Considering the India-Australia rivalry that has heated up over the last decade or so, this was a disappointing start to the series. A one-sided duel, with India never really in the game. Make no mistake, this defeat will not just sting the Indians, it will deflate them. There isn't much time for recovery either, with the next ODI on 17th at Rajkot. It's do-or-die zone and India's character will be tested. Australia won't want to leave it to the third game to pocket the series. Hopefully, we get a more competitive game next time around. On that note, this is Hari Sadanandan signing off on behalf of Vineet Anantharaman , Kumar Abhisekh Das , Nikhil Jadhav and Naga . Cheers and good night! Warner, Man of the Match: (If anything changed after the one-year ban) I think I have always had the hunger to score runs and put the team off to a good start. Was a great effort from our bowlers in the afternoon. To put India down to just 254 on their home soil was incredible and to then close the game down like we did was brilliant. Finchy started really well, allowed me to take my time. For us, it was about rotating strike during the middle overs. Wanted to hit the odd boundary, hang in there and take the game deep. We knew that if we were there till the end, we could do it with ease. I do a lot of training, I love to field. As a kid too, I loved to field. I enjoy that part of the game, I love to work 100 percent on my fitness. Finch, winning captain: I thought the way we fought back during the middle overs was impressive. Shikhar and KL were batting really well, looking to accelerate. So, I'm proud of the way the boys fought back. We could still brush up in the field a bit but that happens sometimes when the outfield is slightly damp. Overall, a good performance. Always tough to beat India in India. (On Warner's red-hot ODI form) He's been fantastic, especially in this format of the game. He's been unstoppable for quite sometime now. Quite special. Once he gets in, he has so many options to score. Always great to bat with him. Of course, India are a quality team and we expect them to bounce back. Kohli, losing captain: We were totally outplayed in all departments. It's a strong Australian team, if you don't play well, they could hurt you. We saw that with the bat in hand. We didn't get enough runs. I thought we were too respectful at certain phases and it cost us. Can't do that against a team like Australia. This is a chance for the team to bounce back but as I said, credit to Australia today. International cricket is always priceless. The experience you get in any format does well for you when you play other formats. The game time you get is important. If you perform in any format, it gives you confidence for the other formats. Today was one of those days when we weren't allowed to get into the game at all. (On him at no.4) We've had this discussion many times in the past as well, due to the way KL has been batting. We've tried to fit him into the team. Having said that, it hasn't gone our way when I have batted at no.4, so we have to see how it goes. At the same time, it's about giving opportunities to the other guys. People need not panic for just this one game. I think I am allowed to experiment a bit.

20:24 Local Time, 14:54 GMT, 20:24 IST: An extremely one-sided contest and the Aussies are 1-0 up in this three-match ODI series. 255 was below-par but the way the visiting openers batted, I doubt if even 320-330 would have made any difference. India's bowlers lacked discipline and were mauled around by a determined Warner-Finch pair, both of them cruising to unbeaten tons.

37.3 Shami to Warner, wide, well-directed bumper by Shami but it's too high as Warner evades it. 250-run partnership!

37.2 Shami to Warner, no run, low full toss and it's toe-ended towards mid-off
