Nathan Coulter-Nile spoke to the media after Australia's narrow loss in the opening ODI match of the Qantas Tour of India.

Coulter-Nile and Adam Zampa took two crucial wickets each, but it wasn't enough to stop India chasing down the target of 237 with ten balls remaining.

Usman Khawaja scored a vital half century, while Glenn Maxwell (40) Marcus Stoinis (37), Alex Carey (36 n.o) and Coulter-Nile (28) chipped in to help Australia post a competitive target on a difficult batting wicket in Hyderabad. 

Australia travel to Nagpur today to begin preparations for the second ODI against India on Tuesday.
