Cummins proved a nightmare for India's openers during the series, regularly striking with the new ball. "We just have to take better decisions in pressure situations to go far in the World Cup".

Rohit Sharma is one of the two Indian players to have hit more than 350 sixes in global cricket.

Khawaja became the first Australia batsman to score two centuries in a bilateral ODI series against India.

"It's a real danger time in Australian cricket for a lot of individuals because of World Cup selection", Langer said.

Ashley Turner, who made his ODI debut in the opening match of the series, hit a match-winning rush of 84 not out in the fourth ODI to put forth a defense for the World Cup squad. "We're playing well right now". We have got to keep our heads down, keep working hard.

"Aaron Finch remains under pressure but he's doing such a handsome job as captain uniting a team of so many fractured parts, that it would be folly to get rid of him at this stage", Craddock told Fox Sports News.

"It always affects you as a player when you're having a bad trot, but the best leaders that I've ever seen have been the guys that haven't got too high when they've been going too well, and haven't got too low when they've been going poorly".

Australia now travels to Dubai for a five-match ODI series against Pakistan beginning next Friday, the final chance for players to impress before selectors name a 15-man World Cup squad which has to be finalised by April 23. While players of other countries have confirmed they will leave the tournament early to prepare for the World Cup, the Indian players do not enjoy the same luxury due to obvious reasons. Even by their overall awesome record - epitomized by five World Cup triumphs - the latest win has to be something very special.

"I think Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins are shaping an incredible organization, they can likewise contribute with the bat".

The fulcrum of that group hasn't changed all that much over the last two years, but the replacements that have stepped in for those who played on that occasion have had a few question marks over themselves in the run-up to the limited-overs showpiece event.

Perhaps most impressively, this side is nearly indistinguishable to the one that got blown off the park in England nine months ago in Justin Langer's first series as head coach.

India became the second team to win 500-plus ODIs after Australia when they defeated Australia by eight runs at Nagpur in the second ODI.

Former Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting has delivered his verdict on ODI captain Aaron Finch's form slump.

"They beat us in Australia, so to come back from those first couple of losses and win three in a row to win the series is a great feeling".
