After a rare failure in Sydney, Indian batsmen came to the fore in Adelaide and powered them to a thrilling win.

Dhoni down on the ground

MS Dhoni was down on the ground for a brief period during the commercial break in between the overs. Dhoni took 2-3 minutes extra to get back on his feet and even the physio was called out. Running a triple and a double off two deliveries got the toll on the former Indian skipper.

Good batting from Dhoni and Karthik

16:22 hrs IST

Two keepers look to take India over the line

After Dhoni hit his first six of the innings in the last over, Dinesh Karthik now gets into the act and pulls a Richardson delivery towards the square leg for a boundary. The match is heading for a close finish.

16:17 hrs IST

First six of the innings for Dhoni

MS Dhoni comes dancing down the track and hits the ball over the deep mid wicket ropes for a six. India need more of those from their former skipper. 11 runs came from the over from Lyon.

14:12 hrs IST

Virat Kohli falls

That is the wicket that Australia were hoping for and that is what Jhye Richardson has provided. Kohli hits the ball into the hands of the fielder at deep mid wicket and he has to depart for 104. Time for MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik to show their mettle.

16:05 hrs IST

Stat attack

15:59 hrs IST

Kohli completes ton

Virat Kohli takes a single and with that, he completes his century. This is Kohli’s 39th ODI ton and he has single-handedly put India slightly ahead of the Aussies in the match. This is Kohli’s 24th ton in a chase and the second best is Sachin Tendulkar who had scored 17 centuries.

15:55 hrs IST

Kohli survives on 97

15:50 hrs IST

Dhoni survives on 12

15:39 hrs IST

Kohli enters 90s

Short and wide from Stoinis and Kohli gets on top of the ball and cuts it for a boundary past the point fielder. Fifth four of the innings for Kohli as he enters his 90s now. India are doing it easily now with their skipper on top of his game.

15:33 hrs IST

Second six of the innings for Kohli

15:16 hrs IST

Time for Kohli-Dhoni special?

MS Dhoni has now joined Virat Kohli in the middle and the two India superstars will now look to build a partnership and take the score closer to the Aussie total. Dhoni scored a fifty in the opening ODI but received flak for his ‘slow’ batting.

15:11 hrs IST

Rayudu falls, finally!

1st fifty against Australia after 4 innings.

15:02 hrs IST

India moving along nicely

India need 150 in 21 overs and with 8 wickets in hand, one would feel it is the visitors game to lose. Kohli has looked good and he is edging closer to yet another half-century in ODI. While as for Rayudu, he has also started to play well after a jittery start.

14:57 hrs IST

Bowling change

Jhye Richardson comes into the attack and he gives away just three singles from it. 32 balls have been bowled since the last boundary and it shows that the Aussie bowlers are keeping things really tight at the moment. But India don’t need to panic as required rate hasn’t moved out of reach yet.

14:51 hrs IST

Partnership building

Kohli and Rayudu have put on 35 runs off 48 deliveries so far and they have steadied the Indian ship after the fall of Rohit Sharma. The duo are dealing in singles and doubles at the moment with occasional boundary. India need to keep it simple and keep the scoreboard ticking for the time being.

14:45 hrs IST

Rayudu survives again

Ambati Rayudu is trying really hard to get himself dismissed but luck seems to be on his side. First, he hit the ball on the up and it landed in no man’s land at long-on. There, he cut the ball towards point and it almost went straight into the hands of the fielder. Close shave on two occasions for the India number 4.

14:39 hrs IST

Edge and boundary

Ambati Rayudu hasn’t looked completely settled since coming on the crease and had there been a fielder, he would have been caught in the slip region after Siddle produced an edge off his bat. The ball runs away for a boundary as Rayudu gets his second four of the innings.

14:33 hrs IST

Good over from Lyon

Nathan Lyon has bowled well in this innings so far. In his latest over, Lyon gives away just three runs to keep thing tight. Overall, in 6 overs, he has given away 24 runs and hasn’t bowled many run-scoring deliveries.

14:28 hrs IST

Stage set for Rayudu

India need 196 runs in 31 overs and the stage is perfectly set for Ambati Rayudu to get some runs under his belt and fire India to victory. There has been a lot of talk regarding the number 4 spot and if Rayudu scores a big one here, he will once again put those talks to rest like he did last year against Windies. Rayudu hits a boundary off Stoinis to get off the mark.

14:21 hrs IST

Crucial wicket for Australia

Against the run of play, Marcus Stoinis has scalped the wicket of Rohit Sharma for 43. In trying to clear the mid wicket boundary, Rohit is caught out in the deep by Peter Handscomb. India have lost their second wicket now.

14:16 hrs IST

Massive six

Rohit Sharma flexes his muscles once again and hits a huge six off Nathan Lyon. Rohit hit the ball on the up and over the long-on boundary for a six. Second maximum of the innings for Rohit as India are getting closer to the 100-run mark. 50-run partnership also comes up between Rohit and Kohli.

14:10 hrs IST

Partnership building

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have put together 40 runs off 50 ball so far. The duo have done well to keep the scoring rate going after the dismissal of Shikhar Dhawan. India need these two to bat for the longest part in the innings if they are to get a positive result in the match.

14:03 hrs IST

13:43 hrs IST

Dhawan departs

Attacking cricket by Dhawan but he has played one stroke too many, Behrendorff strikes. India lose their first wicket after a rapid start. In walks Virat Kohli.

13:30 hrs IST

Dhawan wants to attack Behrendorff

He was dismissed in Sydney, but today he is on the move, is Dhawan. He is willing to throw his hands to anything which is wide and so far, it is proving to be a positive move

13:16 hrs IST

2 boundaries to get India’s chase rolling

Jhye Richardson, man of the match in Sydney, has leaked 2 boundaries in his very first over. A pull and then a guide past point, Rohit gets 2 boundaries

13:12 hrs IST

Maiden to start proceedings

Right in the perfect channel and Rohit, like it is his template, is happy to see off the over without trying to do anything fancy. A maiden to get things rolling for Australia

13:08 hrs IST

Dhawan and Rohit start India’s chase

Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan start India’s chase. The visitors will certainly need a good start from their openers if they are to chase down a total of 298/9.

12:41 hrs IST

Emphatic end

Nathan Lyon with 10 runs in the final three balls. One flick overt short fine leg and then a thwack over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. Australia end with 298, Bhuvneshwar ends with 4/48. Shaun Marsh finished with 131 and Maxwell biffed the bowling for an entertaining 48 in 37 balls

12:34 hrs IST

12:25 hrs IST

Maxwell departs

Slow ball, on the off stump, Maxwell wanted to biff it away, finds long off. And then Shaun MArsh tries to do the same, finds Jadeja at long off again

12:20 hrs IST

Siraj bleeding runs

Debut, but not a very memorable day for Siraj. He was put under pressure at the beginning of his spell and it has only gone downhill from there. Even catches were dropped off his bowling. 10 overs for 76 runs and no wicket to show for his efforts

12:07 hrs IST

Clean hitting

Both Maxwell and Marsh are on the charge, clean hitting and the Indian bowlers have been put under the pump. Australia are sprinting along and that 300 should be breached if these two keep galloping along at this pace

12:02 hrs IST

Nothing going right for Siraj

He has been under the pump all day and now when the umpire adjudged Maxwell out, it was overturned by the third umpire. He then has been taken for a couple of boundaries to end the over. Tough debut for the fast bowler

11:54 hrs IST

Expensive day for Kuldeep

The young spinner gave away 66 runs in 10 overs, without any wicket. 15 runs came off his final over. Australians are one the attack now

11:46 hrs IST

100 for Shaun Marsh

· 7th ODI century, 3rd at home, 2nd against India and 1st at Adelaide for Shaun Marsh.

· 2nd century for Marsh in 3 innings.

· 1st century against India after 6 innings.

o His last century against India came in 2009 at Hyderabad

11:43 hrs IST

100 for Marsh

7th ODI hundred for Shaun Marsh. It has been a brilliant innings, he has been assured and aggressive at the same time. Now, he will break free and holds the key to Australia’s final score

11:26 hrs IST

Stoinis dismissed

He was looking to break free, not a very short ball, he wanted to go for the pull, under edge, and the ball goes through to MS Dhoni. He had already hit two boundaries in that over and this stroke could have been avoided, but he has to drag himself back to the pavilion. Another timely break for India

10:58 hrs IST

Marsh and Stoinis build

Indian spinners have been tight, but Marsh has been positive against them. Stoinis has to rotate the strike and with Maxwell still to come, Australia should look to post a score in excess of 300

10:48 hrs IST

The man Dhoni doing what he does best

Full ball angled away, Handscomb wanted to sweep it away, misses it and drags his foot outside, enough time for Dhoni to collect the ball and whip the bails off. Australia lose another one, India keep chipping away at the wickets

10:45 hrs IST

Siraj is feeling the heat

Start of another spell, and the story continues for Siraj. He keeps bowling it short, Marsh keeps helping himself to boundaries. Not a very good beginning for the young man.

10:37 hrs IST

Australia have been attacking today

10:31 hrs IST

Marsh gets to his 50

Very confident and very positive innings by Shaun Marsh. He has looked decisive from the word go and his innings has kept Australia afloat here. Needs to get a big one

10:22 hrs IST

Marsh rocking along

Decisive footwork and good hands against spin, Shaun Marsh is looking the best batsman out there. He has to bat long and take this deep into the innings. Peter Handscomb looked in good form in Sydney and he has started well today

10:10 hrs IST

Jadeja’s rocket arm accounts for Khawaja

Tapped to point, Khawaja takes off, so does Jadeja. He collects the ball, hurls a rocket throw and smashes the stumps at the non-striker’s end. Khawaja has not made it, India get their 3rd, just when Australia were motoring ahead

10:01 hrs IST

Tough introduction to the ODIs

Siraj has been all over the shop. He is banging the ball in, the batsmen are filling their boots without any hassles. 34 runs in 4 overs is not the ideal start for the young man

9:52 hrs IST

Not very good from Siraj

Nerves, he is trying to bash the ball into the pitch, but not getting enough bounce. Easy pickings for Khawaja and Marsh at the moment. Rohit Sharma asking the bowler to focus on hitting the right lines and lengths

9:43 hrs IST

Better over

After an untidy first over, Siraj goes back over the wicket and bowls a tidy over. This is going to be a big phase in this game. Marsh, Khawaja hold the key for Australia. Kuldeep Yadav is introduced into the attack

9:31 hrs IST

Siraj into the attack

On his debut, young Mohammed Siraj has the ball in his hands. He has been impressive in India’s domestic circuit, the biggest test begins. Not a good start, first three balls have drifted down the leg side, easy pickings for Usman Khawaja

9:24 hrs IST

Carey dismissed

Short ball, angled across Alex Carey who was in no position to play the hook stroke. He went for the stoke nevertheless and the ball goes right up. Shikhar Dhawan settles down under it and takes the catch easily catch at short mid-wicket. After a sedate start, Australia jolted twice

9:19 hrs IST

Knocked him over

Great bowling, full ball from Bhuvi, the ball was shaping back in, Finch wanted to slog it, the ball takes the inside edge and smashes the stumps. The Australian captain throws his head back in disdain, he has drag himself off the field. India’s persistence pays

9:17 hrs IST

Watchful start

The Indian bowlers have tried to ball straight and target the stumps of both the batsmen and so far, the Australian have been watchful in their approach. Aaron Finch, who has struggled in this series, looks to get settled before opening his shoulders

8:58 hrs IST

Hint of swing

There is a hint of swing on offer here, Shami is getting the ball to move around just a touch. India need to utilise this new ball and get a few early scalps.

8:49 hrs IST

Ready to roll

Alex Carey will take strike, Bhuvneshwar with the new ball. India need early wickets, the pitch is flat, the sun is beating down. Let’s go!

8:19 hrs IST

An absolute road?

8:09 hrs IST

Support is building up

8:05 hrs IST

Bhuvi needs to step up

“I was trying everything to be in rhythm. In the nets, I wasn’t planning or preparing to bowl in the ODIs. I was preparing like I have to play in any of the Tests. I was preparing in that manner. There wasn’t anything specific that I could do. “But it was just normal bowling and increasing the number of overs. If I was bowling 4 overs (to start with), then go to 6, then 8, then 10. The key thing for me is to be niggle-free and be in bowling rhythm,” the UP seamer said.

The weather is scorching hot
