Anjum Chopra, who was part of the Indian Women's team during the 2005 World Cup in South Africa, returned home with mixed emotions as her team faltered at the final stage to lose to Australia in the summit clash.

Sri Lanka picked up wickets in quick succession in an hour before dinner to strengthen their grip on the game.

It was a tale of two contrasting periods of play in the second session that left Pakistan stuttering in a tall chase against Sri Lanka in Dubai in the second Test.

Warner asked his batsmen to adopt the 'Aussie brand of cricket' to overcome the 0-1 deficit in the three-match series.

The reins of leading Australia have transferred to David Warner at a less-than-ideal moment.

But, the opener on Saturday too admitted that he had a torrid time facing India's left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav and 'had a little bit of brain fade' while facing him in Ranchi. Finch was going well and looked in top form before he got-out to Kuldeep's left-arm spin, which triggered Australia's downfall in their nine-wicket defeat to India in the first T20.
