gone his fiche cricket.....He can play now only ipl

  • on August 2, 2014, 12:24 GMT

    Patel and Karen even Rasool provide more bowling options . Jadhav should be in one day team

  • on August 2, 2014, 12:21 GMT

    Congratulations to India A on winning the quadrangular series in Australia beating Australia in the final.. It's a great achievement for these young Indians and we are very proud of you guys.. Everyone played really well to achieve this feat but some ppl are saying Sanju Samson should be in the senior ODI team but replacing whom? MSD? For your kind information MSD may not be good at test level but nobody can beat him in ODIs in any part of the world..He's the best finisher in the game and a superb captain in ODIs as well..Sanju is a fine player but he can't replace MSD in the senior team..How soon ppl forget that MSD won us the worldcup after 28 long years! Disrespecting a great player and captain like him only shows that Indian fans have such short term memory.. Worse than Aamir Khan in Ghajini.. C'mon guys, MSD is still the best in the world when it comes to ODIs..Not just bcz of his batting but wicketkeeping and captaincy as well... He deserves some respect from us.. Give him that..

  • on August 2, 2014, 12:11 GMT

    After this, If we don't see sanju Samson, akshar Patel, rishi dhawan and kedar jadav in the senior team, something is terribly wrong with the indian cricket !

  • paramnp9 on August 2, 2014, 12:10 GMT

    Will the selectors be bold enough to pick the following team for ODIs against England. Rahane, Pujara, Kohli, Rohit, Kedar Jadhav, Sanju Vishwanath, Dhoni, Akshar Patel, Rishi Dhawan, Dhawal Kulkarni, Bhuvaneswar Kumar, Mohamed Shami, Karn Sharma, R Jadeja and Bumrah. We can also consider Aprajith and Manoj Tiwari. If he was fit, Sandeep also was a sure candidate. Let us not keep going back to Vinay, Amit Mishra, Uthappa, etc as they had got enough chances. Aaron and Umesh also need support as they are quicker than the others.

  • paramnp9 on August 2, 2014, 11:56 GMT

    Good show by Sanju, Kedar, Akshar and Rishi. In testing conditions down under, this triumph is creditable. They deserve to be in senior ODI team. Sandeep Sharma, Bumrah and Karn are also good prospects. Keep up the good show, young guys.

  • on August 2, 2014, 11:51 GMT

    Many bright prospects in India A team but not sure whether these talented players will be considered or not. Politics rules in India not only in cricket but everywhere.

    The only reason why Stuart Binny is in Indian team is because of Roger Binny(one of the selector). Actually, There are better fast bowling allrounders than bits and pieces Binny. Some of them: Rishi Dhawan, Irfan Pathan, Rajat Bhatia, Abhishek Nayar etc.(Please go through their stats).

    Lot of talent getting wasted in India for years. If we observe most of the times, Our Under 19 teams perform better in foreign conditions than other teams.

    My 15 for World cup:

    Kohli, Rahane, Raina, Dhoni*, Jhadav, Sampson* (Batsman), adeja, Akshar patel, Ashwin (Spin allrounders), Rishi Dhawan, Bhuvneswar (Fast allrounders), Dhawal Kulkarni, Ishant Sharma, Bumrah, Umesh (Fast bowling)

    Best possible 11 for Australian conditions:

    Rahane, Sampson, Kohli, Raina, Jhadav, Dhoni, Rishi Dhawan, Ashwin/Jadeja, Bhuvneswar,D.Kulkarni, Bumrah

  • on August 2, 2014, 11:42 GMT

    Big flop show by overrated ROBIN UTTAPPA. He is a walking wicket in seaming conditions. Dhawan n rohit r technically more sound than robbin uttappa. Manoj tiwary must bat at 4 for india in ODI's as rahane has poor record in odi's. India must give rest to bhuvi for odi's and play kulkarni,mohit,ishwar and varun aaron is odi's.

  • on August 2, 2014, 11:18 GMT

    Young Guns r shaping up!!! India A won final against Australia A in quadrangular series in Australia.. Rayadu batted responsibly but what abt Sanju Samson well he played there very consistantly he has technique temparament everything... It s high time to get jadhav and samson play for the senior team. Samson will give the flexiblity to bat any position & can take fulltime responsibily of wicket keeping also. The bcci should not further delay his progress. Mostly none of the bowlers not able to dominate him in the series in Australian condition, which showing that his level belong to senior side.. so pick him in India team as soon possible bcoz now currently he is enjoying prime time & is in really pick... so better groom him b4 worldcup at highest level & make him ready for worldcup in Australia will provide u secondary wicket-keeper option also.....

  • on August 2, 2014, 11:15 GMT

    Great work! Congrats! Feeling sorry for Robin though. Great going Sanju,good performer, deserves to be inducted into senior team soon. Would love to see BCCI organising more tours in South Africa and England to get them used to conditions and pick the good performers to senior team!

  • 2009SHAMZ on August 2, 2014, 11:15 GMT

    Hope the performance of the players in the tournament is recognised. Akshar has proved IPL performance no flash in the pan while a few others put their hand up. will be interesting to see if Robin Uthappa gets a look-in in the Indian ODI team for the England series.. Rayudu was patchy but needs a long rope too

  • on August 2, 2014, 11:13 GMT

    My team to England odis...Whatever opening combination we made to the english tour should be flope. so we can introduce Ashwin and Jadeja as openers or Rasool and Jadeja....Possitive thing is...if they fail there we can use them as handy bowlers...bt if dhawan and rohit fails then no use from them..Then Kohli, Kedar Jadav, Raina/Tiwary, Dhoni, Karan Sarma, Rishi Dhawan, Akshar Patel, Dhawal Kulkarni, Bhuvi/Mohit.....

  • Man_from_Mountains on August 2, 2014, 11:13 GMT

    This is a fantastic win for young Indian brigade. There are so many fantastic performances by some young players. First of all I would like to mention Sanju Samson and Kedar Jadav. Both on them deserves to be in Indian ODI team. Besides these two players, there are some standout performances by Rishi Dhawan, Manoj Tiwari, & Aksar Patel. The way Rishi Dhawan has batted under pressure in final suggests that he is the best seam bowling allrouder available. He must be there in ODI team which will play ODI in England later. I think, this is the right time to include all these young players in ODI team and groom until world cup. I am pretty sure, we will be able to defend our world cup crown next year if players will be selected on the basis of their performance not on past record.

  • on August 2, 2014, 11:02 GMT

    not sure how to take this series victory as a robin fan .. he failed as a batsman..but got suceed as captain... robin dissapointed his fans in national stage again.... but selectors should not see avoid selectn robin bec of this series performance.. he deserve few chances.. he is god gift cricketer who has lots of talent with lots of bad luck

  • on August 2, 2014, 10:57 GMT

    I have faith that Sandeep Patil will use this series to select the team for the England ODI series.

  • nithinadoor on August 2, 2014, 10:35 GMT

    Indian ODI team for England Series will be picked on August 7.Hope that the selectors noticed at least some of these people's performance.performance. Kedar Jadhav definitely need to given a chance now as he is nearing 30 or else he will not be be selected afterwards saying the old reason need young talents for future.Sanju is the top scorer in this series for India. Dhawal,Aksar and Rishi showed what they can do.Manoj was just fine if not considered his bowling in one match.Rayudu was not that impressive as expected.Robin was very poor through out as the expectations were very high after IPL and ODI in Bangladesh.

  • on August 2, 2014, 10:34 GMT

    The sad part is that none or not mant from the India A dude will move to the infpdia side. The Rohits and the Dhawans and the Zaheers will continue to figure in the India side despite so many promising youngsters in the wings. Selectors need a bigger vision here!!

  • on August 2, 2014, 10:32 GMT

    very well done! players from this tour must be given opportunities in England One Day Series. . Vohra is a bright prospect, is young and may not get picked ahead of seniors like Uthappa and Tiwary, but Jadhav and Akshar Patel should be given opportunity in the national side against England.

    Indian ODI team for England Series will be picked on August 7.Hope that the selectors noticed at least some of these people's performance.performance. Kedar Jadhav definitely need to given a chance now as he is nearing 30 or else he will not be be selected afterwards saying the old reason need young talents for future.Sanju is the top scorer in this series for India. Dhawal,Aksar and Rishi showed what they can do.Manoj was just fine if not considered his bowling in one match.Rayudu was not that impressive as expected.Robin was very poor through out as the expectations were very high after IPL and ODI in Bangladesh.

    Great match by both teams, congrats to India A. So good to see these A series being played in the top end during the off season, the exposure to all the young guys is immense and will definitely hold them in good stead for the upcoming domestic season.

    It was a great series for Sanju and Kedhar, both played consistently with maturity. And now we want to see it for team India..

    Atta Boys. Well Done. Akshar Patel is surely a good find for future Indian Team. He has done well in IPL too. Yet again a waste of opportunity by Robin Uthappa. A good performance here would have served him better.
