Starc intent was right trying to cramp off Dhoni for space by ejecting an angling delivery at 143kmph into the pads but MS Dhoni was prepared up to the task using the angle to a good effect and smashing mammoth six over the deep square leg.
The match was 80% decided when India cemented 352 runs on board. Shikhar Dhawan led the charge with a century. Virat Kohli also does a blazing 82 run and an 81 run partnership with Hardik Pandya for a 3rd wicket partnership. The Pair pummel Aussies heavily.
Dhawan scored a brilliant 117 off 109 balls and give India a 1st wicket 127 run partnership with the Rohit Sharma(57) setting the tone of the match.
