Rohit's ton in vain as India lose 1st ODI

Rohit's ton in vain as India lose 1st ODI

"The match officials' report, which was handed over to the India team management, cited concerns about the legality of the 33-year-old off-spinner's bowling action", said the ICC in a statement.

It got worse for India when Kohli was caught at square leg off Richardson for three and two balls later Ambati Rayudu was trapped leg before wicket by Richardson after a review for a two-ball duck, leaving India rocking at four for three.

"These things happen and you can not always be right".

"A relatively new team in the ODI set up to be able to knock off India and play really well with everything we have coming up is going to be great", said Behrendorff. "The ball might have started to reverse a little, we got hit into the stands a few times which might have helped scuff up the ball".

He also praised Jhye Richardson for his commendable bowling in the match.

India's ODI vice-captain Rohit Sharma believes No. 4 is the "ideal" position for MS Dhoni as India continue to jostle with their middle-order combinations ahead of the World Cup.

With Behrendorff's height and left-arm angle and Richardson's skiddy pace there were different challenges posed by Australia's latest new-ball attack. "We believe that Rayudu is the right person to capitalise because he's experienced and he has won many games for his state and in IPL cricket", Virat Kohli said before the ODI series against West Indies late previous year.

Australia fended off an explosive century from Rohit Sharma to post a morale-boosting 34-run victory over India in the first one-day worldwide.

"But we know in one-day cricket you've got to make sure that you're playing courageous and moving the game forward".

"It's been a really tough road for the last three years but to focus on some white-ball cricket, get some continuity and then to get the opportunity to play for my country is unreal", he said. "One way to settle the nerves".

India captain Virat Kohli told reporters on Friday the "inappropriate comments" were something he and his team "definitely don't support".

"Unfortunately all four hundreds I have scored in Australia, we have lost all the games", he said.

India sealed a maiden Test series win over Australia at the SCG on Monday but slipped 1-0 down in the three-match 50-over series at the same venue on Saturday after failing to top the hosts' 288-5, despite Rohit's magnificent 133 from 129 balls. Yousuf said until Smith and Warner returned to the Australian side their World Cup chances were also bleak.

Desperate to shore up a World Cup defence that looked in very bad shape after three wins from Australia's past 21 completed ODIs, selectors made six changes.
