That's it from Sportskeeda's coverage of the India-Australia match today!

Do join us tomorrow as South Africa take on West Indies at the Hampshire Bowl at 3 pm IST. 

Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Ciao! 
Virat Kohli, the winning captain: "Top, top win for us after losing that series in India. We had a point to prove. We just came with intent, the opening stand was outstanding. Hardik, me, MS, it was a flat wicket, but we were very professional that's always pleasing as a captain. You can't take things for granted just because you have 350 on the board. I held one up and Hardik could go from ball one. If Shami plays, it has to be proper overcast and 
bowling conditions. Bhuvneshwar the new ball, old ball - the wickets of Smith and Stoinis. These guys are very experienced, you hardly need to say anything to them."
Aaron Finch, the losing captain: "They got 120 off the last 10 - which was a lot. We didn't get too many wickets and when you have experienced guys and powerful guys it's tough for anyone. Being a used surface didn't help with the new ball. But we could have been bit more back of a length, but India bat very deep. They just outplayed us. You need to asses the conditions and pick the XI. We will be in a better place to make the decision in Taunton. There are 10 ways to get out and run out was one of them. They bowled very well to Warner and he needed some more time. He's a world-class player and will get us to a flier." 
The player of the match is Shikhar Dhawan!
He said: "We're very happy with the result and it was a great team effort. We guys are a great fielding side - two great catches and made great stops. We have a great fast-bowling unit and spinners as well. We ticked all the 
boxes and your bowlers backed up the total on the board. I want to thank the fans as well. A lot people have come from India."
As expected, India and Australia served up a high-scoring encounter at The Oval with both sides breaching the 300 mark. However, the Indians looked a lot more methodical in their approach and that came to the fore in the 1st innings. Shikhar and Rohit got off to a sound start before they went through the gears. Kohli then acted as the anchor and allowed the likes of Dhoni, Pandya and Rahul to tee off at the other end.

A total of 352 always looked a little out of Australia's reach but they seemed to be in the game during the start of their essay. However, once Finch perished, the Aussies found it tough to get going. Smith stroked his way to 69 and acted as the glue but unfortunately for Australia, Warner behaved like another adhesive with a rather patchy innings of 56. Unsurprisingly, the Aussies got stuck in the middle phases with Chahal and Kuldeep weaving their magic. 

Towards the end, there was a bit of hope courtesy Carey and Maxwell's belligerence. Yet, it came a little too late for the Australians' liking. As for India, they would've been thrilled with the return to form of Kuldeep and Bhuvneshwar. 

The victory took India to 3rd spot and they would want to consolidate the momentum they have generated against New Zealand on the 13th of June. Australia, meanwhile, would hope to get back to winning ways when they take on Pakistan a day earlier. 
And Bhuvneshwar finishes off with a wicket off the final delivery!
Adam Zampa tries to loft the ball over the mid-off fielder but he toe-ends his shot. The ball goes up in the air towards mid-off where Jadeja lies in wait. Three wickets for Bhuvneshwar then!

49.5 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Alex Carey. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Yadav.
There was a lot of talk about Bhuvneshwar's place before the start of the game today with many experts calling for Shami's inclusion. However, the former has silenced all those doubters emphatically with a scintillating display. 
49.4 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Adam Zampa. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Chahal.
49.3 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Adam Zampa. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.

Starc is run out! 
Carey hits one to the cover fence and immediately calls for two. Starc though isn't as quick as his partner and the fast bowler is found well short at the non-striker's end while completing the second run. 
49.1 OUT! Run Out (Sub). Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Alex Carey. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, by Kumar.

48.6 Jasprit Bumrah to Alex Carey. Off cutter length ball, middle stump backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off for 1 run, fielded by Kohli.
Bumrah proving his death bowling pedigree with a sumptuous penultimate over. He is deceiving Carey with his slower deliveries at will and the exemplary length is making it difficult for the batsmen to line him up. Champion stuff from Bumrah. 
48.5 Jasprit Bumrah to Alex Carey. Off cutter length ball, off stump backing away Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dhoni.
48.4 Jasprit Bumrah to Alex Carey. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump backing away Slog, missed to third man for 2 runs, mis-fielded by Dhoni, fielded by Chahal.

Carey races to the quickest fifty of the 2019 World Cup!
Carey completes his fifty off 25 balls to earn himself the distinction of having scored the fastest half century at the 2019 World Cup so far. 
47.3 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Mitchell Starc. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, shy attempt by Yadav.
