IND vs AUS, 6th ODI: Australia beat India by 18 runs, win the future cup series (AUS 4:1)

Australia won a seven-match limited overs series against India by beating the hosts in the penultimate game by 18 runs Sunday in the western city of Nagpur.
In reply to Australia's mammoth total of 317, India initiated a spirited start to their daunting run chase. The Indian opening combo of Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar did exactly what they were expected to do. They not only shared a 140-run stand for the opening wicket but also showed the way to counter the world champion bowling attack. Sixes from Sourav Ganguly again highlighted the fact that the Bengal southpaw is still good enough to play the shorter version of the game.
After Sachin Tendulkar's run a ball 72, Irfan Pathan, who was promoted up the order, chipped in with an useful run-a-ball 29 before left-armer Brad Hogg claimed his wicket. India's most dependable batsman Rahul Dravid failed to come out of his poor form. Dravid departed just when India required a good innings from him. Trying to clear the infield Dravid holed a simple catch in deep long on for 7.
Then, Yuvraj Singh lost his wicket. A straight full toss from Hogg caught Yuvraj plumb in front of wicket.
Earlier, Andrew Symonds made an impressive 107 off just 88 balls to power Australia to 317 for eight after electing to bat. The final match will be played in Mumbai on Wednesday.

IND vs AUS, 6th ODI: India faces daunting task to stay alive in series

India will need to play out of their skin to stop the mighty Australians from clinching the series as they go into the must-win sixth cricket one-dayer here Sunday with their confidence dented by the Vadodara debacle.
The nine-wicket thrashing in Vadodara not only allowed the Australians to take an unassailable 3-1 lead in the seven-match series but came as a big blow for the home team which had raised hopes of a spirited fightback. The Indians have now been left with the daunting task of winning the last two matches to level the series, a task which is not impossible, but appears extremely difficult going by their current form.
Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has asked his teammates to forget the Vadodara humiliation and look ahead to the remaining two matches of the series but the Australians are in no mood to allow India to recover at all. The hosts need to put their last defeat firmly on the backburner and raise their game by a few notches at the VCA stadium where the batsmen are expected to have a field day.
