Riding on the 39th century from the skipper and old warhorse finisher MS Dhoni’s unbeaten 55, India registered the second highest successful run-chase at the Adelaide Oval.
Chasing a tricky target of 299, Kohli held the Indian run-chase together from one end. He along with MS Dhoni added 82 runs for the fourth wicket, taking India closer to the target. Towards the end, Dhoni (55) along with Karthik (25) took India across the line with four balls to spare. The Australian bowlers had a poor outing as none of them were able to make any real impact. Jason Behrendorff, Jhye Richardson, Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell managed a wicket apiece. Virat was the Player of the Match for his terrific knock.
