Glenn Maxwell | Kedar Jadhav | India vs Australia 2019

A 37-run win in the fifth and deciding ODI in Delhi was always in reach of Australia with a competitive score and tight bowling setting up the result.

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, right, celebrates the dismissal Australia's Peter Handscomb during the ODI decider. Usman Khawaja compiled a 106-ball 100-run knock - his 2nd ODI century - while it was leg spinner Adam Zampa, in association with Pat Cummins, that deflated the Indian batting line-up, which for some unusual reason was an experimental one at best.

First time Australia have won an ODI series in India since 2009.

Beaten Indian captain Virat Kohli certainly thinks so, after his side were upset 3-2 at home by Australia who stormed to a 35-run victory in the Delhi one-day global series decider on Thursday (NZT).

Well, what can we say, Major General Ghafoor does love his cricket.

Australia claims historic one-day international series win in India

"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".

Australia's Test series defeat in December to January was their first to India on home soil, and they also went down 2-1 to the visitors in a three-match ODI series.

Before the start of the series, Kohli had said that a couple of places need to be sealed and now it is down to just one man.

First time Australia have chased down more than 334 to win an ODI (produced record chase of 359 in fourth ODI to level the series).

They will rejoin their team-mates in mid-May, ahead of World Cup warmup matches against India and West Indies in the UK.

Michael Clarke also tweeted his congratulations as Glenn Maxwell and Pat Cummins soaked up the historic win.

Other sides like Australia require their stars to be available for the upcoming Pakistan series, before departing to the IPL and returning to Australia in early May for a pre-cup camp. "It's a lot of fun scoring hundreds and even more winning games", Khawaja said.

On the series defeat, Kohli was magnanimous in his praise for the Australian side which had "more hunger". The leg-spinner was taken to the cleaners in Mohali and Jadeja came back into the side presumably for his potential as an all-rounder.

A seventh-wicket stand of 91 runs between Kedar Jadhav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar created some nervous moments for Australia but it was snapped by Cummins in the 46th over.

"They were fearless in the pressure situations compared to our side", Kohli said. "I wouldn't want to be a selector, it's going to be a tough job whittling the team down to 15 and there are obviously a few to come back as well". "Because we know the things that we were wanting to do in these last three games, but purely because now it's only the World Cup after this in the one-day competition".
