  • India to clash with Australia in 5th ODI on March 13

Eleven weeks out from the Cricket World Cup and the title race is as wide open as ever.

Australia Cricket team all-rounder Glenn Maxwell once again upheld the spirit of the game as he helped Kedar Jadhav to get on his feet during the fifth ODI against Indian National Cricket team at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. That said, India will surely look hard at the decisions they made, because being routed an Australian side missing the likes of Steve Smith and David Warner, may be a cause for concern.

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, right, celebrates the dismissal Australia's Peter Handscomb during the ODI decider. Overall, Australia deserved to win, they played with more passion, hunger and heart.

Kohli's comments are in stark contrast to what he had said before the first T20 against Australia at Vizag last month, where he had specifically asked his World Cup-bound players to not alter their games to suit the frenetic needs of the IPL. What a springboard into a World Cup campaign! "Anyone who gets on a roll at a World Cup, it's very, very hard to stop that team", Kohli told reporters.

The commentary, the published word, the social media chatter was all about how different Indian players auditioned for their tickets for the all-important World Cup starting in May. You see how the West Indies has come along.

Australia's Pat Cummins celebrates the wicket of India's Kedar Jadhav during the final one day worldwide cricket match between India and Australia.

Khawaja scored 100 in a total of 9-272.

It was Australia's first ODI series win in India since 2009, when a Ricky Ponting-led side won a seven-match series 4-2, and follows humbling home Test and ODI series defeats against the same opposition.

Parts of seven states were under blizzard warnings , and 20 states were under some level of high wind alert, Carbin said. And a 300-mile (483-kilometer) section of I-25 was closed from the small city of Buffalo to the Colorado border.

The three confidence-building victories came after Australia had won just four of their past 26 completed one-dayers.

"It's unbelievable, the resilience and fight that we showed", Finch said.

"We always knew that the plans and the style that we wanted to play are all there (and) can win us the World Cup", he added.

West Indies' Carlos Brathwaite farewells England's Ben Stokes during the hosts' series-levelling victory.

His huge tally was enough to earn him both the man of the match and man of the series awards.

The cup buildup now becomes a bit disjointed for most teams with the Indian Premier League set to get under way on Sunday next week.

India are scheduled play their opening World Cup duel against South Africa on June 5, which is a little over three weeks after the IPL ends on May 12. His batting display in Delhi was a reminder of what he brings to the table, with India's tail looking increasingly to be a weak point but more on that later.

But Khawaja took over, scoring a second century for the series and taking his tally to 383 runs at 76.60 in the five matches.
