Australia threatened to total over 300 for most of their innings as Hussey 73 in 54 balls built on a solid foundation where the top order of Ponting 74 Paine 50 and White 51 all made fifities.

India pulled it back a fraction in the second half thru good bowling from the spinners and Ishant Sharma as the visitors finished on 292.

Harbhajan Singh 49 in 31 balls and Praveen Kumar 40 not out in 32 balls threatened to snatch victory for India with a record 8th wicket stand of 84 runs but Australia held on for a thrilling 4 run win as 9 were needed from the last over.
