After winning the toss and deciding to bat, the Men in Blue posted 352 for 5 off their 50 overs. Indian batsmen made a mockery of the Australian bowling attack as they plundered runs. While Dhawan, who was adjudged Man of the Match, for top-scoring with 117, Kohli smashed 82.
Rohit Sharma scored 57, Pandya made a quickfire 48 off 27 balls and Dhoni chipped in with a useful 27 runs.
Defending 352, Indian bowlers did not allow the Australian batsmen to score freely as they bowled tight lines to ensure that the match did not go out of their hand.
Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah were the picks of the bowlers, scalping three wickets each. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal took 2 for 62 in his 10 overs.
India will now face New Zealand on June 13 at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
