Steve Smith century helps Australia beat India in 1st ODI (Pictures)

  • Australia defeat India by 66 runs in the 1st ODI at the SCG
  • Steve Smith struck a 62-ball century for Australia
  • Smith's knock was the third fastest hundred for Australia in ODIs
  • Captain Aaron Finch also scored a century for the hosts


A 62-ball century from Steve Smith - the third fastest in Australian history - helped lead Australia to a 66-run victory over India in the 1st ODI at the SCG on Friday.

Smith's memorable knock before going for 105 was accompanied by a century from his captain Aaron Finch, who top scored with 114 in Australia's 374/6.

India were 53-0 after five overs of the chase before things faltered. That included captain Virat Kohli departing for 21. 

A fifth wicket stand between Shikhar Dhawan (74) and Hardik Pandya (90) gave Indian fans hope through the middle overs. 

But they ultimately fell short at 308/8 and now need to win the two remaining games to take the series.

The best of the action is below.
