Former Hampshire players Shane Watson and Glenn Maxwell made vital contributions with the bat as Australia defeated India by four wickets in the International Triangular Series ODI.

Although wicketless, Watson bowled a tidy eight-over spell for just 33 runs, while Maxwell bowled just two overs (0-14) as India totalled 267-8.

In reply, Aaron Finch hit 96 with Watson hitting 41 at quicker than a run a ball as Australia got home for the loss of six wickets despite a late wobble.

Maxwell hit 23 from 20 balls and was the last wickets to fall.
