Zampa puts India in a spin as Australia seal stunning series win

Zampa puts India in a spin as Australia seal stunning series win

"They were more positive and courageous in the pressure situations, and hence they won those important moments in the game".

"It's huge. Just winning a series in India is huge".

The importance of the five-match series against the world champions - India's last before this year's World Cup - was not lost on Kohli who wanted to assess the team's preparedness for the showpiece event in England and Wales. The last three games were all about giving the fringe guys some chances, but that's not an excuse at all. However, Rohit ultimately perished for 56 off 89 deliveries, which failed to prevent a defeat for the hosts who were defeated by 35 runs in the fifth ODI at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi.

Optimism, it seems, has replaced the despair of just a few months ago. "Would love to come out on top and win that series and there's a long time between now and the World Cup, so for us as a team, we're just enjoying each other's company, enjoying the wins with each other and hopefully we can do that in UAE in the next tour".

It was a reborn Khawaja that forced India's hand on their own turf - even his dismissal in Delhi brought something out in India skipper Virat Kohli, who knew his side was under pressure.

Opener Usman Khawaja's second century of the series guided Australia to 272 for nine on Wednesday, a total their bowlers defended by dismissing India for 237.

Tarrant allegedly took part in terrorist attacks conducted at the Al Noor and Linwood Masjid mosques on Friday afternoon. He also published a 74-page white nationalist manifesto in which he denounced Muslims and called immigrants "invaders".

"It's unbelievable", Finch said. They beat us in Australia, so to come back from those first couple of games, the losses, to come back and win three in a row to win the series, it's a great feeling.

Now it's off to the U.A.E. and the first ODI against Pakistan in Sharjah on March 22.

Performing away from home is a great sign of player confidence, whether that be on green monsters or subcontinent Bunsen burners - and Khawaja took great credence in his good form. It should be a much more pleasant get-together after the end of the ODI series losing streak.

"But the fight that we showed, we've had our backs against the walls for quite a while now so I'm really proud of the group".

India's collapse from 2-0 up to a 3-2 defeat earned his side some harsh criticism in the media on Thursday, with a Times of India headline declaring "The Bubble Bursts", while the Indian Express said "India lose grip, match, series".
