All rounder Hardik Pandya starred with the bat and ball to help India defeat Australia by 26 runs in the rain-hit opening match of the 5 ODI series.
After stumbling to 87-5, India were rescued by Pandya's career-best 83 and Dhoni's 79. India posted a competitive 281/7 after a late blitz.
Australia were set a revised target of 164 off 21 overs due to rain. Spinners Kuldeep Yadav (2/33) and Yuzvendra Chahal (3/30) then ran through Australia, after Glenn Maxwell made a quick-fire 39 off 18 balls.
