India surrendered meekly to a dominant Australia in the Super Eight Match at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. After getting pounded for 184, India slipped to a horrendous 50 for 7 in the 11th over. Although defeat was certainly obvious, the margin of it came down to 49 runs while India got to a respectable 135. That was all because of a magnificent unbeaten knock of 79 from 46 balls (with 4 fours and 6 sixes).
Dirk Nannes and Shaun Tait wrecked the Indian innings with three wickets each. Most of the Indian batsmen were bounced out by the Aussie quicks. This was after the Indian bowling with the exception of Harbhajan Singh (4-1-15-0) took a pasting in the hands of the Aussie openers – Shane Watson (54 from 32 balls with a four and 6 sixes) and Man of the Match David Warner (72 from 42 balls with 2 fours and 7 sixes).
