However, Warner's well-crafted 124 - in what was his 100th one-day global - helped the tourists set a victory target of 335, which India looked capable of reaching after Rohit Sharma hit a rapid 65 of just 55 balls before Australia picked up late key wickets. "I think Australia's bowling was quite good".

Australia witnessed another torrid time when captain Steven Smith (3) too was accounted for by Yadav, with the visitors at 236/3 in 37.1 overs. In reply, the hosts managed to get 313 for the loss of eight wickets, with Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma and Kedar Jadhav scoring half-centuries respectively.

The "run machine" Virat Kohli who is popularly known for breaking records has now smashed one more record to become the fastest ODI skipper to score 2000 runs.

Travis Head (29) and Peter Handscomb then added 63 runs for the fourth wicket, making sure Australia did not lose momentum like in the previous game. But, Team India's stay at the top of the table was a short one. But it was the pace troika of Pat Cummins, Kane Richardson and Nathan Coulter-Nile, who proved to be the game changers for Australia.

Right-armer Yadav picked up both of them later but their partnership allowed Australia to finish strongly. We got a good opening partnership but we needed one big partnership after that as well. "That can happen. People have off days", he said. After Warner's dismissal, Finch missed out on his hundred, caught at mid-on off Umesh Yadav (4-71) five balls later. "Unless you play the flawless game it's tough to win", Richardson said.

Smith said "Nice to get a win in". The openers Warner and Finch shared mammoth 231-run stand for the first wicket. The clouds, which threatened to open up through the day, did so in the 42nd over of India's innings and halted play for 19 minutes with India two runs behind the DLS par score of 253. It's the flexibility and the way we bat at the moment, we are not predictable.

Warner was named Man of the Match, and said: "Feels fantastic". Winning this game tonight has put a great smile on our face. But as we know it's quite tough over here. A few misdemeanours back in the day, so didn't get my chance.
