AUS Innings
Full commentary

India have rolled up Australia for 65, with only two of their batsmen scoring in double figures. Yadav was the star, knocking over the first five wickets to fall even before he'd finished bowling five overs himself. This would have been the biggest loss for Australia in a One-Day game, if this was an official match.

Stay with us for thoughts from both captains

George Bailey: It was a really disappointing performance, but if you have to have a day like this its better its on a practice game. This was not the result we were after. Dhoni and Karthik batted really well and we couldn't get that sixth wicket. Our new ball attack was good. We discussed that after the last game and everyone who took the new ball bowled really well

Dhoni: Well, to start off Dinesh batted really well. That partnership between me and him got us to a respectable score and then the bowling was up to the mark. We used five bowlers and all of them got wickets. Umesh is one of the quickest bowlers we have and with the two paced pitch here, the ball was holding up, not much, but just enough which was why there were so many inside edges. (When asked on his batting) I was looking to get to the best place on the field- the non-striker's end and Karthik is a great runner between the wickets. Thats something all the batsmen should work on, getting those one and a half runs into twos. (On the selection dilemma with Karthik in such good form) I think he has earned his place in the side and we'll just have to see who misses out when we play against South Africa. I'd like him to play at the top of the order but we'll see.

Well, thats about it from us here. Thanks for joining us today, but wait, there's another match still in full flow in Birmingham where Sri Lanka are putting on a fight against West Indies who put up 297 in the first innings. So stay tuned to that.

Ashwin to Voges, OUT
And its all over. Another Aussie batsman plays on. He goes deep in the crease but the ball turns and there is not enough width to play the cut shot and the inside edge is taken and it crashes into the stumps.
