India vs Australia, Highlights, 1st ODI in Mumbai, Full Cricket Score: Warner, Finch slam tons as Aussies go 1-0 up with 10-wicket win


20:49 (IST)

We are just glad the day is over for the Indian team. The start to the much-anticipated India-Australia series has been completely unexpected. India have been humbled in their own backyard as Australia take a 1-0 lead in the ODI series with a thumping 10-wicket. With the other two matches coming thick and fast, India have very little time to recover and mount a comeback. But a team like India is never going to give it up easily. Which means we have two exciting games coming up. Hope you enjoyed our coverage today. We will see you for the second ODI on 17 January. Till then, good bye! 

20:47 (IST)

David Warner is the Man of the Match!

Warner: I've always had the hunger and desire to put my best foot forward for the team. We got off to a flier with Finchy and myself, and (we had to) just hang in there. For us in the middle period it's about rotating the strike, try and hit a boundary and exerting some pressure. It's about hanging in there. For me it's about putting in a hundred percent effort all the time. I really do everything at a hundred percent.

20:46 (IST)

Aaron Finch, winning captain: Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul were batting very well, we thought they will go onto score big as they usually do. So, I am proud of the way the boys fought back. We could still brush up in the field a bit but that happens sometimes when the outfield is slightly damp. Overall, a good performance. Always tough to beat India in India.

20:43 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: Totally outplayed in all three departments. It's a very strong Australian team and they'll hurt you if you're not upto the mark. We were too respectful to the bowlers in certain phases. It's another challenge for us to bounce back from here, but today, total credit has to go to them. The more game time these guys get, whether T20 cricket or ODI cricket... it's an opportunity for the youngsters to step up against the top sides in the world. (On Kohli at 4) We've had this discussion many times in the past as well. The way KL's batting, we've tried to include him in the batting line up. We'll probably have to think about that now. It's about wanting to test guys and put them in there, and people need not panic after one game.

20:38 (IST)

Will have to wait a little longer to watch Labuschagne bat in the yellow jersey

After 36 overs,Australia 244/0 ( David Warner 116 , Aaron Finch (C) 109)

Shami back into attack. It has been a batting exhibition today by the Aussie openers. It's a good pitch to bat and they have made most of it with beautiful shots. Eight off this over with a boundary for Finch who showed some great deft touch to guide the wide of off delivery to third man fence. We are nearing the end now. 

20:19 (IST)

This has been an embarrassing performance by India. They have looked lacklustere and been outplayed. Finch and Warner just keep stamping their authority as one of the finest opening partnerships. Lots of thinking to do for the Men in Blue. Australian bowling has set this up this victory.

After 34 overs,Australia 229/0 ( David Warner 114 , Aaron Finch (C) 96)

20:09 (IST)

After 33 overs,Australia 226/0 ( David Warner 113 , Aaron Finch (C) 94)

Every Indian bowler has been taken to the cleaners today. Even Bumrah has not be spared. 11 off the over with Warner slamming two boundaries on the last two deliveries. He moved back a bit to crash the short ball past cover fielders for the first boundary before driving the slower ball away from mid off fielder for the same result. 

20:08 (IST)

Did you know?

This is now the highest stand against India in India in ODIs while chasing, going past 218 runs stand between Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer (at Chennai in 2019 for the second wicket).

FOUR! Bumrah having a bad day in the office and Warner is taking advantage of it. This was slower delivery which Warner thrashed to the fence with a check-bat drive

After 32 overs,Australia 215/0 ( David Warner 104 , Aaron Finch (C) 92)

Kuldeep continues. Massive six in the over for Finch as he gets closer to his ton. He picked the googly this time and dispatched it over long on boundary for a biggie. 10 off the over as Australia race towards the target. 

20:02 (IST)

A one-sided start so far to a highly-anticipated battle of the top dogs

20:01 (IST)

SIX! Fantastic shot from Finch. This time he read the googly from Kuldeep perfectly. Took a stride forward and went with the shot, launching the ball over long on

HUNDRED! Warner gets to his ton with a boundary through third man area and brings out his typical celebration. Jumps in the air and throws up the fist in the air to celebrate. Well played, Warner. 

19:55 (IST)

After 30 overs,Australia 197/0 ( David Warner 96 , Aaron Finch (C) 83)

FOUR! Kuldeep pitches is short and wide, giving Warner the invitation to get onto back foot as he smashes this on the offside

19:51 (IST)

After 29 overs,Australia 189/0 ( David Warner 90 , Aaron Finch (C) 81)

Just two runs from Jadeja's over which also had him partly dismissing Warner. The opener was given out lbw but he immediately reviewed it and got the decision overturned as there was an inside edge. India's happiness was cut short within seconds.

19:50 (IST)


Jadeja and co are celebrating after dismissing Warner. But the opener quickly reviews the lbw decision and UltraEdge shows he had inside-edged it. 

19:48 (IST)

After 28 overs,Australia 187/0 ( David Warner 89 , Aaron Finch (C) 81)

So the boundary delivery arrived in this over. After taking few singles and a leg bye, Warner was presented with a misdirected bouncer from Shardul which the opener swiftly tucked away to the fine leg fence, Eight off the over. Aussies need just 69 more from remaining 22 overs. 

19:46 (IST)

19:44 (IST)

After 27 overs,Australia 179/0 ( David Warner 83 , Aaron Finch (C) 80)

Jadeja continues. There's no pressure on the Aussie batsmen here and there's no need for them to take any risk. They are waiting for the bad deliveries and till the time it arrives, they are happy to deal in singles as they did in the over. Four off the over.

19:40 (IST)

After 26 overs,Australia 176/0 ( David Warner 82 , Aaron Finch (C) 79)

Another bowling change. Shardul replaces Shami. Starts off with a wide but finishes on a decent note as Aussie batsman rotate the strike to keep things moving. Four off the over. 

19:38 (IST)

After 25 overs,Australia 173/0 ( David Warner 81 , Aaron Finch (C) 77)

19:36 (IST)

FOUR! Warner went for a drive on a ball from Jadeja that pitched on middle and spun back in, took the inside edge and escaped the keeper to get to the fence

19:34 (IST)

After 24 overs,Australia 166/0 ( David Warner 76 , Aaron Finch (C) 76)

Shami continues. Expensive over this from the pacer with Finch and Warner ruling the roost. The short delivery on off was cut towards square for a boundary by Finch while a similar delivery was smartly played to third man fence for second boundary. 10 off the over.

19:32 (IST)

FOUR! Well played, Finch! Short and wide delivery from Shami but Finch smartly opened the face of the bat late to guide it to third man fence

After 23 overs,Australia 156/0 ( David Warner 76 , Aaron Finch (C) 66)

Kuldeep continues. 10 off the over including a massive six for Warner over long on. Australia have now crossed the 150-run mark. The opening partnership is now also past 150 while India continue search for a wicket.

19:28 (IST)

India really looking clueless. Warner has been sublime against the spinner, he has watched the ball like a hawk and used his feet so well. Fielders have been pushed back allowing them to just pick up easy singles. This is a absolute carnage.

SIX! Tossed up delivery from Kuldeep and Warner read it perfectly to shimmie down and slams it over long on fence

19:25 (IST)

After 22 overs,Australia 146/0 ( David Warner 69 , Aaron Finch (C) 63)

Shami brought back into attack. Good over from the pacer. Just three runs off it. The run flow has slowed down a bit but you can understand it. The field is spread and the asking rate is below 4. 

19:22 (IST)

After 21 overs,Australia 143/0 ( David Warner 67 , Aaron Finch (C) 62)

Kuldeep continues. Stumping appeal on the first ball as Finch is drawn out with the ball beating him but he was safe. LBW appeal against Finch on last ball but umpire was not interested and it was going over the stumps. Three off the over. 

19:17 (IST)

After 20 overs,Australia 140/0 ( David Warner 66 , Aaron Finch (C) 61)

Huge appeal for lbw against Finch off Jadeja as he got beaten trying to play for a spin. Umpire was not interested and India took a review but an inside edge saved the opener. India lose the review. Seven off the over including a boundary for Warner. 

India vs Australia 1st ODI Live Updates: It's over! Warner hits a boundary to take his team to the victory line. A 258-run opening partnership between Finch and Warner takes Australia to a comprehensive 10-wicket win in the first ODI. They take a 1-0 lead in the series. India have been completely decimated today. One of the worst losses ever.

Preview: After back-to-back T20I series, the attention shifts to the 50-over format as the ODI series between India and Australia kicks off in Mumbai on Tuesday (14 January). The series will mark the return of regular vice-captain Rohit Sharma who was rested for the T20I series against Sri Lanka.

This is a very strong Australian ODI outfit visiting India, led by Aaron Finch, who has shaped into an able leader since taking the reins from then banned Steve Smith. One can say that most of the Australian players feel at home in India and conditions and pitch would not really bother them. Courtesy the Indian Premier League (IPL), they spend at least a month playing in the league across the country in different stadiums.

Finch, David Warner, Steve Smith, Ashton Turner and Pat Cummins are some of the IPL regulars and their experience of playing in Indian conditions will be very handy for the visitors. Despite such a star-studded squad, most focus will be on Marnus Labuschagne, who has been a phenomenon in Tests since coming in as concussion substitute for Steve Smith during the Ashes. He is expected to feature in the playing XI in Mumbai in the first ODI.

India will be bolstered by the comeback of Jasprit Bumrah to the ODI setup as well. After almost a four-month layoff due to back injury, Bumrah made his comeback in the T20I series where he did well. Bowling 10-over spell will test his fitness further and get him into ODI groove as well.

India have a pretty strong squad in place. But they do have a sweet headache to take care of. And that is KL Rahul. Given the form that he is in, it is going to be very difficult to ask him to warm the bench but that will mean resting Shikhar Dhawan who has not so bad to get dropped. Also, dropping Dhawan means team management plays unnecessarily with well-settled opening combination.

So does Rahul play at No. 4? If that happens, would he be as successful? Is it justice for Shreyas Iyer who has been so good at No. 4 recently? Does Kohli go back at No. 4? There are many questions that the Indian team management will have to answer on 14 January. Nevertheless, it is a great headache to have for any team.
