Ravindra Jadeja stunned Shane Watson by leaping high to claim a return catch, as India sealed the T20I series with a 27-run win at the Melbourne.
"It was fantastic," says MS Dhoni. "The support was very good. It has always been very good even when we are not playing well. That Jadeja catch was fantastic. That was a crucial part of the game. No wonder commentators keep saying catches win matches. Spinners did a great job, also Hardik's over with that wicket was good. Bumrah has done well at death bowling. He has bowled yorkers.
