Usman Khawaja Audio|speaks to the media after the ODI against India

A man of the match performance from Usman Khawaja has helped keep the Qantas Tour of India ODI Series alive, with Australia recording a vital 32 run win over India in Ranchi.

Usman Khawja's (104) maiden ODI century for Australia and another strong performance at the crease from Captain Aaron Finch (93) helped Australia set India an imposing target of 314 for victory.

Australia's bowlers once again troubled the hosts. Pat Cummins (3/37), Jhye Richardson (3/37) and Adam Zampa (3/70) all combined to dismiss the hosts for 281 in the 48th over.
