45.1
Catch
OUT! Caught. Ahmed to Faulkner. Full toss, off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed to deep mid wicket, fielded by Dhawan. A tired heave by Faulkner and Dhawan ends his heroics and the match with a fine running catch.

That was another staggering ODI in this thrilling series. Australia were down and out at 138-6 chasing 384 but they kept on playing shots and Glenn Maxwell, Shane Watson and James Faulkner hit the ball superbly to give them a sniff but India were able to close the game out to win the series 3-2.

The game was set up by Rohit Sharma's masterful 209 and he was a huge part of a highly successful Indian top order. It wasn't a good series to be a bowler and Australia missed their spearhead Mitchell Johnson in this deciding match.
