James Faulkner made an unbeaten 64 off 29 balls as Australia beat India by four wickets in the third ODI to take a 2-1 series lead.

Faulker, who hit six sixes and two fours, scored the winning runs with three balls to spare as his side chased down India's 303-9 in Mohali.

He shared a partnership of 91 with Adam Voges, who finished on 76 not out off 88 balls.

MS Dhoni had earlier performed a superb rescue job to put the hosts in a strong position at the innings break.

The India captain, who arrived at the crease with his side 76-4, produced a stunning not-out knock of 139 off 121 to set Australia a testing target, which was eventually surpassed in dramatic style.
