Cricket: India bowl out Australia for 65 runs

2013-06-05 00:00

CARDIFF — India hammered Australia by 243 runs in their Champions Trophy warm-up match in Cardiff yesterday after skittling out the defending champions for just 65.

Umesh Yadav did the bulk of the damage with a stunning return of five wickets for 18 runs in just five overs, with fellow paceman Ishant Sharma taking three for 11 against an Australia side where Shane Watson was given a rest from batting, following his 100 against the West Indies. Australia were without captain Michael Clarke because of a longstanding back injury, which has made him doubtful for the side’s tournament opener against England at Edgbaston on Saturday.
