The Kangaroos were upbeat and were expected to overcome the Indians. However, the depth in the Indian batting lineup ensured a steady and robust start, which was capitalized by the middle order, which accelerated the run rate at the right time. It was followed by some accurate bowling which choked the Kangaroos, and they fell 36 runs short of the target.
