Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details

On a pitch that seemed moist and soft underneath, David Warner asked India to bat first at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati, which is making its international debut. Dew was expected to be a concern later in the night, which was why Virat Kohli too admitted he would have preferred to bowl first.

Australia, looking to stay alive in the series, brought Marcus Stoinis back to replace Daniel Christian. That being the only change meant Glenn Maxwell got another go. India were unchanged.
