India vs Australia 5th ODI in NagpurIndia opener Rohit Sharma   scored his 14th ODI century and sixth against Australia and steered India towards an easy victory in the 5th ODI in Nagpur.

Ajinkya Rahaneand Rohit gave India a brilliant by sharing a 124-run opening stand before Rahane was dismissed by Coulter-Nile for 61.  Virat Kohli has since provided able support to Rohit. The scoring rate is far better than the asking rate. This is after bowlers did a great job to restrict Australia to 242/9 in 50 overs in the 5th ODI in Nagpur. Marcus Stoinis and Travis Head shared a 87-run stand for the fifth wicket to take Australia past 200-run mark. But, Head was bowled but Axar Patel. This once again pushed Australia back. For India, Axar picked up three wickets while Jasprit Bumrah took two wickets. Hardik Pandya,Bhuvneshwar Kumar  and Kedar Jadhav picked up a wicket each.
