WIN vs AUS Finals: Australia crush Windies in final by 127 runs

India Cricket Live The Aussies won the toss on a pitch that misbehaved at times and hit 240-6 batting first. The they bowled out West Indies for just 113 and send a chilling warning to their rivals ahead of the Champions Trophy next month. The West Indies innings was a hopeless affair, best summed up by Runako Morton's 32-ball duck. Brett Lee took 4 for 24 while his partner Glenn McGrath bowled six overs for just six runs, two of which were extras. West Indies lost six wickets with just 56 runs on board. Ramnaresh Sarwan (36), Dwayne Smith (30) and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (12) were the only batsmen to reach the double figures with extras contributing 19.

Australia and India want final birth

Australia and India face-off in a crunch DLF Cup one-day match today, conscious that whoever loses will take the failure into the Champions Trophy next month.
Aside from the psychological boost a win would give, plenty more is at stake for world No.1 Australia. The last time they missed the final of a triangular tournament was the VB Series in 2001-02, which led to Steve Waugh being replaced as one-day captain by Ricky Ponting. The Aussies currently lie second in the DLF Cup table with seven points, one in front of India, a ledger that means a tie or wash-out in Friday's "semi-final" would be enough for them to make the final against the West Indies on Sunday. Australia will field a strong line up after experimenting in this tournament.
Glenn McGrath will spearhead a dangerous bowling attack with Brett Lee, while Matthew Hayden and Simon Katich should open the innings. With Ponting, Damien Martyn, Michael Hussey and Andrew Symonds in the side India's bowlers will have their work cut out. But if Indian captain Rahul Dravid has been encouraged by anything in Malaysia it has been his bowling attack, with Munaf Patel, Ajit Agarkar and spinner Harbhajan Singh coming into their own. Their batting has been less of a hit, with Sachin Tendulkar the only player to show consistent form. Australia Team: R Ponting, M Hayden, S Katich, D Martyn, A Symonds, M Hussey, B Haddin, B Hogg, B Lee, S Clark, G McGrath.
India Team (from): R Dravid, S Tendulkar, V Sehwag, Y Singh, S Raina, M Dhoni, A Agarkar, H Singh, M Patel, S Sreesanth, RP Singh, M Kaif, D Mongia, I Pathan, R Powar.

WIN vs IND Match 2: India wins by 16 runs after being skittled out for 162

West Indies made steady progress at the start of their innings, but soon were all out for 146 in 41 overs. Lara remained not out at 40. Harbhajan Singh was awarded the Man-of-the-Match award for his crucial 37 and 3 for 35. India must win on Friday, while Australia can get through with a tie or a wash-out.

Windies upbeat for India re-match today

India will find themselves up against a rejuvenated West Indies side as they seek their first win of the tri-series tournament in Malaysia on Wednesday. And having already qualified for next Sunday's final has given them a major lift ahead of the Champions Trophy in India, where they will have to pre-qualify despite being the defending champions.
Chappell, meanwhile, said he was disappointed about the fact that Indians could not play a full game so far in the series which was important to fathom the level of their preparations. Australia won the opening match over West Indies last Tuesday by 77 runs; West Indies beat India last Thursday by 29 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis Method; and the third match between Australia and India ended in a no-result because of rain.

Australia wary of Chappell factor

Former Australia captain Greg Chappell faces his countrymen for the first time on Saturday with India desperate for a win in the Kuala Lumpur tri-series.

WIN vs AUS Match 1: Australia beat West Indies in the opening match

Australian bowlers put on a sizzling display of attacking play to beat West Indies by 78 runs in the opening match of the Tri-Nations Series at the Kinrara Oval
Australia, who won the toss, elected to bat on a blistering hot day and that decision paid off handsomely as they chalked up 279 runs from the 50 limited overs match, with skipper Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke surpassing the half century marks.
Clarke was the leading Aussie scorer with 81 runs while Ponting complemented with 54 runs.
West Indies, who needed 280 runs, made a slow start but soon upped the pace through their middle order batsman. However, towards the tail-end, the West Indies batsmen collapsed, no thanks to the brilliance of Shane Watson's superb bowling.
The Series, played under floodlights for the first time in the history of cricket in Malaysia, was a show stopper among residents in and around Kinrara and Puchong.
