Australia's 2-year ODI losing streak ends in New Delhi

An impressive showing from legspinner Adam Zampa saw Australia bowl India out for 237

"It has been an unbelievable ride since India arrived in Australia", Langer said. He scored 100 to propel Australia to a defendable 272.

"Just being in these conditions a lot lately, myself and a lot of us, we've played in Dubai, India A series and a lot of the guys played IPL too". It's a tough place to come and play cricket, against a very good side.

"We have been playing good cricket and doesn't feel like a loss". The tourists also ran out 2-0 winners in the preceding T20I series.

India played 11 matches in Australia earlier this summer, squaring off in three Twenty20s, four Tests and three one-dayers. "We're not going to look too far ahead".

Shankar impressed everyone at the top of the order during the T20Is against New Zealand, with his clean hitting and batting prowess.

However, in acknowledging his side's "huge" series win in India, Khawaja conceded his performances haven't locked down his World Cup spot.

Moving forward it doesn't matter. Khawaja raised his helmet, pumped his fist animatedly, acknowledged the applause from the dressing room and hugged Peter Handscomb, who has also raised his ODI game to a new plane on this tour.

"We know how hard it is to win in India", he said. "Hopefully if we do that, everything else will take care of itself", he added.

Having now created a headache for selectors, with Australia's World Cup squad needing to be confirmed by April 23 - and with the returns of Steve Smith and David Warner looming - Khawaja has done what he can to book his ticket to England.

Always looking for a motivational edge, Australia coach Justin Langer asked his charges to cast their minds back to November as they prepared to face India in Delhi. "And when you capitalize on probably every important moment that comes in the game as a side, it gets very hard to go past that side".

"It's about ourselves believing we're good enough and sticking to our game plan. I'm really proud of the group for coming back".

"I'm enjoying the wins more. It's nice to get runs but it always hurts when you don't win", he said.

The belligerence of Kedar Jadhav (44) and Kumar (46) in a 91-run stand for the seventh wicket injected some late drama into proceedings, but the home side ultimately fell some way short in succumbing to a third successive defeat. He's now also the batsman to score most runs against India in a five-match ODI series against India.
