Dhoni, Pandya scintillating knocks help India to 281/7 vs Australia

Australia's last ODI series in India was in 2013 and they lost the high scoring tournament 3-2

Coulter-Nile is playing his first global match since June past year having battled a series of serious injuries.

When Rohit Sharma fell for 28 in the one-day global against Australia, Team India were in dire straits. Rahane managed only five.

For Australia, Nathan Coulter-Nile picked three wickets. The ball nestled perfectly in his right hand and the sell-out crowd at Chepauk Stadium was silenced as the superstar batsman departed for a duck.

Pandya (83 from 66 balls; 4*5, 6*5) and Dhoni (79 from 88; 4*4, 6*2) forged an 118-run sixth wicket stand to help India recover from a precarious 87/5 after India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat.

For the tourists, opener Hilton Cartwright would make his debut.

His wild swing at a ball wide outside the off stump found the edge and sailed into Matthew Wade's gloves. His innings was filled with five fours and five sixes.

The Australian feilders, along with captain Steve Smith, looked helpless when Pandya shifted gears, and started to play big shots.

However, the fans got the opportunity on Sunday and they made the most of it.

"So if the wickets are the same you need someone to go on and make a really big score".

It was an interesting battle between Australia leggie Adam Zampa and Pandya.
