  • Australia target World Cup win after stunning India

The former Aussie captain also said it may be a blessing Finch has been completely out of sorts recently, because he would rather go through a rough patch now with enough time to recover than in the middle of the World Cup. With the 383 runs scored in the five matches he now has 966 runs with two hundreds, his average has leapt to 42 and his strike rate then just over 70 is now 83.

Kohli expects that his players will reflect on the mistakes made during the series and take corrective measures going into the World Cup. Those small moments in the game, to just let them drift away and India win the series.

A lot has been said about the chopping and changing the team management made for nearly every match - even to te point of resting MS Dhoni - but it could not be helped as they were finding the right combination for the World Cup. "We're playing well right now".

Despite missing banned batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner, Australia bounced back from a 0-2 deficit to clinch the series with a comfortable 35-run win in the final ODI in New Delhi on Wednesday. We can be proud of the cricket that we've played in the last few months.

"Aaron Finch remains under pressure but he's doing such a attractive 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.

Kohli and the Indian players will now head to their respective franchises for the Indian Premier League (IPL) which gets under way on March 23. "Hopefully, if we do that, everything else will take care of itself", he added.

Moreover, this was India's first ODI series defeat under the leadership of Virat Kohli at home.

Australia target World Cup win after stunning India

There were several players in the Australian team who produced outstanding performances, most notably opener Usman Khawaja, who was the highest scorer of the series with two centuries and an equal number of half-centuries.

"The last three games, the idea was to give the guys on the bench and the fringe guys a bit of game time as well and just put them in those positions and see how they react".

"I think Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins are forming a great partnership, they can also contribute with the bat".

Talking about his own terrific form in this series, Khawaja said it was very satisfying to play a part in the team's victory. But never take it for granted to be honest.

"I thought that would have been a good spot for them to slip back in because they're definitely available for the last two games". It's nice to get runs but it always hurts when you don't win", he said."From a personal point of view it's huge.

"Although he's recently gone through a real tough time, if he can get through the other side of that before the World Cup, it could be - as hard as it sounds on him - it nearly could be ideal timing".

Khawaja, who was named man of the series, said it was a sweet vengeance after the home ODIs annihilation to India early this year. To be here in India and winning this series, it's massive.
