India thrash Australia by five wickets, clinch series, Highlights
Hardik Pandya’s blistering 78 runs and Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane's solid knocks helped India beat Australia by five wickets to seal the five-match series 3-0. Virat Kohli and team restricted Australia to 293/6 after a superb comeback by the bowlers in the death overs. In reply, India opener Rohit Sharma (71) and Ajinkya Rahane (70) gave hosts a solid start in run-chase as they stitched together a 100 plus-run partnership. Australia, however, fought back with couple of quick wickets but Hardik Pandya (78), who was promoted to No.4 position, had other plans as he powered the Men in Blue to a five-wicket victory.
