Australia A made light work of their 61-run target on day four of their tour match against India A, chasing it down in 6.1 overs to record a comprehensive 10-wicket victory on Saturday.

Usman Khawaja finished 41 not out from 23 balls, while Cameron Bancroft (21 not out from 14 balls) hit the winning runs with a six straight down the ground.

Earlier, India A resumed day four on 6/267 but Gurinder Sandhu started the first over with off-spin and struck immediately. Shreyas Gopal departed for a duck to a sharp catch from Bancroft close in, which triggered a collapse in the tail.

India A lost 4/7, with Sandhu picking up another two wickets to bring his match figures to 7/101.

Steve O’Keefe also picked up Shardul Thakur for 4 to dismiss India A all out for 274. O’Keefe finished with innings figures of 4/88.

Australia A will now head into a one-day tri-series against India A and South Africa A in Chennai, starting Wednesday.
