Australia level one day series in India

6:23 am on 3 November 2009

The Australian cricketers have levelled their 7-match one day series against India at 2-all after winning game four by 24 runs in Mohali.

Having folded badly to be bowled out for 250 inside 50 overs on a good batting pitch, the tourists were inspired by the aggression of Doug Bollinger, who took 3 for 38, to bowl the Indians out for 226,

The Australians had looked like ruing a string of starts, after Shane Watson (49), captain Ricky Ponting (52), Mike Hussey (40) and Cameron White (62) were all dismissed without going on.

Shane Watson finished off the Indian tail, taking 3 for 29.
