Symonds and Haddin set up Australia win

Andrew Symonds and Brad Haddin powered to 87 runs apiece to help Australia outplay India by 84 runs in the second one-dayer on Tuesday, avenging last month’s surprise Twenty20 World Championship semifinal defeat.

Australia amassed 306-6 after being asked to bat first in their first full one-dayer since their return from a long break after winning a World Cup hat-trick in April.

They dismissed India for 222 in 47.3 overs, taking a 1-0 lead after the opening game in the seven-match series was abandoned due to rain. Skipper Mahendra Dhoni top-scored with a slow 58 before being the last man out.

Symonds shared 108 runs for the fifth wicket with Haddin, who was unbeaten after his second successive fifty, after adding 94 runs with opener Matthew Hayden (75) to overcome a poor start.

Fast bowler Stuart Clark removed Sachin Tendulkar (16) in his first over and then trapped Robin Uthappa (41) lbw.

The third game will be played in Hyderabad on Friday. — Reuters
