RANCHI, March 8: Australia defeated India by 32 runs in the third ODI to keep the five-match series alive here on Friday.

Chasing Australia�s stiff 313 for 5, India were bowled out for 281 in 48.2 overs with skipper Virat Kohli scoring 123 off 95 balls.

Earlier, Indian pacers covered up commendably for a rare off-day endured by the spinners as Australia were restricted to 313 despite a 193-run opening stand between skipper Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja.

Usman Khawaja (104, 113 balls) scored his maiden ODI ton while skipper Finch (93, 99 balls) chose this particular match to get back to form. Glenn Maxwell (47 off 31 balls) also contributed with some lusty blows.

The Indian spinners � Ravindra Jadeja (0/64 in 10 overs) and Kedar Jadhav (0/32 in 2 overs) � were carted all around the park. Kuldeep Yadav (3/64 in 10 overs), however, redeemed himself at the back-end of the innings.

The trio gave away 160 runs in 22 overs and it was left to Jasprit Bumrah (0/53) and Mohammed Shami (1/52 in 10 overs) to maintain the discipline during the final overs as the total could have gone close to the 350-run mark.

In the final 10 overs, Australia could score only 69 runs, despite being 244 for 2 after 40 overs, courtesy Bumrah and Shami who bowled 64 dot balls between them.

The fielding on the day was also way below par as Shikhar Dhawan, at square leg dropped Khawaja, who tried a reverse sweep, while batting on 17 off Jadeja�s bowling.

Kohli, Jadhav, Bumrah were all guilty of slip-ups on the field which also released the pressure on the visitors.

With the pitch on offer being the best in three games, the Australian openers showed positive intent from the start.

Mohammed Shami�s freak on-field injury also played its part as he had to leave the field temporarily after bowling the first three overs.
