Australia Beat India To Signal World Cup Ambitions - Yahoo News

India's world record holder Rohit Sharma (138) smashed his sixth ODI International century to contribute more than half of his team's total but Mitchell Starc's career-best 6-43 restricted the visitors to 267-8. When the hosts replied, swashbuckling opener Aaron Finch proved he is not just a reckless slogger, compiling a composed 96 as Australia overwhelmed the target with one over to spare. Finch hit five fours and two sixes in his 127-ball knock but missed out on his seventh ODI century as Australia chalked up their second visite site win in the tri-series, which also involves England. Australia's chase got off to a strong start with the openers putting on 51 runs before the dangerous David Warner (24) spooned a simple catch to Suresh Raina at extra cover. Shane Watson (41) also began aggressively but looked desperate when boundaries stopped read more flowing and lost his more... off-stump to left-arm spinner Akshar Patel going for a slog-sweep. Steve Smith (47), who punished India in the preceding four-test series, continued to trouble them, once again exposing the visitors' bowling limitations with his century stand with Finch. From 216-2, Australia lost four quick wickets to inject fresh excitement in the contest but eventually prevailed when James Faulkner hit the winning boundary off Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
