Rohit and Manish fifties buoy Indians

The Indians needed a pair of half-centuries from Rohit Sharma and Manish Pandey to patch up an underwhelming batting performance, but their bowlers had little trouble defending 249 against Western Australia XI in the warm-up one-dayer at the WACA

Two Indian batsmen scored 74 runs, one Western Australian. So India won by 74. Makes sense

So a productive day in the middle for India. Two of their main batsmen got a proper hit, they scored fifties. Dhoni hit a couple of sixes. Sran has had a good first outing in that blue shirt with two wickets. Spinners were too good for WA. India didn't try anything fancy: no retirements to let everybody have a go, no risking Mohammad Shami. Perhaps they will do all that tomorrow, when they play Western Australia XI in a 50-over game. Thanks for joining us for this
