Australia won the toss and opted to bat against India in the fifth and final One-day global here on Sunday.
Australia gave away the momentum yet again in the series and ended up with only 242 on the board. Chasing 243, the hosts cantered to their target with over seven overs remaining as Australia's listless bowling attack failed to pose any serious challenge.
"We have glimpses of it, we play well in periods and then we get ourselves in trouble, probably from poor decision making under pressure, that's probably what you've got to put it down to most of all".
With the series victory, India have returned to the top spot in the ODI rankings. The pitch looks very hard, we would've batted first as well but it shouldn't change much through the game.
Once Warner departed for 53, the Aussies had a mini middle-order collapse as they lost the wickets of Steve Smith and Peter Handscomb in quick succession.
Paul George: Commitment shown by OKC has been 'off the charts'
Because of Westbrook's contract extension, there's at least a better chance that George and Anthony will choose do to do the same. In addition to the guaranteed money Anthony gets in returning to Oklahoma City , he now knows Westbrook will be here long term.
"I would have like to have scored runs in the last four or five innings, but that hasn't happened". Desmond Haynes also hit six centuries.
This was India's eighth century partnership for the first wicket in 28 innings 2017, a new record for most century stands in a year for any team. Captain (Virat Kohli) wanted to continuously change the bowling because he didn't want the batsmen to get used to a certain bowler. Starting from Chennai to Kolkata and then at Indore, Australians just can't seem to find a way to strike the hammer when the iron is hot.
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.
Travis Head (42) and Marcus Stoinis (46) steadied the ship with an 87-run stand off 112 balls but got out just when they looked set to push the scoring rate.
Sharma went on to register his 14th ODI ton during his 99-run partnership with Kohli, who made a sedate 39.
"We have played a lot of cricket together in Mumbai and we understand each other and we know each other's game really well", Rohit said. "The management has played a role in that as well", he said.
