Australia beat India by 47 runs

Australia went 2-0 up in their seven-match series against India with a fine 47-run win in Hyderabad on Friday. Yuvraj Singh racked up a ton but that, of course, was all in vain.

Andrew Symonds blasted a brilliant 89 as Australia set India a challenging 291 to win the third one-day international in Hyderabad.

Matthew Hayden made a half-century at the top of the order but it was the fourth-wicket partnership of 123 between Symonds and Michael Clarke which gave the innings real impetus.

Hayden and opening partner Adam Gilchrist put on 76 before the latter was bowled by Irfan Pathan.

Hayden made a 70-ball 60 but after falling and being joined back in the pavilion by skipper Ricky Ponting – back in the side after injury – with the score on 135 for three, the game was in the balance.

But Symonds and Clarke took the attack to the Indians with their century partnership coming up off just 93 balls.

Clarke departed in the 45th over, chipping a straight drive to Pathan off the bowling of Zaheer Khan for 59, but Symonds remained, continuing his onslaught until the penultimate ball of the innings when he holed out to Robin Uthappa on the boundary off Shanthak Sreesanth.

His 89 came off just 67 balls and contained five fours and five sixes.

Australia, who ended their innings on 290 for seven, lead the seven-match series 1-0.
