Zampa puts India in a spin as Australia seal stunning series win

There were several players in the Australian team who produced outstanding performances, most notably opener Usman Khawaja, who was the highest scorer of the series with two centuries and an equal number of half-centuries. "Must enjoy ourselves and play because we enjoy the game", Kohli said in the post-match press conference.

"When things are tough, you need experienced guys in your side like MS Dhoni". "The resilience and fight that we showed being down 0-2 it would have been easy to roll over in those small moments in the game, just let them drift away and India win the series", Finch stated after the victory."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". It was India's first series loss at home since October 2015 and Australia's first ODI series win in India in a decade.

"No one will be forced to do something but eventually, everyone knows that no one wants to miss the bus for the World Cup", Kohli stressed further.

Khawaja, who was named man of the series, said it was a sweet revenge after the home ODIs defeat to India early this year.

India will also be fretting on the second wicketkeeper's slot after Pant's patchy glovework in the last two matches when Mahendra Singh Dhoni was rested. After winning the toss Australian skipper Aaron Finch chose to bat first.


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.

Always looking for a motivational edge, Australia coach Justin Langer asked his charges to cast their minds back to November as they prepared to face India in Delhi.

"To be here in India and winning this series, it's massive. Usman Khawaja also has been fantastic, having not played much of white-ball cricket, in the last 12 months".

Under Dhoni's captaincy, India won the inaugural World T20 in 2007 and the ICC World Cup in 2011, ending a 28-year drought. Australia will now play Pakistan in Dubai, whereas the Indian players will join their franchises ahead of the upcoming IPL season.

Despite being defending and five-time World Cup winners, the Australians finished their 2018 ODI matches with a loss in Hobart to South Africa, part of a 2-1 series defeat and their 13th ODI loss of the year. The Australians have one more ODI series - five matches against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates - before the World Cup starts in England in late May.
