India won their first match of the ODI series against Australia by 28 runs a very fantastic performance by  Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai.

Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to have a bat first for the team.

 The team had a few changes from the last series new opening combo of Rahane and Rohit Sharma.

It was also interesting to see the young and talented Manish Pandey given a chance early on in the series

We think starting is not so good as we seen Kohli and Manish Pandey sent back in quick succession to leave India three down with just 11 runs on the board.

A small partnership between Rohit Sharma (28) and Kedar Jadav (40) gave India a breather but Stonnis got wicket of both batsmen
