    Congratulations Team India for reaching the No.1 spot in ICC ODI Rankings

    20:44 PM

    India win by 7 wickets and reach the No.1 spot in ICC ODI rankings. India have won the series 4-1. That's convincing!

    0 0 0 -- three dot balls from Faulkner. Common Manish, finish it off in style! Yes, he listens to me and smacks on past long-on for a boundary. That was a slower cutter from Faulkner but Pandey read it and found the gap. And that's it. Another whip to the long-on region. India win by 7 wickets and reach the No.1 spot in ICC ODI rankings. India have won the series 4-1. That's convincing!

    Rohit now has 29 sixes in ODIs in 2017. He has gone past his teammate Hardik Pandya, who has 28.

    20:32 PM

    OUT! Virat Kohli c Marcus Stoinis b Adam Zampa 39 (55)

    Now Kohli departs. Very similar to how he got out at Bengaluru. Looking to clear the long on, he finds Stoinis there. 2 quick wickets for India.

    OUT! Virat Kohli c Marcus Stoinis b Adam Zampa 39 (55)

    20:29 PM

    OUT! Rohit Sharma c Nathan Coulter-Nile b Adam Zampa 125 (109)

    What a shame! Rohit's outstanding knock comes to an end. Looking to clear deep midwicket, he doesn't connect Zampa's short ball and finds the fielder. A quality knock from the Indian opener.

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Rohit is toying with the Australian bowling. Smacks Faulkner over long on for a maximum. India are making it look very easy. It's not easy out there to bat. It's hot and the wicket is two-paced. This has been a brilliant knock from Rohit.

    20:23 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    There's an appeal against Kohli for a caught behind. Umpire says 'not out' but Australia review only to lose it. There's no bat. In fact it's a wide. Faulkner remains wicket-less.

    Like fans around the world, even Wade's fate seems to troll him. A couple of overs back, he took a brilliant catch only to find the batsman hadn't edged that and now he fails to complete a take, it's actually an edge. So a drop. Rahane finds the gap behind square for a boundary. Now a huge appeal and umpire gives it. India have reviewed the decision. It's just clipping and Rahane has to walk way. Umpire's call prevails. That's Coulter-Nile's 10th wicket of the series. Another round of Coulter-Nile vs Kohli. OUT! Ajinkya Rahane lbw b Nathan Coulter-Nile 61 (74)

    19:06 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Rahane smacks it straight over Faulkner for another brilliant boundary. He gets his fourth consecutive fifty. This is supreme exhibition of batting. Rahane's 23rd ODI fifty. To cement his place in the side, he needs to convert it to a century.

    19:00 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    It took him 15 balls to get off the mark. But Rohit races to fifty before Rahane. It has taken him 52 balls. He is an ODI monster, isn't it? Now Stoinis drops it short and Rohit executes a brilliant short-arm jab for a boundary.

    18:57 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Play resumes after drinks. Australia have used 6 bowlers. India need 158 from 198 balls and have 10 wickets in hand. Pretty much India's game to lose here. Head has bowled well. He is getting the length right, also he a good control. Rohit comes down the wicket, goes aerial and clears Warner at mid-on for a six. First one of India's innings. The following ball, Rohit steps out again, makes it a full toss and drives it to a four. Rahane was 47, Rohit was 39. In matter of 2 balls, he moves to 49.

    18:43 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Zampa needs to get his length right. He needs to stick to one plan -- either save runs or get wickets. It should be the latter in this case. He bowls a full toss to Rahane, who has no hesitation in driving it to a boundary. Nine from the over. India move to 79 after 15 overs. Yet again a solid start.

    18:41 PM

    18:37 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Zampa will hold the key for Australia today. He needs to make the slowness of the surface count. He beats Rahane with his flight. Inside edge gets the batsman one. And now, Rohit is beaten, there's an outside edge for a boundary. Zampa needs more luck. Rohit waits for the bad ball. Shorter delivery and he pulls it away for four. 12 from the over but Zampa had his moments...

    18:26 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Rahane welcomes Faulkner into the attack by leaning forward and driving the ball to the boundary. Fantastic shot. Faulkner has the habit of being expensive but he is also a wicket-taker. Australia are missing Kane Richardson today. Richardson is sick. He took 7 wickets from 3 ODIs in this series.

    18:19 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Full and wide from Coulter-Nile and Rohit plays another gorgeous drive for a boundary. Stoinis will continue from the other end.

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Rahane and Rohit are competing on the 'glamour' parameter. If Rohit struck 2 delightful hits in the previous over, Rahane gorgeously punches through the cover region for a boundary.

    18:04 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Frustration showing. Rohit almost departed for a 14-ball duck. Looking to slog on the leg, he got an inside edge to his pad as the ball lobbed in the air. Cummins made a great effort to run straight and take catch but it falls short. Rohit follows that with a lovely straight drive for a boundary. And now goes aerial for another boundary.

    18:00 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    One from the Coulter-Nile over. Rohit is still on 0, he has faced 12 balls now.

    17:56 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Rahane is little early on that short. Bit uppish but still goes for a straight boundary. Meanwhile, Rohit is yet to get off the mark.

    17:48 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Rahane is struck on the pad in the first ball from Cummins. Australia make a huge appeal. Will they go for review? No, they don't. David Warner rightly intervenes, says the 'height' is an issue here. Rahane beautifully flicks the third ball to the boundary. Isn't he a delight to watch? Just leans forwards and guides it by turning the wrist. Five from the over.

    17:44 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Rohit is 92 short of 6,000 ODI runs.

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    The Indian batsmen are out in the middle. Rohit has been in sublime form this series and so has Rahane. The start will be important from India's point of view.

    17:23 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    This has been another brilliant bowling performance by India. Very good use of cutters, slower balls and reverse swing by the pacers at the death. The spinners also used the slowness of the surface well.

    17:24 PM

    OUT! Nathan Coulter-Nile b Bhuvneshwar Kumar 0 (1)

    Coulter-Nile to face the final ball. Bhuvi gets one, finally. He cleans up the tail. Australia were 190 for 4 after 40 overs, they finish at 242 for 9. The last 10 overs costed 52 and they lost 5 wickets. Brilliant death bowling. OUT! Nathan Coulter-Nile b Bhuvneshwar Kumar 0 (1)

    16:56 PM

    OUT! James Faulkner run out (Hardik Pandya/MS Dhoni) 12 (17)

    The over from Bhuvi goes -- 1 1 1 1 1. Faulkner attempts 2 and Pandya rockets it to Dhoni's gloves. Easy run out.

    OUT! James Faulkner run out (Hardik Pandya/MS Dhoni) 12 (17)

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Well, Pandya has dropped a simple chance at long on. Faulkner had hit that one straight to the fielder. Bhuvi denied of a wicket. Agree with Michael Clarke, "You will be catching 99 out of 100 of those catches." This was that 100th time.

    16:52 PM

    OUT! Matthew Wade c Ajinkya Rahane b Jasprit Bumrah 20 (18)

    All happening out there. Wade looks for a wild slog and loses the bat. The bat too was surprised with that six it seems. He finally holes out to extra cover. Bumrah finishes his spell 10-2-51-2. Only 5 from the over.

    What happened there? Faulkner wanted 2. There was a mix-up and Wade denied. Rahane made a rocket throw and Bumrah let go of it thinking it would be a direct hit. It was too full, a half volley throw and they are difficult to collect. Not good cricket from India.

    16:46 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Unbelievable! Wade has just struck a straight six. Ok. I will refrain myself from trolling him any further. But he has been miserable with the bat off late. Not a bad job from Australians in this over, they got 12. Another 18 needed from 12 balls to get to the 250-mark.

    16:42 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Only 6 from the 47th over. 30 from the next 3 can take them to 250. At one stage when Finch and Warner were batting, 350 as on cards.

    16:37 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Here comes the specialist. Bhuvi and Bumrah will finish it off. More overs to Jadhav means that Bhuvi will bowl a maximum of 8 overs. Bhuvi goes for only 3 from his comeback over. What's wrong with Wade? He missed a full-toss. This is poor cricket from him, at least get the singles. Well they have Brad Haddin as their fielding coach, he might considering taking up this role.

    16:33 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    A maiden wicket from Bumrah. Only a bye there. Bumrah 1-1-0-0, after 4 overs, 4-1-34-0

    Now 8-1-40-1 Good comeback!

    16:29 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    The stage is set for Faulkner. He has a liking for these conditions. Can he make a difference? Oh boy, he gets an edge and Dhoni takes a very good low catch. Or does he? No it just falls short of him. It's difficult to predict those even as a fielder.

    16:26 PM

    OUT! Marcus Stoinis lbw b Jasprit Bumrah 46 (63)

    Bumrah strikes. Stoinis is LBW. Or is he? Australia have reviewed. Last one went in their favour. Well that is umpire's call. Stoinis departs, finally. He made it a habit to remain not outs.

    GONE!!!!

    GONE!!!! Head is bowled up for 42 by Akshar. Finally a breakthrough for Akshar as the crucial partnership ios broken. Where do the Aussies go from here?

    It's rare when Dhoni gets it wrong on DRS. Not a very good day from him in the office. Tough catches spilled and now a wrong call. India lose their DRS.

    15:41 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Head goes for a wild sweep, misses and the ball finds way to Dhoni's gloves. Kuldeep isn't very excited but Dhoni is. India go for the review. Doesn't seem to be an edge. Third umpire concludes, "Daylight between bat and ball." Not a very good day for Dhoni in the office.

    15:32 PM

    13 runs from the over.

    Almost a repeat. Again a thick edge from Stoinis and its gets past Dhoni. It was Dhoni's catch. A tough one but it finds the gap between keeper and the first slip. Finally, the Aussies go after Jadhav, Head sweeps one away from four, and then gets a single. Now Stoinis uses his feet and targets the sight-screen. A straight six -- the first of the day. 13 runs from the over.

    15:25 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    India will get to 120 ratings if they manage to win this. South Africa will remain at 119, which means India will be the No.1 ODI side. They look on course to do so. Jadhav has been brilliant today...

    15:17 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    What was that? Stoinis play for a straighter one, there is slight turn from Akshar. He gets a thick edge for a boundary. That bisects Dhoni and the slip fielder.

    15:15 PM

    Highlights, IND vs AUS, 5th ODI: India seal series 4-1, climb No.1 spot in rankings

    Head gives Australia its first boundary in eight overs. The first batter who has used his feet against Jadhav. Confident stroke down the ground for a boundary. Jadhav has now bowled 7-0-29-1. These 2 have a big responsibility if Australia have post a challenging total.

    15:10 PM

    OUT! Peter Handscomb c Ajinkya Rahane b Akshar Patel 13 (17)

    Now Handscomb departs trying to execute a slog sweep. The situation was tailor-made for Handscomb to cement his place in ODIs. He gets a top edge and Rahane running back from slip, makes these catches look simple. Stoinis walks out.

    OUT! Peter Handscomb c Ajinkya Rahane b Akshar Patel 13 (17)

    15:02 PM

    OUT! David Warner c Manish Pandey b Akshar Patel 53 (62)

    Jadhav has now sneaked out five overs, giving away just 21 and getting the prized scalp of Smith. A year back, when he made it to the side for the ODIs against New Zealand, he only got into the XI at the expense of an ill Suresh Raina. He grabbed the opportunity when Dhoni gave him the ball. He had only 1 wicket in domestic cricket, and now he bowls regularly. As I write this, Warner perishes trying to clear the long on. Akshar gets a wicket. The pressure was building on the Australian vice-captain.

    14:55 PM

    OUT! Steven Smith lbw b Kedar Jadhav 16 (25)

    Jadhav continues... Before the match, he said, "I really don't know how I get wickets". Wow, and he gets another. He gets the prized wicket of Steven Smith. It was Warner the earlier day. Loses concentration, goes for the sweep and misses. That was plumb. Handscomb walks out.

    OUT! Aaron Finch c Jasprit Bumrah b Hardik Pandya 32 (36)

    Pandya continues. Warner gets 2 and then a single. Finch tries to clear mid-off, mis-times and finds Bumrah, who almost spills it but manages to cling onto the ball. Good work by the Gujarat boys. He was looking in ominous touch. Big blow to the Aussies. Steven Smith comes out and the Australian skipper gets off the mark with a glorious cover drive for four.

    Hardik Pandya is into the attack. He goes for 10. Bhuvi is now replaced by Kuldeep. Can Warner avenge those comments? Only 3 from it.

    Bumrah, this match so far: 1st over - Maiden, 2nd over - 9, 3rd over - 12, 4th over - 13. Will Bumrah continue? No, it's Pandya...

    What a shot! Bhuvi to Warner, sweetly punched off the back foot for a boundary as the 2 batters bring up the 50-run stand, yet again.

    Australians have targeted Bumrah. He is leaking runs at the moment. Perhaps India missed a trick by playing local boy Umesh Yadav. Bumrah started with a maiden. His fourth over goes -- 1 4 4 0 4 0. 13 from the over. He has given away 34 from his next 3. This over we saw 3 gorgeous strokes on the leg side off Finch's bat.

    Warner is executing the short-arm jabs very well. Gets a 2, then brilliantly gets one over midwicket for a boundary and then off-drives for a four to end the over. Good going from Warner.12 from the Bumrah-over. Australia have raced to 33.

    Now Warner plays a delightful flick off hips for a boundary of Bhuvi. He must be relieved. Bhuvi has really tormented his Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper in recent times. Finch with 229 runs from 3 ODIs this series is already the leading run scorer. Seven from the over.

    Bumrah has now bowled 8 dot balls on a row against Finch. Now bowls a short ball, and Finch breaks the shackle with a pull over midwicket for a boundary. Finch goes for another pull, doesn't connects well but the fast outfield fetches him another boundary in the deep square-leg region. Nine from the over.

    Bumrah starts with a maiden. He had a strong off-side field for Finch. A struggling Warner escapes the strike off Bhuvi. Struck on the pad after an inside edge. Well, Warner is surely in serious trouble against Bhuvi...

    Another round of Bhuvi vs Warner. Warner starts with 2. It was on his pads. He is bang on target now. Here comes the edge on the fourth ball. Thick outside edge from Warner and just drop short of Rohit, who is at second slip.

    With the No.1 ranking in the sight, India have gone for the kill and have brought back Bhuvi and Bumrah. A bit unfortunate for Umesh who claimed a 4-for and this is his home ground.

    Virat Kohli:

    Virat Kohli: "We need to get out processes right. The last game we played good game of cricket but Australia were better. The pitch looks hard. We would have batted as well. It is a relaid surface. There would not be wear and tear. The last time we played here we chased 350. So we have happy memories on this ground. Three changes from our end - Umesh, Shami and Chahal are out, Bhuvi, Bumrah and Kuldeep are back."

    13:03 PM

    We have one change, Kane Richardson is sick and James Faulkner comes back in.

    Steven Smith: "We are going to have a bat. It looks pretty dry, hopefully it would slow on as the game goes by. It was nice to win the last one, I thought we batted pretty well to get 300 on the board. We have one change, Kane Richardson is sick and James Faulkner comes back in."
