Rohit ton gives India comprehensive series win

Watch MS Dhoni tries to hide his face out of embarrassment

Rohit who pulled a Nathan Coulter-Nile (1/42) delivery over midwicket to bring up his 14 ODI century, also completed his 6,000 ODI runs during the knock. But his job was made just a touch easy by the bowlers responding well to another tough situation.

Australia 242/9 (David Warner 53, Marcus Stoinis 46; Axar Patel 3/38) lost to India 243/3 (Rohit Sharma 125, Ajinkya Rahane 61) by seven wickets.

The expensive Zampa gained belated rewards by having Rohit and Kohli caught in the deep, but Jadhav (5 not out) and Manish Pandey (11 not out) saw India over the line easily. Apart from Patel, Jaspreet Bumrah took two wickets. Bumrah had cost 37 runs in his first five overs but he wrapped up with 2 for 51, including a wicket maiden in the 45th.

Rahane has been a stand-in opener for India, as Virat Kohli and the team management prefer to go with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan in limited overs cricket.

In the spin department, spinner Axar Patel took the field alongside Kuldeep Yadav as Yuzvendra Chahal is unwell.

Virat Kohli (39) then joined Sharma in the middle and put on 99 runs for the second wicket. India defended 252 with Kuldeep taking a hat-trick.

Australia captain Steve Smith won the toss and opted to bat first, with David Warner looking for a second successive century after reaching the three-figure milestone last start in his 100th ODI.

After leading the team to their sixth consecutive bilateral series victory, a satisfied Kohli said he was satisfied wit the overall performance of the team.

"Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah have been outstanding for us".

Rohit hailed the bowlers for restricting Australia to 242 which hardly proved a challenge for the Indian batsmen. Both Tendulkar and Haynes played over 50 more ODIs versus Australia compared to Rohit's 28 innings so far. "One boundary here and there doesn't make a difference. We have got guys, who can come up at any given point, take up the challenge, and just go out and do their job", Sharma said.

However, Sunil Gavaskar, who presented the pitch report on Sunday, promises a better wicket. We've done really well in the series, capitalizing in the first three games and coming back hard. That has been the hallmark of this bowling unit throughout the tournament.

"A lot of our players have played a lot of cricket in India, can't use that as an excuse. These things help in building partnership". He got to his hundred with a six off Coulter-Nile. In all, he faced 59 balls and scored four fours.

"Here the ground is big and spinners had a more important role to play".
