As an opener, I look to perform at all times: Rohit Sharma

Until the last day of the five-match ODI series, India were about to win it without a single centurion. The opener finds Manish Pandey at long on, who takes an easy catch.

Two overs earlier, Rohit had taken a single to become the ninth Indian to cross 6,000 runs.

The tourists' hopes of defending their total were significantly dented when Rohit, who accelerated to 125 from 109 deliveries after a cautious start, shared 124 for the first wicket with Ajinkya Rahane (61).

Finch misses out on a close half century as Hardik Pandya gets India their first breakthrough. But two overs later, Jasprit Bumrah (2-51) trapped him lbw, this time a DRS review could not save him.

India fought back well through Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane, and while Hardik Pandya chipped in with another decent effort, the Aussie bowlers returned well towards the last 15 overs to wrest back the initiative. In that Matches, India has won 44 matches, Australia has won 73 matches and they did not play 10 matches due to rain.

The Australians struggled against the Indian spin attack.

Head, who made 42, and Stoinis, who scored 46, failed to convert their starts into bigger scores as Australia totally lost steam in the final five overs.

Leishman extends advantage as Rose and Day lurk
Leishman already has 18 birdies in 36 holes at Conway Farms, where the scoring average was a shade under 69 through two rounds. So, hopefully I can keep doing what I'm doing. "We were trying to land it 182 (yards) and I kind of pushed it".

Aaron Finch and David Warner have eased Australia's batting stress as they rose to the occasion in the 4 ODI with Finch scoring 94 and Warner scoring a fabulous century in his 100 ODI, at Bengaluru. Only Shahid Afridi's 63 sixes against Sri Lanka is higher.

Matthew Wade (20) reached double figures for the first time in the series but it wasn't enough as he holed out in the deep off Bumrah again.

Going into the final match, both teams still have a lot to play for.

Travis Head and Stoinis tried hard to counter a persistent Indian bowling with their 87-run fifth-wicket partnership, but their departure spelt further trouble for the visitors.

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. The venue of this match is at Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground, Nagpur.

Rohit Sharma smashed 125 to guide India to a comfortable seven-wicket victory against Australia in the fifth and final one-day worldwide in Nagpur on Sunday, for a 4-1 series victory.
