Melbourne - Aaron Finch made 96 on Sunday to lead Australia to a six-wicket win over India in a tri-series one-day cricket match shaped by the innings of two opening batsmen.
Rohit Sharma earlier made 138, batting for 49 overs and adding 126 with Suresh Raina, to steer India to 267-8 as they batted first at the Melbourne Cricket Ground after winning the toss.
Mitchell Starc took a career-best 6-43 to limit India.
Australia's innings developed along strikingly similar lines: Aaron Finch opened and played the anchor, sharing a 101-run third-wicket partnership with Steve Smith that carried Australia within sight of victory.
Finch and Smith were out within three balls of each other around the 40th over and Australia lost two more wickets before it reached its target with an over to spare.
