Dhoni, Pandya flatten Aussies: 1st ODI (Chennai)

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.

India 281 for 7 in 50 overs (Pandya 83, Dhoni 79, Coulter-Nile 3-44) beat Australia 137 for 9 in 21 overs (Maxwell 39, Chahal 3-30, Pandya 2-28) by 26 runs (DLS method).
