Former Aussie captain Smith was in control of the chase, but a momentary lapse in concentration in the 38th over ended his stay in the middle. He tried to play a cut shot to a short delivery and ended up chopping it back to the stumps.

Watch it here:

Livid with himself, Smith swung the ball as he leaves the field even as India celebrate the big wicket. Smith was two runs away from a deserved century.

Yadav also became the quickest Indian spinner to take 100 ODI wickets.

Smith wicket opened the floodgates, and India wrapped up the Aussies for 304 to register a 36-run win and keep the three-match series alive.

The series decider is scheduled to be played on Sunday (January 19) at Bengaluru.
