India crushed Australia by 7 wickets in the 5th ODI at Nagpur on Sunday. The Men in Blue clinched the series by 4-1 and became the number 1 team in latest ICC ODI rankings.
After restricting Australia to 242/9, India began the chase with a record third consecutive century stand between Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma which broke the spirit and hope of the Aussies who were trying to defend the small target. Rahane was out for 61 but Rohit continued and registered his 14th ODI ton before falling for 125 towards the end of the innings.

Hugely enjoyable watching Rohit Sharma bat today. In terms of runs/innings & strike rate, not too different from Kohli in the last 2 years
