Australia beat India by 35 runs to win the fifth and final ODI on Wednesday and secure a 3-2 victory in the series. It is the first ODI series’ win for Australia since January 2017 and the fourth on Indian soil, the last coming in 2009. It was India’s first loss in an ODI series at home since 2015 when they lost 3-2 to South Africa.
Opener Usman Khawaja credited teamwork for Australia´s come-from-behind 3-2 series victory over India after his sublime century helped the tourists win the fifth one-day international by 35 runs.

Khawaja´s 100 off 106 balls guided the tourists to 272 for nine and their bowlers combined to dismiss India for 237 at Delhi´s Feroz Shah Kotla ground. “It´s a lot of fun scoring hundreds and even more fun winning games. Very good to come back from 0-2 down, and never easy to beat India at home,” said an excited Khawaja. “Our spinners, and our batters adapted really well and at the end of the day, it was a really good team performance… Even when we lost the first two games, we had a good vibe in the dressing room,” he added.”
