INDIA have boosted their confidence ahead of Sunday's opening one-day game against Australia, levelling the Twenty20 series with the home side 1-1.

India bowled Australia out for 131 in 19.4 overs and scored 2-135 in reply with two balls to spare at the MCG on Friday night.

Gautam Gambhir was unbeaten on 56 and skipper MS Dhoni 21 not out.
