India all-rounder Praveen Kumar is congratulated after getting the wicket of Ricky Ponting during the first final of the CB tri-series at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney, on Sunday.
Australia made a slow start after Adam Gilchrist's final appearance in Sydney ended prematurely when he departed for seven, mistiming a short delivery from Kumar to Yuvraj Singh at mid-on.
Kumar bagged a second wicket in his opening spell when Australia captain Ponting played on for one.
