MS Dhoni’s unbeaten 87 helped India beat Australia by 7 wickets in third ODI at Melbourne.

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal's heroics with the ball were complemented well by former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's third consecutive half-century as he anchored India's run chase to beat Australia by 7 wickets in the third ODI, and clinch their first ever bilateral series win in Australia.

At the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Friday, Australia paid the price for dropping the dangerous Dhoni on nought, as the veteran stumper, who has recently been at the receiving end of critics, came up with another defiant and calm half-century to guide the Indians home in style.

Promoted to No.4, Dhoni first raised a strong 54-run third wicket stand with skipper Virat Kohli (46) and thereafter took India home with an unbeaten 121-run stand with Kedar Jadhav (61 not out).

Dhoni's unbeaten knock of 87 came off 114 balls and was studded with six hits to the fence.

India won the match with 4 balls to spare and fans took to Twitter to celebrate the historic series win.
