India vs Australia Live: Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave much-needed wickets to the Indian team at crucial moments which turned out to be game-changing. Steve Smith and Marcus Stoinis were dismissed by Bhuvneshwar in one over which tilted the match in India’s favour. On Australia’s part, Alex Carrey played well as he tried his best to help Australia win the game but it was too little too late for the Australians. Steve Smith and David Warner had played well in the beginning but the score turned out to be a big one for the Australians.

Earlier, Indian captain Virat Kohli (82) and opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan (117) were the stars with the bat as India managed to post 352 runs on the board against a good Australian bowling lineup.
