Dominant India thrash Australia in Nagpur, retain top ODI spot

Bumrah fumbled but managed to hold on and ensured Australia receives the first setback.

India is enjoying the general positive feedback in its upcoming project where Hardik Pandya, the biggest recipient of this experimentation phase, is having its own status.

After Rahane's wicket, skipper Virat Kohli contributed with well rounded 35 runs and took India nearly to home, before both him and and Rohit fell prey to Adam Zampa. Bumrah had cost 37 runs in his first five overs but he wrapped up with 2 for 51, including a wicket maiden in the 45th.

"All the bowlers who participated in this tournament have gone with this mindset of taking wickets". As Shikhar Dhawan pulled out of the Australia ODIs due to personal reasons, Rahane got the chance to forge partnerships with Rohit, with Rahul going to the bench. If they loose today's game, the equation will become 4-1 which means Indian cricket team wins four matches out of 5 games.

Sharma, who opened his account with two successive boundaries after 14 deliveries, was the first to get to his fifty with a double off Marcus Stoinis.

"We did it in a couple of games, Bangalore in particular". It is a relaid surface so there wouldn't be much of wear and tear.

Palestine is now INTERPOL member
In Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the decision "seriously harms the chances to achieve peace". General Assembly recognized Palestine as a non-member observer state in 2012 and UNESCO approved it as a full member.

India made three changes in the squad with Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Yuzvendra Chahal making way for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav. "The situation I batted this time was different from what I've been used to, so I've learned a lot, and a pleasure playing against Australia", he said. All-rounder James Faulkner comes in for unwell Kane Richardson.

With the win, India completed a 4-1 series victory.

The visitors chose to bat but failed to put together enough productive partnerships despite a fluent half-century from opener David Warner, who made 53 to follow his century in the previous game. While Warner clinched a sensational century, Finch missed out on his by only six runs.

Live happenings of the fifth one-day-international cricket match to be played between India and Australia will be telecast on Door Darshan channel. They would have wanted to gain some momentum with another victory ahead of the three-match Twenty20 series, starting on Saturday, but a clinical performance from India barely gave them an opportunity.

Both the teams had met totally 127 times and it is the 128th match for them to meet each other.
