India vs Australia Highlights And Cricket Score 1st Match - ODI Summary

End of Over : 37.4 AUS: 258/0

That is it from this game. We expected a tough fight but it was another one-sided game of cricket in India but the twist in the tale was that it was the hosts who were decimated at their own backyard. Australia go 1-0 up in this small series with a dominant fashion. India will look to bounce back from this loss and will see this as one-off. We now move to Rajkot for the all important 2nd ODI. That game will be played on Friday, 17th January. The match will begin at 1330 local (0800 GMT). Join us for that one. Till then, cheers!

For his unbeaten knock of 128, David Warner has been adjudged the Man of the Match. Warner says that he has always had hunger and desire to score runs., Credits his fast bowlers and tells knocking India for 255 in their own backyard was incredible. Adds Finch started well and that allowed him to take his time. Says they just try to keep rotating the strike in the middle period and score odd boundaries. Tell they look to take the game deep and knew if they stuck in there till the end they could chase it with ease. Tells he enjoys fielding since childhood and used to get his clothes dirty which his mom did not like but he loves that aspect of the game. Ends by thanking the fans for coming.

Australian skipper, Aaron Finch says they fought back in the middle part with the ball and that played a huge role and he is proud of his bowlers. Finch says they can brush up in fielding but he is happy with the performance overall. On David Warner, Finch says that he has been unstoppable in this format. Tells that it is difficult to bowl to him once he is set in. Adds that it is always great to bat with him. On whether he expects India to bounce back, Finch says definitely as he knows they are a quality side.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli says that they were outplayed in all three departments. Adds that there was no intent in the middle overs with the bat and that the side was too respectful of the opposition bowlers. Further says that the Australians are a world class side and they capitalized on the openings that they got. On being asked about looking forward to the T20 format, Virat says International cricket is always priceless and game time matters and not a particular format. Adds that everyone has to step up and hopes that one of the youngsters in the middle order can play a blinder in the next two games. On being asked about his decision to come in at the number 4 position, Virat says that they have had that discussion many times in the past but they will be looking to try different things and not sticking to a single attempt. Adds that they were looking to experiment and they are allowed to do that and fail in that too once in a while. Ends by thanking the crowd and saying they were amazing.

Earlier in the day, the Australian bowlers set up the win for the tourists as they bowled out India for a paltry score of 255 on a batting pitch. No one apart from Dhawan and Rahul got going for India. The Australian bowlers were on top and the pace bowling trio of Starc, Cummins and Richardson grabbed 7 wickets amongst them with the former picking up 3 and the latter two sharing 4 wickets equally between themselves.

It was a day to forget for India. First with the bat and then with the ball. The bowlers had a sub-par total to defend but the way the Australian openers took the attack to them was something that we have not seen for a long, long time. 5 bowlers played the game and none of them had anything to smile about. Only the spinners went for less than 6 runs per over but that was because the Australian openers never had to go after them. Shami, Thakur and Bumrah they all went for over 7 rpo. A nightmare of a day for the Indian bowlers and they will like to forget this as quickly as possible.

Easily done! Australia made a mockery of this chase and have taken the lead in the series without sweating. The openers started, laid the platform and also ended the chase. Unbeaten centuries from David Warner and skipper Aaron Finch has destroyed, humiliated and annihilated the hosts. A day for the Australians to remember as they have broken a ton of records and handed Australia a thumping 10 wicket win!
