India have done it, Dhoni has done it! naysayers, go away. India wins series with 2-1 and this is their maiden bilateral series win in Australia. Although the finishing runs came from Jadhav-bat, Dhoni, unbeaten on 87, and was the glue that held together the chase-so to Jhye Richardson over accounted for Kohli for 46 in a 30. More importantly, Dhoni has done it without Kohli at the other end. Chahal 6 came for 42 instead of Australia to 230 odd in front of Dhoni and the goods delivered. What a tour this has been for India!

Fifty Jadhav. How well he has played! Could not clear the boundaries, so kept rotating the strike. India need 14 from 12. Dhoni at the crease in India should come home. But you to remain. This is going to be tight.

Australia lose their review. Should not be a spirit, the wicket it is for the benefit of the Dhoni. Was trapped in the crease to a ball angled in, hits about the middle but the height, always looked a Problem. Missing leg-stump! India need 59 from 49.

50-run stand between Dhoni and Jadhav. India need 68 and 62 balls. To come up with Jadeja and Shankar, do you reckon India are in a safe place now?

Fifty up for Dhoni! This is be 70. Half of the century in ODIs. Think about that. Also his third consecutive fifty in the series. Why are we talking about his form? India need to<78 70./b> Can end to Dhoni, this time without Kohli?

The fifth time, MS Dhoni has scored three goals or more 50s in a row in ODIs

Kohli This is a huge wicket. Kohli is furious with himself as he goes back into the hall. And it's that man again, Jhye Richardson, who produced the breakthrough. Drives off, edges behind, and the hands to catch to the keeper. Jhye is over the moon.

100 up for India! Kohli and Dhoni are finding ways to survive this phase, but at least they are still there. The couple looks a bit stuttered, when it comes to running between the wickets today. Dhoni should twice now. He was dropped by Maxwell at point off Stoinis, and then Australia messed up a exhausted chance at the bowler's end. The partnership is now in the 40s, so India can breathe a little easier.

The partnership is broken! Dhawan hits the slower ball back to the thrower, and Stoinis showing his sharp reflexes and takes a superb catch. First wicket for him, the second for Australia. And here is Dhoni to 4th place!

Early impact: Rohit a lbw call off Siddle had survived in his first over, but now she gets a outside edge to Marsh at first slip from the same bowler.

then to the Right, we are back. Light on. , Rohit and Dhawan in the middle, Richardson with the ball.

Covers... just for your info

Australia bowled for 230.. Shami is the last nail in the coffin. He cleans, Stan lake, and the hosts are rolling over within 50 overs. Bhuvneshwar India are on course with his early strike against Chahal came into play. The leggie broke the partnership between Marsh and Khawaja, and there was no stop for him. He added Stoinis, Richardson, Handscomb and Zampa to his kittens. Most of the Australian batsman got starts, but none could pass by Handscomb 58. India have a relatively simple chase on the hand.

Chahal = Agarkar: Wicket number six for Chahal and he Agarkar's record for the best bowling figures in Australia.

Five-wicket-haul: After he missed to pick up for the first two ODIs, Chahal returned the second best figures for a spinner (5/40) against Australia in Australia. He deceives Richardson in flight, and then pings Handscomb (58) LBW with a fast controller in successive overs.

FIFTY Peter Handscomb is that the most of his opportunities. Second fifty in the series for him-and this has been demolished, only 57 of the balls. Australia's hope for a good ride on him.

WICKET: Maxwell departs! Quick 26 off 19, it is added to Australia's Shami gets overall, however, India wicket a different key.To get a short ball, the top edge, but credit to Bhuvi for his running forward, diving forward effort.

Chahal vs. Maxwell.. right then! Maxwell acing it for now ... three boundaries already, each time Chahal has it wrong, he understood and was duly punished.

third for Chahal: He enjoys the turn here. Stoinis gets this time. Classic leg-spin, was large and Stoinis, who seeks to defend it, gets an edge to catch to Rohit, who takes a smart. Five below, Australia.

Make that two! Chahal strikes again! Caught and thrown in a bit of a tame dismissal and Australia have lost the second set batsman, Khawaja,. what a brilliant this turned out to be for the visitors. The tug of war the series goes on... Australia 101/4 after 23.4 overs.

After four economical overs, Jadhav leaks 15 in the fifth. But the good news for Australia is that the third wicket stand, the nerves. And just as I write this.. Marsh stumped! Dhoni is already fumbling behind the stumps today a little bit, but Kohli assures him that Marsh is not his floor. Replays confirm. The bat was in the air, Kohli is juat about right. Third success for India. More importantly, the key, is broken.

GOAL: a Lot of drama in the middle. Bhuvi first shells in addition to the referee and Finch pulls away. The referee calls it a dead shell, although Bhuvi and Kohli are not convinced. Forced to re-bowl that he Finch leg to fall -, before the, the;s swings again! India does not have to decide their second-wicket as Finch, to check. Good Call!

WICKET! Bhuvi gets Carey caught at second slip. Kohli takes a commendable forward-diving catch and Australia are down. Short delivery, pitched, Carey goes on the backfoot but leaves his bat hanging. Edges and taken.

And we are back early! Finch on strike, Bhuvi with the ball.

So, we hear, could the game start at 8:25am. Stay tuned!

Two balls, and the decision set has already been stopped. Covers to come back!
