India look to pile on Australia's misery

Kapil Dev says Hardik Pandya is better than him

Australia made 334 for five and in response, India fell short with 313 for eight in 50 overs. Kedar walked in after his captain had dragged a Coulter-Nile delivery onto the stumps and almost replicated it first ball, but managed to just hit into his on boot. Dhoni miscued a couple of shots before falling to an inside edge. And, every one of the new bowlers literally gave away six runs more than what they should have done, left Australians at staggering 334 total in 50 overs.

India's chase started strongly, Anjinkya Rahane (53) and Rohit Sharma (65) producing a 106-run opening partnership before Kane Richardson removed Rahane in the 19th over.

In the interim, Warner reached his hundred off 103 balls.

With the series already won, India chose to rest Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav as they were replaced by Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav and Axar Patel respectively.

Erdogan said that the two sides had reaffirmed their determination to work closely and show a "joint will" to end the Syria conflict.

Bowling: Shami 10-1-62-0 (1w), Yadav 10-0-71-4 (4w), Patel 10-0-66-0 (1w), Pandya 5-0-32-0 (2w), Chahal 8-0-54-0 (2w), Jadhav 7-1-38-1 (2w). It's times like these that India have turned to a part-timer. In the post-match presentation, he felt that the Australians played better than the hosts and the Indian bowlers did well to pull back things in the death overs and restrict Australia to under 350. Peter Handscomb (43) and Travis Head (29) slogged to a 63-run stand during the lull. "Umesh even picked up four wickets and it would have been a bit more than what he would have expected himself". So it was a question of taking the pace off the ball and trying to put the onus on the batsmen to force the issue, which Yadav did later to pick up four wickets. As Kohli stood admiring, Sharma landed up at his end.

Both are very good runners individually between the wickets but when it comes to understanding between these two, it looks like it is the most important factor certainly doesn't exist between the two. We got a pretty good opening partnership. He got an inside edge off Coulter-Nile, the shot that got him dismissed in the Kolkata ODI.

Virat Kohli came in and looked in good touch. They tore apart Adam Zampa with Pandya placing two consecutive sixes over midwicket.
