Dinesh Mongia made a battling 63 not out but ran out of partners when Lee bowled Munaf Patel in the 44th over.

Australia and India want final birth

Australia and India face-off in a crunch DLF Cup one-day match today, conscious that whoever loses will take the failure into the Champions Trophy next month.
Aside from the psychological boost a win would give, plenty more is at stake for world No.1 Australia. The last time they missed the final of a triangular tournament was the VB Series in 2001-02, which led to Steve Waugh being replaced as one-day captain by Ricky Ponting. The Aussies currently lie second in the DLF Cup table with seven points, one in front of India, a ledger that means a tie or wash-out in Friday's "semi-final" would be enough for them to make the final against the West Indies on Sunday. Australia will field a strong line up after experimenting in this tournament.
Glenn McGrath will spearhead a dangerous bowling attack with Brett Lee, while Matthew Hayden and Simon Katich should open the innings. With Ponting, Damien Martyn, Michael Hussey and Andrew Symonds in the side India's bowlers will have their work cut out. But if Indian captain Rahul Dravid has been encouraged by anything in Malaysia it has been his bowling attack, with Munaf Patel, Ajit Agarkar and spinner Harbhajan Singh coming into their own. Their batting has been less of a hit, with Sachin Tendulkar the only player to show consistent form. Australia Team: R Ponting, M Hayden, S Katich, D Martyn, A Symonds, M Hussey, B Haddin, B Hogg, B Lee, S Clark, G McGrath.
India Team (from): R Dravid, S Tendulkar, V Sehwag, Y Singh, S Raina, M Dhoni, A Agarkar, H Singh, M Patel, S Sreesanth, RP Singh, M Kaif, D Mongia, I Pathan, R Powar.
