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

The opener Khawaja strengthened his claim for a place in the World Cup squad with an elegant 100 to steer Australia to 272 for 9, although the tourists had looked on course to exceed 300 at one stage. "Being down 2-0 it would have been easy to roll over".

Australia won the toss and opted to bat in the fifth and final ODI against India here Wednesday. Former Australian World Cup victor Allan Border says, "There may no longer be room left in Australia's ODI XI for Steve Smith and David Warner after the team claimed its "best ever" series win in the format". The series came against the backdrop of India blaming Pakistan for the Pulwama attack and then crossing the Line of Control into the Pakistani airspace.

However, the bowlers could not defend a total of 358 as Australia chased down the mammoth total with four wickets and 13 balls remaining to level the series 2-2.

We know our playing XI going into the World Cup.

While the action on the cricket field during the five one-day internationals between India and Australia was high quality, intense and, at most times, edge-of-the-seat stuff, the off-field discussion in India was dominated by one word you often associate with reality television: auditions.

The 3-2 result snaps a series losing streak in ODIs in India that dates back to a seven-game series in 2009. 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.

When he played, and even when he did not, MS Dhoni established how important he is, from behind the stumps and in front of it. 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. But Khawaja and Handscomb denied the hosts any further opportunities.

But when Khawaja and Maxwell fell to nearly identical dismissals - caught at cover by Virat Kohli - and Handscomb followed close behind, the momentum stalled with Australia dropping to 7/229 in the 46th over.

The left-handed batsman accumulated 383 runs in the five ODI games to top the series run chart ahead of India skipper Virat Kohli.

The belligerence of Kedar Jadhav (44) and Kumar (46) in a 91-run stand for the seventh wicket injected some late drama into proceedings, but the home side ultimately fell some way short in succumbing to a third successive defeat.

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

"It's good we have had these losses, to correct these at the World Cup". It will be tough for the selectors with few guys coming in.

The left-hander started the series turnaround with a maiden ODI ton in Ranchi and bettered Kohli to finish the leading run-scorer of the series, all but cementing his spot in the 15-man World Cup squad.
