Australia's 2-year ODI losing streak ends in New Delhi

Australia's 2-year ODI losing streak ends in New Delhi

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

A clearer picture will emerge after the ODI series against Pakistan in United Arab Emirates later this month, but the manner of their victory against India makes Finch confident of their title defence at the World Cup. Nobody is panicking because we know the things, we were looking to do in the last three games. Pathan hopes this loss will not affect the morale of the team ahead of the World Cup.

Khawaja's unlikely bumper run has formed the centerpiece of Australia's unexpected series win.

Optimism, it seems, has replaced the despair of just a few months ago. A couple of spots are still up for grabs and even those are expected to be filled after the ongoing ODI series against Australia.

Despite being defending and five-time World Cup winners, the Australians finished their 2018 ODI matches with a loss in Hobart to South Africa, part of a 2-1 series defeat and their 13th ODI loss of the year.

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.

Usman Khawaja struck his second century in three matches - and a third-straight score of 90 plus - as the visitors first put 272-9 on the board, before an Adam Zampa-led attack skittled India for 237 in reply, the legspinner claiming 3-46 from his 10 overs.

The bridge was commonly known as "Kasab bridge" as the 26/11 Mumbai attack terrorist passed through it during the terror strike. The part of the bridge at Cama Hospital end collapsed and at least 34 people were admitted to the hospital after the incident.

Ponting, who won two World Cups as captain, complimented Finch's tactical acumen and said, "Tactically what I've seen, he's looked sharp", he said.

Australia lost the opening two games, but Wednesday's triumph rounded off a stunning turnaround and ensured they won a bilateral ODI series of at least five matches from 2-0 down for the first time.

Now it's off to the U.A.E. and the first ODI against Pakistan in Sharjah on March 22. "Must enjoy ourselves and play because we enjoy the game", Kohli said in the post-match press conference.

"To win this series, particularly after being 2-0 down, is a brilliant achievement.it means a lot to us". It should be a much more pleasant get-together after the end of the ODI series losing streak.

Australian players celebrate the dismissal of India's Rohit Sharma during the final one day worldwide cricket match between India and Australia in New Delhi, India, Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

Khawaja, who was named man of the series, said it was a sweet revenge after the home ODIs defeat to India early this year.
