Lofted over the tight infield, and they are the runs to secure the match and series for India!They made that run chase look a lot harder than it needed to be. Credit has to go to Australia for the way they bowled and make the game so close at the end. MS Dhoni was the calming influence at the crease, picking certain bowlers to attack, and blocking out the others. Kedar Jadhav played a blinder at the other end as well. A special mention to Yuzvendra Chahal for his six wicket haul that set up the game for the visitors. A marvellous series of ODI cricket, but it is India that edge it 2-1.
