BANGALORE - India were all out for 214 in their World Cup warm-up match against Australia here Sunday.
Virender Sehwag was the top scorer with a well-made 54 off 56 balls. Yusuf Pathan contributed 32 while Ravichnadran Ashwin (25 not out) and Ashish Nehra (19) took the team past 200 with a 27-run stand for the last wicket.
India were bowled out in 44.3 overs, though at one stage, it looked like the hosts would be packed off much earlier when they were struggling at 138/8. Pathan and Ashwin forged a 49-run stand for the ninth wicket to add respectability to the total.
Brett Lee led the Australian charge, taking three wickets while John Hastings and David Hussey took two wickets each.
