Team India had already clinched the Five One Day Series and move to the no:1 position with rating 120 and 5764 points in the ICC ODI Ranking after winning the last ODI match against Australia.

Australia´s David Warner hit a belligerent century against India to mark his 100th one-day global on Thursday.

India tried to replicate Australia's aggressive start with Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma both posting quick-fire 50's.

M.S. Dhoni's departure on the last ball of the 48th over was the final nail in the coffin. While other national teams are all having this record; New Zealand (1), England (1), Pakistan (2), West Indies (2), Sri Lanka (2), South Africa (5), and Australia (6).

Without calling the Indian skipper stopped in his tracks and tried to get back into his ground, resulting in Kohli and Sharma scrambling towards the same end. Opposites Australia lost three close games and are now playing for pride.

Further compounding issues, Ashton Agar's hand injury rules the young spinner out for the rest of the series.

Jadhav started slowly but then picked up pace and matched Pandya stroke for stroke. To be appreciated for our skills, obviously coming from an Indian cricket legend (Gavaskar), it feels good because he has seen a lot of Indian teams over the past few years.

Yadav was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets, while Jadhav chipped in with one.

Kedar Jadhav (1/38 in 7 overs) also did his bit to put brakes on the scoring after the openers raised visions of a mammoth total. Chahal, who has been India's go-to man to break partnerships, was hammered by Finch and Warner. "If we can keep winning and get ahead of them in terms of win/loss for the tour that would be the goal", Richardson said, as quoted by cricket.com.au.

A 231-stand from Warner and Aaron Finch - the fifth biggest first-wicket partnership in ODIs for Australia - set a superb foundation after Steve Smith won the toss and chose to bat.

Kohli was commenting after India lost the fourth ODI by 21 runs. Handscomb made sure that the series got its first 300-plus score though, smashing 43 off 30 balls with three fours and a six.

Mathew Wade (3) and Stoinis remained unbeaten.
