Here is first innings report from Hindustan Times.

--------------------------------------------------------------

 

Australia set 360-run target for India

Johannesburg, March 23

 

 

Ricky Ponting hit a majestic undefeated 140 in the World Cup final and put on an unbroken stand of 234 with Damien Martyn as Australia amassed 359 for two from 50 overs against India on Sunday.

 

The total, after the 1999 champions were put in on a damp pitch, was the highest ever scored in a World Cup final. It was also an Australian record.

 

Ponting hit eight sixes and four fours in his 121-ball knock. Martyn, playing with a broken finger, made 88 not out.

 

Ponting had got to his 50 off a relatively pedestrian 74 balls but then hit 50 more runs off the next 29, an assault which included five sixes and a four.

 

It was his 13th one-day century.

 

An extraordinary 109 came off the last 10 overs.

 

Earlier Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden also put on a quickfire century opening stand to demoralise India's pace attack from the very start.

 

Gilchrist fell for a 48-ball 57 after the two left-handers hammered 105, the champions' best start in the tournament, in 14 overs. Hayden made 37, like Gilchrist falling to off spinner Harbhajan Singh.

 

India's quick bowlers, so effective throughout the tournament, completely lost their radar under the opening assault, despite being offered swing and seam movement by a dampish pitch.

 

Javagal Srinath ended by conceding 87 from 10 overs while Zaheer Khan went for 67 from seven.

 

India were unchanged while Australia recalled Martyn despite his fractured right index finger, with all rounder Ian Harvey left out.

 

Australia: Ricky Ponting (captain), Adam Gilchrist, Matt Hayden, Damien Martyn, Darren Lehmann, Michael Bevan, Andrew Symonds, Brad Hogg, Andy Bichel, Brett Lee, Glenn McGrath. 12th man: Ian Harvey.

 

India: Sourav Ganguly (captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Mohammad Kaif, Raul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh, Dinesh Mongia, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Javagal Srinath, Ashish Nehra. 12th man: Sanjay Bangar.

 

Umpires: Steve Bucknor (West Indies) and David Shepherd (England).

 

Third umpire: Rudi Koertzen (South Africa).

 

Match referee: Ranjan Madugalle (Sri Lanka).
