During the second ODI of the ongoing Australia's tour of India at Nagpur, India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja once again proved as to why he is arguably the best contemporary fielder. For India, Kuldeep Yadav was the highest wicket-taker, while Jasprit Bumrah and Vijay Shankar took two each. Alex Carey was dismissed by Kuldeep Yadav for 24-ball 22.
The result means Australia will lose the series if they suffer another defeat in Ranchi on Friday.
Bumrah fired out Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile in the 46th over, which cost one run, then conceded a single run during his final over.
Marcus Stoinis made an wonderful half-century when Australia was under pressure.
Sharma (0) top-edged off Adam Zampa and Dhawan (21) was given out leg before wicket after Australia´s appeal was upheld on review.
India vs Australia - Highlights & Stats
Kohli, invited to bat first in the low-scoring thriller that handed the hosts a 2-0 lead in the five-match series, scored 116 as India were bowled out for for 250 in 48.2 overs.
The range of front-foot shots against Stoinis enabled Vijay Shankar and Kohli to take control of the proceeding after fast bowler Pat Cummins and the spinners Glenn Maxwell and Nathan Lyon had reduced India to 75 for three.
Australia had made two changes to their side, bringing in Shaun Marsh and Nathan Lyon in place of Ashton Turner and Jason Behrendorff. Dhoni's first reaction was to hide behind Rohit Sharma and then he ran all the way to the pitch, in between his teammates with the fan behind him. Glenn Maxwell straightened a quicker offbreak enough from around the wicket to win an lbw verdict against Dhawan via the DRS, after the bowler insisted "that's out" to his captain Finch. He along with Indian captain knitted a crucial 67-run stand for the 7th wicket to stem the fall of wickets.
A more lasting union grew between Kohli and Vijay, the pair managing to avoid falling prey to the slowness and turn of the pitch while also lifting India's run rate. "Vijay kept it stump-to-stump, kept it simple, and it worked", said the skipper. Jadeja averted the hat-trick, and stayed with Kohli as he went to make his 40th ODI century, making him the only man other than Tendulkar to get this far.
India celebrate after they defeated Australia.
