  • Australia claims historic one-day global series win in India

Coach Justin Langer also praised Australia's "unbelievable fight and great character", while India skipper Virat Kohli credited the opposition for showing more "passion, hunger and heart than us in the last three games".

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 worldwide of the series in Delhi on Wednesday.

But the victory has greater significance as Australia claimed a stunning come-from-behind series win for a huge confidence boost ahead of the World Cup - nearly exactly a year after a ball-tampering scandal rocked the sport and led to the suspensions of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.

"They were courageous in the pressure situations compared to our side", Kohli said.

It was India's first ODI series defeat at home since losing to South Africa in 2015 as their big guns fell silent on the day when the series was on line.

His huge tally was enough to earn him both the man of the match and man of the series awards.

Australia's selectors suddenly have the good sort of headaches, rather than scrambling to find batsmen capable of delivering match-winning innings in the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner. Marcus Stoinis, returning from a thumb injury, contributed 20 and Jhye Richardson made a breezy 29 down the order.

Australia lost the first two matches and it looked like this would be another walkover for the Indians but the visitors rallied in Ranchi and Mohali to level the series.

"Hopefully it continues for the World Cup".

Australia were placed comfortably at 175 for one and set for a kill in slog overs, but India came back when Bhuneshwar got rid off Khawaja in the last ball of the 33rd over.

Rohit, who is nicknamed Hitman, achieved this feat in his 200th inning during the fifth ODI against Australia at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi.

First time India have been bowled out three times in any ODI series since 2012.

On Wednesday, Australia defended a target of 273 to remarkably complete the turnaround and win the series.
