India caught just short

A TRIUMPHANT tour of India continued for Hervey Bay's Nathan Hauritz on Sunday.

It came very close to ending though.

Australia beat India by only four runs in the opening showdown of the seven-match one day International series at Vadodara.

The 28-year-old off-spinner and former Cavaliers representative didn't bat as Australia scored eight for 292 off 50 overs after winning the toss and deciding to bat.

It was with the ball, Hauritz, who only 24 hours earlier had helped New South Wales win the inaugural Champions League Twenty20 tournament, played his part in the win.

He finished with figures of one for 34 off nine overs to help restrict India to eight for 288 in reply in their 50 overs.

Game two in the series is in Nagpur on Wednesday.
