Rohit ton gives India comprehensive series win

India captain Virat Kohli feels man- of-the-series Hardik Pandya has emerged as the "biggest asset" for the team after their convincing 4-1 win in the five-match series against Australia.

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. Jasprit Bumrah (2/51) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/40) were yet again brilliant in the death overs. When Umesh and Shami got their opportunity they were pretty good as well.

India lead the five-match series 4-1. India is all set for the fifth ODI to take place in Nagpur Vidharba Cricket Association Stadium today. Let's see how the players manage to overcome this barrier and exhibit marvelous performance in this last game of 5 match ODI series.

India will also want to test out Axar Patel in another game where the team will have Kuldeep Yadav's next appearance which will be arriving T20Is. 10 years ago, I wasn't part of the team, so I can't (comment about them). "It's got nothing to do with that, I just need to score some runs".

"It is my job to score runs as an opener".

David Warner was the highest scorer with 53. Overall, he finished with an aggregate 244 runs.

"(The Shield games will) be crucial for my chances but I'm not anxious about it though", he said.

"We're going to focus on that and when that's done we'll take care of preparation for the Ashes", Smith said. And that has worked for me. Rohit said he likes to bat alongside Rahane, who got to play in the series due to the absence of Shikhar Dhawan.

Rohit scored 125 runs from 109 balls featuring 11 fours and 5 sixes in his innings.

The India opener is enjoying a prolific return to the worldwide arena following injury. I know my strengths and weaknesses and I try to work around that.

However, Travis Head (42) and Marcus Stoinis (46) put up an 87-run fifth-wicket stand to haul Australia to a respectable total.

Australia have recalled James Faulkner to the team as he replaces unwell Kane Richardson. "To restrict Australia to 242 on this particular wicket wasn't easy, because they are a solid batting line-up and especially with the opening partnership they got", he said.
