Australiaproduced a superb performance to beat India and win the 1st ODI of the series in Vadodara. Australia have been playing some great One Day cricket in recent times, they won the Natwest One Day series in England 6-1 and they then managed to retain their Champions Trophy title in South Africa.
Skipper Ricky Ponting top scored with 74, Michael Hussey made 73 while Cameron White and Tim Paine also chipped in with half centuries as well.
Australia would have been very confident of sealing a victory when they reduced India to 20107 but a brilliant late order partnership between Harbhajan Singh and Praveen Kumar, left India needing just 9 off the last over.

Peter Siddle held his nerve however and India fell 4 runs short as Australia took a 1-0 lead in the 7 match series.

Harbhajan hit 49 from 31 with 3 sixes.
Game 2 of the series is on Wednesday.
It would take a brave person to Betagainst India turning the series around.
