No excuse, no panic - Kohli sees big picture in Australia loss

Australia won a thrilling one-day series with India ahead of the World Cup in England and WalesMore

There were several players in the Australian team who produced outstanding performances, most notably opener Usman Khawaja, who was the highest scorer of the series with two centuries and an equal number of half-centuries. On the other hand, it was Australia's first bilateral ODI series win since their victory over Pakistan in 2017.

"He was rewarded for it and he's paying us back in spades", Langer said. We have to live up to the potential we have as a good side.

Australia skipper Aaron Finch praised the fighting spirit of his squad after they managed to come back from being 0-2 down to seal a 3-2 series win over India with a 35-run victory in the final ODI at New Delhi on Wednesday. Those small moments in the game, to just let them drift away and India win the series.

Usman Khawaja's century led the visitors after captain Aaron Finch won the toss and made a decision to bat, Australia scoring 272-9.

The departure of Virat Kohli proved key - as it often does - as Marcus Stoinis got some extra bounce to remove the India captain, who top-edged to Alex Carey for 20. He said that the Indian team is one of the best in the world going into the World Cup 2019, but he is not sure whether they will win the tournament. A couple of spots are still up for grabs and even those are expected to be filled after the ongoing ODI series against Australia.

India's reply struggled for momentum as Australia's seam attack kept things tight early on, but it was a sensational set of six from Zampa (3-46 from 10 overs) that really damaged the hosts.

Not just as a reliable batsman and wicketkeeper, Dhoni's guidance in the field was also missed in the last two matches that India lost against Australia.

Having now created a headache for selectors, with Australia's World Cup squad needing to be confirmed by April 23 - and with the returns of Steve Smith and David Warner looming - Khawaja has done what he can to book his ticket to England.

"To be here in India and winning this series, it's massive".

Kedar Jadhav (44) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (46) threatened to deny Australia with a 91-run partnership, but Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson removed them in successive balls and India ultimately fell some way short on 237 all out, losing their last wicket to the final ball of the innings. Australia will now play Pakistan in Dubai, whereas the Indian players will join their franchises ahead of the upcoming IPL season.

"We always knew that the plans and the style that we wanted to play are all there, can win us the World Cup, win us big series against great teams and India are definitely a great team". Moreover, he is at the second place in the list of Australian players scoring most runs in a five-match ODI series by amassing 383 runs in the recently-concluded series.
