Glenn Maxwell cracked a superlative unbeaten century to help Australia register their maiden T20 series victory over India with a win in the second and final T20I.
Maxwell's scintillating 113 off 55 balls overshadowed Virat Kohli's 38-ball 72 which helped India post a competitive 190/4 in 20 overs.
Chasing 191 for victory, Maxwell smashed as many as 9 sixes and 7 fours on way to his third century in the shortest format as the visitors posted 194/3 to win by seven wickets with two balls to spare.
India rode on Kohli's brilliance and Mahendra Singh Dhoni's 23-ball 40 with the pair adding a 100-run stand for the fourth wicket.
Opener D'Arcy Short (40) and Maxwell shared a 73-run stand off 43 balls to keep their chances alive before the former fell in the 12th over.
