However, the real turning point came during Australia's innings when Jadeja, who is rated as one of the best fielders in the world put gave the world a display of incredible on-field brilliance.

Virat Kohli amassed his 40th one-day global century but it was Vijay Shankar's part-time seam bowling that helped India to a tense eight-run victory over Australia in Nagpur.

Pat Cummins snared figures of 4-29, taking the new ball and starting the innings with a wicket-maiden then later removing a well-set Kohli. Rayudu also came in and went back to the pavilion soon. Only Vijay Shankar (46) could support Kohli in his quest as three Indian batsmen recorded ducks.

Finch and Langer will rue their team's inability to deny Kohli, who now averages an outrageous 59.73 in ODIs, a seventh one-day ton against Australia. He was all set to score big.

Bumrah fired out Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile in the 46th over, which cost one run, then conceded a single run during his final over.

This was the second time in two months an MS Dhoni fan invaded the pitch. He batted really well in last two ODI innings. Zampa struck twice more to remove Kedar Jadhav on 11 and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, caught at slip for a first-ball duck, as India slipped to 171-6 in the 33rd over. They were the heroes from the last game. The Indian captain notched yet another century.

Kohli is now nine centuries short of the ODI record despite having appeared in fewer than half the number of matches played by India legend Sachin Tendulkar, the current holder. In this process, Kohli also becomes the fastest to score 9000 worldwide runs as captain.

Indian cricket fans always want to go near their favorite cricketers.

Running high on emotions, the trespasser was able to touch Dhoni's feet but in doing that, the Indian flag in his right hand brushed the ground.

One such instance happened today when the Indian team walked into the ground to resume the second innings, one Indian fan tried to meet Dhoni but the former Indian captain turned the situation amusing by playing hide and seek with the fan.
