10.45pm Presentation

Player of the match is Cameron Green: "Kind of got thrown in the deep end a little bit but it was nice to bat with Finchy. He is an experienced campaigner and keeps you calm in the middle. It was kind of nice. We had the luxury of watching the Indians bat. Hardik played beautifully. He has to be the best in the world at what he does. It kind of gave us an idea of how to go about it."

Aaron Finch: "It was a good contest. Obviously the dew helped us at the back end. Some really good partnerships from us. I thought the intent of all our guys, the way that they just attacked their match ups and really took it on and tried to change the momentum of the game was really good. That's all we're after at the moment."

Rohit Sharma: "I don't think we bowled that well. 200 is a good score to defend and at the same time we didn't take our chances on the field. That's about it. I think we batted brilliantly to get to that score. It was a great game for us to understand where we went wrong and what we can do better in the next game. For us it was just about that one wicket between Wade and Tim David. And we were not able to do that. I think they got a 60-odd partnership in 32 balls, which was a turning point from their perspective."

10.30pm Australia conceded their highest ever total against India in a T20I and then mowed it down with 4 wickets in hand 4 balls to spare. It is Australia's second-highest successful T20I chase. Cameron Green and Matthew Wade were the stars at either end of the innings but they had contributors throughout. India can blame their fielding as much as their bowling. Axar was sensational but every other bowler went for more than 11 per over. Matthew Wade: "At this ground it didn't worry us too much. Anywhere between 12-14 an over at the back end on a wicket like this and an outfield like this we back ourselves to get them."

Khan: "How can you leave Green out of the world cup squad, Australia?"
