Team India was wholly thrashed by the Australians in the opening encounter losing by ten wickets.
Batting first, India could score only 255 runs against the lethal pace attack of Aussies. Shikhar Dhawan and Lokesh Rahul scored good knocks of 74 and 47 runs while the mighty duo of Rohit and Virat got out cheaply. Pant and Jadeja made some contributions in the lower middle order scoring 28 and 25, respectively. Mitch Starc took three wicket-haul while Cummins and Richardson struck twice for the team.
In the chase, Australian openers displayed utter dominance with Warner and Finch remaining unbeaten on 128* and 110* respectively to chase the target quickly in less than 38 overs. Indian pacers failed to trouble the batsmen and leaked easy runs for the Australians.
To keep the series alive, India will have to put their best effort tomorrow and bounce back comprehensively. At the same time, the Australians will want to continue the winning momentum ahead and put a similar show in the second ODI to seal the series victory against a strong Indian team at their backyard.
