    Australia's Usman Khawaja (centre) had a bad Test series but he was adamant on making a point in the coloured clothing. He came to bat when Aussies were 8 for 1 and controlled one end beautifully. He ended up scoring 59 off 81 balls. The other contributor was Shaun Marsh (54 of 70) along with whom he made a partnership of 92 runs for the third wicket. AP

    MS Dhoni scored fifty in the match, a 51-run knock which came off 96 balls. There are two ways to look at his innings. Either he was too slow to cost India the game or he was required to play like that as India were 3 down for just 4 on the board. The fact that Dhoni could not finish the match on a winning note will hurt the former India captain the most. AP
