India beat Australia

Virat Kohli-led India defeated the defending champions Australia by 36 runs in the Match 14 of Cricket World Cup 2019 on Sunday at London's Kennington Oval. 

Indian skipper Virat Kohli opted to bat first after winning the toss and took the full advantage of the conditions. 

Opener Shikhar Dhawan smashed his 17th century in one-day internationals as India's top order fired in unison to power them to 352 for five wickets. 

Australian team failed to chase down the target as they were all out 316-all out. 

Dhawan added 127 runs with fellow opener Rohit Sharma (57) and 93 with skipper Virat Kohli to lay the foundation for a big total before departing for 117 at the Oval.

Kohli made a typically breezy 82 and Hardik Pandya, dropped behind the wicket on the very first ball he faced, smashed 48 off 27 balls to justify his promotion in the batting order.

Marcus Stoinis claimed 2-62 for Australia who had beaten Afghanistan and West Indies in their first two matches.

Two-times champions India beat South Africa by six wickets in their first match on Wednesday.

Innings Break:

India post 352/5 against Australia. 

Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli played knocks of 117 and 82 respectively, allowing India to post a challenging score of 352 runs for the loss of five wickets.

After opting to bat first, openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma provided a steady start to the Men in Blue as the duo put up a stand of 127-runs, which saw both Sharma and Dhawan bringing up their respective fifties before the 22nd over.

In this match, Sharma became the fastest Indian batsman to score 2000 runs against Australia. Previously the record was held by Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar.

Nathan Coulter-Nile finally took his first wicket in this World Cup as he dismissed Sharma (57) in the 23rd over. Coulter-Nile bowled a slower delivery, Sharma tried to upper cut it, but he just managed to lob a simple catch to the wicket-keeper Alex Carrey.

After reaching his half-century, Dhawan changed the tempo of his innings and he started looking for some big shots. Virat Kohli came out to bat next, and he along with Dhawan did not let go off the momentum. The duo stitched together a partnership of 93 runs, which saw Dhawan bringing up his century from just 95 balls in the 33rd over.

In search of some quick runs, Dhawan`s (117) wicket perished as he was dismissed by Mitchell Starc in the 37th over. Hardik Pandya got a reprieve on his very first ball as he was dropped by wicket-keeper Alex Carrey.

Pandya and Kohli hammered the Aussie bowlers for boundaries in the death overs. Pandya played a knock of 48 runs from 26 balls, but he was sent back to the pavilion by Pat Cummins, ending the 81-run stand between Pandya and Indian skipper Kohli.

MS Dhoni who has been surrounded by the controversy of late regarding his army insignia on his wicket-keeping gloves came out to bat next, and he played a cameo of 27 runs off just 14 balls, but he was sent back to the pavilion in the final over as Marcus Stoinis took a stunning catch. Kohli (82) also departed in the final over, but India posted a challenging total of 352 runs on the board.

Aaron Finch said Steve Smith is number 1:

Australia captain Aaron Finch has hailed Steve Smith as the world's best batsman, saying having him and David Warner back in the fold is a huge boost for the team. 

Smith and Warner played their first official international matches at the World Cup in England and Wales after serving year-long ball-tampering bans.

Smith made a gritty 73 in Australia's win over West Indies after Warner smashed an unbeaten 89 not out in his team's opening win against Afghanistan. 

"Well, when you've got world-class players coming back into your side, it's unfortunate for the guys who have missed out and the guys that have played some really good one-day cricket in the past," Finch said. 

"Steve is the best batter in the world in my opinion over all three forms of the game," he said. 

"I think that when you have David who's so destructive at the top of the order, his record shows how destructive he is.

"To have them to come back, yes, it's great for the side and our batting line-up and for experience in World Cups and a great help for me as a leader, as well, in terms of tactics and stuff out on the field," Finch added. 

Jun 09, 2019, 02.14 PM

Ahead of match, Rohit Sharma said:

Rohit Sharma is seeking to curb his natural strokeplay and bat for longer to help India's World Cup campaign. 

The 32-year-old opener's cultured century ahainst South Africa reflected his new batting approach which put team interest above wooing the gallery.

"I think I have played more than 200 ODIs now. If I don't do it now, then when?" said Rohit. 

"Experience teaches you a lot of things, and that is something that has come into my game of late, the past few years rather.

"You want to make sure that you start the innings and you finish off the innings as well. That gives you immense pleasure."

India's quest for glory will face a stern test in formidable Australia, forcing Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to put their thinking caps on and contemplate a tactical rejig, as one of World Cup's most storied rivalries resumes. 

India were clinical in their six-wicket victory against a depleted South Africa while Australia, who have raised their game in the last couple of months, were professional against Afghanistan and brilliant in their come-from-behind victory against the West Indies. 

Having struggled in the past one year after suspensions of Steve Smith and David Warner, Australia finally seemed to have picked their pieces and are playing exactly like a five-time champions ought to. 

This will certainly be a cause of worry for India, who lost their ODI series at home during the last bilateral encounter and are still in search of a perfect combination both in batting and bowling. 

In fact, Australia's batting coach Ricky Ponting is apprehending a shift in strategy from the Indians, who have of late rattled them with quality pace bowling.
