Australia piles up 334 for 5 against India in 4th one day match

Australia piles up 334 for 5 against India in 4th one day match

Bengaluru, Sep 28 (UNI) Resurgent Australians made a challenging 334 for 5 against India after a record 231 runs opening partnership between David Warner (124) and Aaron Finch (94) in the fourth one day match played at M Chinnaswamy stadium here today. The duo obliterated a 31 year old record scoring 231 for the opening wicket beating the old record of 212 made by David Boon and G Marsh made at Rajkot way back in 1986. Many aspects and calculations that went into the dead rubber after India were leading 3-0 in the five match series went wrong, at least for the Indian team and its management. It seemed that the changes made in the side bringing three changes had misfired for Virat Kohli. Opting to bat after winning the toss, the Australian captain Steve Smith said he was confident of bring a turnaround for the team, which was 0-3 down, while Indian captain Virat Kohli said the pitch could be on the slower side. But the steadfast David Warner and Aaron Finch made the difference between the two sides by a methodical assault of the Indian attack. Scoring at a faster pace from the start maintaining a six plus-run scoring rate off the Indian pacers Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav, the openers then handled the Indian spinners intelligently. Warner who hit 12 fours and four sixes in his 119 ball innings dominated the opening partnership with Finch bidding his time. But Finch who hit 10 fours and four sixes in his 96 ball stint opened up late. Their cautious but methodical assault put the Indian bowlers on the defensive, leaving Indian captain Virat Kohli searching for ideas. But Warner, took the mantle to score a memorable century on his 100 ODI outing and jumped in joy after completing it in the 31 over bowled by part time off spinner Kedar Jadhav. The left handed opener departed first holing out to Axar Patel in the deep, in the deep off Umesh and Finch departed at the same sore of 231 for 2 to be caught by Hardik Pandya, who had a dissapointing bowling stint as a bowler. Advent of Australian skipper Smith did not make much change as he was out for 5 caught by Kohli to give Umesh Yadav his third wicket as Australia lost three wickets in a space of seven balls. But Peter Handscomb made the last assault scoring 43 off 30 balls before being bowled by Umesh who took four wickets. UNI RS MSP 1751
