MS Dhoni pulled off a tight finish for India just like old times after captain Virat Kohli laid the foundation for a six-wicket win against Australia with his 39th ODI hundred.
Man of the match Kohli was dismissed in the 44th over after making 104 off 112 balls with five fours and two sixes.
MS Dhoni, who has been coping a lot of criticism for his waning finishing skills, turned back the clock and took India past the finish line with a final over six.
India got off to a frantic start with Shikhar Dhawan hitting five boundaries in his 28-ball 32 runs. He put on 47 runs for the opening wicket with Rohit Sharma (43).
Earlier, Shaun Marsh scored his seventh ODI hundred to take Australia to a challenging total.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-45) and Mohammed Shami (3-58) exerted themselves on proceedings with the new ball, and didn’t let the Australian openers get away quickly.
