    Virat Kohli's fluent century and Suresh Raina's quickfire 71 led India to a convincing five-wicket victory over Australia in the second One-Day International, at the Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy stadium, in Visakhapatnam , on Wednesday.

    India cruised to 292 for five in 48.5 overs in reply to Australia's 289 for three, winning with seven deliveries to spare. The victory enabled the hosts maintain their unbeaten record at the venue. They lead the three-match series 1-0, after the first match in Kochi was washed out.

    Kohli, who batted with a runner after suffering cramps, excelled in tough conditions, scoring 118 from 121 balls, before he was caught at long-on off debutant John Hastings.

    Raina provided the late surge, as he smashed his way to 71 from 47 balls, including nine fours and a six.

    Yuvraj Singh looked good for a big knock before he was deceived by a slower delivery from Clint McKay and bowled after a brisk 58, inclusive of five boundaries in 87 balls. The left-hander rallied India after the loss of a couple of early wickets with a 137-run partnership off 152 balls for the third wicket with Kohli.
