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

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

It was India's first loss in an ODI series at home since 2015 when they lost 3-2 to South Africa. Australia next head to the UAE and will take on Pakistan in a five-match series, both sides' last engagement before that summer tournament.

India's victory chances were then effectively snuffed out with Rohit's dismissal for 56, as he needlessly charged out of his crease attempting an ugly hoick off Zampa and was stumped by Alex Carey. It was way back in September 1982 against Sri Lanka when they overhauled a 278-run target.

It is only the fifth instance that a team has won a series after being down 0-2.

Rohit was again slow off the blocks, hardly rotating the strike but found some elegant boundaries off the pacers. But the turning point came when Kohli played a rare poor shot to chase a wide delivery off Marcus Stoinis and was caught behind. He added 53 runs for the second wicket with Rohit.

Incidentally, Australia were the last visiting side to beat India in three consecutive ODI games at home.

He smashed leg-spinner Zampa for a six but was undone by Lyon, who had the left-hander caught at first slip. Handscomb and Khawaja's plan against the spinners was simple - whenever the ball was pitched up, they went for sweep and the duo went about their business in a measured manner, taking their team past the 150-run mark by the 27th over. Their 91-run stand off 103 balls, however, showed that there were no demons in the wicket.

President Donald Trump said he trusted Kim's pledge to him that he would not resume nuclear or missile testing. Bolton told Raddatz that Trump is " open to a third summit " with Kim but that nothing has been scheduled.

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.

Khawaja took a single off Yadav to bring up his hundred but fell soon after to Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3 for 48), triggering a mid-innings collapse for Australia who had been cruising at 175 for 1 in the 33rd over. Khawaja drove an outside off stump delivery straight to the hands of Kohli at short extra cover.

Ravindra Jadeja replaced Yuzvendra Chahal in the Indian playing eleven while K L Rahul made way for Mohammad Shami.

The Indian vice-captain had a disastrous start in the five-match series against Australia as he managed to score just 51 runs from first three matches.

It turned out to be a forgettable day for chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, who bled 74 runs in his 10 overs, although he dismissed risky Ashton Turner (20) cheaply.
