In the penultimate over, Shami dismissed Matthew Short with an off-cutter after Suryakumar Yadav caught him at over mid-wicket and after the next ball, Sean Abbott was cleared up with a slower ball to clinch a five-wicket haul.
India restricted Australia to 276 after bundling out the whole team on the last ball.
