India, chasing 331 for a win, got off to a flying start courtesy half-centuries from openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma but wickets of the the southpaw and Virat Kohli threatened to derail India's chase. Rohit fell on 99 but Manish Pandey smashed an unbeaten ton to give India a memorable six wicket win that helps them avoid a whitewash. 

David Warner's 122 off 113 balls and Mitchell Marsh's unbeaten century bailed out the hosts from a precarious position to take them to 330-7. India openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan got the visitors off to a flying start but Australia fought back after removing Dhawan and getting Virat Kohli out cheaply. It was heartbreak for Rohit as he was dismissed on 99 but only after a solid partnership with Manish Pandey. Pandey then struck a brilliant unbeaten 104 off 81 balls to guide India home and help them retain the number two ranking.
