6.43pmSo, India secure their second successive victory this World Cup. It was set up by Dhawan who cracked 117 off 109 balls before mighty blows from Pandya, Kohli, Rahul and Dhoni propelled India past 350. Australia had a rather sluggish start; Warner laboured to his slowest ODI fifty. Fifty of Warner's 84 balls were dots. Smith made a more fluent fifty and Carey hit Australia's fastest World Cup fifty, but the rapidly rising asking rate was simply too much to overcome. Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah grabbed three wickets each while the spinners were quite impressive in the middle overs.

That's all we have for you from this game. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. This is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of Sreshth Shah and Chandon Duorah. Good night and cheers

Shikhar Dhawan, Player of the Match: We're very happy with the result and it was a great team effort. We guys are a great fielding shape - too 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.

Finch: 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 need some more time. He's a world-class player and will get us to a flier.

Kohli: 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.

Kumar to Zampa, OUT, Bhuvneshwar closes out the game with his knuckle-ball variation. Back of a length on middle, Zampa splices it to mid-off. That is that
