Australia in India ODI Series - 1st ODI

India v Australia

Australia won by 72 runs

18.2

Jadeja to Hughes, OUT, Would you believe it! Dhoni has a leg slip positioned just behind and Hughes obliges by taking a back of a length delivery which spins into him, and he eases it behind, but straight into the clutches of Raina. My feeling is that he did not see him there in the first place, and mixed with the amount of turn, ends up leading to his downfall

PJ Hughes c Raina b Jadeja 47 (73m 53b 5x4 0x6) SR: 88.67

Australia 110/1   AJ Finch 60* (57b 8x4 3x6)   RA Jadeja 2.2-0-12-1

19.1

Yuvraj Singh to Watson, OUT, How prophetic am I? He has taken out the Big Kahuna, with Watson lofting a fuller delivery on and around off straight into the waiting hands of Jadeja at long on

SR Watson c Jadeja b Yuvraj Singh 2 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 113/2   AJ Finch 61* (58b 8x4 3x6)   Yuvraj Singh 0.1-0-0-1

27.1

Yuvraj Singh to Finch, OUT, flighted delivery outside off and Yuvraj is having a whale of a time as he gets Finch to go for the lofted shot, but ends up mishitting this straight up in the air, which carries to Virat Kohli, one of India's best fielders, who is waiting at long off. Big wicket for India as Finch was threatening to play a big innings

AJ Finch c Kohli b Yuvraj Singh 72 (98m 79b 8x4 3x6) SR: 91.13

Australia 146/3   GJ Bailey 22* (27b 3x4)   Yuvraj Singh 4.1-0-20-2

31.6

I Sharma to Bailey, OUT, back of a length outside off and the Aussies take on Yuvraj's fielding, as he swoops in towards point and fires in a throw at the striker's end which Voges, who dives in vain, is unable to get to. However, once he gets past the crease, he curls into the fetus position, as he seems to be in some pain. But as I glance over he is walking back to the dressing room as the third umpire confirms it is out. A huge cheer rings from the Pune crowd

AC Voges run out 7 (15m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

Australia 172/4   GJ Bailey 41* (43b 5x4)   I Sharma 5-0-35-0

37.6

Vinay Kumar to Maxwell, OUT, he has thrown it away, he tries to play a similar shot to what he played off the last delivery, but the length was slightly short, and he ends up toe-ending it straight to cover

GJ Maxwell c RG Sharma b Vinay Kumar 31 (21m 23b 1x4 3x6) SR: 134.78

Australia 214/5   GJ Bailey 52* (56b 5x4)   R Vinay Kumar 6-1-35-1

42.2

Ashwin to Haddin, OUT, this one is plumb, Haddin was deep in his crease and tried to flick this flatter delivery towards the leg side, but it was pushed a bit quicker too and Haddin was beaten to be hit right in front of the middle stump. That would have gone on to hit the top of the middle

BJ Haddin lbw b Ashwin 10 (13m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Australia 231/6   GJ Bailey 59* (68b 5x4)   R Ashwin 7.2-0-38-1

46.3

Ashwin to Bailey, OUT, and he holes out at deep midwicket! The shot was on though, it was a tossed up delivery on off and Bailey aimed for the stands at deep midwicket, he just doesn't get as much as he would have liked behind that and the fielder takes a simple catch right on the edge of the boundary

GJ Bailey c Raina b Ashwin 85 (89m 82b 10x4 0x6) SR: 103.65

Australia 264/7   JP Faulkner 7* (11b)   R Ashwin 9.3-0-53-2

49.2

I Sharma to Faulkner, OUT, Ishant gives a stare to the batsman! It was another wide and full delivery, and unlike the previous delivery, Faulkner gets a whole lot of bat in this one, times this one perfectly, but just hits it at catchable hight at Vinay Kumar at extra cover. The fielder times his jump and plucks it

JP Faulkner c Vinay Kumar b I Sharma 27 (28m 22b 0x4 2x6) SR: 122.72

Australia 293/8   MG Johnson 9* (6b 2x4)   I Sharma 6.2-0-45-1
