India vs Australia 5th ODI highlights: Chasing a target of 273, India were reduced to 132/6 within 29 overs. Kedar Jadhav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar then put up a remarkable resistance but their fall in the last five overs took away any chance of victory for India. Australia ended up dismissing the hosts for 237.
Australia were down and out after the first two ODIs but a hat-trick of wins after that has changed the picture completely for them ahead of the World Cup. With the likes of David Warner and Steve Smith yet to come, the number of good batting performances in this series is an encouraging sign for the defending champions. This is their first ODI series win India since 2009 and India’s first defeat at home in the 50-over format since 2015.
