After already having lost the ODI series, some changes were expected into the Indian playing XI for the third and final game at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. India brought left-arm quick Thangarasu Natarajan into the lineup - handing him his international debut. 

As Australia went about to chase India's total of 302/5, skipper Virat Kohli brought Natarajan into the attack in just the second over - a big task for the debutant. 

While Natarajan bowled two quiet overs, in his third over, he justified Kohli's trust by picking up Australia's first wicket - which was also his maiden international wicket. Watch this beautiful moment here:
