India vs Australia Ind vs Aus Highlights: A superb century from Shikhar Dhawan aided by disciplined show by the bowlers guided India to an emphatic 36-run victory over defending champions Australia in the World Cup match at The Oval on Sunday. Chasing a massive 353, Australia were bowled out for 316 as India registered their second successive win in the tournament. For Australia, Steve Smith (69), David Warner (56) and Alex Carey (53) slammed half centuries, but couldn’t save their side from tasting the first defeat of the tournament. Among the Indian bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah finished with 3/60 while Bhuvneshwar Kumar ended up with 3/50. Yuzvendra Chahal also dismissed two Australia batsmen.
Earlier, Dhawan found his lost form at the right time and scored 117 off 109 balls to power India to 352/5 after skipper Virat Kohli opted to bat. Dhawan was well supported by Kohli who missed out on his century but scored a valuable 82 off 77 balls. Rohit Sharma also chipped in with a crucial 57 while Hardik Pandya (48 off 27)and MS Dhoni (14-ball-27) starred with their late blitz.

World Cup 2019, India vs Australia Highlights
Dhawan is the Player of the Match
"Best thing is that everybody is performing in the team," says Shikhar Dhawan.
India win by 36 runs
India beat Australia by 36 runs. Australia are all out for 316 in exactly 50 overs. Zampa went out in the last ball of the day.
Bhuvneshwar (3/50), Bumrah (3/61), Chahal (2/62) star with the ball.
Australia's 10-match winning streak is ended by India.
Australia nine down
RUN OUT. Starc is gone coming back for a second run. Australia 313/9 with five balls to come. One has to wonder, if only Carey had someone stick with him till the end. Like Stoinis, Maxwell or even one of the top three.
What a 49th over from Bumrah
0,0,0,2lb,0,1 - Just one run off the bat in the 49th over. Just proof of what a special bowler like Bumrah can do.
This is beyond Australia's reach now, even mathematically. 40 runs the difference between the two teams with one over left.
Two overs left
Nine runs come off the 48th over. "Not good enough," is Sourav Ganguly's diagnosis. Australia need 44 runs in the last two overs. Alex Carey is on 51* off 26 balls. Can he do the impossible?
Possibly not, Bumrah starts off the 49th over with three dot balls.
50 for Carey
He's brought that up in 25 balls. That's the fastest ever fifty by an Australian in a World Cup. That's also the fastest fifty of this World Cup. His team need 48 runs in the last 15 balls.

Sadly too little too late for his Australia side?

Australia lose their 8th wicket
WICKET! Bumrah gets his third wicket. Cummins out for 8. MS Dhoni has no trouble holding on to that catch. Wild swing of the bat and a thick outside edge. Carey in danger of running out of partners.
AUS 300/8 in 47 ovs
Carey carries on run blitz
Carey is dealing with everything the Indian bowlers are throwing at him with ease. Has raced to 43 off 21 balls. On line to racking up the fastest fifty of this World Cup. What Australia will be more concerned about is whether he can inspire a famous victory today? Australia need 62 runs off 25 balls.
India get another wicket. Coulter-Nile, who has struggled to find the touch he had against West Indies, holes out in the deep in an attempt to break free. Kohli the catcher in the deep. Australia lose their 7th wicket. 70 more needed off 31.

Batsmens' day out
This is the first time in the history of ODI cricket that the top 5 of both teams have all reached 25. This is the first time this has happened in 4155 matches.
Carey on 30 runs from 13 balls
Kuldeep fails to cut off a boundary at long on. Kohli not happy, indicates Kuldeep was standing too square to begin with. Carey's score moves along in lightning speed. 75 runs needed in the last 6 overs. This is not beyond Australia. India still have the edge in this contest, but this is not beyond Australia at all.
Alex Carey gets a move on
Carey hits Chahal for a four and a six in the 42nd over. Coulter-Nile yet to get into his groove today. Aus need 82 runs from 39 balls. Never say never, especially when the chasing team bats so deep.
Aus need 97 runs from 47 balls
Balls running out for Australia. Alex Carey and Nathan Coulter Nile will be under pressure. Can they come up with a twist in the tail in this match?
CATCH! Super sub Ravindra Jadeja runs in from the deep to grab that! Maxwell is out for 28. Flurry of wickets falling now and the game seems to be slipping out of Australia's reach now. AUS 244/6 in 40.4 ovs
Bhuvi has turned the match on its head
That one over has turned the match on its head. Australia were looking to get into the last 10 overs with two well-set batsmen chasing down a score around 100. Now though, they're up against it. Alex Carey is the new man in. They need 113 runs in 58 balls.
Bhuvi gets Stoinis out in the same over as well. Stoinis goes for a duck. Maxwell now in danger of running out of partners.
India take a review. Smith is out!
Bhuvi raps Smith on the pad and India take the review. And it's Out. HUGE WICKET!
The 40th over has been a much better one from India's perspective. Bhuvi deciding to follow a sixth stump line. Working much better for him.
Bhuvi gets the big wicket of Steve Smith. Gone for 69.— BCCI (@BCCI) June 9, 2019

Maxwell smashes Bumrah for four as well
Glenn Maxwell is giving Indian fans some nervy moments right now. Is on 20 off 8 balls. Can Bumrah pull out a trick out of his bottomless bag now? The last 4.2 overs have seen 47 runs being scored.
Can Maxwell explode for Australia?
Across his career Glenn Maxwell scores at 8.55 runs per over in the last 15 overs of the innings. Has started off brilliantly today. Already two boundaries in his short 3-ball innings so far.
Bumraaaah! Bowled Him!
BOWLED HIM! Bumrah breaks Usman Khawaja's stumps! Khawaja shuffled across the stumps, in an attempt to lift the ball behind the keeper. Only manages to hit the ball onto his stumps. Bumrah was expected to have an impact and it's exactly what he does! Maxwell comes in to join Smith. Hits a four in his first ball. It's all happening here!
200 up for Australia
Khawaja and Smith have added 68 runs for this partnership. They are starting to get a move on in this chase. And on cue, India bring back Jasprit Bumrah! This is going to be tasty!
Six, four for Khawaja
Khawaja sweeps against the turn of Kuldeep and smashes a six. Similar kind of shot offered to the next ball as well. This one goes over the ropes on the bounce. How can Kuldeep react to this? This is exactly what Australia want from these two.
India's bowling options
Another short ball from Hardik pulled away for four by Khawaja. That's the end of the 9th over from him today. And India are done with their fifth bowling option. Bumrah has SIX more overs left right now. Sure to see him back in action soon.
50 for Smith
50 for Steve Smith! His second consecutive 50 in this World Cup. Scored 73 vs West Indies in Australia's last match. Australia need him to go into CARNAGE MODE from here on.

Khawaja starting to break free
India were putting on the pressure on Khawaja, but the left-hander is bringing out all his sweeps and reverse sweeps against the spinners. Has hit two fours now. Moves into his 20s. Steve Smith, at the other end, is nearing his half century.
Dhoni does brilliantly to collect the ball from the ground and flick it to the stumps but Smith does very well to ground his bat in the crease in time as well. Great cricket all around.
Required run rate touches 10 for the first time
So, Australia need 195 runs from 117 balls. Time for T20 mode now, surely! Maxwell, Stoinis, Carey, Coulter-Nile, Cummins - some very clean hitters of the ball to come after this. Carey and Maxwell are two players who could have been sent in ahead of Khawaja today to target India's spinners in the middle overs.
I think that when you're chasing 350, giving Glenn Maxwell as long as possible to bat is probably the first strategic move you make, and work backwards from there. #CWC19— Ben Jones (@benjonescricket) June 9, 2019
How many miles Indian cricket has come
India are almost done with their quota of overs to be bowled by the fifth bowling option. Hardik Pandya has figures of 0/53 in his 8 overs. Kedar Jadhav gave away 14 runs in 1 over. Which means just one more over needs to be gotten out from them. Kuldeep and Chahal bowling from either end at the moment. Steve Smith looking to dance down the track to Kuldeep.
'Someone needs to take risks ASAP'
'Someone needs to take risks ASAP', says Michael Clarke. Smith is batting at a strike rate of almost 100, his score now moves into the 40s. Usman Khawaja with him. Clarke says Maxwell, the batsman to come in after this, could be who the Aussies need out there right now.
Australia still narrowly behind the DLS par score
Australia managing to be around 10 runs behind the DLS par score. Something that will serve them well if the clouds open up. India will be praying that rains stays away.
Finally! Warner is OUT for 56! Chahal strikes for India! Kohli brought him back on for some damage control, and he responded to his captain's call. What a moment in the match. Warner's resistance ends. AUS 133/2 in 24.4 ovs
