India beats Australia on a batting turf
Australian openers made a slow start. Warner took 84 deliveries to score a half-century. Finch wasn’t impressive either. The Australian batsmen were susceptible and over-conscious. They were trying to preserve the wickets for the ends. But the required run rate was always climbed. And it became virtually impossible for tail-end to match-up the required run rate.

West Indies is going to take on South Africa today at Rose Bowl, Hampshire. South African has lost all the three games they have played so far. West Indies have looked promising with their very typical storming pace attack.
