Australia record easy 10-wicket win over India in first ODI

Australia openers David Warner and Aaron Finch both struck superb centuries to complement their bowlers' inspired display as the touring side handed out a 10-wicket thrashing to India in the opening one-day worldwide in Mumbai.

India, who had been put in to bat, were unable to make use of their full allocation as they were bowled out for 255 in 49.1 overs, with Mitchell Starc taking three wickets and Pat Cummins and Kane Richardson two apiece.

Warner, who finished on 128 not out from 112 balls, and Finch (110 from 14) eventually recorded the third-biggest ODI partnership for any wicket by an Australian pair as they cruised to victory with 12.2 overs to spare.

Team India's optional net session at Wankhede on the eve of the first ODI against Australia had a welcome visitor.

Warner raised his 18th ODI hundred in 88 balls with a boundary off Indian quick Jasprit Bumrah as he jumped with joy and kissed his helmet to celebrate the knock. He struck the first blow with the new ball when he sent back Rohit Sharma for 10. However, he lasted only 14 balls, hitting leg-spinner Adam Zampa for a six before offering a return catch to the bowler on the very next delivery to be out for 16.

Kohli felt losing four wickets for 30 runs in the middle stages proved to be the turning point.

The loss of wickets after Dhawan and Rahul's partnership as well as the wickets that fell after Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant aimed to rebuild the innings stifled momentum at crucial times in the innings and will be something India look to avoid again this series. "Pant is under observation at the moment", the BCCI said in a brief statement.

"Rishabh Pant has got a concussion after being hit on his helmet while batting".

Virat Kohli's decision to drop himself down to the number four position backfired in the series opener on Tuesday, prompting the Indian skipper to say that he might have to "rethink" his plans going into the second ODI in Rajkot.
