1st ODI: Rohit Sharma ton in vain as Jhye Richardson stars in Australia's 34-run win

Rohit Sharma's individual brilliance was not enough to make up for a floundering top and middle order as India suffered a 34-run defeat at the hands of a resilient Australia in the first One-day International, here Saturday.Sharma conjured up a magnificent 133 of 129 balls for his 22nd ODI hundred but eventually it only helped in reducing the defeat-margin as India ended up at 254 for nine while chasing a 289run target.

Three of India's top four batsmen could not reach double-digit and lasted a mere 11 balls. With 10 fours and six sixes, Sharma reached his hundred off 110 balls, equalling Sourav Ganguly's record of 22 ODI centuries and is now behind only Sachin Tendulkar (49) and Virat Kohli (38).India were gasping after losing three batsmen at a single-digit score of four before Sharma and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (51) combined to stitch together a 137-run stand for the fourth wicket.
