Khawaja ton guides Australia to 272-9 in deciding ODI

  • India to clash with Australia in 5th ODI on March 13

"It's a lot of fun scoring hundreds and even more winning games", Khawaja said.

The win is Australia's first since they hosted Pakistan in January 2017, snapping a streak of six consecutive series defeats - Australia's worst run of all-time.

Australia again started well with Finch and Usman Khawaja putting on 76 for the first wicket until the Aussie captain departed.

Swashbuckling Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma on Wednesday added another feather to his already illustrious cap, equalling former cricketer Sourav Ganguly's record of being the third fastest cricketer to reach 8000 runs in ODI cricket. "It just goes to show you the courage required to win a series in this country but also to gather and muster the strength without some of your formidable players - your Smiths, your Warners, your Starcs".

India crashed to 6-132 in response and were bowled out for 237 when Marcus Stoinis skittled Kuldeep Yadav's stumps with the final ball of the series.

But when Jadhav was dismissed off Jhye Richardson, India wilted under the climbing asking rate.

A New Zealand XI - not including their IPL players - travel to Brisbane in the first week of May to face an Australian XI in three unofficial one-day matches.

Some late hitting from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who struck 46 from 54 balls, could not get India over the line.

Australia suffered a mini-collapse, though, and lost three wickets for seven runs in the space of 21 balls.

No students were charged, with authorities saying that in many cases the teenagers were unaware of what was going on. Ms Huffman was one of several charged who appeared in court on Tuesday before being released on bail.

Khawaja, who has been instrumental in Australia´s turnaround after being 0-2 down in the series, built crucial partnerships including a 99-run second-wicket stand with Peter Handscomb, who made 52.

Sharma's bat slipped from his hands while attempting to clatter a boundary and Alex Carey effected a sharp stumping off the bowling of Zampa.

The Australian spin trio of Adam Zampa (3/46), Nathan Lyon (1/34) and part-timer Glenn Maxwell (0/34) kept the Indian batsmen on a tight leash.

He scored 50 and 38 in the first two ODIs before notching his maiden ODI century at Mohali as Australia began their comeback.

The in-form Khawaja made 100 off 106 deliveries as Australia put up a competitive total after electing to bat first at Delhi´s Feroz Shah Kotla ground.

Ashton Turner and Marcus Stoinis celebrate an Indian wicket.

Prior to this series, the left-hander who had yet to score an ODI ton was seen as a stop-gap option at the top of the order until David Warner's return from a year-long suspension. No batsman has ever scored so many runs in a five-match ODI series against India. Australia next head to the UAE and will take on Pakistan in a five-match series, both sides' last engagement before that summer tournament.

For India, the recently concluded ODI series against Australia has been nothing less than a nightmare.
