Rohit Sharma Topples MS Dhoni & Sachin Tendulkar on Way to Peak 6000

Rohit Sharma climbs to fifth in ICC rankings Warner closes gap on Kohli at the top

Steve Smith is happy with his batting despite his performances during the one-day worldwide series loss to India falling short of his lofty expectations.

At the other end, Rahane also scored his fourth successive half-century of the series - and 23rd overall - off 64 balls. Kedar Jadhav, unbeaten on five, and Manish Pandey, 11 not out, then saw the team team through.

Bumrah bagged two for 51 runs in his 10 overs, while Kumar, Pandya, and Jadhav got one each. He was well supported Kuldeep Yadav who couldn't pick any wicket but kept pressure on the Australian batters. Kedar Jadhav's surprise element with the bowl however has made his selection nearly certain but if Rahul gets a game, Jadhav or Manish Pandey (who hasn't scored a half century in 4 matches in this series) may still have to wait for their next turn.

Jasprit Bumrah (2/51) bounced back brilliantly in the death overs to finish with much improved figures.

Earlier, pacer Hardik Pandya earned the breakthrough for India after he dismissed Aaron Finch for 32 runs.

Batting first was an obvious advantage for Australia, something they hadn't used up too well in the third ODI.

Europa League: Giroud nets Arsenal's 100th goal
Lazio won in an empty home stadium, UEFA punishment for when its fans racially abused a Sparta Prague player in 2016. That was to be the last key moment of the match as Arsenal held on for the victory.

Looking set to get a hundred, Rahane was out lbw to Nathan Coulter-Nile (1-42) in the 23rd over against the run of play.

The Indian all-rounder has been a revelation of the India vs Australia ODI series. In all, he faced 59 balls and scored four fours. Only Shahid Afridi's 63 sixes against Sri Lanka is higher.

It was a change of roles for the openers though, with Rahane leading the charge while Rohit Sharma took his time to settle down.

Rohit Sharma has been on a roll ever since he has come back from a hamstring injury and the stylish batsman says it is important for him to keep performing as the team relies a lot on the openers.

Two quick wickets, Warner and Peter Handscomb, followed Smith's dismissal triggering a middle-order collapse for Australia as they were reduced to 118 for four in the 25th over. Victory in fifth match is quite needful for the foes so as to prove that they're one of the strongest cricket teams in the world.

Australia captain Steve Smith on Sunday conceded that his team deserved to be defeated 1-4 in the One-Day International (ODI) series against India and will need to get consistent performances from the next series onwards.
