India's batting floundered miserably again to give Australia a massive 87-run victory in the tri-series ODI match on Sunday and only a miracle can now help the beleaguered team to qualify for the finals. The Indians did reasonably well in the death overs to restrict the hosts to 252 for nine but could never really recover from the early jolts to fold up for a paltry 165 in 39.3 overs to suffer their third defeat on the trot in what turned out to be a lop-sided contest marked by controversial 'obstruction' incidents. The resounding victory has given Australia a berth in the finals as they rode on useful batting contributions from David Warner (68), Matthew Wade (56) and David Hussey (54) and some disciplined bowling on a sporting SCG track.
