Australia vs India Highlights And Cricket Score 5th Match - ODI Commentary

End of Over : 50.0 AUS: 272/9

Terrific comeback from India! At 175-1 in the 33rd over, you would have surely felt that Australia are on course for another big total but that was not to be. After the centurion, Khawaja departed, the Australians lost their way completely. They lost 5 wickets for the next 50 runs and during that period the run rate also slowed down. At one stage 250 also seemed tough but a handy partnership from Cummins and Richardson meant they got to something which you can say is just about par on a slower surface. 273 is the target and India will have to bat well to chase this down. The question however is, will the wicket ease out, will the dew come into play or will the surface worsen? Join us to find out in a while.

49.6 W

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. OUT! Richardson is short as they referred for a run out appeal upstairs. A yorker on middle, this is flicked towards mid-wicket. The batsmen take one and then they go for the second which was never on. Dhawan in the deep fires it to the keeper who collects it and throws it at the stumps. He appeals, the umpire takes it upstairs and replays show that Jhye is short. Just a run from the last ball. AUSTRALIA FINISH WITH 272!

49.5 4

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. FOUR! Lucky one but a much-needed. Full and outside off, JR looks to hit it over the leg side but gets a leading edge over the short third man fielder and into the fence.

49.4 1

Jasprit Bumrah to Nathan Lyon. A bye taken! Seam-up delivery outside off, Lyon looks to cut but misses. Jhye wants strike so he goes for the run. Pant misses his shy.

49.3 1

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. Continues bowling the slower one. Jhye is way too early into the shot. He mistimes it towards mid-wicket for a run.

49.2 0

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. Another slower ball outside off, Richardson once again swings but only connects with thin air.

49.1 0

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. Full and outside off, Richardson looks to put bat on ball but misses.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Nathan Lyon. Lyon is off the mark as he flicks it through mid-wicket for a run.

Nathan Lyon walks in.

48.3 W

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Pat Cummins. OUT! It is not a bump ball and it is an unlucky dismissal for Cummins! Kumar bowls it very full and on middle, Cummins looks to swing but ends up getting an inside edge. It hits his pad and then lobs towards the bowler who takes it and appeals. The umpire is not sure whether it has bounced or not and he takes it upstairs. The soft signal is not out. Replays roll in and they show that Cummins has to take the long walk back. A handy cameo from him and a vital stand for Australia and a frustrating one for India come to an end.

Appeal for a catch! Is it a bump ball? The umpires go upstairs and the soft signal is not out.

48.2 2

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Pat Cummins. Slower one, short and wide outside off, the batsman reaches out and hits it to sweeper cover for a couple of runs. This is a terrific partnership.

48.1 1

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Jhye Richardson. Played through mid-wicket by the batsman. One run added to the total.

End of Over : 48 19 Runs AUS: 260/7
47.6 4

Jasprit Bumrah to Pat Cummins. Length ball on off, Cummins runs it down to third man and takes a run.

47.5 1

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. This is eased through mid on for a run.

47.4 4

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. FOUR OVERTHROWS! So that is three consecutive boundaries now. Very needless from Bumrah this. He bowls it on a length and around middle, Richardson works it to the right of Bumrah. He collects it and then throws it at the stumps at the striker's end. The batsman is in but the ball deflects off the stumps, past the keeper and into the fine leg fence. Bonus runs for the Aussies.

47.3 4

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. FOUR! Fuller ball on off, Richardson frees his arms and drives it through covers for a boundary.

47.2 4

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. FOUR! Educational edge that! Length and outside off, Richardson looks to run it down to third man but it goes off the outside edge, a lot finer than Jhye wanted it to and a boundary results.

47.1 2

Jasprit Bumrah to Jhye Richardson. Up and over! Richardson manages to get enough on that as he clears mid-wicket. The batsmen take two.

End of Over : 47 11 Runs AUS: 241/7

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Jhye Richardson. Jhye has driven it through mid-off. One run added to the total.

46.3 3

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Pat Cummins. Good fielding! Cummins swings again, this time it is not off the middle but since there is no one in the deep mid-wicket region it is safe. Shankar makes good ground to his left and stops the ball before it crosses the ropes. Saves a run for his side.

46.2 4

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Pat Cummins. FOUR! Solid shot! Much-needed boundary! Slightly fuller and on off, Cummins makes room and then hits it over mid off and a boundary results.

46.1 0

Pat Cummins is the new batsman.

45.5 W

Mohammed Shami to Alex Carey. OUT! Another one bites the dust and the last recognized batsman has been dismissed. 250 now looks farfetched! The slower ball outside off, Carey looks to drive but gets an outside edge which goes low towards the keeper. Pant takes a very good catch diving forward.

44.3 2

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Jhye Richardson. Richardson is off the mark as he works it with the angle through mid-wicket and takes one.

44.2 W

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Marcus Stoinis. OUT! CHOPPED IT ON! The slower ball does the trick, it is on a length and outside off. Not too far outside off though. Stoinis still looks to cut but gets an inside edge onto his stumps. Another big-hitter fails to make an impact and India are now into the bowlers.

44.1 1

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Alex Carey. Close shave! This one is angled away from the batter. Carey guides it towards point and the batsmen set off for a run. Jadeja there has a shy at the striker's end but misses.

41.2 W

Kuldeep Yadav to Ashton Turner. OUT! Turner holes out! Once again the shot can be questioned, with 7 from the first ball, was this shot necessary? Don't think so, especially with 8 overs left after this and Carey the only batsman left, this was certainly not on. Kuldeep bowls the googly and lands it on leg. Turner looks to tonk it over long on against the turn. He ends up mistiming it high up in the air towards long on. Jadeja there runs to his right, settles under it and takes it.

41.2 wd

Kuldeep Yadav to Ashton Turner. Pressure getting to Kuldeep here! This is wide outside off and it has been left along. Wide.

41.1 6

Kuldeep Yadav to Ashton Turner. SIX! Poor bowling and it has been put away! Short and it sits up to be hit. Turner goes back and pulls it with ease, over the mid-wicket fielder and over the mid-wicket fence.

End of Over : 39 6 Runs AUS: 199/4
38.6 4

Mohammed Shami to Ashton Turner. Turns a length ball on middle to mid-wicket and crosses for a run.

37.6 0

Ravindra Jadeja to Ashton Turner. A dot to end as Turner flicks it to mid-wicket.

37.5 4

Ravindra Jadeja to Ashton Turner. FOUR! Edgy four! The question here is, where is the slip fielder? The pressure is on Australia at the moment and you have to have a slip in. There isn't one and Australia benefit. Floats it up outside off, Turner goes hard at it but gets an outside edge through the vacant first slip region and into the fence. Releases all the pressure that was building.

36.2 W

Mohammed Shami to Peter Handscomb. OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Another set batsman is back in the hut and the crowd here erupts. Shami gets his first and a much-needed wicket for him today. Excellent delivery. Bends his back on this one and lands it on off, this one pitches and takes off. Handscomb looks to guide it down to third man but gets an outside edge to Pant. The Indians are ecstatic at the moment and there are now two new batsman out in the middle.

36.1 0

Mohammed Shami to Peter Handscomb. Direct hit and that would have been close! Handscomb hits it straight to Kohli at covers. Stoinis does not realize it is straight into the hands of the fielder there as he is backing up a long way. The fielder has a shy but misses.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Marcus Stoinis. Back of a length on off, kept out.

34.4 1

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Peter Handscomb. Fifty for Handscomb. Follows his ton with a half ton and is still not done. He is set and needs to stay there as it is not easy for a new comer on this wicket. His 4th in ODIs. Gets there by guiding it down to third man for a run.

34.3 0

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Peter Handscomb. Another slower one on middle, Peter strokes it uppishly towards mid on.

Marcus Stoinis is the new batsman.

33.5 W

Ravindra Jadeja to Glenn Maxwell. OUT! In the air... taken! Kohli takes his second catch in the space of 6 balls and Maxwell walks back without troubling the scorers a lot. A soft, soft dismissal this and a poor shot. He has just arrived to the crease and instead of getting used to the wicket, he goes for an expansive drive through the off side. The ball though sticks in the surface and he ends up hitting it uppishly towards extra cover where Kohli takes it. Big wicket as the platform was set for Maxwell to get in and then launch. India right back in this now.

33.4 1

Ravindra Jadeja to Peter Handscomb. Well fielded, Shankar! Handscomb does well to guide it past the point fielder. They take one and think of a second. But Shankar gets to the ball in a flash and releases it quickly.

33.2 0

Ravindra Jadeja to Peter Handscomb. Handscomb strokes it through mid off and takes a run.

Drinks break. India have just managed to break the partnership and would like to pick a few more to stop Australia's charge. Glenn Maxwell has joined Peter Handscomb in the middle and if the former gets going, it will be huge trouble for the hosts. Virat Kohli has brought Ravindra Jadeja back in the attack to bowl a few quick economical overs.

End of Over : 33 1 Runs AUS: 175/2
32.6 W

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Usman Khawaja. OUT! Khawaja drills his drive through the line and Kohli takes a fantastic sharp catch at extra cover. The Indian skipper throws the ball in anger after that. Finally, the home team has managed to break the 99-run stand. A slower one by Kumar, an off cutter at 120.9 kph, Khawaja is probably deceived there as he mistimes his drive uppishly to Kohli. Usman cannot believe it. He has to walk back now.

Kuldeep Yadav to Peter Handscomb. A single to end as Handscomb sweeps it through square leg for a run.

31.5 1

Kuldeep Yadav to Usman Khawaja. 100 for Usman Khawaja. He punches the air in delight. His second in ODIs and both have come in this series itself. He gets there by punching it through covers for a single. Takes the helmet off and soaks in the applause. What a series he is having! He has probably booked his place in the team for the upcoming World Cup. Can he make it a daddy hundred now and take Australia to a big score?

31.4 1

Kuldeep Yadav to Peter Handscomb. Eases this down to long on and gets to the other end. Gives the man on 99 the strike.

31.3 4

1.1 0

Mohammed Shami to Aaron Finch. What a beauty to begin with! This guy is in some rhythm. The ball starts around off which means Finch has to play at it. The ball though leaves him late, luckily for Finch it whizzes past the outside edge.

The president of the DDCA rings the bell to mark the beginning of this match. The Indian team gets into a quick huddle. Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja are the Aussie openers. It's going to be Bhuvneshwar Kumar to bowl with the first new ball. All set, here we go...

Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says they too wanted to bat first as it looks like a slow track. He hopes it does not break down a lot and the dew sets in later on. Mentions they are one of the best chasing teams in the world and they need to show that today. Further adds that the Aussies played better cricket in the last two ODIs. He feels that their team balance is just fine. Informs Chahal misses out for Jadeja and Shami comes in for KL Rahul to give an extra bowling option.

Australian skipper, Aaron Finch says that he wants to put runs on the board. Reckons much cannot be taken into consideration from the past scores as they are from long time back and very few international games have been played at this venue. On team changes, Finch informs that Shaun Marsh and Jason Behrendorff are out for the decider and Nathan Lyon and Marcus Stoinis replace them.

Toss - Aaron Finch calls it correctly at the toss and AUSTRALIA WILL BAT!

Shikhar Dhawan is caught down with a chat with Sanjay Manjrekar. Dhawan says that his performance was not up to the mark but he was just taking it into his stride and was analyzing his game. States that he was calm and continued his process. Mentions that he was just playing to the merit of the ball and he did not want to rush into things. Explains that he kept his composure and calmness and that helped him play his natural game.

Pitch report - Sunil Gavaskar and Murali Kartik are down for the pitch report. The former feels that this surface is going to be low and slow. States that there will be very little movement off the pitch but the ball won't come onto the bat nicely as it does on other surfaces in India. He expects dew to play a factor today. Gavaskar reckons there will be very little spin but feels it won't worry the batsmen. The Little Master expects a score of 250 should be par. Suggests that the team winning the toss should bat first but also adds that if dew comes into play later in the evening then that might play a part as well.

The series decider is here. Feroz Shah Kotla is all set to host the fifth and last ODI between India and Australia. The touring team has the momentum currently after back-to-back wins and for a change, India are on the back foot at home. They were expected to win this series, and that too quite comfortably, but the visitors have surprised them with their resurgence and now the Men in Blue will have to put their best foot forward to win the series. All to play for then and we are minutes away from Toss. Stay with us for all updates...

End of Over : 50.0 IND: 237/10

Right then, the moral of the story is - Never write off anyone. Australia have achieved the unimaginable. Now, they will head to the UAE to face Pakistan in a 5-match ODI series, starting on 22nd March. The Indian players, on the other hand, will get ready to participate in the lucrative T20 League, starting on 23rd March. We look forward to your company in future. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!

Victorious Australian skipper, Aaron Finch says it is unbelievable, the fight and resilience they have shown. Mentions they had their backs to the wall but did really well here. States it is important to have a well-balanced side for these conditions as if you only go with attacking batsmen, you will struggle. Further adds that they had a mixture of both and hence did well. Ends by saying a lot of people have written them off but with the team they have, they can surely win the World Cup.

Usman Khawaja is the Player of the Match and Series! He says that scoring hundreds becomes special if you win games also. Feels that it's never easy to beat India at home and they are really excited with this series win. Mentions that they adapted quite well and credits the team performance for this success.

Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says the target was gettable but mentions that Australia got away from them a little bit and they conceded 15-20 runs more towards the end. Admits Australia deserved to win the series as they were more hungry and played with more passion. Further adds they did not even consider the dew as it is not controllable. States there are no excuses and they would want to rectify their mistakes and be ready for the World Cup. Continues saying that they have played quality cricket over the last few months and they can be happy about what they have achieved till now. Ends by mentioning that they are quite clear about what they want to do and there is only one spot which they have to think about, the rest is quite clear.

Now it's Justin Langer's turn to give an interview. He says all the credit goes to the players as they are the ones who have to perform. It is going to be really tough to pick the World Cup squad and that's a good headache for the selectors. Adds that the fight shown by his team is really unbelievable. States he hasn't seen a better player than Virat Kohli and credits him for his performance. Reminds that India had the better of them in Australia and they have taken the revenge. Further says that Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins are developing a good partnership with the ball and appreciates the effort from Khawaja.

Peter Handscomb and Pat Cummins are giving a quick interview. The former starts by saying that it was his role to try and take it as deep as possible. Mentions that he has enjoyed batting with Khawaja. States that it means a lot to win a series in India and it gives them a lot of confidence. Pat Cummins then says that he hasn't really clicked in this format but has done well here. Hopes the World Cup goes well as they have started to find form and he wants to carry it forward. Ends by saying he enjoys coming to India and he feels really good. Handscomb ends the interview by saying that this achievement is something very special and they are very happy.

Australia were superb in the field. They bowled with purpose and fielded with a lot of intensity. Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson did a brilliant job with the new balls and then their spin twins took over. Nathan Lyon did an efficient job while Adam Zampa once again was pivotal in the middle overs. All in all, a complete team performance from the visiting team and they will be thrilled with this series win. The World champions are peaking at the right time and appear to be ready for their title defense, one can say.

India's chase never got going, to be honest. They lost their star batsmen, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli cheaply and then the replacement for MS Dhoni, Rishabh Pant also failed to leave his mark. Rohit Sharma held one end tightly for a while and completed 8000 ODI runs in the process but after his departure, the writing was on the wall. Kedar Jadhav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar did form a 91-run alliance to scare the Aussies but both the batsmen got dismissed off consecutive balls and that ended all the hopes for India.

Coming to this game, Aaron Finch won a crucial toss on a slow-looking surface. The batting from the Aussies was once again right on the money as their top order put up a good show. But then the Indian team made a fine comeback post the 33rd over and never allowed the visitors off the hook. The 34-run stand for the 8th wicket between Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson powered Australia to 272/9 and that partnership eventually turned out be the match-winning one.

The long wait is over for Australia! They have beaten India in India in an ODI series after almost 10 years. Great character shown by the new-look Aussie team. They were thin on experience, had quite a few new faces, the conditions were alien but they gave it their all and have upset the Men in Blue in their own backyard. This has turned out to be a very fruitful tour for them as they won the T20I series as well.

Drinks Break - Australia are well on top here. Only one recognized batsman is out there in the middle. For India, this partnership holds the key. The onus will be on Kedar Jadhav to score and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to support him. The Aussie bowlers have done a great job so far but they cannot take their foot off the gas and need to keep taking wickets. Equation - 115 needed off 90 balls.

Adam Zampa to Ravindra Jadeja. OUT! Jadeja's back leg is on the line with nothing behind. Touch and go in the replays and the third umpire has ruled it in the favour of the Kangaroos. This is beautiful bowling from the leggie. Yet another wrong 'un has done the job for him. It lands around off and turns the other way. Jadeja gets forward with a big stretch but fails to put the bat on the ball. The Aussie keeper is quick to take the bails off and appeals. He looks confident as the square leg umpire takes it upstairs. The replays roll in and they find Jadeja's back leg on the line. A 3-ball duck for Sir.

Stumping appeal! Alex Carey is looking quite confident. Ravindra Jadeja has a confused look on his face. The square leg umpire has referred it upstairs. Is Jadeja's back leg on the line?
