India exploring Australian gas supplies for clean, affordable power: Piyush Goyal

Brisbane, Feb 08 (ANI): Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy Piyush Goyal on Monday said that the Government of India is willing to consider long term fixed price contracts with Australia for the supply of gas which will enable power producer to enter into a power supply contract at an affordable price.

Would like to finish tour strongly: Virat Kohli

Sydney, Jan 22 (ANI): The Indian Cricket team is trailing behind in the five-match ODI series by 4-0, but vice-captain Virat Kohli is optimistic about the remaining matches.

Giving credit to Australia, Kohli added that international cricket is all about capitalising key moments, which the hosts have done better. Kohli became the fastest batsman in the world to reach 7,000 ODI runs. He achieved the mark in 161 innings beating AB de Villiers’ 166 innings.

Dhoni says Australian bowlers executed their plans well

Brisbane, Jan 16 (ANI): India’s ODI skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has said that the Australian bowlers executed their plans well after his team lost second one-day by seven wickets in Brisbane. Rohit Sharma burnished his reputation in limited-overs cricket with a second successive century but could not stop Australia from winning the second one-day to consolidate their lead in the series. Dhoni admitted that the major problem in his side was of execution and the Australian bowling made it difficult for the Indian batsmen to score at the later stage of the innings. Australia's opening pair eventually fell in quick succession after identical knocks of 71, but George Bailey added 78 runs with skipper Steven Smith (46) and George Maxwell (26 not out) hit the winning run to complete the chase with one over to spare. Aaron Finch said his 145-run partnership with Marsh gave them an advantage and also praised counterparts’ bowling attack. Bailey followed his 112 in Perth with a 58-ball knock that included six boundaries and a six. The third ODI between the two teams will be played on Sunday in Melbourne.
