Khawaja, bowlers humble India in series decider

New DelhicTypeface:> A fluent century by Usman Khawaja and incisive bowling helped Australia ease to a 35-run series clinching win in the fifth One-Day International on Wednesday. Adam Zampa took three wickets to help dismiss India for 237 on the last ball of their innings after Khawaja’s 100 guided the tourists to 272 for nine at Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla ground. Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson and Marcus Stoinis claimed two wickets each to set up Australia’s first win in a five-match ODI series after being 0-2 down. But the left-handed Khawaja stood out for the tourists with his 100 off 106 deliveries. India were reduced to 132 for six in their reply but Kedar Jadhav, who made 44, and Kumar threatened to pull off the chase during their 91-run stand for the seventh wicket. Cummins got Kumar caught and bowled for 46 and Richardson sent back Jadhav to silence the home crowd. (AFP)
Scores: Australia 272-9 (Khawaja 100, Handscomb 52, Bhuvneshwar 3-48) beat India 237 (Rohit 56, Zampa 3-46) by 35 runs.
