India achieve stunning run chase

8:41 am on 17 October 2013

The Indian cricket team sent their fans into a frenzy this morning with one of the greatest one-day run chases.

In game two of the best-of-seven series in Jaipur, Australia must have thought their total of 359 for 5 would be more than competitive, but India achieved the second-highest runchase of all time, with nine wickets and 39 balls to spare.

Aided by small boundaries and a docile pitch, Rohit Sharma made 141 Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan's a mere 95.

Kohli's century came off just 52 balls, the fastest ODI century by an Indian.

The Australian cricket captain George Bailey says India's batsmen were phenomenal in pulling off the second highest One Day run chase in history.

Bailey says it was hard for the Australians to accept the loss after amassing an impressive total.
