India has suffered a batting collapse at the Sydney Cricket Ground in the first ODI of a three-match series as the Australian quick bowlers have come out all guns blazing to take three quick wickets.

"If you see the last few matches that we played in UAE and India, we could play a finger spinner and a wrist spinner, but in South Africa and England two wrist spinners were critical for our success", he said. That wicket was 300 plus par.

"Personally, I always feel that Dhoni batting at number four will be ideal for the team but we have got Ambati Rayudu who has done really well now at number four". We thought 288 was quite gettable.

"We kept losing wickets at the wrong time", Sharma said.

Dhoni, playing his 333rd ODI, became just the fifth Indian to break through the 10,000-run barrier in the format.

Finch said his side's target will be to dismiss India's top-three batsmen - Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli - cheaply. "Rohit was outstanding and MS supported him but I thought we could have done better with the tempo of the game and we fell short. Till then it was just bowlers dominating and hitting their lengths because we lost 3 wickets and we were under pressure to build the partnership so obviously that point we only decided that we have got to take the game forward and once we got the 100-run partnership the mindset changed and we made a decision to kick on and get 6-plus an over".

Dhoni followed, but his controversial dismissal for 51 came soon after, ending a 137-run partnership. Rohit said it put pressure on other batsmen to build a partnership but denied suggestions that India's middle-order is light weight.

Stranded migrants arrive in Malta after standoff
Malta last week allowed the boats to shelter near its coasts from the bad weather but would not let them disembark the migrants. The situation on board both ships was said in recent days to be deteriorating, with food and water running short.

The idea is to make the most out of this series and get the balance right. Today was a different scenario, when he came out to bat we had already lost three wickets and Australia were bowling pretty well.

The 30-year old admitted that India were outplayed by the hosts, but maintained that the side is not too anxious about the results at the stage.

Haddin said Australia needed to take the shackles off and play with freedom to challenge for this year's World Cup, which gets underway at The Oval in May.

Over the course of those results - from February 2017 to December 2018 - Australia used a staggering 32 players too. I think days like these make you aware of things you have to work on as a team'.

Usman Khawaja scored 59 during his first ODI in nearly two years while Peter Handscomb, playing his first one-day match in 15 months, top-scored with 73 after Australia captain Aaron Finch won the toss and chose to bat.

'We knew that they'd try and take it deep and luckily we were able to take wickets and stem the flow, ' Finch said. I thought we were around par. We don't think about these decisions once they have happened, and you can not always be right.
