Steven Smith was out for 47, falling to Mohammed Shami, after going past 1,000 One-Day International (ODI) runs in the second ODI between India and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Smith followed up his tremendous form in Test cricket by continuing from where he left off against India. He was dismissed for 37 in the first ODI against England, but came back well against India. Smith came in to bat at No. 4 after the dismissal of Shane Watson, and started positively.

Earlier, MS Dhoni had won the toss and elected to bat first. The only change in the Australian team was that Gurinder Sandhu has walked in place of Xavier Doherty. Sandhu is the first man of Indian origin to play for Australia. India did not field Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja. Akshar Patel is in there for Jadeja. Rohit Sharma scored 138 as India put up 267 for eight. Mitchell Starc was the pick of the bowlers with six for 43.
