Handscomb played a much needed knock to help Australia find their way back into the game. He completed his run-a-ball fifty in the 44th over with a six off Kuldeep Yadav. Handscomb was finally dismissed in the 48th over when he found Dhawan at sweeper cover off Bhuvneshwar’s bowling. Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell then accelerated late in the innings as they added 34 runs off just 16 balls to take Australia to 288/5 after 50 overs. (Image: AP)

Chasing 289, India were off to a horrible start as they lost three wickets inside the first four overs of their innings. First debutant Behrendorff trapped Shikhar Dhawan in front of the wickets in the very first over. It was followed by a superb double-wicket maiden by Jhye Richardson in which the bowler picked the wickets of Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu. India were tottering at 4/3 at the end of the fourth over.

MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma then dug in and dragged India back in the game with a 137-run partnership. Both players got off to a slow start before picking up the pace. Rohit brought up his half-century in the 24th over with a boundary off Glenn Maxwell. Dhoni followed suit completing his fifty in the 32nd over with a boundary off Marcus Stoinis. (Image: AP)

Australia finally got the breakthrough in controversial fashion via debutant Behrendorff in the 33rd over. Dhoni was given out LBW but replays showed the ball pitched well outside the leg-stump. Rayudu had used up India’s review when he was dismissed and this left a disgruntled Dhoni with no option but to make the walk back to the dressing room. India were down to 141/4 at this stage.(Image: AP)
