Opener Usman Khawaja's maiden one-day global century and incisive bowling helped Australia outplay India by 32 runs to stay alive in the five-match series on Friday.

Kohli, who is second on the list of ODI centuries behind Sachin Tendulkar, now has 5 hundreds against Australia at home in 18 ODIs.

Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson rocked India's chase early, reducing them to 27-3 in the seventh over leaving Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni with a mountain to climb. To get 300 on that wicket was really good batting performance. "It was nice and especially in these conditions", Finch said after the win. "I really thought we had a chance with the difference being 20 between balls and runs".

"Usman played a fantastic knock and Zamps bowled well". In the end, India fell short of 32 runs, scoring 281/10 in 48.2 overs.

Looking back at his innings, Kohli said, "In terms of hitting the ball, it was one of my finest hundreds". The right-hander scored 47 runs off 31 balls and during his stay he slammed three fours and as many sixes. The talisman batsman scored 16 fours and one six for his knock of 123 runs off just 95 balls. Capitalising on the platform built by the duo Australia posted 313/5 in their respective 50 overs.

The ferry was carrying 121 passengers and four crew members. "People around me were moaning [in pain]". Coast guard officials said the exact cause of the accident is now under investigation.

The decision to rest Dhoni may signal the end of his worldwide career in his home country, with the 37-year-old still to make an announcement on his future after the May 30-July 14 World Cup in England and Wales. Kohli and MS Dhoni then stitched together a 59-run partnership to steady the hosts.

Vijay Shankar also made a useful 32 but the ever-increasing run rate got to the Indian chase. I was very disappointed when I got out.

It also allows Pant the opportunity to make a late push for inclusion at the tournament, with captain Virat Kohli believing the final two games in Mohali and New Dehli the flawless opportunities for players to prove themselves. "Australia played better on the day". Adam bowled well and they won the game. "A little hiccup in the middle but we will re-group and come back stronger". We will have a few changes in the next couple of games.

Bumrah has played the current series against Australia and looks set to get a fresh new-ball partner in Mohali Sunday with Bhuvneshwar Kumar likely to come in for Mohammed Shami, who was hit in the leg on Friday by a shot from Aaron Finch.
