A half-century by debutant Matt Wade (67 off 69 balls) and some power middle-order slogging by David Hussey (unbeaten 61 off 30 balls) propelled Australia to a 65-run thrashing of hapless India in the rain-shortened first one-day international.
Virat Kohli topscored with 31 off 34 balls for India and the tourists' last hope, skipper M.S. Dhoni, hit 29 off 38 balls before he was the second-last batsman out.
