India vs Australia 2013: India beat Australia by 9 wickets to register 2nd successful run chase in ODIs



India chase down 359 to enter record books! This is the second highest successful run chase in ODIs.

Team India notched up the mammoth total of 359 runs at the loss of just one wicket and with 39 balls to spare against Australia.

Credit to all the batsmen, with a special mention for Rohit Sharma who finished unbeaten on 141 off just 123 deliveries. Virat Kohli went berserk with his 52-ball century, the fastest by an Indian in ODIs. It also happens to be his 16th ODI for Kohli. India have scaled down what looked like an impossible mountain. A lot of credit is also due to Shikhar Dhawan who scored 95. Dhawan was dismissed 5 runs short of his ton, ending a 172-run 1st wicket stand.

Rohih hits his 3rd hundred, and this is the 1st against Australia, 1st at home as well. While Kohli got hits ton in just 52 balls, and was to go on to break Sehwag's record for the fastest ton by an Indian batsman as India completed a stunning chase.

India have leveled the ODI series 1-1 in thumping style. Hard luck for Bailey and Co. who were completely blown away in the second half of the game. The next match scheduled to be held at Mohali.
