Default Australia beat India by 24 runs in Mohali ODI to level Series 2-2

Mohali: Breaking News! Australia dashed India's hopes of making it to the top of ODI rankings, with a victory in the 4th ODI at Mohali. Australia beat India by 24 runs to level the seven-match series 2-2. It was a great bowling and fielding effort by Australian team, which won the match for them.




Earlier, India did very well to restrict Australia to 250 in 49.2 overs. Top scorers were Cameroon White (62), Ponting (52), Watson (49) and Hussey 40. For India, Ashish Nehra took 3 wickets, while Harbhajan took 2 wickets.

Chasing a victory target of 251, Tendulkar and Sehwag added 40 runs for the first wicket. Sehwag scored 30 off 19 balls. Sachin Tendulkar was batting very well, but he was wrongly given LBW, when the balls was clearly missing the leg stump. He made 40.

Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh did not last long. Dhoni tried to rescue the team, but failed, as he was out for 26. Harbhajan and Praveen Kumar reminded their heroic at Vadodara with some smashing shots. But that was not enough. India bowled out for 226 in 46.4 overs. Harbhajan made 31.

For Australia, Doug Bollinger and Shane Watson took 3 wickets each. Shane Watson was declared "Man of the Match" for his all-round performance. He made 49, took 3 wickets and 2 catches.
