Australia had an emphatic seven-wicket win over India in the triangular one-day series match at Seddon Park.

India won the toss and compiled a respectable 8-211 from 50 overs, but Australia was never stretched to reach 3-212, with two overs to spare, for its third win in as many matches.

Vice-captain Geoff Marsh, spinner Peter Taylor and paceman Merv Hughes returned to form after entering the game under injury clouds.

Taylor entered the match with a lingering shoulder injury that had affected his throwing but picked up 3-31 from his 10 overs, wrecking the Indian middle order.

Hughes claimed 3-36 from seven overs in his return from minor knee surgery while man-of-the-match Marsh, partnering Mark Taylor who made 56, hit 86 in his second match back in the side since breaking his right thumb during the against Pakistan in Adelaide in late January.

The Australians have used the their three one-day games to fine-tune the one-off Test line-up and captain Allan Border was overjoyed three of his key performers had come through so well.

"They all played really well," Border said.
"I thought Merv's seven overs were good and he'll have another workout on Saturday where he'll definitely bowl 10 and then the two openers were pleasing, especially Swampy Marsh.

"PT threw the ball up and I was very happy with the way he went. It was a very solid perform-ance again and things are looking real good," said Border.

Taylor combined with Border, who claimed 0-40 from his nine overs, to rein in the Indians who were travelling comfortably at 1-98 in the early part of the day.

Opener Woorkeri Raman, who topscored with 58, and Sanjay Manjrekar, 33, had begun to collar the Australian medium-pacers, but the Indians could only manage 56 runs and lost four wickets from the 16 overs Taylor and Border worked in tandem.

Taylor had Raman caught behind by Ian Healy and then picked up Vijay Chandrasekhar for three and Gursharan Singh for four as the middle order stumbled.

Taylor conceded 20 runs from his opening four overs but tightened his line and returned 3-11 from the final six overs of his spell.

Captain Mohammed Azharuddin added 52 in 35 minutes with former skipper Kapil Dev but it was only a late flurry by Kapil that took India past 200.

Kapil smashed an unbeaten 48 from 53 deliv- eries, hitting four boundaries and one straight six over the head of Simon O'Donnell.
