MS Dhoni plays hide and seek with his fan in Nagpur

Australia needed 11 runs off the last over with two wickets left, and lost to India by eight runs in the second one-day cricket global today.

Stoinis, on strike and with 11 runs required when the final over started, looked to attack medium-pacer Shankar's first delivery but was instead was trapped lbw.

Shankar said he would not over-react after taking match-winning wickets but is glad that he could help the tea win.

This was his 40th in the ODI cricket and he needs just 10 more centuries to break the Sachin Tendulkar's great record.

Kohli (116 off 120) batted superbly on a scorching day as he completed a seventh ODI ton against Australia, but India were bowled out for 250 as Pat Cummins bagged 4-29 from nine overs.

Australia was all out for 242 in 49.3 overs, and India led the five-match series 2-0.

"I've said previously also that I never think about the selection or World Cup thing because it's a long way off from now".

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

Shankar was promoted up the order and came up with a fluent 46 off 41 balls, hitting five fours and a six.

The fall of Rohit's wicket brought Kohli.

Earlier, Kohli steadily build the Indian innings even as he saw the fall of colleagues Shikhar Dhawan (21) and Ambati Rayudu (18).

The duo added 81 runs before Shankar was unluckily run-out at the non-striker's end. Zampa struck twice more to remove Kedar Jadhav on 11 and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, caught at slip for a first-ball duck, as India slipped to 171-6 in the 33rd over.

There were positive signs for coach Justin Langer, who should take some solace from the fact that some 248 of India's 250 runs were scored when Kohli was at the crease.

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.

Jasprit Bumrah put the pressure back on Australia when he dismissed Nathan Coulter-Nile and Cummins cheaply in the space of three balls in the 46th, leaving the visitors' hopes pinned on Stoinis.
