The recent 2-3 loss to Australia is India's first bilateral ODI series defeat at home since their lose to South Africa in 2015/16. In between, they won six bilateral ODI series at home.

While it was Australia's first bilateral ODI series win since their victory over Pakistan in 2017. In between, they lost six bilateral ODI series. Moreover, this was India's first ODI series defeat under the leadership of Virat Kohli at home.

This loss will hurt India for a long time. It also raises many questions before they start their World Cup campaign. Australia, on the other hand, are back in form just in time with the series win in India.
