Australia v India

Australia won by 65 runs (D/L method)

5.1

Vinay Kumar to Warner, OUT, he's bowled Warner! they have not allowed him an inch of room, apart from one wide delivery, this one was pitched up from around the wicket, coming in on the stumps, Warner lunged at it and had a big heave, missed, and the ball rattled the middle stump, Vinay is pumped up, some relief for him after he was taken apart by Warner in Perth

DA Warner b Vinay Kumar 6 (24m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Australia 15/1   MS Wade 8* (17b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 2.1-0-4-1

7.5

Vinay Kumar to Ponting, OUT, he's got Ponting now, Vinay has bowled much better deliveries than this one today, Ponting saw some rare width and went to punch it, it seemed to sit up a tad from short of a length and he ended up hitting it straight to short extra cover

RT Ponting c Raina b Vinay Kumar 2 (11m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Australia 19/2   MS Wade 10* (21b 1x4)   R Vinay Kumar 3.5-0-6-2

RG Sharma to Clarke, OUT, Clarke takes on the flighted ball from around the stumps and lofts it straight to deep midwicket, part-timer picks up a crucial wicket

MJ Clarke c R Sharma b RG Sharma 10 (24m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 47.61

Australia 49/3   MS Wade 29* (41b 2x4 1x6)   RG Sharma 0.4-0-3-1

22.6

R Sharma to Wade, OUT, inside-edged on to the stumps, Wade was getting beaten on the cut by the quick deliveries, he looked to open up and pull this time, the ball was not short enough, and he plays on, fantastic innings on ODI debut though

MS Wade b R Sharma 67 (92m 69b 4x4 2x6) SR: 97.10

Australia 122/4   MEK Hussey 35* (22b 3x4)   R Sharma 3-0-16-1

26.1

Vinay Kumar to MEK Hussey, OUT, not the best delivery he has bowled today, way too short outside off, but Michael Hussey has shovelled the pull straight to deep square leg, he's given the run-rate a serious boost though

MEK Hussey c Kohli b Vinay Kumar 45 (45m 32b 4x4 0x6) SR: 140.62

Australia 154/5   DJ Hussey 21* (10b 1x4 1x6)   R Vinay Kumar 5.1-0-8-3
