India vs Australia Live Scorecard 1st ODI - IND vs AUS 2013
50 overs Australia 304 for 8 (Bailey 85, Finch 72) v India
Australia captain George Bailey built on a century opening stand even as wickets fell around him, and his lower order finished strongly to set India a target of 305. Given the slow and slightly uneven pitch, it appears to be a difficult chase, unless the ball comes on much better in the evening.
The visitors had an excellent start in the T20 as well, but lost too many wickets and failed to take advantage at the death. They seemed to follow the same pattern today, threatening to waste a 110-run first-wicket partnership between Aaron Finch and Phillip Hughes by losing regular wickets. Bailey, however, held the innings together with a smart, busy knock, but became the seventh man to fall with the score on 264 in the 47th over. Just when it seemed Australia had lost all their steam, the lower order looted 39 off India's seamers in the last three overs to push their side over the 300-mark. Ishant Sharma suffered the most, going for 56 in seven overs, while Vinay Kumar went for 68 in nine.
