Stadium: Virat Kohli-led India eying on historical 500th win in ODI

"When he said that, I was clear mentally that the only way to defend those runs is by picking wickets and if I can bowl straighter, (I'll) give myself a chance to take wickets", he said adding that he only bowled the last over for his club side before this.

They needed 11 from the final over but Vijay Shankar took the last two wickets including Marcus Stoinis for 52.

The pitch was already showing a two-paced nature with shot-making not easy, and India lost wickets regularly.

Shankar said he would not over-react after taking match-winning wickets but is glad that he could help the tea win.

India got off to a poor start losing Rohit (0) cheaply but Kohli staged a lone battle to single-handedly steer India to a respectable total on the board. The spectator first shook hands with Ambati Rayudu before heading towards Dhoni, who hid behind Rohit Sharma to play around with him and later sprinted towards the stumps as the fan failed to catch up with the pace of the former Indian captain. Zampa struck twice more to remove Kedar Jadhav on 11 and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, caught at slip for a first-ball duck, as India slipped to 171-6 in the 33rd over.


Australia will take some solace from the fact that some 248 of India's 250 runs were scored when Kohli was at the crease, with Cummins insisting there are plenty of positives as the World Cup looms large. In doing so, he reached 100 off 107 balls. Kohli was finally dismissed while trying to pull Pat Cummins.

He and Usman Khawaja opened with a combined 83, then both perished within two overs. A direct hit from Jadeja changed the game as Handscomb was run out on 48 in the 38th over with 60 runs still needed.

Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav was the most successful among the Indian bowlers with figures of 3/54 in his 10 overs.

Carey became Yadav's third victim while Nathan Coulter-Nile and Pat Cummins were out during the 46th over, a cracker from Jasprit Bumrah that cost just one run and ended with Stoinis turning down a single to keep strike.

Stoinis had been patient building his 52, but he was denied from being the match-winner when he swiped at Shankar and was hit plumb on the back leg.
