Phew! That brings us to the end of our coverage here Thank you for your company. Hope to see you guys for the IPL that starts in 10 days. Let the countdown begin...
Aaron Finch, Australia captain: It is unbelievable. The resilence and the fight we showed, after being 0-2 down, it would've been easy to roll over, but the fight we showed makes it a great achievement. Proud of the group. It's important to have a balanced side. If you're going with all attackers it won't help, the quality in Chahal, Kuldeep, Jaddu is too good. I've been coming here for a while now, trying to win, hadn't happened. That's why this makes it special. People have written us off for a while, we knew the style and plans we wanted to play with are all there and can win us the World Cup. It's about believing we're good enough, we did that in four out of the five games. Great series all around.
Usman Khawaja is Player of the Match and also Player of the series for scoring 100 off 106 in this match and amassing 383 runs in the series
Khawaja: Lot of fun scoring hundreds. We came down after being 0-2 down. Great to be on winning side. I just played whatever wicket came in front of me. It is a really good team performance. Partnerships were important. Finchy batted really well. Wickets have been high-scoring. Everyone chipped in. Great bunch of guys there. Even when we lost first two games, there were positive vibes.
Virat Kohli, India captain: Yeah we certainly thought it was gettable. They did get away towards the end, maybe 15-20 extra. They were the better side and deserved to win. They played with a lot more passion, hunger and heart. Were brave in pressure situations, the way they raised their intensity meant they were deserving winners. We are not upto the mark in the last three games. We didn't even consider dew in this game, can't predict these things. Can't take any excuses, have to live up to the potential. It's good we have had these losses, to correct these at the World Cup. The guys will reflect on this series quite a bit, been playing a lot of games on the road. We can be proud of the cricket we have played. We are not in the confused, maybe one spot is something which we have to discuss. Changes is not an excuse, but we used the last three matches to give games to players whom we thought are good enough to play at this level
Pat Cummins:Felt like I bowled well in the Aussie summer, glad it has clicked. Have played ODI cricket before but felt wasn't clicking exactly. Hopefully I can continue this at the World Cup. We always tend to peak around the World Cup, with a few guys set to come back. Always love coming to India.
Justin Langer, Australia coach: Credit goes to the players. They have performed under pressure. Incredibly proud of the boys. It has been an unbelievable fight. To win this series is incredible for Australian cricket. We showed great character. Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins have developed a great partnership. Usman Khawaja, we know what a class act he is.
Peter Handscomb: My role was to try and take the innings as deep as possible. Couldn't have done without Uzzi (Usman Khawaja). It means a lot to come over and win a series in India. Yeah! Special to come back from 0-2 down, the boys are gelling beautifully. Very happy.
This is also India's first ODI series defeat at home under the leadership of Virat Kohli.
Most wickets taken in a 5-match bilateral ODI series against India in India:
43 by Australia in 2000/01
43 by Australia in 2018/19*
40 by South Africa in 2105/16
What a win for Australia. They have proven that they will be a force at the World Cup especially with Steve Smith, David Warner and Mitchell Starc back in the mix. India's first ODI loss at home since 2015 and they must be extremely disappointed given they were 2-0 up in the series. Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Peter Handscomb and Usman Khawaja were absolutely brilliant. India still yet to solve the No.4 problem. It's Australia that win the series 3-2.
Australia win 5th ODI by 35 runs, complete turnaround to win series 2-3.
What a way to end the series. Jubiliant scenes in the Aussie camp the players huddle around and celebrate the win. Fantastic performance by the team from Down Under to comeback from being 2-0 down.
OUT! Bowled'em! Kuldeep swings and misses and Stoinis manages to uproot Kuldeep Yadav's middle stump to complete Australia's 35 run win in the fifth ODI and seal Australia the series 2-3. India all out for 237.
OUT! Short ball gets big on Shami, who is looking to smash an almighty pull, hits him on the splice of the bat with the ball simply ballooning up. Richardson hares to compelete the catch of his bowling. Australia one wicket away.
Shami c and b J Richardson 3(7)
OUT! That should be the game and series for Australia. Richardson bangs one short, angled into Jadhav's body, not enough room there to get all the power behind the pull shot and Maxwell gets around at deep mid wicket and clings on to the catch. Two wiickets in two balls has doused India's hopes of pulling off a late hiest
Kedar Jadhav c Maxwell b J Richardson 44(57)
OUT! Cummins rolls his fingers over the ball and keeps the length full on middle and leg. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was looking to loft it over the mid off fielder but doesn't get enough to clear Aaron Finch, who back paddles and takes a good catch. India's hopes once again crushed. Cummins with his second wicket.
Bhuvneshwar c Finch b Pat Cummins 46(54)
OUT! India crumbling and Zampa is wreaking havoc. Another googly from the wrist-spinner, this time to the left-hander, Jadeja didn't pick it, the ball spins past his outside edge and Carey whips the ball. Does Jadeja have anything behind the line? Tough call for the TV Umpire... and he has pressed the red button. Jadeja has to go. Out for a duck.
Jadeja st Carey b Zampa 0(3)
OUT! Well, what happened there...Rohit charges down the pitch and goes for an almighty big swing across the line, but all he connects is a waft of air, in fact, his bat slips out of his hands and flies towards short fine leg in the process. He was undone by the googly from Zampa, that went right through Rohit and Carey completes a simple stumping. That's got to be the match for Australia. Zampa is delighted.
Rohit st Carey b Zampa 56(89)
DROPPED! Oh dear! Maxwell has put down a sitter and Rohit Sharma has another life. Rohit drives it straight to the fielder. The ball goes in and slips out. Zampa is ruing his luck. Big miss?
DROPPED! Rohit Sharma prods forward to block the ball, but the leg break turns and takes a feather to Carey, who puts it down. Zampa knew it straightaway and snicko confirms it.
OUT! Zampa pulls the length back for this one. It wasn't tossed up. Flat delivery on the leg stump and Vijay saw another opportunity to milk a six down the ground, went with the straight bat and got the elvation but not the distance. The long on fielder runs in and takes the catch
Shankar c Khawaja b Zampa 16(21)
FIFTY! Rohit strides forward and taps it past the cover fielder to bring up his half-century. The crowd stands up and cheers, Rohit acknowledges the applause and after quick handshake with Vijay, he is ready to focus back on the chase. He knows still a lot of work remaining
OUT! A lovely delivery from Nathan Lyon. A perfect delivery that an offie wants to bowl at the left-hander early in the innings. Lures Pant forward with his flight and the batsman presses forward, the ball dips and turns away to take the outside edge to first slip. Typical dismissal
Pant c Turner b Lyon 16(16)
OUT! Stunned silence in Kotla! Virat Kohli departs! Oh dear, a very uncharacteristic slash from Kohli brings his downfall. A cross seamed delivery from Stoinis, which is short and wide. A ball Kohli would have thrashed in his sleep, but today he has got a nick to Carey. Stoinis is pumped.
Kohli c Carey b Stoinis 20(22)
OUT! Dhawan nicks and Carey takes a simple catch behind the stumps. Cummins strikes early. Back of a length delivery that was angled across the left-handed batsman, who was looking play it on the up through covers. Hard hands from Dhawan and the visitors rejoice.
Dhawan c Carey b Pat Cummins 12(15)
After 50 overs,Australia 272/9 ( Nathan Lyon 1 , )
Brilliant is the word for Bumrah. Finishes with figures of economical figures of 0/39 in his 10. India restrict Australia to 272/9. They will be chasing 273 and they will be going back to change room as a very happy side knowing how great a start the visitors had got and how they staged a comeback. Hundred from Khawaja, fifty from Handscomb and a quickfire 29 from Richardson. Apart from them, no one else could come up with a good knock. We will be back with the chase in about half-an-hour.
OUT! Ninth wicket goes down on the last ball of the over as Richardson hit it to leg side and runs hard for the second. Kohli throws at quick speed and before the batsman could reach back to the crease, Pant collects the ball and runs him out. J Richardson run out (Kohli/Pant) 29(21)
OUT! Cummins has to go. It was a half-hearted appeal by Bhuvneshwar for a caught and ball, umpires did not look confident, went uptsair and the replay showed that ball hitting the pads on its way to Bhuvneshwar's hands. Pat Cummins c and b Bhuvneshwar 15(8)
OUT! Edge off Carey's bat, off-cutter from Shami and Carey fails to time the ball, bat comes late and the edge carried to Pant who dives in front to complete a good catch. Carey c Pant b Shami 3(9)
OUT! Bowled' Em! Slower delivery from Bhuvneshwar and Stoinis tries to play the big shot but the inside edge chops the ball on to the stumps. Stoinis b Bhuvneshwar 20(27)
OUT! Wrong' un from Kuldeep, it was tossed up and Turner came down the wicket, hit it but could not connect well, ball went up in the air and reached long-on where Jadeja caught it with safe hands. Turner c Jadeja b Kuldeep Yadav 20(20)
After 40 overs,Australia 202/4 ( Marcus Stoinis 8 , Ashton Turner 13)
200 up for Australia in the 40th over. The way Khawaja and Handscomb were going, it should have been done a long time back. India must target to curtail Aussies below 300-mark. Kuldeep bowled some loose deliveries in this over too but was lucky to be not hit.
OUT! And another wicket for India, Shami removes Handscomb, good length and the ball rises surprising the batsman, ball takes the edge and travels to Pant who collects it cleanly with both hands. Handscomb c Pant b Shami 52(60)
OUT! Maxwell gone and India right in this again. Jadeja tosses it up and turns it away from Maxwell, who clears front leg and tries to clear the covers, but gives a straight catch to Kohli placed there. Kotla is on its feet and cheering. Maxwell c Kohli b Jadeja 1(3)
OUT! Half-volley and Khawaja smashes it to cover, flies to Kohli placed there, who catches it and throws the ball hard on to the ground as if to drain all his frustration down. The reaction was not really needed but India have the wicket. Khawaja c Kohli b Bhuvneshwar 100(106)
HUNDRED for Khawaja!
Second ton for Khawaja in the tournament as he punches it on off-side and takes a single. Jumps punches his fist in the air. Deserves every bit of this celebration. Great going.
After 20 overs,Australia 105/1 ( Usman Khawaja 54 , Peter Handscomb 23)
Boundary on the first ball which was a tossed-up delivery. Kedar fires one into Handscomb on the next one and almost cleaned him up. The plan from Australia is to not let any spinner take control of the game. 8 off the over. 20 overs gone and 100 is also up for visitors.
FIFTY for Usman Khawaja, came off 48 balls and he has not looked uncomfortable in this innings so far.
OUT! FINCH Cleaned Up by Jadeja, ball pitches on middle-off stump line and then turns away just enough to beat Finch's forward defence and disturbed the off-stump. Finch b Jadeja 27(43)
After 10 overs,Australia 52/0 ( Usman Khawaja 34 , Aaron Finch (C) 18)
Fifty up for Australia in the 10th over. Very solid position they are in now. The openers have evaded the threat posed by India's top three pacers at the moment. Pressure on spinners now to provide the first breakthrough.
India XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah
Australia XI: Aaron Finch(c), Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey(w), Jhye Richardson, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Nathan Lyon
India vs Australia 2019, 5th ODI Latest Match Updates, Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium
Australia win 5th ODI by 35 runs, complete turnaround to win series 2-3. What a way to end the series. The Aussies huddle up and celebrate win. Fantastic performance by the team from Down Under.
India and Australia lock horns in the 5th ODI at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. To follow the full scorecard of the 5th ODI, click here.
IND vs AUS 5th ODI Match Preview: India will have to quickly put behind a massive bowling failure, sloppy fielding and tactical mistakes to tame a resurgent Australia in the series-deciding fifth ODI here on Wednesday. The cricketing world has applauded India’s current bowling attack as one of its most potent but the failure to defend a mammoth total in Mohali came as a reality check for it.
Even the ever-reliable Jasprit Bumrah was taken to cleaners by Ashton Turner with ease, though the way captain Virat Kohli handled his quota of overs did leave many perplexed. Kohli and the Indian team definitely missed the calming presence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, whose understanding of game situations has been helpful in pressure situations.
Without doubt, the PCA stadium pitch was flat, offering nothing to the bowlers but a world-class attack was expected to defend a 350-plus total. The blazing knock by Turner, who was helped by the Indian team’s butter-fingered fielders helped Australia turn it around.
In Ranchi the team bowled first and in Mohali, Kohli opted to bat first, taking the dew into consideration but on both days, the opposite happened. It was dry when India chased in Ranchi but dew helped Australia’s chase in the fourth ODI with the Indian bowlers struggling to grip the ball.
At the Feroze Shah Kotla ground, the wicket is usually low and slow but the team would not like to be surprised in the key game which makes the toss crucial. Not many runs have been scored in the last two ODI matches played here with India losing to New Zealand by six runs in October 2016 and winning against West Indies by 48 runs in October 2014.
The Twenty20 games have been full of runs, though. The hosts can heave a sigh of relief with Shikhar Dhawan striking form. The Delhi left-hander managed to silence critics who had been after him due to a prolonged lean patch. At his home ground, he would look to get some more runs but it remains to be seen if the batters get a surface which assists stroke-play.
Going by history, the surface should be ideal for wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal as the slow bowlers have done well in the previous games. Usman Khawaja has been the man for Australia this series. His stellar show at the top has been instrumental in the visitors’ turnaround in the series. Getting him early would be crucial to India’s chances.
With skipper Aaron Finch, Peter Handscomb and new sensation Turner contributing in the team’s good run, this Australian side is definitely on the right track to regain its status as one of the most formidable sides. The winner-take-all contest will also be the Indian team’s last in the 50-over format before the World Cup, making ti the players’ final chance to make an impression on the selectors minds.
Vijay Shankar has done a reasonably fine job with the bat in the limited chances he has got but Rishabh Pant did not do any good to his wicket-keeping reputation by missing chances in Mohali. As a batsman, though, his utility is beyond doubt. The top and middle-order is largely settled and tomorrow’s game will be one last chance for Pant, Shankar, KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja to do something special and prove their worth. Jadeja may figure in the playing XI tomorrow, considering that his left-arm spin on the Kotla wicket would be effective.
India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Australia: Aaron Finch (captain), Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Turner, Jhye Richardson, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Alex Carey, Nathan Lyon and Jason Behrendorff.
Match Starts: 1:30 pm.

Resuming the day at 300 for six, Rishabh Pant took India to 329 in their first innings with an unbeaten 58 before running out of partners.
England's batting centred around the tall and elegant right-handed opener Crawley, who was returning after missing the first two Tests with a wrist injury.
Rohit, who hit a dazzling 161 in the second Test in Chennai, said he hardly bothers about type of pitches while batting.
