Australian cricketers suffer again

6:27 am on 4 October 2008

The Australian cricket side is struggling in its only warm up game ahead of the test series against India.

Heading into the third day of the four day match in Hyderabad Australia is 191 for four, well short of the 455 compiled by the Indian Board President's XI and still needing another 115 runs to avoid the follow on.

Opener Matthew Hayden made just 20 and partner Simon Katich 15 while captain Ricky Ponting scored 41.
