The second one-day global between India and Australia became even more memorable for Ravindra Jadeja as he produced a moment of excellence in the field to bring back the hosts in the match.

They needed 11 from the final over but Vijay Shankar took the last two wickets including Marcus Stoinis for 52.

Shankar said he would not over-react after taking match-winning wickets but is glad that he could help the tea win. Kohoi's 116 off 120 balls, including 10 boundaries, propped up India's par total of 250 all out in the 49th over. India now have a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

"We might get these low-scoring games in the World Cup as well".

Coming in to bat after Rohit Sharma was dismissed in the very first over, Kohli batted nearly till the end, scoring 116 runs off 120 balls with 10 boundaries studding his patient innings.

"It's important to look ugly at times, and come through and win", Kohli said.

Kohli came in after Cummins sent back opener Rohit Sharma (0) in the very first over.

It was Stoinis who had kept the visitors in hunt as he resisted the unrelenting Indian attack with aplomb and added 47-runs for the sixth wicket with Alex Carey (22). An out-of-form Shikhar Dhawan scored 21, but Glenn Maxwell trapped him in front.

Shankar was unlucky to be run out when Zampa deflected a straight drive off Kohli's blade to the stumps. Pat Cummins was the chief destructor for Australia with four wickets under his belt while conceding only 29 runs in nine overs.

Zampa struck again soon after, dismissing Kedar Jadhav (11) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (0) off successive balls to stun the home crowd into silence.

Skipper Virat Kohli, who was left amused, tried to get hold of the fan and stop him from going after Dhoni, but the fan somehow managed to continue his chase as the other players enjoyed Dhoni's playful antics.

Carey became Yadav's third victim while Nathan Coulter-Nile and Pat Cummins were out during the 46th over, a cracker from Jasprit Bumrah that cost just one run and ended with Stoinis turning down a single to keep strike. Ravindra Jadeja scored 21, but India couldn't play out the 50 overs.
