India beat Australia by six wickets in the 2nd ODI at Adelaide yesterday to level the three-match series 1-1.  The current and former India captains, Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni shared an 82-run stand for the fourth-wicket to keep India on the winning course despite chasing a tough 299-run target.  

Man of the match Kohli was dismissed in the 44th over after making 104 off 112 balls with five fours and two sixes. 

This was Kohli's 39th ODI century and sixth ton against Australia. Dhoni contributed an unbeaten 55. Dinesh Karthik played  brilliantly and was unbeaten on 25 as India reached the target with four balls to spare. 

Earlier, electing to bat first, Australia scored 298 for 9.  

Shaun Marsh smashed his 7th hundred before Bhuvaneshwar Kumar produced a brilliant spell in the death overs to limit Australia to under 300. Bhuvaneshwar claimed 4 wickets while Mohammed Shami took  3 wickets. The hosts were unchanged from the previous game, while India brought in debutant Mohammed Siraj in place of Khaleel Ahmed. The decider of the series will be played in Melbourne on Friday.
