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.

Usman Khawaja's century led the visitors after captain Aaron Finch won the toss and made a decision to bat, Australia scoring 272-9.

The hosts were bowled out for 237 as Australia claimed victory. They are a very young side, very inexperienced side but they showed more heart and more confidence in pressure situations.

"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.

"If you go in with all attacking players in these conditions you're going to struggle, because we know the wickets slow up and the quality of (Yuzvendra) Chahal, Kuldeep (Yadav), (Ravindra) Jadeja... these guys they're too good to just walk out and blast them out of the park".

Australian cricket has suffered a torrid year since Smith, Warner and Cameron Bancroft were banned for ball-tampering during a Test last March, an incident that prompted a national outcry.

Virat Kohli, (losing captain): Yeah we thought it was a gettable target. Opener Usman Khawaja once again proved to be the vital member as he scored his second ODI century in the series and second overall. Keeping the Mohali match aside, Dhawan's average in the series reads an abysmal 8.50.

- Pat Cummins took 14 wickets in the series which is the joint-third most for a bowler in a bilateral ODI series against India in India.

Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor on Wednesday took a jibe at India while congratulating Pakistan-born Australian batsman Usman Khawaja for his match-winning performance against the Indian cricket team.

Marcus Stoinis, returning from a thumb injury, and Ashton Turner, another hero from Australia's thrilling fourth ODI win, both contributed 20, and Jhye Richardson added a breezy 29 down the order, but wickets continued to tumble and a score of 272 was ultimately all the tourists could muster.

With the 50-over World Cup coming up in a a couple of months, Katich asserted that the Australians will have plenty of options whey they get down to the task of selecting the squad for the marquee tournament. Australia will now play Pakistan in Dubai, whereas the Indian players will join their franchises ahead of the upcoming IPL season. "Eventually, everyone will know no one wants to miss the bus to the World Cup and cost the team good balance". 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.
