Skipper Virat Kohli smashed his 40th century to guide India to 250 on a challenging pitch in the second one-day worldwide against Australia on Tuesday. "Only if I do it will people know I can", Shankar said after his first two wickets in his sixth ODI.
Kohli, hit 10 fours in his 120-ball knock and held anchor on a track that appeared to aid bowlers, after Australian captain Aaron Finch elected to bat in the day-night game.
Virat Kohli was man of the match for his 40th hundred, nine less than Sachin Tendulkar's ODI record.
India lead the five-match series 2-0.
"It's important to look ugly at times, and come through and win", Kohli said.
"We've still got quite a lot of cricket before the World Cup but I honestly think it's in a really good place".
Put in to bat, India lost their first wicket in the opening over when opener Rohit Sharma (0) was sent packing by pacer Pat Cummins. The all-rounder notched 46 runs with five fours and an over-boundary.
USB 4 Debuts With Twice the Throughput and Thunderbolt 3 Support
We have no idea what the first implementation of the news USB4 standards will be called and won't until it's released in mid-2019. Intel started certifying devices with support for Thunderbolt 3 in 2015, and in 2017 it chose to open the standard.
The result means Australia will lose the series if they suffer another defeat in Ranchi on Friday.
India got off to a poor start losing Rohit (0) cheaply but Kohli staged a lone battle to single-handedly steer India to a respectable total on the board. An out-of-form Shikhar Dhawan scored 21, but Glenn Maxwell trapped him in front.
The duo added 81 runs before Shankar was unluckily run-out at the non-striker's end.
Adam Zampa scored two to give his teammates hope of a miracle then was clean bowled by Shankar, who was hammered for 13 runs during his only other over in the match. Zampa struck twice more to remove Kedar Jadhav on 11 and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, caught at slip for a first-ball duck, as India slipped to 171-6 in the 33rd over. But Kohli completed his century before getting out in the 48th over by Cummins.
Carey became Yadav's third victim while Nathan Coulter-Nile and Pat Cummins were out during the 46th over, a cracker from Jasprit Bumrah that cost just one run and ended with Stoinis turning down a single to keep strike.
Kohli had to dig deep and combined for 67 with Ravindra Jadeja to take India past 200 in the 39th.
