Australia elect to bat in fifth ODI against India


India defeated Australia by seven wickets in the fifth and final match of the series here on Sunday. He picked up 6 wickets in the series and scored 222 runs in the series which included 2 half-centuries. But they slumped 118 for 4 by the 25th with Kedar Jadhav (1 for 48) and Axar Patel (3 for 38) doing most of the damage.

"All the bowlers who participated in this tournament have gone with this mindset of taking wickets".

India have pulled back a few things with Finch dismissal (off Hardik Pandya) and Kuldeep Yadav's tight bowling is making sure Australia don't get any easy runs.

So Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are all set to win another game before the T20Is.

Kohli had to do something to change the momentum of the game and he brought in Hardik Pandya as first change.

David Warner and Aaron Finch have started to their open their shoulders after being watchful in the first two overs.

Batting first was an obvious advantage for Australia, something they hadn't used up too well in the third ODI. "We've played in these conditions so many times and they understand that they need to keep sticking to their strength", Rohit said.


The Australians struggled against the Indian spin attack. Australia chose to give Travis Head a long run in the middle-order where they play a significant role in their decision. He faced 63 balls and hit four fours as well as a six.

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.

He had a bit of luck going his way with wicketkeeper Matthew Wade dropping him in the 22nd over but couldn't last long as he was trapped in front by Nathan Coulter-Nile the very next over.

He had put on 27 runs with James Faulkner (12) as India's tight bowling in late overs just didn't let the scoring rate get away, limiting the visitors to 52 runs for five wickets in the last 10 overs.

Like all four of Australia's losses, at one stage they looked in control only for India to outclass them. Let's see how the players manage to overcome this barrier and exhibit marvelous performance in this last game of 5 match ODI series.

Rohit Sharma struck his 14th one-day global century as India thumped Australia by seven wickets in Nagpur to complete a 4-1 series victory and reclaim top spot in the ICC rankings.
