Australia manages to edge past India by 32 runs in the do-or-die Ranchi ODI to stay alive in this 5-match ODI series. The opening pair set up the game for the Aussies as Usman Khawaja (104) and Aaron Finch (93) added 193 in 31.5 overs. Once again, India were three down in a very quick time but skipper Virat Kohli kept the chase on with a gutsy inning. He scored 123 off just 95 balls as the hosts fancied their chances to a series win before the Australians pulled the things back.

Here are all the major stats and numbers recorded during a high-scoring ODI in Ranchi:

A game of captains:
