Australia Tour Begins On A Losing Note
India began their tour of Australia with a defeat in first one day international played at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Batting first, Australia (courtesy centuries from skipper Aaron Finchc and Steve Smit) set up a daunting task for the Indians with a target of 375. India during their run chase kept losing wickets at regular intervals (some tight bowling by Adam Zampa in the middle overs; he ended with 4/54), and with a soaring required rate, not even an attacking cameo by Hardik Pandya could see them through. India lost by 66 runs.
The second one day international will be played on Sunday, 29th November at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
