WICKET! Another one gone.

They will look at their openers to deliver the goods yet again. Easy decision for the umpire. Both captains have willingly thrown the ball which being witnessed in the 40th over in a chase with one such move in Bengaluru - when Adam Zampa showcased his tantrum in front of the Hardik Pandya. However, Finch committed a mistake against first-change bowler Hardik Pandya to give India a breakthrough in the 12th over. Aaron Finch departs. Jasprit Bumrah had nearly dropped that catch but to India's good fortune he managed to hold onto it while taking a tumble.

After Bhuvneshwar's brilliant 1st over, Bumrah adds more to the Aussie openers trouble with a strict maiden over.

October 1: Australia won the toss and elected to bat in the fifth and final ODI against India at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium on Sunday. In that match, Australia set a target of 351 for India.

India made three changes, with Jasprit Bumrah, Bhunveshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav all coming into the side.

Kedar Jadhav and Manish Pandey then took India past the post, the latter hitting Australian pacer James Faulkner for two consecutive boundaries to bring up the win in style. He got the wicket of Kohli two times in the series.

"We're going to focus on that and when that's done we'll take care of preparation for the Ashes", Smith said. You've seen it throughout the tournament, whoever has gotten an opportunity they have come and grabbed it and it only shows that we've got guys who can come up at any given point, take up the challenge, perform and just go out and do their job. "And those two wristspinners in the middle overs, and all the batsmen", Kohli said in praise of Indian bowlers. It is a relaid surface so there wouldn't be much of wear and tear.

Asked whether he is part of a team that has the strongest bench strength in a long time, Rohit said, "I can't comment on that (whether we have the strongest bench strength now) as I have been with the Indian team only for the last 10 years".

Team India will aim to cap off another bilateral series in style as the lock horns with Australia in Nagpur.

India were able to keep the run-rate firmly under control, however, and Head's departure to Axar Patel - the pick of the attack with 3-38 - triggered a collapse that saw Australia lose five for 37 at the end of their innings. India's spin numbers were way better than the Australia's.
