India vs Australia

So that is all from here in Hyderabad, The Indians have started the series on a positive note and what is more important is that their middle order seems to be giving answers to the questions that were being raised. The away side has a lot that they would like to improve on, mainly on the batting front. The Aussies are struggling with their 50-over form and would like to set it straight in the very next game. That one will be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur. It will begin at 1330 local (0800 GMT) on 5th March, Tuesday. See you for the coverage of that game. Till then, take care and cheers!

               Bowling O M R W Econ  

Man of the Match, Kedar Jadhav smiles and says that his bowling is all about angles and reading batsmen's mind as he looks to bowl stump-to-stump. Admits that he doesn't feel like a bowler and just enjoys rolling his arm. Reminds that recently in Australia, he was involved in a similar kind of a chase. Thanks, MS Dhoni for continuously guiding him and adds that he is learning from Dhoni and Kohli as they are the best finishers. On the question that had Dhoni not been there how he would have batted - Jadhav smiles and answers that he might have tried to play more shots earlier but MSD can read your mind and reminds you about the game situation. Signs off by saying that every time you think about the team, more often than not you will end up on the winning side.

Victorious Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that the game was a difficult one and that they did well with the ball. Praises the partnership between Dhoni and Kedar that took them over the line. Reckons that bowling won them the game and he knew that a partnership or two will be enough. Informs us that he was happy that the middle order was put under pressure and he discussed with the coach about how this will be a shadow practice for the games to come. Reserves special mention for Kuldeep Yadav who he says is always ready to put his hand up and try and do stuff for the team. Does not forget Mohammed Shami who he feels did really well to lose weight and bowls with a lot of heart. Is happy with the way the pacer has come back into the white-ball setup and believes that the bowling unit is shaping up really nicely in the run-up to the World Cup.

Australia's skipper, Aaron Finch admits that they were 20-30 runs short on that wicket. Feels that had they batted well towards the end, they would have got that score. Praises his bowlers for putting in a good effort. Adds that everyone is trying and they just need to give attention to details a bit more. On not opting for the sixth bowling option, Finch mentions that the quicks looked more effective and that's why he stuck with them.
