Then Steven Smith teamed up with another Opener Aaron Finch. The duo hit the shots all the ground and took the score to 200. After hitting his fourth ODI hundred Smith lost his wicket to Umesh Yadav.
After a while Finch followed Smith. Finch scored 81. Maxwell and Clarke added few runs to the scoreboard and returned to the pavillion.
