Jadhav stars as India take opener with Aussies

2nd March 2019, 16:36 by Neil Foster

India beat Australia by six wickets in the first one-day international thanks to Kedar Jadhav's superb unbeaten 81 in Hyderabad.

The 33-year-old, who hit nine fours and one six in his 87-ball innings, added 141 with former skipper MS Dhoni, whose assured unbeaten 59 helped turn the tide in the Asians' favour.

Earlier in the day, the Aussies posted 236-7 from their 50 overs, with Usman Khawaja's 50 at the top of the order the highlight of a disappointing innings.

Glenn Maxwell's 40 was the next best score as too may batsmen got starts but failed to push on, with Marcus Stoinis (37), Peter Handscomb (19) and Ashton Turner (21) all guilty.

Wicket-keeper Alex Carey hit a rapid unbeaten 36 down the order to give the innings some momentum and the Baggy Greens looked to be in with a shout after India slipped to 99-4.

Shikhar Dhawan failed to trouble the scorers as fellow opener Rohit Sharma made 37, but once skipper Virat Kohli had perished for 44 it seemed as though the visitors might hold sway.

Dhoni and Jadhav had other ideas, with the duo playing risk-free cricket to get their side home with 10 balls to spare.
