India defeated Australia in 1st ODI by 6 wickets to lead series 1-0

MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav shared a mammoth unbeatable 141 runs partnership

Calm, cool Dhoni and street smart Jadhav done it again for India in a crucial run chase. Australia opted to bat and posted 236 for 7 in a bouncy Hyderabad pitch. It looks like under par total on a good batting surface of Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. However, Australian bowlers made it tough for India in a small run chase. Shikhar Dhawan poor form continued as he got out for a golden duck, Virat Kohli (44), and Rohit Sharma (37) through the start which is very rare in a run chase. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni (59*) and Kedar Jadhav (81*) stand out for India to finish off a memorable win against Australia in a series opener.

Brief score:

AUS 236/7 (50.0 Ovs)

IND 240/4 (48.2 Ovs)

Note: Kedar Jadhav adjudged Player of the Match
