India vs Australia 2020 Highlights, 1st ODI Match at Sydney, Full Cricket Score: Aussies grab series lead with 66-run win

18:01 (IST)

That's all from us now. Australia's batting proved to be the difference today. Superb centuries from Aaron Finch and Steve Smith as well as good support acts from Glenn Maxwell and David Warner. Poor effort from India. Fielding was also not up to the mark. Virat Kohli will hope his team will come back stronger on Sunday. 

See you soon guys, have a good one. 

17:58 (IST)

Aaron Finch, Australia skipper: I found it reasonably hard to get my timing. I took a couple of chances every now and then and got lucky. We’ve barely been together as a team. There hasn’t been a conscious effort to play a certain way. You make sure you’re playing to your strengths. Smudge was a different class altogether. Maxwell’s got the ability to just click his fingers and put pressure back on the opposition.

17:55 (IST)

Virat Kohli: "We got enough time to prepare, I don't think there's any excuses on the field when you don't pull up as a side. Probably the first long game we've played in a while. I think body language on the field after 25-26 overs was disappointing. We have to find ways to get few overs from our part-timers. We wanted to play positive cricket. We just needed to have a big innings from the top three, 130 or 140, which didn't happen unfortunately." 

17:49 (IST)

Steve Smith: "Been searching for something for couple of months now. Just three days ago something clicked, and my rhythm came back. I thought Davey and Finchy played exceptionally well up top. I was sort of just seeing the ball and hitting it, and not really thinking much. It was a good surface. Fortunately came off today. Nice to contribute to a win."

17:48 (IST)

Steve Smith is the Player of the Match for his blazing 105 off 66 balls!

After 50 overs,India 308/8 ( Navdeep Saini 29 , Jasprit Bumrah 0)

It's over. Chasing 375 always going to be tough for the visitors. India crossed the 300-run mark but Australia won the match by 66 runs. Finch and Smith scored centuries, Zampa picked four wickets while Hazlewood took three in his 10 overs. A day to forget for Virat Kohli and Co.

After 49 overs,India 305/7 ( Navdeep Saini 27 , Mohammed Shami 13)

Hazlewood bowls the penultimate over. 2,0,2,0,2,0nb, 1. Last over coming up. 

17:32 (IST)

After 48 overs,India 299/7 ( Navdeep Saini 21 , Mohammed Shami 13)

Starc bowls the over, there's an appeal for caught behind. Down leg and Australia take the review as they think Shami has nicked it. Nothing on Hot Spot and UltraEdge so the onfield call of not out stays. Two runs from the over.

India vs Australia 2020, Live Cricket Score of 1st ODI Match: It's over. Chasing 375 always going to be tough for the visitors. India crossed the 300-run mark but Australia won the match by 66 runs. Finch and Smith scored centuries, Zampa picked four wickets while Hazlewood took three in his 10 overs. A day to forget for Virat Kohli and Co.

Preview: A new world and a different shade of retro blue awaits a circumspect Indian cricket team which re-enters the international arena without a white-ball colossus in Rohit Sharma, facing the might of a menacing Australia in the first ODI in Sydney on Friday.

The absence of an injured Rohit Sharma will certainly leave a gaping hole at the top of the order, something that skipper Virat Kohli wouldn't have fancied at the onset of a gruelling two-month tour.

Kohli's men, who had been on a COVID-enforced international break since the disastrous away series against New Zealand that ended early March, now kick-start their international calendar in a series where a lot of probing questions are expected to be asked.

For those who believe in superstition, the return of the 1992 World Cup's navy blue jersey isn't a good omen as one of India's worst performances (7th in 9 teams) happened in that particular edition.

For the more pragmatic, it will be more about how Kohli's men get their combination right in the absence of Rohit, whose injury has been a topic of national debate.

Whether it's the young Shubman Gill or the slightly more experienced Mayank Agarwal, whoever partners an in-form Shikhar Dhawan, the challenge of facing a Mitchell Starc or a Pat Cummins first up will still be an onerous one.

So 'King Kohli' again has his task cut out as he gears up to combat a high quality pace attack, which is likely to be complemented by the wrist spin of Adam Zampa, who has at times been the Indian captain's nemesis.

Facing an Australia team in their own backyard with a Steve Smith, who is getting back his rhythm, an eternally hungry David Warner and a future great in Marnus Labuschagne isn't the best of propositions and thus some priorities will be tested.
