India win by 6 runs,India scored 186/7 and managed to defend the total by bowling out Australia for 180/10, however the result doesn’t really matter, but both teams ticked a few boxes. Agreed, the warm-up meant they could try all their options, a luxury which they’ll not have in a regular game. But Bhuvneshwar, Arshdeep, Harshal and then Shami nailed their bowling – the hard lengths, the bouncers, the variations and the yorkers, everything associated with death over bowling was ticked off. And not to forget some amazing catching as well – But they can’t really go overboard, it’s easier to nail death bowling in a meaningless game, can they do so under real time pressure? We’ll get to know on the 23rd of October. But for now, Rohit will be happy with what he’s seen. Positives with the bat for both teams and that was the least of worries for both squads – 50s for KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav and Aaron Finch, perhaps India would have wanted Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to spend a little more time in the middle, same goes for Australia with Glenn Maxwell.

Post Match Comments by Captains of both teams:

Rohit Sharma – I thought we batted well, towards the end we could have added 10-15 runs more. We always want a set batter to stay till the end, Suryakumar Yadav did it, overall a great batting effort with nice bounce, was a pitch where you can trust your shots. You got to be smart with batting on grounds like these. You can’t forget to push the balls into the gaps, scoring 8-9 runs in an over can be quite an effective plan. It was a great practice game for us. There is room for improvement, but I want more consistency from the bowlers. You need to keep things simple and hit the deck hard. Overall a good game for us, they had a decent partnership and that put us under pressure. He (Shami) is coming back after a long time, so we wanted to give him an over. Wanted to give him a challenge and let him bowl the final over, and you saw what he did.

Aaron Finch – We learned that we need to be clinical towards the back-end, we didn’t capitalize towards the end. We did drag them back after that blistering start from KL Rahul, happy with my own form. He’s fantastic (on Kane Richardson), every opportunity he gets for Australia, he’s there performing, that shows the depth of our pace bowling unit. 22nd will be a great day, looking to start off on a winning note, playing against New Zealand and at the SCG will be always special
