India were handed a huge and shocking defeat, thanks to the unstoppable duo of David Warner and Aaron Finch, both of whom scored centuries each to clinch the first ODI comfortably for Australia. The altered  Indian batting line-up was battered by the might of the Australian bowlers following which the Indian bowlers were hammered all around the park, without any respite even for world number one bowler Jasprit Burmah.
