Shane Watson and George Bailey have been unstoppable in the sixth One-Day International (ODI) against India at Nagpur. Australia are 213 for three in 35 overs. Watson got to a brilliant ton, his ninth in one-day cricket. However, he was then dismissed by Shami Ahmed.

Indian skipper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is searching for options and had even summoned Suresh Raina to bowl the 33rd over. However, he changed his mind and handed the ball to Ravindra Jadeja.

Watson has now taken on Mishra as he cuts him for four and then smashed him down the ground off the front-foot. That shot gets Australia’s 200. Watson has now moved into the 90s.

Australia have now taken the batting power-play and Dhoni brings back Shami Ahmed and Watson welcomes him with a beautiful drive through mid-off for four. Shikhar Dhawan dives, but doesn’t stop it. He then cover drives the next ball for four and puts a foot closer to his ton. A full toss on the pads is then helped across to square-leg for four. That helps him get to a hundred. The fourth ball of the over then disturbed Watson’s woodwork as he was out forr 102.

Glenn Maxwell is the new man.
