Unbeaten centuries from Aaron Finch (110 off 114 balls) and David Warner (128 off 112 balls) helped the visitors to crush India by 10-wickets in the opening game of the three-match series at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Tuesday.
The Aussie openers batted so well that it looked like an extremely one-sided contest.
Chasing a below-par score of 255 never troubled the pair of Finch and Warner; in fact, the way they played even 320-330 wouldn’t have made any difference.
