  • That is it from this game. We expected a tough fight but it was another one-sided game of cricket in India but the twist in the tale was that it was the hosts who were decimated at their own backyard. Australia go 1-0 up in this small series with a dominant fashion. India will look to bounce back from this loss and will see this as one-off. We now move to Rajkot for the all important 2nd ODI. That game will be played on Friday, 17th January. The match will begin at 1330 local (0800 GMT). Join us for that one. Till then, cheers!
  • For his unbeaten knock of 128, David Warner has been adjudged the Man of the Match. Warner says that he has always had hunger and desire to score runs., Credits his fast bowlers and tells knocking India for 255 in their own backyard was incredible. Adds Finch started well and that allowed him to take his time. Says they just try to keep rotating the strike in the middle period and score odd boundaries. Tell they look to take the game deep and knew if they stuck in there till the end they could chase it with ease. Tells he enjoys fielding since childhood and used to get his clothes dirty which his mom did not like but he loves that aspect of the game. Ends by thanking the fans for coming.
  • Australian skipper, Aaron Finch says they fought back in the middle part with the ball and that played a huge role and he is proud of his bowlers. Finch says they can brush up in fielding but he is happy with the performance overall. On David Warner, Finch says that he has been unstoppable in this format. Tells that it is difficult to bowl to him once he is set in. Adds that it is always great to bat with him. On whether he expects India to bounce back, Finch says definitely as he knows they are a quality side.
  • Indian skipper Virat Kohli says that they were outplayed in all three departments. Adds that there was no intent in the middle overs with the bat and that the side was too respectful of the opposition bowlers. Further says that the Australians are a world class side and they capitalized on the openings that they got. On being asked about looking forward to the T20 format, Virat says International cricket is always priceless and game time matters and not a particular format. Adds that everyone has to step up and hopes that one of the youngsters in the middle order can play a blinder in the next two games. On being asked about his decision to come in at the number 4 position, Virat says that they have had that discussion many times in the past but they will be looking to try different things and not sticking to a single attempt. Adds that they were looking to experiment and they are allowed to do that and fail in that too once in a while. Ends by thanking the crowd and saying they were amazing.
  • Earlier in the day, the Australian bowlers set up the win for the tourists as they bowled out India for a paltry score of 255 on a batting pitch. No one apart from Dhawan and Rahul got going for India. The Australian bowlers were on top and the pace bowling trio of Starc, Cummins and Richardson grabbed 7 wickets amongst them with the former picking up 3 and the latter two sharing 4 wickets equally between themselves.
  • It was a day to forget for India. First with the bat and then with the ball. The bowlers had a sub-par total to defend but the way the Australian openers took the attack to them was something that we have not seen for a long, long time. 5 bowlers played the game and none of them had anything to smile about. Only the spinners went for less than 6 runs per over but that was because the Australian openers never had to go after them. Shami, Thakur and Bumrah they all went for over 7 rpo. A nightmare of a day for the Indian bowlers and they will like to forget this as quickly as possible.
  • Easily done! Australia made a mockery of this chase and have taken the lead in the series without sweating. The openers started, laid the platform and also ended the chase. Unbeaten centuries from David Warner and skipper Aaron Finch has destroyed, humiliated and annihilated the hosts. A day for the Australians to remember as they have broken a ton of records and handed Australia a thumping 10 wicket win!
  • Mohammed Shami is back on.
  • Ravindra Jadeja is back on. 6-0-29-0, his figures so far.

  • jasprit Bumrah is back on. 5-0-31-0 his figures so far.
  • Kuldeep is back!
  • Warner has been adjudged LBW and he has taken it upstairs straightaway. Was there some bat involved? The indication from Warner suggests that because if there isn't any then he is a candidate of plumb. Replay rolls in and it shows that the bat is indeed involved. The Australian march continues!
  • Shardul Thakur is back on! 3-0-32-0, his numbers today.
  • Ravindra Jadeja is back on. He has conceded 20 runs so far in his 3 overs.
  • Shami is back!
  • Stumping appeal! Again Finch is the man in question. The Indians don't look too excited and the replays show why as Finch is comfortably in.
  • Review time! Finch is the man in question. Rahul was against taking the review but Jadeja wanted it and Kohli has sided with his bowler. Replays roll in and show that there is an inside edge. Finch survives!
  • Jadeja is back.
  • DRINKS! Australia are cruising at the moment and India cannot find a way to take wickets with both Warner and Finch going strong. Their opening stand is unbeaten at 115 runs and if this goes on for any longer, India will then be completely out of this game. If the hosts need to stand any chance of a comeback, they will need wickets in a heap.
  • Jasprit Bumrah is back on!
  • Ravindra Jadeja is on now.
  • Powerplay 2 time! Now maximum of 4 fielders can be placed outside the 30-yard circle till the 40th over. Spin to begin the second phase of the game. Kuldeep Yadav to have a go and Kohli needs him to break this partnership.

  • Shardul Thakur is introduced into the attack.
  • Jasprit Bumrah to bowl from the other end with the second new ball.

Mohammed Shami to start the proceedings with the new ball for India. Warner to face the first ball. Alos, KL Rahul is donning the gloves and Pandey is on the field for Pant.

A tough chance this for Labuschagne and he does really well to get his hand to the ball. It is full around the pads, Dhawan whips it uppishly wide of mid-wicket. Labuschagne there dives to his left and gets his hands to it but he fails to grasp it in. The ball goes through him and races away to the fence. This looks like a boxing match between Dhawan and Starc.
  • 7.3: M Starc to S Dhawan, FOUR! This will give Dhawan some confidence. Full on middle and leg, Dhawan plays the toughest shot in cricket, the on drive to perfection and he hits it cleanly. The ball races away to the fence and it races away to the long on fence.

Cummins turns and appeals but the umpire shakes his head. The Australian players gather and mull over a review and eventually go for it. Replays roll in and Ultra Edge shows no bat involved. Ball Tracker comes into play and shows that the ball is pitching outside leg. A waste of a review against such a strong Indian batting line-up early on in the innings.

Rohit looks to drive it away from the body but he does so uppishly as the ball holds onto the pitch and he hits it from the lower half of his bat. The ball falls on its way to mid off. Warner there comes forward and takes a very good catch inches above the ground. Rohit cannot believe it. But he will have to walk back. Only the Aussie voices can be heard. Maybe the maiden over before this one built the pressure. Big and early wicket for the visitors.

  • 4.1: M Starc to R Sharma, Lucky to escape that. It is full down the leg side, closer to the pads. Rohit looks to flick but misses. The ball kisses his pad and goes to the left of Carey who does well to stop that.

The idea from Starc is right as he is trying to swing it back in from there but the margin of error is just too small.
  • Can India roar back in the second half with the likes of Bumrah, Shami and Kuldeep to bowl. Or will Australia take the lead in this 3-match ODI series with Warner, Smith and Labuschagne firing? Join us after the break to find out!
  • So in a pitch where 300-plus scores are chased regularly, India have a below-par total of 256 to defend. Australia will be the happier side heading into the break and should chase this down with dew also set to play a a part.
  • Starc starts by saying that it is a good effort by all the bowlers. Adds that it is a good moment for him as he is playing just his 2nd ODI in India. On the key to bowling well on this track, Starc says that the Australian bowlers for the most part bowled good lines and lengths and varied their pace at the right time. Mentions that India have some quality spinners and quality quicks as well so they have to be on their toes. Ends by saying they have to bat well to win this match.
  • What a resounding bowling performance from the Australians. Finch won the toss and opted to bowl and his bowlers backed their captain. All 5 bowlers were exceptional and had at least one wicket to heir name. The pacers had 7 wickets amongst themselves. Mitchell Starc was the star of the show with 3 wickets. Richardson and Cummins had two wickets each. The spinners were not just economical but also got very crucial wickets. The leg spin of Zampa got rid of Kohli while Agar got rid of Rahul. None of the bowlers went for more than 6 runs in an over on a pitch where bowlers have feared to bowl. Before we head into the break, the star of the show Mitchell Starc is caught down for a quick chat with Michael Slater.
  • After being put into bat, India got off to a horror start losing Rohit Sharma early. Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul then steadied the ship with a 121-run stand. The former started off slowly but grew into his stride. Rahul though lacked aggression but once he departed the procession started. From 134/1 the hosts found themselves wanting at 164/5. The big finish they were laying the foundation for never came. Pant and Jadeja then tried to give them that blockbuster finish and added a 49-run stand but the pair departed in quick succession. 250 looked difficult but fight from Shami and Kuldeep saw the scoreboard have some respectability and has taken the hosts to 255.
  • Superb bowling performance from the visitors. On a wicket which has historically been a bowler's nightmare, the Australian bowlers have come and given a masterclass at Wankhede. High-fives all around amongst the Aussies as they know they have won the first half of this game.
  • Jasprit Bumrah is the last man in. But before he starts there is a slight delay as we have a kite which is causing the delay.
  • Kuldeep Yadav walks in at number 10.
  • This time India have taken the review. Mohammed Shami is the man in question. Looks to be going down leg to the naked eye and yes, the replays confirm it.
  • Mitchell Starc comes back into the attack. 8-0-34-2, his figures so far.
  • Mohammed Shami comes in to bat now. The tail of India will have to bat well here to cross even the 250-run mark.

  • Shardul Thakur is the new man in. Can he provide the flourish that the Indian innings needs along with Rishabh Pant?

  • Powerplay 3 is underway now! Upto 5 fielders are now allowed outside the 30-yard circle till the end of the innings.

  • Ravindra Jadeja walks out now. Can he pull India out of this perilous situation?

  • Adam Zampa is back.
  • Another local boy, Shreyas Iyer walks out to bat.
  • Pat Cummins is back into the attack.
  • Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, walks out to bat now. It will be interesting to see how he will adjust to this role after a long time batting at no. 3 in ODI's.
  • Change of ends for Ashton Agar.
  • Bowling change! Pace back on in the form of Kane Richardson. 5-0-27-0, his figures so far. Can he add one to his wicket column?
  • Bump ball review taken upstairs. The soft signal is Not Out. The Australian players do not look confident and the reason is here. It is clearly a bump ball.
  • Zampa coming from the other end. 2-0-10-0, his numbers.
  • Ashton Agar is into the attack now. Can the left-arm spinner break this stand?
  • Drinks Break! India after losing Rohit Sharma early have done really well. Dhawan has found his strides and Rahul too is slowly getting there. The pair have added 59 runs and have laid the platform for a big stand. Australia have been good but they need to find a way to end this stand.
  • Kane Richardson is back! 3-0-12-0, his numbers so far.
  • Spin time now as Adam Zampa is introduced into the attack.
  • Powerplay 2 is underway now. Maximum of 4 fielders will be allowed outside the circle until the 40th over.
  • Last over of Powerplay 1 and it will be Cummins who will finish it off.
  • Change of ends for Starc. Cummins was getting some movement from this end and maybe that is why Starc has had a change of ends.
  • First bowling change of the game. Kane Richardson replaces Mitchell Starc, who got a wicket in his last over of his first spell.
  • Review time as the Aussies have gone upstairs for an LBW appeal. Shikhar Dhawan is the man in question. The replays roll in and shows that the ball is pitching outside leg. Australia lose their sole review here and we are just into the 6th over. Paine or Finch, Australia seem to struggle in getting the reviews right.
  • KL Rahul replaces Rohit Sharma out in the middle.
  • Pat Cummins to partner Mitchell Starc from the other end.
  • Done and dusted with the national anthems. The Australian players are walking out on the field and are taking their respective positions. To a huge reception from the home crowd, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma stride out to open the innings for India. The latter will take the strike. Mitchell Starc to start the proceedings for the tourists with the first new ball. Two slips in place for Starc to begin with.
  • Both sets of players walk out to the middle for their respective national anthems. Fasten your seat belts as we are just moments away from the action to begin!
  • Pat Cummins is down for an interview. Says that the T20 World Cup will be a big challenge for him. Adds that he got a bit lucky in the Indian T20 League auction and that is another challenge for him. Further adds that his job as vice-captain is very easy with Aaron Finch as the skipper. Says that they are not too happy with their run in the ICC ODI World Cup in 2019, but is very happy with how things are right now. Mentions that having a clear game plan and disciplined bowling along with spin in the middle overs will be the key if they want to win against India.
  • INDIA Playing XI - Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah.
  • AUSTRALIA Playing XI - David Warner, Aaron Finch (C), Marnus Labuschagne (ODI DEBUT), Steven Smith, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (WK), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa.
  • Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, says they wanted to bowl first as well because of the dew factor that comes into play in Mumbai. Adds that however they are up for the challenge to bat first as well and put runs on the board. Further says that he is pretty happy batting first as it is a challenge for them and they will try to step up. Talking about the Australian team, Virat says that they are one of the best opponents that have come here and posed a great challenge against them. Recollects the last time when the Australians came from 2-0 down to win the series 3-2 in India. Informs that Shivam Dube, Manish Pandey, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kedar Jadhav miss out on the playing XI.
  • Australian captain Aaron Finch, says that it is a good wicket and hopes the dew to come in and hence the decision. Tells they are feeling good and says the guys are very confident as they have played either Test or Big Bash. Finch says he is excited as he has all the pacers available. On his team, Finch informs that they are playing with two spinners. Adds D'Arcy Short, Handscomb and Hazlewood are the ones missing out.
  • TOSS - We are all in readiness for the flip of the coin. Indian skipper, Virat Kohli has the coin in hand. Up it goes, Australian skipper, Aaron Finch calls Tails and the coin comes down in the favour of the Aussies. AUSTRALIA OPT TO BOWL!
  • The Sri Lanka series is done and India now have a tougher assignment at home. Their first challenging series of 2020 sees them welcome 3-time World champions, Australia. The last time the tourists visited, they came here down and out but went back looking like their former self. Aaron Finch and co. will be looking to repeat the same and prove the world that they are the real deal. Virat Kohli, on the other hand, will be desperate to give it back to the Aussies and avenge for that series loss. A cracker of a contest awaits us in Mumbai. Who will take the lead in this small but dynamite of a series?
