Cardiff: In a sensational display of disciplined fast bowling, India knocked Australia cold in a warm-up match the Swalec Stadium here on Tuesday. Umesh Yadav took five for 18 as Australia collapsed to 34 for six wickets by the end of the 12th over, never to recover again in pursuit of a 309-run target. India won by a massive 243 runs, their second victory is as many practice matches, ahead of their first ICC Champions Trophy game against South Africa on Thursday. On Saturday, India had defeated Sri Lanka by five wickets at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Yadav bowled the right lengths as Australian batsmen played loose strokes too early in the innings. Matthew Wade and Phil Hughes were bowled playing across the line to fuller balls while David Warner was caught at first slip playing an expansive drive.
