India vs Australia - Highlights & Stats

Australia spectacularly overturned a 0-2 deficit to emerge 3-2 winners, but Kohli was more interested in the big picture for his team. Australia also broke the jinx and won the series after streak of six bilateral ODI series losses.

"We used that as a bit of motivation", Langer said.

It was also Khawaja's third global century since he returned from knee surgery before the summer - a summer where he was repeatedly criticised for his low returns as India's Test side created history on Aussie soil.

Australia sealed a stunning, come-from-behind, 3-2 ODI series victory over India as they beat their hosts by 35 runs in the final one-day global of the series in Delhi on Wednesday.

"The resilience and fight that we showed being down 0-2 it would have been easy to roll over in those small moments in the game, just let them drift away and India win the series", Finch said after Australia's win in the series-deciding final match at Feroz Shah Kotla.

"To get over the line in three of them was a great series all round".

Under Dhoni's captaincy, India won the inaugural World T20 in 2007 and the ICC World Cup in 2011, ending a 28-year drought.

On Wednesday in Delhi, balls too straight or too short were fodder for the 32-year-old in the must-win series decider in Dehli as he cruised to a match-winning hundred.

Usman Khawaja's rich vein of form continued with his second ODI century as Australia amassed 272-9 from their 50 overs, the opener's 106-ball 100 key for the tourists as only Peter Handscomb (52) joined him in passing 30.

It was a reborn Khawaja that forced India's hand on their own turf - even his dismissal in Delhi brought something out in India skipper Virat Kohli, who knew his side was under pressure.

Not just as a reliable batsman and wicketkeeper, Dhoni's guidance in the field was also missed in the last two matches that India lost against Australia.

In their absence, Pat Cummins, who took a series-high 14 wickets, and Jhye Richardson formed a potent new ball attack while Usman Khawaja catapulted himself into World Cup considerations with a stellar performance with the bat.

"To be here in India and winning this series, it's massive". It's been a long season, and we can be proud of the cricket we have played over the last few months. "We are Australia and come the World Cup, we are always favourites" - all this without David Warner, Steve Smith and Mitchell Starc. Moreover, he is at the second place in the list of Australian players scoring most runs in a five-match ODI series by amassing 383 runs in the recently-concluded series.
