Virat Kohli continued to prove he is the best batsman when it comes to chasing. His 11th hundred batting second and 17th overall in ODIs and Shikhar Dhawan's ton took India to victory in the final over.

Highlights: 6th ODI: India Vs Australia

India scored 351/4 in 49.3 overs. Kohli was 115 not out off just 66 balls. Dhawan scored 100.

Earlier, captain George Bailey (156) and Shane Watson (102) blasted centuries to catapult Australia to a mammoth 350/6 in 50 overs.

Australian batsmen were aided by very ordinary bowling and bad fielding from the hosts. Bailey and Watson made merry. Bailey smashed his way to few records at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium.
