India thrash Australia to end ODI series on winning note

India thrash Australia to end ODI series on winning note”

The Kohli-led side will look to dethrone South Africa once again from the top spot in ODI ranking.

Australian captain Steven Smith in action against India in the final ODI against India.

Indian cricket player Virat Kohli, second right, celebrates Australian batsman Peter Handscomb's wicket during the fifth one-day worldwide cricket match between India and Australia in Nagpur, India, Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017.

The series of course is done and dusted, India having won the first three ODIs.

"I would have like to have scored runs in the last four or five innings, but that hasn't happened". Sharma brought up his 14th ODI ton by smashing Nathan Coulter-Nile for six over midwicket.

"But we're not doing it consistently enough and giving ourselves the chance to really good hard at the back end of a game and getting the partnerships in the middle". Have a few things to look at to try and improve and gain the consistent performances we are after.

Rohit Sharma was imperious against Australia. After loosing three consecutive matches, Aussies made a good comeback by defeating the host team in 4th match.

Wade has failed to make a double-figure score in his past seven worldwide innings across both Test and one-day cricket. The other keeper, Peter Handscomb, did have a great outing in Bengaluru, with him scoring a timely 43 off 30 balls which helped Kangaroos to go past the 300 run mark. The game is going to be played at Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground, which is located in Nagpur.

Australia made 242 for 9 in 50 overs at Nagpur in the fifth and last ODI, setting India a target of 243.

Rahane has been a stand-in opener for India, as Virat Kohli and the team management prefer to go with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan in limited overs cricket.

His return from injury after more than a year out of worldwide cricket has been one of the few positives for Australia in a disappointing series.

Travis Head, who scored 42, and Marcus Stoinis with 46 then forged a patient 87-run partnership for the fifth wicket in the face of a persistent Indian attack.

However, Sunil Gavaskar, who presented the pitch report on Sunday, promises a better wicket.

David Warner is the highest scorer on behalf of the team.

But headaches for the Indian batsmen were rare.

But Smith isn't looking that far ahead though with three Twenty20 internationals against India kicking off on Saturday in Ranchi. "The situation I batted this time was different from what I've been used to, so I've learned a lot, and a pleasure playing against Australia", he said.
