He set foot on Indian soil sans any international ODI hundreds but returns to Australia with two. Usman Khawaja, who won the Man of the Series award following Australia’s 35-run win in the series decider at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi on Wednesday, was happy to contribute towards a winning cause.

“It’s a lot of fun scoring hundreds and even more fun winning games. Very good to come back from 0-2 down, and never easy to beat India at home. Very excited. I just played depending on the conditions,” Khawaja, who scored 383 runs in the five ODIs which included two centuries and two fifties, said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

Legspinner Adam Zampa’s three for 46 put the brakes on the Indian run scoring. Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson and Marcus Stonis pocketed two wickets apiece. “Our spinners and our batters adapted really well and at the end of the day, it was a really good team performance. The batters chipped in, the bowling group chipped in, and credit to all the support staff because the atmosphere was really great even after we lost the first two games. We had a lot of fun. Even when we lost the first two games, we had a good vibe in the dressing room,” Khawaja explained.
