IND vs AUS, 1st ODI: Match abandoned due to wet outfield

Rain played a spoilsport during the second half of the India-Australia one-day series opener in Bangalore today, with wet outfield forcing both the on-gound umpires to abandon the match.
Chasing 308, India was 9 for one after 2.4 overs against Australia in the first ODI of the seven-match series in Bangalore on Saturday when rain stopped play. India could manage just 9 runs losing the vital wicket of Sachin Tendulkar for a duck. Gambhir and Tendulkar started the Indian run chase amidst rain showers in Bangalore when Tendulkar was caught plumb leg before wicket without scoring.
Earlier, Michael Clarke's brilliant superb century inspired Australia to pile up 307 for seven in 50 overs after electing to bat against India. Clarke's innings of 130 runs included 3 sixes and 10 fours.
Reported Earlier: Australia won the toss and elected to bat first against India in the first one-day international of the seven-match Future Cup series at Bangalore on Saturday.
Australia holds the edge when it comes to playing on Indian soil, even more since their 2003 World Cup triumph. In these four years, they've won 10 out of 14 ODIs against India. Gilchrist, leading the side in the absence of Ricky Ponting, who has been ruled out of the first one-dayer due to a hamstring injury, also warned of the depth in the Australian squad.
India team: Mahendra Dhoni (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh, Irfan Pathan, Ramesh Powar, Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh, Sree Santh.
Australia team: Adam Gilchrist (Captain), Matthew Hayden, Brad Hodge, Michael Clarke, Andrew Symonds, Brad Haddin, Brad Hogg, Brett Lee, Mitchell Johnson, Stuart Clarke, James Hopes.

IND vs AUS, 1st ODI: Gilchrist promises to make amends in India

Adam Gilchrist promised to make up for Australia's Twenty20 disappointment in the seven-match one-day international series against India.
Gilchrist, leading the side in the absence of Ricky Ponting, who has been ruled out of the first one-dayer due to a hamstring injury, also warned of the depth in the Australian squad. The Indians have been riding high ever since their unexpected triumph at the Twenty20 world championships in South Africa, with a raucous welcome and non-stop celebrations marking their return home.
"We have enough preparation leading into this series. We were probably caught short at the T20 tournament but there's no excuse now," Gilchrist told reporters here. "We know the conditions well here and with the amount of networking we've done we should be good to go," the dashing wicketkeeper-batsman said.
Gilchrist made light of the fact that the side would be without the injured duo of Michael Hussey and Shane Watson and also Nathan Bracken, awaiting the birth of his first child back home. "We definitely have to rely on the depth in our squad. We have six changes in this, our first ODI since the World Cup, owing to retirement and injuries and babies being born. "We've got a few new faces, which not a lot of people would have seen a lot of, and we're confident about them," he said.
India team (from): M.S. Dhoni (Captain), S. Tendulkar, S. Ganguly, G. Gambhir, R. Dravid, Yuvraj Singh, I. Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, R. Powar, Zaheer Khan, R.P. Singh, S. Sreesanth, R. Uthappa, D. Karthik.
Australia team (from): A. Gilchrist (Captain), M. Hayden, B. Hodge, M. Clarke, A. Symonds, B. Haddin, J. Hopes, B. Hogg, B. Lee, S. Clark, M. Johnson, B. Hilfenhaus, A. Voges.

The Venue

The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is one of the premier cricket stadiums of India, located in Bangalore, Karnataka. Flanked by picturesque Cubbon Park and uptown MG Road, this three-decade-old stadium is situated in the heart of the city of Bangalore. Formerly known as Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) stadium, the ground was later rechristened in tribute to Mr. M. Chinnaswamy who had served the KSCA for four decades and was president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) from 1977-1980. This 55,000 capacity stadium not only regularly hosts Tests, One-day internationals and other first class matches, but also other musical and cultural events. The stadium is the home ground of the Karnataka state cricket team.
