commentary

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 in their own backyard. Australia go 1-0 up in this small series with a dominant display. India will look to bounce back from this loss and will see this as a 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. 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!

R Jadeja to D Warner, NOT OUT! Warner almost immediately took the review and again he has been saved by the inside edge. Floated ball on middle and leg, Warner looks to paddle it towards fine leg but fails to do so. The ball hits the pads and the Indian players appeal and this time the finger goes up. Warner goes for the review and looked very confident. Replays rolled in and showed why as there is a clear spike on the Ultra Edge. Warner stays on the crease and will be eyeing his ton.

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!

K Yadav to A Finch, No reviews left and Finch again survives. Floated delivery on middle, Finch looks to defend but the ball turns in and beats his inside edge. Yadav and his teammates put in a loud appeal but the umpire thinks it has hit the gloves. Kohli is baffled by that call but does not have a review to challenge that decision. The replays later roll in and show that even if it would have been reviewed, Finch would have been saved as the ball clipped the top of leg pole and it would have been umpire's call.

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.

R Jadeja to A Finch, NOT OUT! Fat as panda inside edge there and to make matters worse India lose their review as well. Quicker one on middle and leg, Finch looks to defend but gets hit on the pads. Jadeja goes up in appeal but the umpire says no. Jadeja feels he has his man, Kohli also wants to review this but Rahul is not too keen. Kohli this time goes with his bowler and reviews it. Replay rolls in and it shows that there is a fat inside edge before it hit the pads. Ultra Edge confirms that and the one positive thing that India had was they had a review now they do not have that either.

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!

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.

K Yadav to A Finch, Almost! Finch could have easily been a goner. Floated delivery on middle and leg, Finch looks to work this one towards the leg side but the ball goes off the leading edge towards mid off. Iyer at mid off runs to his right and across but the ball falls just short. An opening off the first ball by Kuldeep.

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.

S Thakur to D Warner, NOT OUT! Very good review from Warner. The question is why did he wait for so long before going for the review? Good length delivery pitching on leg and going away. Warner looks to pull and the ball goes to the keeper. The Indian players are up in celebration and the umpire raises his finger. Warner has a word with Finch and with just 1 second remaining he signals the 'T'. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge shows no spike as the ball goes past the glove. Very good review from Warner. This will also be a wide.

S Thakur to D Warner, Howzaattt? The umpire says not good enough to raise his finger. Shardul starts with an inswinging delivery on off, Warner looks to defend but misses. It hits him on the back pad and there is a huge appeal but the umpire turns it down. Rahul thinks it is too high and also going away. Kohli thinks of the review but then goes with his keeper. Replay later on shows that the ball would have clipped the top of middle. The decision would have stayed with the on-field umpire's call.

Shardul Thakur is introduced into the attack.
