India vs Australia Live Streaming: AUS vs IND Live Cricket Score 5th ODI Match 1st October 2017

India will eye top spot in the ICC ODI Rankings when they take on Australia in the fifth and final match at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium on Sunday. He picked up 6 wickets in the series and scored 222 runs in the series which included 2 half-centuries. Kedar Jadhav has been brought into the attack and he produces a decent display, sprawling just 3 of the over. Then Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar closed out the innings so well that Australia lost five wickets for the addition of 52 in the last 10 overs. He was well supported Kuldeep Yadav who couldn't pick any wicket but kept pressure on the Australian batters.

Jasprit Bumrah (2/51) bounced back brilliantly in the death overs to finish with much improved figures.

But, Kohli said that he now has a "good" headache in selection as Hardik Pandya, who was named the Man-of-the-Series, proved himself as good player top of the order as well. The Indian captain said that the series win was convincing and the team ticked all the boxes in the five matches.

Rohit hailed the bowlers for restricting Australia to 242 which hardly proved a challenge for the Indian batsmen.

David Warner's century in the fourth ODI and back to back scintillating knocks from Aaron Finch should give them the confidence that Hilton Cartwright hadn't afforded them earlier. And he has played really well throughout the tournament, scoring four fifties in the last four games and he's shown a lot of maturity as well handling the new ball.

Part-timer Jadhav was impressive and besides keeping things tight, took the prized wicket of Smith, who missed a sweep shot to be plumb in front, leaving Australia at 100 for two in the 20th over.

He came back to play in Sri Lanka and scored two successive hundreds and a fifty.

Fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile finally broke the partnership when he trapped Rahane leg-before.

Glenn Maxwell's return is not about to happen with Peter Handscomb delivering an important cameo in the Bengaluru and Matthew Wade offering greater assurance behind the sticks.

The 22-year-old managed to take seven wickets, including a hat-trick, in the four matches he played against Australia.

Rohit Sharma struck his 14th one-day worldwide century as India thumped Australia by seven wickets in Nagpur to complete a 4-1 series victory and reclaim top spot in the ICC rankings.
