David Warner scored a ton to make his 100th ODI appearance even more special
"It goes to show the future is bright". Whoever has got an opportunity they have come and grabbed it.
Allrounder James Faulkner has been recalled to the Australia XI for the fifth and final ODI of the Qantas Tour of India with fast bowler Kane Richardson ruled out after being taken ill. The seven-wicket win helped India win the series 4-1 and retain the world number one rank in ODIs.
Rohit further hailed the bowling performance of the team in the match, and for bouncing back regularly from tough situations throughout the series. Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri are unlikely to bin their efforts so they will be ideal in the ODI bowling unit. "To restrict Australia to 242 is never easy".
Had it not been for an emergency in Shikhar Dhawan's family, this Mumbai pairing might not have materialised at the top of the order in the series.
"We did it in a couple of games, Bangalore in particular".
"We're just not taking our words out in the middle and doing it with action, unfortunately".
Meanwhile, Australia Cricket captain Steven Smith has conceded that his team deserved to be defeated 1-4 in the ODI series against India.
Australia have been outplayed by the new top-ranked team in the 50-over format and Smith said places are up for grabs for contenders in action back at home in the JLT One-Day Cup. We are losing wickets very consistently and that's not good enough.
His 125 off 109 balls featured his trademark powerful hitting - he smashed 11 fours fours and five sixes - and an awareness of the match's position, with few unnecessary risks taken.
Smith is not alone in lacking consistency, with No. 4 Travis Head failing to get a big score, while openers David Warner and Aaron Finch were Australia's best-performed batsmen, both getting centuries. However, Finch committed a mistake against first-change bowler Hardik Pandya to give India a breakthrough in the 12th over.
Axar Patel took three wickets in the 5th ODI in his 10 overs and giving just 38 runs.
Kohli looks like a skipper who would want to continue his experimentation but a loss in the previous game could push him to bring one of his strike bowlers back. As expected the batting line-up hasn't been played with which keeps KL Rahul on the bench for the whole series now.
In doing so, Sharma also became the third-quickest Indian batsman to register 6000 ODI runs, crossing the mark in his 162nd innings, behind Kohli (136) and Sourav Ganguly (147).
