Australia won by 35 runs

A fluent century by Usman Khawaja and a solid bowling performance helped Australia ease to a 35-run series clinching win in the fifth ODI at Delhi.

Adam Zampa grabbed three scalps to help dismiss India for 237 after Khawaja's 100 off 106 balls took the tourists to 272 for nine.

Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson and Marcus Stoinis claimed two wickets each to set up Australia's first win in a five-match ODI series after being 2-0 down. 

Khawaja’s scores of 50, 38, 104 and 91 in the previous matches made him the stand out performer in the series.

The batting pair of Khawaja and Handscomb stayed firm during a 99-run stand to set-up a strong foundation after skipper Aaron Finch was out on 27. 

Khawaja finally lost his wicket to paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar with a cover drive that was safely caught by skipper Virat Kohli.

Ravindra Jadeja returned to get the dangerous Glenn Maxwell for one and Handscomb was caught behind off Shami as Australia slipped to 182-4.

The Aussies kept losing wickets but Richardson played a useful cameo of 29 off 21 deliveries before being run out on the final ball of the 50th over.

India were reduced to 132 for six in their reply to Australia’s 273 but Kedar Jadhav, who made 44, and Kumar threatened to pull off the run-chase during their 91-run stand for the seventh wicket.

Cummins got Kumar caught and bowled for 46 and Richardson sent Jadhav packing.

Earlier, Cummins drew first blood after getting Shikhar Dhawan caught behind for 12 by getting the ball to angle across the lefty.

But Stoinis got the big wicket of Kohli, as the star batsman edged a cross-seam delivery to wicketkeeper Alex Carey for 20.

Spinner Nathan Lyon and Zampa applied the brakes and combined to get a wicket each as the hosts slipped to 120 for four midway into the innings.

Rohit Sharma, who survived a dropped chance on 53, could not capitalise on the spill by Glenn Maxwell off Zampa as he got out to the same bowler three runs later.

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.A fluent century by Usman Khawaja and a solid bowling performance helped Australia ease to a 35-run series clinching win in the fifth ODI at Delhi.
