India vs Australia 1st ODI Live - IND vs AUS 2013 1st ODI Match
India vs Australia Live Streaming, 1st ODI of Australia tour of India 2013 at Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, Pune played on October 13, 2013.
Australian captain George Baileywon the toss and decided to bat against India in the first one-day international at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Sunday.
India have enjoyed exceptional results in one-day format this year. Except losing a three-match series to Pakistan at the start of 2013, the world champion side has had tremendoussuccess, winning series after series.
The hosts had whitewashed Australia 4-0 in the February-March Test series and avenging that loss would be a Herculean task for the visitors, who have come withoutinspiring skipper Michael Clarke even as their batsmen gave a good account of themselves in the one-off Twenty20 in Rajkot.
Australia did beat England in ODIs post their Ashes debacle but India are a tough nut to crack in home conditions. And the visitors have got a fair idea about the task ahead after failing to defend a 200-plus total in Rajkot.
The Australian attack was subdued by the Indian batsmen, specially the comeback-man Yuvraj Singh, who took the game away from them with his blitzy 35-ball 77.
Even though the matches commence one hour earlier than is the custom in India, the team bowling second would obviously have to factor in the dew fall which makes the ball skid off the track and trouble the spinners from having a firmer grip.
India: MS Dhoni (w/c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Vinay Kumar, Ishant Sharma.
Australia: Aaron Finch, Phillip Hughes, Shane Watson, George Bailey(c), Adam Voges, Glenn Maxwell, Brad Haddin(w), James Faulkner, Mitchell Johnson, Xavier Doherty, Clint McKay.
