In an incredible performance, the Australian ODI side has started the 3-game series in India with a dominant performance.
With the ball, the bowlers did their jobs impressively, restricting the strong Indian batting lineup to just 255 when it looked like they were heading for much more. India looked to be cruising at 1-134 in the 28th over when Agar took the wicket of Rahul. It sparked a run of 4-30, including the big wicket of Kohli by Zampa, which really ripped the heart out of the Indians chance of a big score.
For the bowlers, the wickets were largely shared with Starc with 3, Cummins and Richardson 2 apiece, and the spinners Agar and Zampa taking one each.
From there on, it was the Warner (128 off 112) and Finch (110 off 114) show as they produced an absolute masterclass to win the game inside 38 overs, producing the highest partnership ever against India, handing out one of India’s biggest thrashings in the process.
In completing his hundred, he became the fastest Australian player to 5000 ODI runs to cap off an incredible match.
