After team India managed to defeat Australia by 26 runs in a rain-curtailed match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, the 'men in blue' spotted on the Chennai airport in a relaxing mode.

But MS Dhoni was the one who was took some time to relax by sleeping on the floor while others were sitting beside him.

Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has took on micro blogging site Twitter and posted team India's picture resting on the floor.

The Indian cricket board captioned the picture, “that is how you relax after taking a 1-0 lead. #TeamIndia #INDvAUS.”

Dhoni had earlier done a similar thing when he slept on the ground during a match which was interrupted by the crowd against Sri Lanka.

Team's right-handed batsman KL Rahul also took on Twitter and posted a picture with caption, “Travel days with the team be like....#TeamIndia #INDvsAUS.”

With the extensive win, Virat Kohli-led team India have taken a 1-0 lead in the 5-match ODI series.

Australia were set a target of 164 runs in 21 overs through Duckworth and Lewis System after rain finally relented in Chennai.

After winning toss and electing elected to bat first, India set 282 runs for team Australis.

Opting to bat first, India made what could be termed as the worst start to their innings, losing their first three wickets of just 11 runs.

Though opener Rohit Shrama (28) and Kedar Jadhav (40) tried to find their feet slowly, it seemed that the pitch was assisting the Australian pacers.

However, India rode on contrasting half centuries from all-rounder Pandya (83) and former skipper Dhoni (79) to help India recover from a precarious 87-5 and post a score of 281-7 in their stipulated 50 overs against the Steve Smith-led side.
