MS Dhoni hits the winning boundary that seals the fate of the Mohali Test in India’s favour. Three consecutive boundaries off Starc took India to 136/4 as they won the Test and took 3-0 lead in the four-match series.
The first day of the Test was washed out due to rain. However, a record-breaking century from Shikhar Dhawan followed by a combined bowling effort from the Indians that restricted Australia to 223 runs in the second innings laid the foundation of a thrilling win over Australia. With this victory, India regained the Border-Gavaskar trophy that they lost in a similar fashion in Australia last year.
