A half-century by debutant Matt Wade and some middle-order slogging by the

Hussey brothers propelled Australia to a 65-run thrashing of hapless India in

the rain-shortened first one-day international on Sunday.

Australia recovered from an early wobble and

a three-hour rain delay to post a competitive 216-5 in their allocated 32

overs, before the tourists' batsmen crumbled to be all out for 151 under the

lights at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Wade, touted to replace the struggling Brad Haddin as Australia's

first-choice wicketkeeper, compiled an aggressive 67 in his one-day debut,

following on from his swashbuckling 72 in his first Twenty20 international

against India last week.

Man-of-the-match Wade combined with Mike

Hussey in a 73-run stand that righted Australia's ship after fired-up seamer

Vinay Kumar had put the hosts on the back foot early with two wickets in a

fierce five-over spell that yielded only seven runs.

The 27-year-old bowled David Warner for six

and had Ricky Ponting out for two shortly afterwards when the former skipper

spooned a simple catch to Suresh Raina at short extra cover.

Wade completed the 11th over by blasting a

six and a boundary to leave the hosts on 35-2 before the rain came.

He went on with the job after the break

despite the quick loss of captain Michael Clarke, who went for 10 after

slogging straight to Rahul Sharma at deep midwicket off the bowling of

part-time spinner Rohit Sharma.

Wade smacked a second six over long-on before

playing on to his stumps for 67, but the 36-year-old Hussey teamed up with his

brother David for another quickfire 32-run stand before becoming Vinay's third

wicket when he slashed straight to Virat Kohli at square leg.

David Hussey belted an unbeaten 61 as he and

debutant allrounder Dan Christian completed Australia's complement of overs,

carting the ball to all parts of the ground.

TENDULKAR OUT

Sachin Tendulkar, searching for an elusive

100th international century, came out to a hero's welcome in possibly his last

appearance at the MCG but was out for two.

Swiping at a short-pitched Mitchell Starc

delivery, Tendulkar succeeded only in bashing the ball into Ponting's hands,

the 37-year-old diving low to his right to take a brilliant catch and foil

"the little master" again.

Starc had Gambhir caught behind for five

soon after, and though Kohli and Rohit Sharma cobbled together a promising

53-run stand, Clint McKay removed them both on the way to match-best figures of

4-20 from fewer than five overs.

David Hussey jogged to his right to catch a

skied pull off Suresh Raina, who managed only four runs before gifting

Christian his first one-day wicket.

Reeling at 77-5, captain Mahendra Singh

Dhoni tried to resurrect India's innings but ran out of partners as allrounder

Ravindra Jadeja, who was bought for more than $2 million in the India Premier League

player auctions, fell for 19, before Ravichandran Ashwin was run out for five

attempting a foolhardy third run.

Praveen Kumar and Vinay slogged through an

entertaining 23-run partnership before McKay's fourth wicket wrapped up the

match, with paceman Ryan Harris charging in from long on to take a fine low

catch to dismiss Kumar for 15.

India play Sri Lanka in the second one-day

match of the triangular tournament in Perth on Wednesday.
