Usman Khawaja stars again as Australia seal comeback series win over India

Glenn Maxwell | Kedar Jadhav | India vs Australia 2019

Suddenly, Australia looked to be balanced, confident and capable, able to win game on three different pitches and in a variety of scenarios. It was a momentous comeback, led by the captain and his trusty opener Usman Khawaja who put some a couple of mind-blowing performances. This was Australia's first ODI series win in India since 2009. After the Indian leadership's lies about supposed casualties in the Balakot airstrike were debunked by their very own analysts and the worldwide community, the Indian cricket team chose to wear army caps during the third ODI against Australia to honour the soldiers killed in the February 14 attack.

The leg-spinner made life hard for Virat Kohli throughout the tour and even got rid of him thrice - once in the T20I series and twice in the ODI series.

Australia were placed comfortably at 175 for one and set for a kill in slog overs, but India came back when Bhuneshwar got rid off Khawaja in the last ball of the 33rd over.

Australia suffered a mini-collapse, though, and lost three wickets for seven runs in the space of 21 balls. The tourists also ran out 2-0 winners in the preceding T20I series. The right-hander not only missed the ball but also lost his bat, which slipped out of his palms, leaving Alex Carey with a simple stumping.

For Australia, Marcus Stoinis was brought in for Shaun Marsh and Nathan Lyon replaced Jason Behrendorff.

Ashton Turner, who starred with 84 not out as Australia chased down a record 359 to win the preceding game, scored 20 on Wednesday after being preferred ahead of Shaun Marsh. There had been scarcely a break since a draining home summer, and in the case of Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis, all participants in the Big Bash League final, only a few snatched hours of sleep before they were on the plane to India.

It was his dismissal of Kohli in the third ODI that helped Australia notch their first win in the series. The left-hander scored the first two centuries of his ODI career to top the run-scoring charts with 383 at 76.6.

After the first three ODIs, India rested MS Dhoni for the remaining matches - a decision disapproved by many fans.
