February 12, 2012 6:02am CST
Second consecutive nerve breaking tight match in cricket triseries in Australia. This time the match went in favour of India against Australia. Needing 13 runs to win in last over, Indian captain Dhoni hit a huge six of the third ball and brought the target within reach in laqst three balls. Clint McKay, the most successful Australian bowlers today, made things easy by bowling one above waist high giving India three runs. Dhoni clipped next ball to midwicket and ran required 3 runs snatching the victory from the jaws of defeat. Indian top order batsmen, Virat kohli and Rohit Sharma, both getting good start, made things difficult for themselves by hitting irresponsible shots and getting out when things looked easy for India. All's well which ends well. A sweet victory for India.

Yes kasiviswanathan, at last Indian team managed to beat full fledged Aussie side after humiliation in test series and first match of the O.D.I. series. The fingers were crossed until the last over. Dhoni did a great job in snatching the victory from the jaws of defeat.

This match should have easily won,but what we saw was rash shots being played by Rohit and Virat, which can be called over-attacking, and then over-defensive tactics by Dhoni to play so many dot balls,he played atleast 30 dot balls which could have been resulted into risk free singles if Dhoni wanted.Sorry for being critical though,overall it was indeed a sweet victory since beating Aus in ODIs anywhere is simply great.
