India chased down the target with relative ease, thanks to the brilliance of top three batsmen. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan laid the foundation with 87-run opening stand, then skipper Virat Kohli joined the Hitman from Mumbai to complete the job.
Dhawan made 46 off 34 balls, and was visibly disappointed. But Rohit (123 from 129 balls) and Kohli (96 from 78 balls) remained unbeaten.
