India vs Australia - Highlights & Stats

It came long before his man-of-the-series effort in India, where he scored 383 runs - more than Virat Kohli and more than any other batsman has managed in a five-match ODI series against India.

Usman Khawaja's rich vein of form continued with his second ODI century as Australia amassed 272-9 from their 50 overs, the opener's 106-ball 100 key for the tourists as only Peter Handscomb (52) joined him in passing 30. Australia won just two ODI matches past year, the fewest ODI victories since 1978 when it played only two one-day internationals.

India's chase looked in good shape early on as they kept pace with Australia's scoring rate, the sides separated by one run at the 15-over mark.

"Australia have not been playing great ODI cricket for the past 12 months, so I think what they showed here in India is a lot of spirit and determination", he added.

"But the fight that we showed, we've had our backs against the walls for quite a while now so I'm really proud of the group".

"They beat us in Australia, so to come back from those first couple of losses and win three in a row to win the series is a great feeling".

- This was India's first bilateral ODI series defeat at home since their loss to South Africa in 2015/16 season.

"Man of the series in a one-day tournament in India, I wasn't even in the one-day side this time a year ago", he told reporters after the match.

"It's huge. Just winning a series in India is huge".

- Kuldeep Yadav conceded 74 runs while taking a wicket in the final ODI played at Feroz Shah Kotla Ground which is now his second-most expensive bowling figures in ODIs.

Speaking to PTI Bishan Singh Bedi said that Dhoni's absence was felt in the fourth match between India and Australia.

Kedar Jadhav (44) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (46) threatened to deny Australia with a 91-run partnership, but Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson removed them in successive balls and India ultimately fell some way short on 237 all out, losing their last wicket to the final ball of the innings. "It has been an unbelievable ride since India arrived in Australia", Langer said. "He wanted to know where he was at with white-ball cricket", Langer recalled after Khawaja's match-winning century in the Delhi decider.

A beleaguered Australia resurrected their one-day fortunes in the most dramatic fashion in India and the timing could not have been better for a team who will be defending their World Cup title in England and Wales later this year.

Aaron Finch-led Australia will next travel to the United Arab Emirates for the five-match ODI series against Pakistan starting March 22.
