Khawaja ton guides Australia to 272-9 in deciding ODI

Glenn Maxwell | Kedar Jadhav | India vs Australia 2019

While India was dominant when they toured Australia, Aaron Finch and his men proved they're no pushovers, bouncing back in India after trailing 2-0 in the ODI series.

The Indian team management are clear about their "playing XI" going into the first match of the World Cup despite their ODI series defeat against Australia as only one slot is up for grabs, skipper Virat Kohli said on Wednesday.

It was Australia's first ODI series win in India since 2009, when a Ricky Ponting-led side won a seven-match series 4-2, and follows humbling home Test and ODI series defeats against the same opposition.

This was India's final ODI before the 2019 World Cup. Throughout the series, India tried out numerous combinations. That means we will have to be very wary of the bad habits that might creep in during the IPL", Kohli had said, before warning:"That (not picking up bad habit) will take a consistent effort from all the players during the IPL to keep a check on that.

Virat Kohli has said his team is not panicking about the World Cup despite India suffering their first one-day series loss at home since 2015 at the hands of a resurgent Australia.

"The resilience and fight that we showed - being down 2-0 it would have been easy to roll over. we've had our backs against the walls for quite a while now, so I'm really proud of the group".

Regular wickets, a rare failure from Virat Kohli and a weird stumping with Rohit Sharma losing the grip on his bat saw India drop to 6/132 in the 29th over and left Kedar Jadhav to mount a comeback with the tail.

India to clash with Australia in 5th ODI on March 13

Michael Clarke also tweeted his congratulations as Glenn Maxwell and Pat Cummins soaked up the historic win. From 132 for six at one stage, Kedar Jadhav (44) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (46) put on 91 runs for the seventh wicket but it wasn't enough to salvage the situation.

To express solidarity with the Indian soldiers killed in the February 14 attack, Indian cricketers wore camouflaged army caps during the third ODI against Australia - which they lost owing to a thrashing performance again by Usman Khawaja.

Australia has another chance to impress ahead of the World Cup with another five-match series against Pakistan in the UAE starting on Friday March 22.

Australia's Adam Zampa, left, snares the big wicket of India's Rohit Sharma in Delhi. "Usman Khawaja also has been fantastic, having not played much of white-ball cricket, in the last 12 months".

Australia's selectors suddenly have the good sort of headaches, rather than scrambling to find batsmen capable of delivering match-winning innings in the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner.

"I can guarantee that because a World Cup comes every four years and we play IPL every year".

Pell victim says 'hard to take comfort' from sentencing
Judge Kidd said by his offending in such a "risky and brazen" manner, it was inferred Pell was prepared to take such risks. Cardinal George Pell has been jailed for six years after being convicted of sexually abusing two boys in Australia.
