Nagpur ODI: Australia bat first, India recall Bhuvi, Bumrah and Kuldeep

"This team is solid and the future is bright". When Umesh and Shami got their opportunity they were pretty good as well.

Steve Smith expects Australia's one-day global team to come under selection pressure after slumping to an emphatic series defeat in India. And having been thumped by South Africa 5-0 past year, it looked like this series was headed the same direction before that win.

"I wasn't feeling great at the start of the series to be honest", Smith said. Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri are unlikely to bin their efforts so they will be flawless in the ODI bowling unit. It is not easy to play in a situation like this because you are never sure about your place in the team.

Travis Head, who was earmarked to fill the No. 4 spot, failed to make a half-century in all five games with his best score of 42 coming in the final match in Nagpur.

Had it not been for an emergency in Shikhar Dhawan's family, this Mumbai pairing might not have materialised at the top of the order in the series. "Even in the last game, we thought 350-360 would be on the board, but we pulled it back and that's been the hallmark of this bowling unit throughout the tournament".

"We're just not taking our words out in the middle and doing it with action, unfortunately. These things help in building partnership". "The situation I batted this time was different from what I've been used to, so I've learned a lot, and a pleasure playing against Australia", he said. We are losing wickets very consistently and that's not good enough.

"The top four need to stand up and really take control", he added.

It was a disciplined bowling effort led by spinner Axar Patel, who claimed three wickets, that set up India's comfortable victory after restricting the visitors to 242-9.

Earlier, pacer Hardik Pandya earned the breakthrough for India after he dismissed Aaron Finch for 32 runs.

Skipper Steve Smith, who came in next, didn't stay long at the crease and was caught in front of the wickets against Jadhav 16 (25).

Clearly, Axar Patel was the pick of the bowlers among the Indians as he clinched 3 wickets in his spell of 10 overs and gave away only 38 runs at a wonderful economy of 3.8.

Rohit Sharma was awarded Man of the Match for his knock of 125 while Hardik Pandya was declared Man of the Series.
