Austarlia beat India in the series opener

Hussey“It was good fun. I really enjoyed the partnership with White in particular and the assault in the end came good. There was no target set; we tried to get to 300. The outfield is small is some places and very very fast; it’s a difficult ground to defend.” Man of the Match Hussey.

“What we wanted to do was to take the game till the end. Five overs of powerplay was left and we should have achieved it but. We need to improve the death bowling and batsmen to carry on to make big scores.” Dhoni

“It was a pretty good performance other than six or seven overs in the end. The wicket held up nicely and the outfield was fast. We were just good enough to hold out in the end.  Told Siddle to be just calm and have one thought .. just keep it simple.” Ponting
