Earlier, Indian batsmen struggled against the Australian fast bowlers as they managed to put up a modest 140 for seven in their Super Eight match of the World Twenty20.
Opting to bat on a slowish wicket, India were found wanting against the pace of Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc while they had little answers for Shane Watson’s guile.
Watson (3/34), and Cummins (2/16) shared five wickets between them while Starc removed one batsman.
The experiment to promote Irfan Pathan as makeshift opener partially paid off as he made a scratchy 31 and was the top scorer while most of the other batsmen failed to cross 20.
