Rohit Sharma smashed his 29th ODI century and Virat Kohli starred in another successful chase as India beat Australia by seven wickets in the final ODI on Sunday to complete a 2-1 series victory. Steve Smith's first ODI hundred in three years had propelled Australia to 286/9 earlier.
India had a point to prove against Australia, having lost the home series to them in March last year. The 10-wicket drubbing in Mumbai did not deter India as they posted emphatic victories in Rajkot and also in Bengaluru, where they overhauled the 287-run target with 15 balls to spare.

Lost three tosses. Lost the first game comprehensively. Bounced back to win the series. Two must-win games back to back. Style and substance. Well done, Team India 🇮🇳👏👏 #IndvAus
