20:26 (IST)

Australia Win! The next one is pitched up by Shami and sent back down the ground for four runs to complete a convincing win. Australia win by 10 wickets and more than 12 overs still to play. India and Kohli need to look for answers and quickly. 

20:23 (IST)

Four! Short into Warner's hips and he has turned it away for an easy boundary! 2 more needed

20:20 (IST)

Five from Jadeja's next over in the form of three singles and a two. One wonders what could have been if Australia batted first given the way these two are going. Australia seven away from the win.

20:18 (IST)

Shami from the other end to Finch but he picks up a delicate boundary at fine leg before handing Warner takes over. No more damage other than singles takes Australia to 244/0. 

20:14 (IST)

Seven runs of that from Jadeja and importantly Finch brings up his hundred too. Paddle sweeps it away to fine leg for a boundary to complete the century. 

20:11 (IST)

A rather quiet over off Kuldeep Yadav as he keeps both the rampaging openers to only three singles. Australia need 27 and Finch needs 4 to complete a century. 

20:07 (IST)

David Warner is on fire and making Jasprit Bumrah look rather average here in Mumbai. He's lashed on to a length ball and then one which was pitched up and played them through the covers with some immaculate placement to find the fence another couple of times. 11 of Bumrah's over who can just and watch. Australia are 226/0. 

20:02 (IST)

10 runs of Kuldeep's over and 9 to Aaron Finch. Started it off with a six before knocking it around easily. Australia are looking to finish this off quickly and India's bowlers would not mind this day coming to an end soon. They've been off radar today. Australia are 215/0.   

20:00 (IST)

SIX! Aaron Finch has picked Kuldeep's googly and he's lifted it over long off for a huge one. Making it look easy! 

19:58 (IST)

Warner completes the 31st over in some style - classy straight  drive back past the gap between bowler and mid off gives him and Australia four more. They are just 51 runs away from a convincing win. 

19:56 (IST)

Four and 100! Warner uses the pace of Bumrah and directs it away through backward point for a boundary to bring up his 18th ton! He's been in scintillating form here. 

19:53 (IST)

Warner and Finch knock Kuldeep around for four singles apart from cracking boundary that Warner hit. Eight runs of the over as Australia are 197/0 after 30 overs. 

19:52 (IST)

Four! David Warner absolutely crunches Kuldeep Yadav through the covers as he pitches it short. Warner at his best! 

19:51 (IST)

Two singles only off Jadeja's next over, but a small scare of sorts for Warner as India appealed for LBW. But turns out he edged it onto his pad and immediately reviewed the decision successfully after the on-field umpire initially ruled him out. Australia are 189/0. 

19:47 (IST)

After a small break, Australia are back to finding the boundaries with ease. David Warner guides a short one from Thakur to fine leg for a boundary in an over where he and Finch also picked up four runs through singles. Australia march on and are 187/0. 

19:42 (IST)

Jadeja at the other end hustles through an over and Australia are able to knock him around for three singles. Both Warner and Finch are in total control here. Australia need 77 runs to win. 

19:39 (IST)

Kohli turns to Shardul Thakur now as he looks for wickets quickly. Thakur started off with a wide but has kept it tight more or less through the over. Just the three singles from the over as Australia move along comfortably to 176/0 after 26 overs. 

19:35 (IST)

Half-way mark in terms of overs, Australia more than half-way in terms of target. 172 for no loss in 25 overs. Finch and Warner have made a mockery of the chase.

19:26 (IST)

150 up for Australia within 23 overs. Warner celebrates that by dancing down the track and smashing a six over long on. Finch has not been picking Kuldeep too well but Warner is having no such issues.

19:19 (IST)

HUGE APPEAL for lbw but umpire Shamsuddin says not out. Finch the batsman, Kuldeep the bowler. Kohli cannot believe it. India have no reviews left. Finch got a good stride forward and was hit on the pad. Umpire thought there was bat on it. DRS says umpire's call.

19:14 (IST)

REVIEW! India call DRS for an lbw appeal against Finch off Jadeja. But they've lost the review, as it has hit Finch's inside edge. Stays not out. Nothing going India's way. Jadeja seemed convinced and asked Kohli to take the review.

19:07 (IST)

Australia doing this easily. India were given a pep talk by Kohli at the drinks break but it hasn't turned into wickets. Australia 125/0 in 18.

18:56 (IST)

FIFTY for Finch now, gets there with a single off Bumrah. He's taken 52 balls. Top partnership this.

18:52 (IST)

FIFTY for David Warner, with a single off Kuldeep. He's taken only 40 balls for the milestone, looks set for more. Finch remains on 49.

18:49 (IST)

India turn to Bumrah once again, hoping for a breakthrough. But Australia get two fours in that over, one through byes. Nothing going India's way.

18:45 (IST)

Finch is waiting for the ball that's tossed up in his arc, and he gets that from Kuldeep. He smashes that down the ground for a big six. He's on 49, but thinks he's reached his 50 and raises his bat in celebration!

18:42 (IST)

A six in that over from Jadeja, with Warner going flat over deep mid wicket. Seven runs from the over.

18:38 (IST)

No luck for India. Kuldeep got Finch's leading edge twice, but it evaded the fielder both times. India badly in search of a wicket.

18:35 (IST)

The runs just continue to flow. 13 from that over from Shardul Thakur, taking Australia to 84 for no loss at the end of Power Play 1.

18:29 (IST)

10 more runs from the ninth over, bowled by Shami. Aaron Finch with a couple of boundaries, taking Australia past 70 already. This is getting over quickly.

India vs Australia, 1st ODI at Mumbai: Australia Win by 10 Wickets to Take 1-0 Lead

IND v AUS latest update: David Warner is on fire and making Jasprit Bumrah look rather average here in Mumbai. He’s lashed on to a length ball and then one which was pitched up and played them through the covers with some immaculate placement to find the fence another couple of times. 11 of Bumrah’s over who can just and watch. Australia are 226/0.

Preview: Shikhar Dhawan – Rohit Sharma?

KL Rahul – Rohit Sharma?

Or, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul?

That is the big dilemma for India as they prepare for the first of three ODIs against Australia in Mumbai on Tuesday (January 14). It will show a sneak-peek into India’s strategy for the crucial opening spot.

There isn’t a context of a World Cup in the vicinity, which gives India some time to ponder over their combinations. The Australia series will be the first one where almost all their man players are available, which makes the three games even more interesting for all. Australia are a tough opponent too – they beat India 2-1 in ODIs here last year. They have arrived with an even stronger team, with Steve Smith and David Warner, who were absent last tour, returning. And given the three matches are played in batting friendly conditions at Mumbai, Rajkot and Bangalore, this could be a high scoring entertaining series.

This is the stern test that India, and Australia, want as they build towards the next ODI cycle.

Apart from the opening combination, India have a sorted line up, and it’s only a matter of picking players according to conditions. Rishabh Pant had a fairly decent series against West Indies, which should have reduced some noise around his place in the side. Now, it’s an opportunity for him to enhance his reputation against a stronger opposition. It’s a similar opportunity for Shreyas Iyer too; he has fixed himself as the No. 4 in the ODI side post World Cup 2019, and will be eager to make this chance count.

But will he get to bat at No. 4, if India play Rohit, Rahul and Dhawan? Kohli said it was ‘absolutely possible’ that he could move down the order to accommodate all three openers, which could mean Iyer might float down the order.

India’s bowling would welcome back Jasprit Bumrah. The bowlers struggled against the power-packed West Indies side, who kept attacking. Australia might take a different approach, but the result might be as effective. India will look up to Bumrah to change that, especially given they don’t have the injured Deepak Chahar for this series.

Australia will come with confidence given they beat India last year, that too after losing their first two matches of the tour. India beat Australia in the World Cup match, which should make them feel better too.

Australia have dropped Usman Khawaja, their leading run-scorer from the series in India last year. Instead, they’ve got Marnus Labuschagne, who has been in stellar form in Test cricket. Captain Aaron Finch, Warner, Smith and Labuschagne will form the core of the batting, which also has an upcoming finisher in Alex Carey.

The bowling is strong too, with Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc in the line up that also has spinner Adam Zampa. Cummins was the leading wicket taker last tour, and will be the biggest threat once again.

Not too long ago, India played a T20I in Mumbai where they thrashed West Indies after posting 240 batting first. Given the strength of both sides and the nature of the wicket, another cracking game could be in store.


India: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma (VC), Rishabh Pant (WK), Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shikhar Dhawan, Shivam Dube, Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, KL Rahul, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav.

Australia: Aaron Finch (C), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey (WK), Pat Cummins, Peter Handscomb, Josh Hazlewood, Marnus Labuschagne, Kane Richardson, D’Arcy Short, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Ashton Turner, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
