Australia chased down India's total of 303 for nine with four wickets in hand to take a 2-1 lead in the seven-match One-Day International (ODI) series at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium at Mohali on Saturday.
A sensational knock of 64 from 29 balls by James Faulkner towards the end of the innings helped Australia. Indian pacer Ishant Sharma will not forget Faulkner for quite a while as it his over (48th) which put the match in Australia's pot as the latter hammered 30 runs, including four sixes and one boundary, to put the match in Australia's kitty.
Earlier, India skipper MS Dhoni took his side out from the depths with a swashbuckling unbeaten 139 off 121 balls. The home side, reeling at 76 for four and then at 154 for six, managed to reach 303 for nine because of Dhoni's master class innings.
