Adelaide: Feb 12, 2012

India need to chase a respectable score of 269 runs in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) match at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide on Sunday.

Earlier Indians were asked to bowl after losing the toss. Australians lost Ricky Ponting early, who opened the batting for just six runs.

Indians were sharp in the field as Rohit Sharma s strong reflexes resulted in dismissal of dangerous David Warner who was run out for 18 runs.

But the middle-order batsman David Hussey consolidated the Australian innings with a 98-run partnership with Peter Forrest with the latter contributing 66 runs to the hosts total.

Opener Virender Sehwag will be opening the Indian batting along with his regular partner Gautam Gambhir as the batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has been rested.
