Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar step up: India's report card from Cricket World Cup win over Australia
Here's a look at how each player fared during India's 36-run victory at The Oval in London
Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli more than made up for their disappointments with the bat against South Africa in Southampton on Wednesday by leading India's charge against Australia at The Oval on Sunday.
Dhawan scored 117 off just 109 balls, receiving ample support from opening partner Rohit Sharma (57) and captain Kohli (82), as India posted an imposing 352-5. It proved a good toss for Kohli to win as he made no hesitation in making first use of the pitch right before the temperatures dropped.
Australia showed depth in the batting by coming close to victory but India's bowlers fought the good fight to limit the defending champions to 316 all out. Much of the credit once again goes to their seamers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah, both of who took three wickets each.
