India vs Australia 5th ODI: Usman Khawaja, Adam Zampa shine as Australia bag ODI trophy
Delhi : A well-placed ton by Usman Khawaja and incisive bowling helped Australia in beating India by a comfortable 35-run difference in the fifth One Day International at the Kotla stadium in Delhi.
Batting first the host posted 272 runs for the loss on nine wickets; with the help of disciplined bowing and Zampa's three wickets the men in yellow dismissed Team India for mere 237 runs.
Usman Khawaja scored 100 runs off 106 deliveries that helped Australia in setting up a defendable target at the low scoring pitch.
On the other hand, no player from India managed to stand tall and score a triple digit. The men in blue were reduced to 132 for six in their reply but Kedar Jadhav, who made 44, and Kumar threatened to pull off the chase during their 91-run stand for the seventh wicket. Cummins got Kumar caught and bowled for 46 and Richardson sent back Jadhav to silence the home crowd.
It was India's final ODI before the World Cup in England and Wales starting May 30.
Australia head to the UAE to play Pakistan later this month.
