According to Chahal 6 for 42 - the best bowling figures by an Indian in Australia wrapped up, the hosts for 230, Dhoni India chase anchored by an unbeaten 87, alongwith helping hands of Kedar Jadhav (61 not out) and Virat Kohli (46).

Chase, 231, referee's call on an lbw review on offered, Rohit Sharma, a life early, but he couldn't hunt to make the most of it as a Peter Siddle finally sent him back in the sixth over of India. And that made the way for an intense session of 140+ thunderbolts of Billy Stanlake and Kohli to take the challenge head on. If slowly, Shikhar Dhawan played a perfect second fiddle to Kohli, so that 23 of 46 during his stay in the middle, as the duo resurrected the hunt.

Dhawan s soft dismissal came against the run of play to reduce with the kind permission of Marcus Stoinis sharp back to India to 59 for 2 after 16.2 overs. However, the visitors encouraged, their in-form batsman Dhoni at No. 4. After a few mistakes behind the stumps earlier in the day, Dhoni fought a little bit with his running between the wickets with both the former and the current skipper is pardoned on several occasions in its third wicket. However, the partnership, the Foundation stone for India's chase.

If the first half of the knock from Kohli all about acing was the pace, the fight against Stan lake, the second saw a series of tight shaved until his tame dismissal to 46. Fall slips from the bowling of Stan lake to 10, Kohli to have a life at 32, thanks to a wide throw at the bowler's end.

Momentary panic, with Kohli walk back and Dhoni with the consumed point bullets for fun, when India needed a further 118, but the senior statesman took on in the partnership, followed. Along with Jadhav, his first game of the series, the fourth wicket stand of 121 helped India over the line plays to spare with four balls.

Dhoni first marched to his 70. ODI fifty, off 74 deliveries, at the end of the 38th over, and then she picked up the fifty, the flowing runs in his stand with Jadhav who chipped in to keep up with some unorthodox shots, if not the boundaries, relieved that the pressure from the other end.

The couple respects the preferences of Richardson, the required finished with figures of 1 for 27 from his 10 overs and took Siddle and Stoinis to attack in the death overs, when the equation was on 44 from the last five overs.

Alex Carey stole out to Kohli at second slip, while Aaron Finch departed awkwardly trying to defend an inswinger that nipped back in, ping him on the knee roll plumb in front. And then, Chahal strengthened in their suffering, to rattle the middle and lower order. Peter Handscomb measured fifty came as the only solace, the avoid help you a sub-200-collapse.

However, with India employees, your part-Timer for eight rounds on the trot, after the first 10, which has both the new batsman in the middle is a bit of a breather. Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh has time to settle in, and relax the nerves, to the Foundation for a vital 73-run stand for the third wicket.

It was Chahal's first over of the series, the game on its head. The slow nature of the MCG pitch offered enough bend to the wrist-spinner, the match enjoyed the opportunity and went on to you, Ajit Agarkar for the best figures by an Indian in Australia.

It took the leggie all of two balls to make an impact, and his double-wicket over quickly swung the game in India's favor. He had to first of all, in the form of Marsh stumped off a wide down legside, and then a leading edge from Khawaja induced-to catch a bat for him of his own bowling as Australia both beat lost a man for the addition of just one run to their total.

To fluctuate Maxwell briefly threatened, the momentum, acing the challenge against his arch-Nemesis Chahal by the allocation to it of the fence three times. However, the counter-attack, only 19 deliveries lasted and resulted in 26 runs for Australia before Shami had him top-edge a short ball to Bhuvneshwar in the deep.

By hitting with the tail, Handscomb threw the anchor, and marched with his fifty off 57 deliveries in the 42nd. His third ODI fifty included only two boundaries, but Australia for a decent finish.
