India Vs Australia: Ignominious defeat for India
Last Updated : 26 Feb 2012 07:37:46 PM IST

India's Gautam Gambhir, center, leans on his bat after he was bowled for 23 runs by Australia's Clint McKay, right, in their one day international cricket match Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012, in Sydney. Australia made 252 in their innings.
 

Indian batsmen fell like house of cards at Sydney where Australia restricted them to a mere 165 runs in 39 overs. Aussies won the match by an impressive 87 runs.

 

Some call it bad start, some call it devastating. Indian cricketing "giants" fell by the roadside before Aussies bawling. India struggled at 127 runs in 34 overs with the loss of 7 wickets. But it did not take long for the team to lose all its wickets in the 39th over. It  could amass a mere 165 runs by the end of the game.

 

Virendra Sehwag the man who nurshes the ambition of becoming captain was quick to go in the very second over thereby setting off avalanche which drowned all including Sachin Tendulkar and Mahinder Singh Dhoni.


Sachin and Dhoni were sent packing at 14 each making Aussies win a likely possibility.


Gambhir, Kohli faithfully followed their seniors and were out before building even  25 runs. Indian batsmen were a sight to see and all talks of possessing top batting order by India looked like pure fiction

 

Australian batsmen scored a respectable figure of 252 in 50 overs at Sydney in an ODI against India. It lost ninth wicket in the last ball of the 50th over. A figure of 253 is not insurmountable for India. 

India needed 253 runs in 50 overs to win this match. Australian batting had been quite sensible wherein they played at ease keeping wickets safe in hand till last ball.

 

Virendra Sehwag was the luckiest as he claimed three wickets followed by Pravin Kumar and Umesh Yadav who claimed two each. Ravinder Jadeja claimed one wicket.

 

Winning toss Australia started off well as it scored 153 runs at the end of 32nd over. Later Aussies lost its seventh wicket at the end of 43rd over. But by then it had already scored 217 runs.

 

But the team could not use last overs to its benefit though it had enough wickets in its hand.Last seven overs , it could collect only 27 runs, not a brilliant performance by any standards.

 

The figure of 253 is not entirely surmountable for India provided it keeps its wits about itself. But given the recent past performance even this score may prove a hurrculian task.

 

The Aussies strategy looked simple. It aimed at saving wickets to lauch a scathing batting performance in the last 10 overs. But it failed this time as runs were not coming.

If India lose on Sunday they will fall at least eight points behind Australia and will need a bonus-point (five points) win over Sri Lanka in their last match next Tuesday to Hobart to have any chance of reaching the March 4-8 final series.
 
 A defeat for Australia would lift India on equal points with a shoot-out situation between the two sides -- win the final league match or perish.

  Interestingly, Sri Lanka -- top of the charts -- could also find a spot in the final slip out of their grasp if any one of Australia and India win both their remaining matches while the third team win at least one.

 

The final three league matches of the agonisingly close the series are between India and Australia on Sunday; India and Sri Lanka on February 28 and finally an Australia-Sri Lanka tie on March 2.

 Presently, India have 10 points to Australia's 14 and Sri Lanka's 15 on the charts. Among the three, India's situation
is most dire as they appear the lightest in the competition.
    
Australia have suffered a setback with captain Michael Clarke out due to a stiff back. Returning all-rounder Shane Watson will lead the team in his absence.

 

 Australia have also left out Ryan Harris for Clint McKay.

India have discarded the rotation policy, as far as the batting order is concerned. All three openers, Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir are in the playing eleven. Rohit Sharma has been left out.

 

India though are hampered by lack of fit bowlers. Zaheer Khan and Vinay Kumar were unavailable for selection and hence
Praveen Kumar has been drafted in for only his second game of the one-day series. Irfan Pathan and Umesh Yadav will be the other two fast bowlers.

 

Before the match, Sachin Tendulkar was awarded with honorary membership of the ground by the SCG Trust.
