Australia outplays India, storms into finals

Australia outplays India, storms into finals

The lack of character from this Indian team was shocking. There was no fight, and little hunger. And let's not even talk about pride.

Pursuing 253 for a win — gettable even if the surface was offering some carry and movement — India was shot out for 165 in the 40th over. This was meek surrender.

The message that came out loud was — despite spending months down under the Indians are still struggling to cope with conditions. There can be no excuses.

Outplaying India by 87 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground here on Sunday, Australia (19 points from seven matches) is through to the finals of the Commonwealth Bank ODI Triangular series.

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
