Asked to bat first, India displayed a sensational batting performance despite losing early wickets. KL Rahul (55) and Suryakumar Yadav (46) took Australian bowlers to the cleaners. Before Hardik Pandya provided a brutal finish to the innings with his staggering unbeaten knock of 71 runs that helped India post a total of 208 runs on the board.

India however, came back in the game with few wickets in the middle but Matthew Wade played a breathtaking innings of unbeaten 45 runs to take his side home.
