India one up as Thendulkar shines

Tonight India beat Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) to go one up in the Commonwealth Bank triangular series with Sachin Tendulkar in commanding form.

There is no doubt the star of the match was Thendulkar but it was interesting to hear that the century he scored was the first one against Australia in Australia in the one day competition.

Without looking at the statistics its easy to assume that he had scored a century before against Australia in Australia and the century was his 42nd.

His unbeaten 117 made sure that India reached the target of 239 with four overs to spare.

For Australia Matthew Hayden scored an impressive 82 after a dreadful start where top order batsmen Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist and Michael Clarke all failed to reach double figures.

Tuesday will see the next match in this finals series at the Gabba in Brisbane and Australia has to win to force a third and deciding match in Adelaide but if the batting remains to be poor then Australia will fail to win the triangular series for the second year running having lost to England last year.
