But a brilliant display from Peter Handscomb and Usman Khawaja brought back the visitors back into the game. "High scoring chase is always special".

Rohit Sharma, who was out for 14 runs in Ranchi, hasn't scored a half-century in his last five ODI innings. "This is a really big moment for us", Handscomb said. It just gives you so much competition.

The move had prompted criticism from within Pakistan, with both Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi calling for the cricket's world governing body to take action against and ban India for politicising the Gentleman's Game. "We have to work hard and we got to come up with more intensity and passion in the next game", he said. "I'm just pumped to be in an Australian team".

"The Indian cricket team did an inappropriate thing due to which their standard has fallen", he added.

The on-field call was upheld and Australia lost Finch and their sole review.

Khawaja (91 off 99 balls) and Handscomb (117 off 105 ) set the tone as they played Yuzvendra Chahal (1/64 in 10 overs) and Kuldeep Yadav (1/80 in 10 overs) easily. But as Handscomb pointed out, the team coached by Justin Langer and led by Finch have gradually been building up a sense of consistency and ownership about the way they play, and the way they intend on attacking the challenge of a World Cup.

India made 358 for nine against Australia in the fourth One-day worldwide here Sunday. The captain's prediction came true as Zampa bowled a delivery short of a good length and Jadhav went after it to hit a four in the mid-wicket region. "This is the least we can do for them when an worldwide match is being held", Sharma said. I had a lot of confidence. We're going to execute those plans.

"I turned up to the ground today and Marcus Stoinis was doing a fitness test, he has got a broken thumb".

"The thought process was take it as deep as possible because anything can happen". It is a case of him failing in one game and trust me, he is no robot.

"It provides so much of a chop-out for other guys. For a guy playing his second game, that was a handsome, mature knock". He eclipsed MS Dhoni's record of 217 sixes at Mohali.
