Australia skipper George Bailey said the match-winning whirlwind knock from comeback man Yuvraj Singh proved to be the turning point of the high-scoring one-off Twenty20 International against India.

"Yuvraj's innings was fantastic. He batted beautifully. Cleared the fence when he had to. It made it really difficult for us, so that was probably the turning point," Bailey said at the post-match conference.

Having posted a massive 202-run target, Australia were in total control at one stage with Indian scorecard reading 80 for three in the ninth over. But flamboyant Yuvraj changed the scenario completely, smashing an unbeaten 35-ball 77, laced with eight fours and five sixes to steer the hosts to a six-wicket victory.
