Australia's target of 202 was not enough, as Yuvraj Singh led India's charge to victory in the only T20 against India at Rajkot, with the hosts eventually winning by six wickets.
The Baggy Greens piled on 201 for seven from their 20 overs. India, despite their best efforts, looked set to fall short—until Yuvraj took charge.
Aaron Finch was the top batsman for Australia, his innings of 89 full of the bludgeoning shots that had been seen earlier this year when he flayed England around for 156.
Around him, there were fine cameos—debutant Nic Maddinson opened the innings with 34 from 16 balls, while Glenn Maxwell crunched four sixes in his innings of 27.
Despite a pitch that clearly favoured the batsmen, a chase in excess of 200 was always a tall order for India.
Australia took wickets at crucial times to peg back the India innings every time a batsman established himself.
Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed when set on 32, while Suresh Raina (19) and Virat Kohli (29) both disappeared after good starts.
That was, however, until Yuvraj entered the fray. He reached his 50 from 25 balls, and he powered on with the target suddenly coming back into view.
Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a renowned finisher himself, was happy to play second fiddle as the left-hander played gloriously.
A torrent of fours and sixes followed—he finished with eight and five, respectively—and his unbeaten 77 got India over the line with two balls to spare.
