India vs Australia 5th ODI Live Cricket Score: Ravindra Jadeja Breaks The 76-Run Stand Between Aaron Finch And Usman Khawaja


Pant sat out the first three matches of the series, coming in for Dhoni in Mohali, suggesting that the Indian think tank currently thinks that there is not a place in the team for him to be played as a specialist batsman. His quickfire 36 runs was the biggest contribution from the Indian middle-order in the 4th ODI, but all eyes will be on his glovework in Delhi. Except Ambati Rayudu, most of India’s batsmen have managed to get some runs under their belts through the course of the series. It will be interesting to see if Rayudu, who has failed to cross 30 in his last six innings, is given another chance in the decider. (LIVE SCORECARD)

12:35 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog of the fifth and final ODI between India and Australia that is to be played at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, Delhi.

KL Rahul, who has also been showing indifferent form of late, managed to win some trust with his fluent 26-ball knock in the Mohali ODI, and can be expected to play on Wednesday. Also in focus will be Virat Kohli, whose captaincy in the 4th ODI has been widely criticised. In fact, he failed to make a mark with the bat in the match as well, having dropped himself down the order to accommodate Rahul at No 3. For Australia, there is a sudden problem of plenty, considering BBL prodigy Ashton Turner’s heroics in Mohali, Usman Khawaja and Peter Handscomb striking form, and with the World Cup in perspective — the impending return of Steve Smith and David Warner. Having lost the first two ODIs, they have now scored two consecutive victories against the hosts – chasing down a stiff target of 359 on Sunday. Pat Cummins’ five-wicket haul in Mohali will also give the visitors some confidence.


India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rishabh Pant (wk).

Australia: Aaron Finch (captain), Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Turner, Jhye Richardson, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Alex Carey, Nathan Lyon, Jason Behrendorff.
