Playing in just second one-day international, Ashton Turner took an experienced Indian bowling attack to the cleaners tonking six huge sixes and five boundaries during his unbeaten 84 that came in just 43 deliveries to seal a record four-wicket win for Australia against the hosts in the fourth ODI at Mohali on Sunday.

The partnership of 86 off 39 balls between Turner and Alex Carey turned out to be the turning point after Peter Handscomb and Usman Khawaja had set the platform with a 192-run third-wicket stand.

Turner, who replaced the injured Marcus Stoinis, helped Australia chased down the mammoth 359-run target with 13 balls to spare in their highest ever run chase.

“I’m lost for words. I turned up to the ground today. Marcus Stoinis was doing his fitness test. He had a broken thumb, I thought he would play today, and I would be carrying drinks. But I had to transition my mind from not playing to playing. I had a lot of confidence. I was ready to go if given a chance. It’s not every day that we get to play. I thought India played really well and it was a great game of cricket,” Turner, who won the Man of the Match award, said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

Turner, who earned three reprieves – a DRS going in his favour among them – said that he didn’t nick the ball after the call that came against him when he was on 41 in the 44th over.

Rishabh Pant appealed for a caught behind off Yuzvendra Chahal and forced his skipper to go for a review which India went on to do. The snickometer showed a spike as the ball passed the bat, but it had shown spikes even before the the ball reached the batsman as well. The third umpire Joel Wilson decided that there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn the on-field decision.

“Batting is lot of fun, there were a few close calls and I know that I didn’t nick that one that went upstairs. Very fortunate,” he said. (ALSO READ: Kohli unhappy with DRS decision against Ashton Turner)

Turner heaped praise on former Australia batsman Matthew Hayden for being his batting mentor. “Haydos has been great to me. I was privileged to get my cap from him in Hyderabad. He’s spent a lot of time with me in the nets. He’s a brilliant player of spin bowling and he’s a legend. Someone I always looked up to. It’s nice to hear nice things from him. I try my best, one of those things over here,” he said.
