Usman Khawaja stars again as Australia seal comeback series win over India

Glenn Maxwell | Kedar Jadhav | India vs Australia 2019

Opener Usman Khawaja once again proved to be the vital member as he scored his second ODI century in the series and second overall. "Being down 2-0 it would have been easy to roll over".

Not just as a reliable batsman and wicketkeeper, Dhoni's guidance in the field was also missed in the last two matches that India lost against Australia.

But the victory has greater significance as Australia claimed a stunning come-from-behind series win for a huge confidence boost ahead of the World Cup - nearly exactly a year after a ball-tampering scandal rocked the sport and led to the suspensions of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.

His huge tally was enough to earn him both the man of the match and man of the series awards.

India to clash with Australia in 5th ODI on March 13
Australia claims historic one-day international series win in India

First time Australia have won an ODI series in India since 2009.

Australia lost the opening two games, but Wednesday's triumph rounded off a stunning turnaround and ensured they won a bilateral ODI series of at least five matches from 2-0 down for the first time.

First time Australia have chased down more than 334 to win an ODI (produced record chase of 359 in fourth ODI to level the series). Throughout the series, India tried out numerous combinations.

They will rejoin their team-mates in mid-May, ahead of World Cup warmup matches against India and West Indies in the UK. No Australian has ever had such a prolific five-match ODI series in India, the next best effort was Carl Rackemann's 11 wickets at 12.54 in 1984. "It's a lot of fun scoring hundreds and even more winning games", Khawaja said. The leg-spinner was taken to the cleaners in Mohali and Jadeja came back into the side presumably for his potential as an all-rounder.

Virat Kohli took back-to-back catches to dismiss Khawaja and Glenn Maxwell, and Shami sent back Peter Handscomb for 52.

Only some late order hitting from Jhye Richardson (29 off 21) and Cummins (15 off 8) pushed Australia to a competitive 272.

A seventh-wicket stand of 91 runs between Kedar Jadhav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar created some nervous moments for the visitors but it was snapped when Cummins claimed his 14th wicket of the series.

Seldom in their cricketing history Australia have walked in to a series as the underdogs, but they walk out with the heads held high, inflicting a series defeat on the World No.2 side in their final ODI series before the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.

"They were courageous in the pressure situations compared to our side", Kohli said.

"People have written us off for quite a while now", said Finch. It will be tough for the selectors with few guys coming in. He also said nobody in the dressing room was "panicking" after losing an ODI series at home just before the World Cup, as they were "pretty clear" about the XI for the world tournament.
