Behrendorff trapped Shikhar Dhawan lbw for a golden duck then Richardson, who finished with man-of-the-match figures of 4-26, removed Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu in the space of three balls to make the target look an imposing one.

Rohit Sharma peeled off his 22nd ODI century, forming a 137-run stand with Dhoni that was comfortably the highest partnership of the game.

Speaking after the defeat, Sharma suggested former India skipper Dhoni should be promoted up the batting order.

"I personally always feel that Dhoni batting at No.4 will be ideal for the team", he said. "Rayudu has done really well now at No. 4, so it totally depends what the captain and coach thinks about it".

The partnership was ended when Dhoni was given out lbw off Jason Behrendorff in a decision that would have been overturned by a review had India not already used their only referral. "Personally asking, I would be happy if Dhoni bats at four", Rohit, who scored 133 off 129 deliveries, said at the post-match conference. The fact that they were up against an Australian batting lineup which does not have too many big hitters as the middle order includes Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh and Peter handscomb saw them restrict the score to under 300 otherwise this set of bowlers can come into a lot of trouble against a batting lineup that is proactive.

But Australia took 80 runs off the final seven overs as Stoinis and Handscomb delivered what proved to be a winning score.

Of course, I've seen Andy struggling you know with his hip and with his fitness for quite some time now. "I think especially as an athlete, you're even more aware of it".

"We're not very pleased with the way we played", Kohli said in the presentation.

"These are the games that will teach you a lot".

"It's always tricky", Sharma said. When you get teams three down [early], that's what you aim for.

"I think I have become mentally stronger now and I have full confidence that I can finish close matches". But it is important to use the DRS well and we've spoken a lot about it. It got to a stage that if we didn't get a breakthrough, the game would have turned pretty quickly.

"It is a learning for us. when we go to Adelaide we might have a chat about how we go about that".
