The all-rounder was awarded man of the match for his phenomenal display on the field. Considering the situation of the game, coach Ravi Shastri made a decision to promote Pandya to number 4 in the batting order today and he did the job anchoring the innings and nearly giving it the finishing touches.

With a series win at the venture, India is now very strong team with Manish Pandey proved him so good at the match.

Three of India's top four batsmen scored 70 or more as the hosts chased down a 294-run victory target at Holkar Stadium in central Indore city, with 13 balls to spare for their third successive victory in the five-match series.

The duo added 56 runs for the third wicket. Chasing 294, India got a fine start via fifties from Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma, that gave the home side the ideal start that it wanted to chase the grand total.

And why wouldn't he be after taking his team to a winning situation with a valiant knock of 78 off 72 balls. We have been wanting a guy like that for the past five, six years. Pat Cummins took his wicket when he got him caught by Kane Richardson.

Smith was furious with himself after getting out caught at long-off from the final ball of Kuldeep Yadav's ninth over for 63 off 71 balls, his second consecutive ODI half-century. He hit 5 fours and 4 sixes to help India win.

"I felt they were 35-40 runs short". Then Pandey and MS Dhoni finished the things off.

Nathan Coulter-Nile (1-58) eventually removed the unsafe Rohit and Rahane followed his partner two overs later when he was trapped in front by Pat Cummins (2-54). "And that it's the odd one or two that when they can't see the seam, then the players react off the wicket and that's probably the odd one here or there", Warner told reporters here.

Earlier, Finch (124, 125b, 12×4, 5×6), playing his first game of the series, struck a fluent century before India bounced back in the last 10 overs to restrict Australia to 293 for six.

Australia started strongly with Finch and Warner combining for a 70-run opening partnership.

Meanwhile, Yuzvendra Chahal and Hardik Pandya chipped in with one wicket each.

Handscomb will take the gloves as wicketkeeper when Australia bowl following Matthew Wade's axing. India did not make any changes.

This is the first time India have beaten Australia in each of the first three matches of a bilateral ODI series.

As of now some ideologies of the IPL's brought about, an Australia tour of India still remains something of a culture which stunned the team.
