Massive is the operative word here. Massive batting collapse.
India were cruising at 277/2 at one stage of the match with centurions Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan at the crease but now they have been bowled out for 323.
A 25-run defeat to go 4-0 down in the 5-match ODI series.
Australia: 348/8 (Aaron Finch 107, David Warner 93, Steven Smith 51; Ishant Sharma 4/77).
India: 323 (Virat Kohli 106, Shikhar Dhawan 126; Kane Richardson 5/68).
India Nine Down
Ravindra Jadeja is dropped off back-to-back deliveries - but just when you start hoping for a turnaround - Umesh Yadav gives them one they can catch.
Out off Marsh. Caught Bailey for 2.
Seaming All-rounder Out!
Rishi Dhawan, India’s newest recruit for that “seaming all-rounder’s” spot, is also out.
8 balls and 9 runs is all about he manages to disturb the scorecard. Bhuvneshwar Kumar doesn’t last much longer. Out for 2.
India: 311/8 after 45.3 overs
India Staring Down the Barrel
Ajinkya Rahane sticks around for just three balls as skipper Steve Smith catches him in the slips off a Richardson delivery.
Out for 2. India: 294/6. Rishi Dhawan new man in. India batting deep here.
