Dominant India thrash Australia


India defeated Australia in their World Cup clash by 36 runs on Sunday. This was India's 50th ODI win against the Aussies. India now have two wins from their two matches and moved up to the 3rd position on the points table behind New Zealand and hosts England. 

Batting first after winning the toss at The Oval, India got off to a great start with openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan adding 127 runs for the first wicket. Dhawan went on to score a strokeful 117 and was ably supported by captain Virat Kohli who scored a solid 82.  A quickfire 48 from Hardik Pandya aided India to post a strong 352-5 in their stipulated 50 overs. 

Chasing a huge score, Australia got off to a slow start with opener David Warner scoring a slow 56 from 84 balls and creating massive pressure on others. India kept picking wickets at regular interval and barring Glenn Maxwell (28) and Alex Carey (55), no other batsman threatened to thwart India's chances. 

Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, who was again played ahead of Mohammed Shami justified his inclusion in the squad by picking 3-50 in his 10 overs. Bumrah was once again excellent in the final overs and also picked up 3-62 and along with Chahal's 2-62 never allowed Aussies to settle. 

Dhawan for his match-winning 117 was adjudged Man of the Match. India will next play table-toppers New Zealand on June 13th.
