A much more close finish then what was excpected after Australia put up just 236/7 after winning the toss. But the difficult nature of the pitch made the game extremely interesting as strokemaking suffered. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma got good starts and looked set to take India past the line but three quick wickets in middle overs rocked the Indian ship before MS Dhoni and Kedar Jahddav steadied it with the unbeaten 141-run partnership. Both experienced players also brought up their fifties as India chased down the target with 10 balls remaining.
That's all for today. See you on Tuesday for the 2nd ODI at Nagpur. Till then, goodbye!
