How the first Aust-India ODI played out

SNAPSHOT OF INDIA V AUSTRALIA, FIRST ODI

Score: Australia (0-258 ) defeat India (255)

Summary: India looked poised to set a big target at 1-134 after 27 overs before it all fell apart. Four quick wickets put Australia on top as Mitchell Starc's 3-56 had the hosts all out for 255. David Warner and Aaron Finch made light work of the chase, going at more than a run a ball as they chased it down with 12.2 overs to spare.

Man of the moment: David Warner's century was his fifth of the summer across all formats, as he destroyed India's bowlers. He is now averaging more than 170 for the season

Key moment: Pat Cummins held one up slightly to draw Shikhar Dhawan's leading edge on 75 and have him caught at cover just as he threatened to go big. It formed part of a collapse of 4-30 that killed India's momentum.

Stat of the day: Aaron Finch and David Warner's 258-run partnership was the biggest in history for any team for any wicket against India.
