David Warner Leads Australia's First Win over India

David Warner Leads Australia's First Win over India

On his 100th ODI, Warner became the eighth batsman to score a century as he finished his innings with 124 runs off 119 balls (4x12, 6x4).

Maxwell smashed 39 from 18 in Australia's rain-shortened innings in the series' first match in Chennai, but has since struggled to make an impact with scores of 14 and five in Kolkata and Indore respectively.

A blistering 231-run opening stand between Aaron Finch and David Warner laid the platform for the tourists.

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Lokesh Rahul. Sharma was run out. While batting, Australia suffered a collapse from 231/0 to 236/3, with both openers and the risky Steven Smith back in the shed, and it seemed like a case of deja vu. Peter Handscomb (43) and Travis Head (29) slogged to a 63-run stand during the lull. Umesh was the most successful bowler for India scalping four wickets, but he gave away 71 runs from his 10 overs. Smooth Nathan Coulter-Nile bowled with just a four-step run-up which proves his calibre. They tore apart Adam Zampa with Pandya placing two consecutive sixes over midwicket. Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav worked hard to put up 76 for the fifth wicket. In the end, they fell short by 21 runs.

Virat Kohli said Sunil Gavaskar's comments on the quality of the current Indian side is definitely "motivating" but that his men and himself will be happy only if they start winning overseas. We were pretty optimistic. If we can replicate this form when we go overseas and play in alien conditions, we can then sit down and be happy with what we have done so far.

With the fate of the latest Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare coming down to the wire in Washington , Gov. Paul becoming a yes vote because his demands are too severe. "We're going to press on", Graham said during the debate.

The only respite for the fast bowlers was taking the pace off the deliveries.

Smith was delighted to have finally won a game, and said: "Nice to get a win in".

David Warner and Aaron Finch helped restore some of that pride with some magnificent hitting at the top of the order, the former chalking up a superb 124 in his 100th ODI. Two overs later, Kohli got out trying to play the same shot.

"We were looking for people to perform, and in his [Maxwell] last 20 games, he probably hasn't done that for us". If they had put on 40-50 more, it would have been ideal for us", Kohli said, quickly adding, "Things don't go your way all the time.
