MS Dhoni was bowled by Mitchell Starc moments after completing the fifty-run partnership with Rohit Sharma, departing on a score of 19 from 31 balls, as India lost their fifth wicket with 237 runs on the board. Sharma was batting on a score of 127 from 131 balls on the other end, as India looked likely to set a target within the range of 300 for Australia in the second game of the triangular series featuring England aside from the two aforementioned teams. Starc took his third wicket of the innings as a result.

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.
