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.

    If you are an Indian fan...

    ...this loss will hurt. But think about this series as a cricket fan and you would notice that this has been one of the most extraordinary ODI series you would have seen in recent times. Even the likes of Bangladesh and Zimbabwe would have been given more respect by fans and experts than this Australian team were before the first match. They didn't do much to show that they deserved anything more in the 1st and 2nd ODIs but after that, look at what they have gone and done. We leave you with the report, thanks for sticking around, ciao!

    Aaron Finch

    "Unbelievable, the resilience and fight we showed, 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. If you just go with attacking batsmen in these conditions, you'll struggle. You need good batsmanship on these wickets. 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."

    21:45 (IST)13 Mar 2019
    Man of the series Usman Khawaja

    "Scoring hundreds is even more fun if you win games," he says. "Never easy to beat India at home, so we're very excited. We all adapted really well, end of the day, it was a really good team performance. Even when we lost the first two games, we had great vibes in the camp."

    21:45 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    "We certainly thought it was a gettable target, they got away from us in the end, 15-20 more than what we could have kept them to. Overall, Australia deserved to win, they played with more passion, hunger and heart. Were brave in pressure situations, they way they raised their intensity meant they were deserving winners. 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. Can be proud of the cricket we've played last few months, series didn't go well yes, but we've played well. We're more or less sorted, now it's about giving guys their roles and expect them to stand up. Maybe theree's just one spot we've to discuss. Last three games, the idea was to give fringe guys some time and see how they react. No excuses, we're expected to raise our standard of cricket. The changes will never be an excuse. We will take a lot of confidence going into the World Cup."

    Justin Langer talks to Star Sports

    "All the credit goes to the players, we help prepare them. They have to perform under pressure. Incredibly proud of the boys. Unless you're the selectors, tough to pick the squad. Been an incredible arm wrestle right from the time India arrived in Australia in the summer. For us to win this series is incredible for Australian cricket. They showed great character, if you look over the whole summer, we've played about 17 games against India. India had the better of us in Australia and we were able to have the better of them here. I think Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins are developing into a great partnership, Usman Khawaja hasn't played a lot of ODIs but is a class act, he's got himself so fit. Credit goes to him for showing the discipline to get to where he is. You can name the whole group, they've gone a great job."

    21:14 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Marcus Stoinis cleans up Kuldeep Yadav off the final ball of the match, Australia have won their first bilateral ODI series in India since 2009. 

    21:07 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Shami goes for a yaba-daba-doo hook, ball takes the upper edge and balloons almost vertically up in the air, Richardson sprints forward after his follow through and takes the catch. Australia are one wicket away now. 

    20:55 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Richardson takes the next and that has to be that. Kedar pulls and sends it straight to deep midwicket. That is the end of a remarkable fightback. 

    20:54 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Cummins with the breakthrough and Finch symbolically takes the catch. Cummins bowls it full, angling in at the toes, Bhuvneshwar ends up scooping the ball up in the air, straight down the throat of mid-off. India 223/7, need 50 to win off 24. 

    20:50 (IST)13 Mar 2019
    Bhuvi dropped

    By the bowler Richardson. A very difficult catch to pull off, Richardson had to dive to his left and it was dipping on him. Bhuvi had a hit a six off the previous ball. 

    20:45 (IST)13 Mar 2019
    Cummins pulls it back

    Just four runs off that over and, more importantly, no boundaries. This is still a long, long shot for India but Kedar Jadhav has shown that only an injury can keep him away from a seat in that flight that goes to England in May. 

    20:41 (IST)13 Mar 2019
    200 up for India

    They need 73 to win off 42 and Cummins has been brought back into the attack. Kedar and Bhuvi are leading one of the most remarkable turnarounds you would get to see in ODI cricket but there is still a long way to go. Don't move from your spots. 

    20:38 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Jadhav clears deep square leg and sends Maxwell over the ropes. Hello then, we have a chase in our hands, this partnership is now India's highest of the innings. 

    20:30 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Two fours in the same and this time it's Bhuvneshwar Kumar! He slices Maxwell through point. Just before that, Maxwell and Kedar collided at the nonstriker's end while the former tried to collect the ball that was sent down the track by Bhuvi. The Kotla crowd has found it voice again because of all this. 

    20:27 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Kedar Jadhav charges down the track and sends it hurtling towards long on. That's a reminder of sorts from him, "I'm still here folks."

    20:20 (IST)13 Mar 2019
    Kedar and Bhuvi

    India ned 110 runs to win from 78 balls. The required rate is north of 8.5 and the current rate is south of 4.4. And if one of these two batsmen get dismissed now, we go into one of the most fragile tails in world cricket. 

    19:59 (IST)13 Mar 2019
    32 overs gone

    India 146/6. Kedar Jadhav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the middle. Australia are absolutely on top. In the previous decade, this was a rather familiar position for the Indian fans when their team is playing against the Aussies. Is this series a sign of things to come? 

    19:48 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Jadeja this time, Zampa gets a second in the same over and his third of the match. It is a gem of a delivery, drifts in and then spins away to deceive Jadeja completely, Carey sharp once again behind the stumps and India lose another. What an incredible comeback this has been from Australia in terms of this series. 

    19:44 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Is that the game? Rohit goes forward, Zampa sees it and shortens his length, batsman misses it completely and Carey finishes it off with a brilliant stumping. India are in rough waters now. 

    19:40 (IST)13 Mar 2019

    Rohit Sharma hits it to straight to cover, the ball is at knee-level for Maxwell and he fluffs it. Not an ideal thing to do when you have Rohit in the middle and need him to score runs.
