"I thought if we restricted them under 350, it would be a great effort, and we did do that", he said.

In response, both Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma went past 70, piling on 139 for the opening stand, and with the in-form Hardik Pandya following up with 78 from 72 balls, India won by five wickets with more than two overs to spare. The side will also expect skipper Steven Smith to play a vital role in adding to the teams score tally. But we needed one big partnership chasing 330, which we didn't get. "That can happen. People have off days", he said.

Virat Kohli made three changes to the side from Kolkata's win, with Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Axar Patel coming in for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav. Umesh Yadav and Mohd Shami erred in length in their opening spells and played right into the hands of Warner (124, 119b, 12x4, 4x6) and Finch (94, 96b, 10x4, 3x6).

Speaking after India's loss to Australia in the post-match interaction at Bengaluru, Kohli accepted the praise rather humbly: "It feels good to get appreciation; it is a decent compliment". They did a really good job with that partnership. They were in a good position for the longest time before they succumbed to the pressure and couldn't get over the line.

A cracking cut towards the backward point in the fourth ball of the 31st over bowled by off-spinner Kedar Jadhav brought Warner's century in 103 deliveries.

Alstom & Siemens' mobility business to merge

"It (pitch) looked worse than it played".

The swashbuckling opener gave the visitors a rollicking start in the fourth match of the five-game series after they won the toss and elected to bat in Bangalore.

Warner, who have had a poor series till date, hit 12 boundaries and four sixes while Finch, who hit 10 boundaries and three sixes off 96 balls, missed out on a well-deserved hundred. They really paced their innings nicely and set us up to get 330 plus. The team was looking in good momentum but losing out wickets in the end broke during the crucial overs, the team failed to claim the victory.

The Aussie innings chugged along with brief cameos from Peter Handscombe and Marcus Stonis posting 334 from their 50 overs.

"I think 300 wouldn't have been enough", said Smith.
