India win toss, bowl in MCG ODI decider

The Virat Kohli-led side started their tour with a three-match Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) series that ended in a 1-1 draw, followed by a historic first-ever 2-1 Test series win for India on Australian soil.

It took the leggie all of two balls to make an impact, and his double-wicket over rapidly swung the game in India's favour.

The Aussies who declared their final XI have made a couple of changes to their bowling attack. Jason Behrendorff will, unfortunately, miss this game due to back soreness. Both pacers picked up two wickets apeice.

It was India's just second bilateral series Down Under after the 2016 series, which the hosts had won 4-1.

Where maintaining a disciplined line with his off-breaks has been the key to Lyon becoming Australia's greatest finger spinner, and arguably the world's best spinner, that approach does not work in the ODI arena, where variety is required. But after pitching, the ball turned away from him and went wide.

"He was the father of batting already and now he is a father in real life too, I am very happy for him and I know he is happy as well". He looked in great form as he found the gaps easily hitting 11 boundaries and three sixes.

In the pre-match press conference ahead of the third and final ODI between India and Australia, when Dhawan was asked by the media about Rohit becoming a father, he bestowed huge love for his opening partner and his family.
