Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: India vs Australia, 5th ODI, New Delhi
Jhye Richardson threw his bat around a bit but could take Australia only as far as 272 for 9. It is a competitive score on this wicket but far from what Australia would have wanted after the start they got courtesy Usman Khawaja (100) and Peter Handscomb (52).
WICKET There seems to be no end to Australia's collapse here. Alex Carey is tempted to a drive and is caught behind. Mohammed Shami bags his second wicket.
WICKET Marcus Stoinis chops the ball back on to his stump. Australia are just not able to take their innings forward. He also falls after getting a start. Bowled for 20.
WICKET Kuldeep Yadav is brought back in to the attack to bowl his 10th over. Sandwiched between two sixes is a wicket of Ashton Turner, who fails to clear the straight boundary and is caught by Ravindra Jadeja at long on.
WICKET this is proving to be a really good phase for India. Peter Handscomb also falls, edging to the 'keeper. With both the set batsmen back in the pavilion, they are now left with again having to build some momentum to their innings.
FIFTY Amidst the quick fall of wickets, there is some cheer for Australia. Peter Handscomb has brought up yet another fifty. With Australia having to rebuild again, it will be interesting to see what approach Australia adopt from hereon.
ANOTHER STRIKE The in-form Glenn Maxwell chips his third delivery straight to Virat Kohli at short cover. Ravindra Jadeja bags his second wicket to help India down a bit of Australia's stable platform laid by Usman Khawaja and Peter Handscomb.
WICKET Usman Khawaja falls right after the century. Wasted a good chance to cash in on all the good work. Drives the ball straight to Virat Kohli at short cover. Much-needed wicket for India.
FINALLY! Usman Khawaja has brought up his second century of the series. He wouldn't want this series to end. What a dream run he is having!
For the second time in the series, Usman Khawaja has slowed down considerably in the 90s. It has already been 17 balls in the nervous 90s for him.
Reverse sweeps, straight bat strokes, pulls, flicks - Usman Khawaja has played all around the ground and Indian bowlers don't seem to have an answer to his assault. He is cruising towards his second ODI century.
Australia have paced along well, bringing up their 100 runs in only 19.1 overs, primarily due to Usman Khawaja's half century. Peter Handscomb has been fluent so far.
FIFTY! While Aaron Finch has been scratchy so far, Usman Khawaja has completely dominated the India bowlers and brought up his fourth fifty-plus score in the series.
Jadeja strikes! Aaron Finch's scratchy innings comes to an end. The left-armer gets the ball to move away from him and uproots the offstump.
Australia will be very happy with this start. For the third time this series they've ensured India don't have a wicket in the powerplay. Khawaja looks in great touch, and Finch is slowly getting into his groove. The duo has put on yet another half-century stand.
Usman Khawaja is on fire. His form is reflecting in the flurry of flicks that he has played for boundaries. Delightful strokes! With his fourth boundary of the innings, he has brought up his 300th run in this series.
Usman Khawaja and Aaron Finch have walked out to open the innings for Australia. Bhuvneshwar Kumar with the first new ball.
Aaron Finch has won the toss and elected to bat. Marcus Stonis and Nathan Lyon have come in for Shaun Marsh and Jason Behrendorff. India have included Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja in place of Yuzvendra Chahal and KL Rahul. This, Virat Kohli believes is India's best combination going in to the world cup.
India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah
Australia (Playing XI): Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (wk), Jhye Richardson, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Nathan Lyon
Kaushik says: It's quite cloudy today. It was in pouring in Chandigarh the day after the last match.
Deepu says: The last time India lost three consecutive home ODIs was way back in November 2009 - against Australia.
