Behrendorff started right at the top, ripping up opener Rohit Sharma, and continued so.
It was a total extermination by Jason Behrendorff; he plucked up top four batsmen of the Indian batting line up one after another from which India could never recovered in the match.
27 was the highest score of the home team, made by Jadhav while Hardik Pandya scored 25.
In reply, Australia started quite shakenly losing two early wickets that of two openers Aaron Finch and David Warner both departed within 13 runs of team score.
But Moises Henriques and Tim Head resurrected from the team and shielded from losing any further wicket.
The visitors reached the winning target comfortably losing the initial two wickets and 27 balls remaining in hand.
