Rohit praised the bowlers for bouncing back regularly from tough situations.

Opener David Warner made 53 while Finch (32), Head (42) and Stoinis (46) too made significant contributions.

The expensive Zampa gained belated rewards by having Rohit and Kohli caught in the deep, but Jadhav (5 not out) and Manish Pandey (11 not out) saw India over the line easily. 12 runs of Bumrah's 3rd over.

The openers did do a commendable job for India in the series with Mumbai mates Rohit and Ajinkya Rahane racking up three 100 plus partnerships in a row. "We did it in a couple of games, or last game in Bangalore in particular, but we're not doing it consistently enough to go hard in the back end of the game and getting the partnerships in the middle".

In the Indian playing XI, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal make way for Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav. The wristspinners took 5 for 63, bowling nine out of the 21 overs in a rain-shortened game.

Sometimes the new prize was something odd like a salami tree or a double-decker dining room set or it was something much better. Contestants would vie for the chance to see if they would win the big prize or the booby prize "behind door No. 3".

Rohit and his opening partner Ajinkya Rahane (61) put on a 124-run stand in 22.3 overs which virtually sealed the match in India's favour. India defended 252 with Kuldeep taking a hat-trick.

David Warner and Aaron Finch have started to their open their shoulders after being watchful in the first two overs. With 222 runs and six wickets, he was adjudged the Player of the Series.

So Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are all set to win another game before the T20Is. India's spin numbers were way better than the Australia's. The visitors have made only one change. "We have got guys, who can come up at any given point, take up the challenge, and just go out and do their job", Sharma said.

The 5th ODI of Australia Tour of India 2017 is going to held today at 1:30 PM IST. Even in the last game, we thought 350-360 will be on the board but we pulled it back. That is what these guys have done, all the spinners and the fast bowlers as well. Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri are unlikely to bin their efforts so they will be flawless in the ODI bowling unit. And having been thumped by South Africa 5-0 past year, it looked like this series was headed the same direction before that win.
