5.48pm Presentation

Player of the Match is Mitchell Starc: "I feel like my rhythm has been good for a few weeks now and I guess the last couple of nights I've got the ball to shape in the air and do a little bit off the wicket so it's feeling in a good place and hopefully it continues. The role I play is being slightly fuller and more attacking than the other guys which in turn can be not as economical, a bit more expensive but I think it brings in all the dismissals a bit more."

Australia captain Steven Smith: "It was a quick one. 37 overs for the game, you don't see that too often. I thought our bowlers were outstanding. Mitchell Starc in particular with that new ball swinging it back down the line and putting them under early pressure and he complemented really well with the rest of our bowling group. I didn't know how the wicket was going to play and how much it was going to swing. The way that Mitch and Heady went out and went after them was impressive. Putting them under pressure. When you're chasing 118 you can break the back of it really quickly."

India captain Rohit Sharma: "It is disappointing. No doubt about that. We didn't play to our potential. We didn't apply ourselves with the bat. We always knew that was not enough runs. It was not a 117 pitch at all. By no means. We just didn't apply ourselves. [Starc] is a quality bowler. He's been doing it for years for Australia with the new ball. He kept bowling to his strength and we kept falling to his strength. That's something that we need to understand and play accordingly. All their bowlers bowled really well and put us under pressure."

5.45pm Vishal Dikshit notes: Left-arm quicks troubling India in ODIs - four of the five best figures (by quicks) in the last five years.

5.40pm Alagappan Muthu notes: This is India's heaviest ODI defeat in terms of balls remaining.

Vaibhav: "Can we have a T20 game since ground is booked for 100 overs." The crowd will want their money back.

5.29pm What a drubbing. Australia win by 10 wickets with 39 overs to spare. That was a frightening display of hitting from Marsh and Head. The game was set up by Mitchell Starc with the ball but that batting was incredible. No fear from the duo and some spectacular striking.

Mitchell Marsh on Star: "It was a bit of fun. When you're chasing a short total like that it's always important to get off to a good start. I was actually hoping Heady would get off to a flyer so I could nick and nudge them around. But we both got going and it was a lot of fun."

Travis Head on Star: "It's been nice to contribute. It was really good to get a partnership going. We were a bit more settled today. Last game I went a bit hard early and tried to push the envelope a little bit but it's nice to have the big fella at the other end when he hits them into the top tier."
