Australia Win! That's it then. Australia have beaten India by 66 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series. Mitchell Starc gets himself on the wicket-takers list after clean-bowling Mohammed Shami in the final over. Australia put up a huge score on the board with captain Aaron Finch and Steve Smith hitting centuries while Glenn Maxwell and David Warner played fabulous supportive knocks. Josh Hazlewood than ran through India's top-order to leave India reeling at 80/3 at one stage. And although Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya played two good knocks, they were both dismissed by Adam Zampa who took four wickets, the target proved too big as batsmen around them failed to convert good starts.
OUT! Adam Zampa picks his fourth wicket. Ravindra Jadeja goes back trying to clear the long-on boundary. This was another flighted delivery from Zampa and Jadeja connected well with his shot but there was no flight and he finds Starc at long-on. India seven wickets down. Jadeja c Starc b Zampa 25(37)
OUT! Hardik Pandya is gone and so are India's hopes of winning this contest. He goes for another big hit off Adam Zampa but could only find Mitchell Starc at the long on boundary rope. India's loss looks inevitable now. Hardik Pandya c Starc b Zampa 90(76)
OUT! Finally the long partnership is broken as Adam Zampa gets his first wicket of the day. Shikhar Dhawan went for a big hit but found Mitchell Starc inside the circle. Dhawan c Starc b Zampa 74(86)
Just when India looked completely out of the context, Hardik Pandya and Shikhar Dhawan scored half-centuries to keep the game hanging in balance. However, they still have a big task in hand with the game approaching its latter half.
Although India are four wickets down, their scoring rate is still over seven. Hardik Pandya and Shikhar Dhawan are the two batsmen in the middle, trying to bring the visitors back in the hunt. They have aggregated more than 50 runs but they still have a gigantic job in hand.
OUT! You just can't do that KL Rahul! It was a juicy full toss from Adam Zampa which the IPL 2020 Orange Cap-winner smashed to Steve Smith at cover. India in big trouble now. Rahul c Smith b Zampa 12(15)
OUT! While Indians were prepared for Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood came out of the syllabus. Shreyas Iyer failed to connect a big shot as the ball lobed up in the air and Alex Carey took an easy catch. Shreyas Iyer c Carey b Hazlewood 2(2)
OUT! Australia get the big fish as Virat Kohli departs after scoring just 20. Josh Hazlewood gets the price scalp as the Indian skipper fails to connect a big shot and gives an easy catch to his opposite number Aaron Finch inside the circle. Kohli c Finch b Hazlewood 21(21)
OUT! Josh Hazlewood draws the first blood as Mayank Agarwal perishes after a quick start. The opener went for another big hit but found Glenn Maxwell at cover point. Agarwal c Maxwell b Hazlewood 22(18)
