India (234/3) beat Australia (230) by 7 wickets to win 1st ever bilateral ODI series in Australia. The match only went as long as it did because that’s how MS Dhoni likes to play, but it could have been over much earlier if he’d had half a mind. Dhoni now averages 103.07 in winning run chases. Not out 46 times out of 73 in which he’s batted. He’s literally been there at the end two thirds of the time.
Another 87 not out tonight, and could have gunned for a hundred if he’d wanted to attack more earlier, but it’s not his way. But it’s not just about the batting. Yuzvendra Chahal sat on the bench for the entire tour to date, got called up for the very last match, and promptly took 6-42 from his 10 overs. He got rid of each set middle-order batsman and was the reason Australia was restricted to 230.
