India finish at 255-6 in first ODI
Indian cricket team were subdued by early swing and were reduced to 87 for 5, here in the first of the three ODIs on Friday. Tinashe Panyangara and Brian Vitori exploited the favourable conditions with the new ball before Chamu Chibhabha took over finishing his spell with two wickets, two maidens and going for just 25 runs. However, Ambati Rayudu (124*) and Stuart Binny (77) assembled a record-breaking 160-run partnership, the highest sixth-wicket stand for India, to haul their side to 255. It is India’s first assignment after a heart-breaking series-defeat against Asian neighbours Bangladesh and taking the hosts lightly is hardly an option for the World Cup semifinalist as the African nation has shown progress and promise of late.
