Meanwhile, India will like to make a solid comeback into the series. The biggest positive for the hosts was the return of form of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma. Dhawan desperately needed some runs under his belt and he was able to get back his Midas Touch. However, Dhawan’s career best of 143 went in vain as Australia won by four wickets.
