Pat Cummins was the pick of the bowlers for Australia with 5-70 off 10 overs that’s his first 5 wicket haul in ODI’S. Adam Zampa continues his great bowling throughout the series taking 1-57 off 10 overs.

Setting Australia 359 to win the run chase got off to a very shaky start losing 2-12, until a 192 partnership between Usman Khawaja 91 and Peter Handscomb 117 who recorded his maiden ODI century. Then entered Ashton turner, in just his 2nd game Turner came out and blastered 84 off 43 balls including 5 fours and 6 sixes to win the game for Australia. 359 is Australia’s highest successful ODI run chase. With the Series tied at 2-2 there is plenty to play for both teams, especially Australia. No Australian team has ever come back from 0-2 down in a five – match ODI series and won. The fifth and final ODI will be in held in Delhi on Wednesday to decide the series.
