Cricket-Record stand helps Australia coast past India
COLOMBO, Sept 28 |
COLOMBO, Sept 28 (Reuters) - A record Twenty20 World Cup opening stand of 133 by David Warner and Shane Watson helped Australia cruise to a nine-wicket win over India in their first Super Eights match on Friday.
Watson, who also took three for 34 with the ball, won his third straight man of the match award in the tournament after lashing seven sixes and two fours in a 42-ball 72.
Warner made an undefeated 63 in 41 deliveries after rain had interrupted play three balls into the Australian innings.
India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was unable to stem the flow of runs despite using eight bowlers including part-timers Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
Dhoni won the toss and chose to bat first but his team were restricted to 140 for seven. Opener Irfan Pathan top-scored with 31. (Writing by Shihar Aneez; editing by Amlan Chakraborty)
