"India got the better of us in Australia, although it was so tight, then we were able to get the better of India out here".

"We've given the responsibility to the player to be smart, to inform the management of the franchise and be in touch with Patrick (Farhart), our physio". Playing one-day cricket in India is always tough.

"'Do it so you can run harder between the wickets and field better because we know you're talented". Australia won just two ODI matches a year ago, the fewest ODI victories since 1978 when it played only two one-day internationals.

Aaron Finch, who led Australia to a remarkable series win against India, had an indifferent series with the bat.

Kohli suggested the tourists were hungrier in the final three ODIs of the series, likening their approach to that which India adopted in Australia.

In Dubai, Australian media has reported, Smith and Warner will have a "reintegration meeting" with players and staff in an early attempt to clear the air over the ball-tampering scandal.

Team India is nearly ready to participate in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 which is scheduled to begin on May 30 in England and Wales.

With the 50-over World Cup coming up in a a couple of months, Katich asserted that the Australians will have plenty of options whey they get down to the task of selecting the squad for the marquee tournament. "The resilience and fight that we showed being down 0-2 it would have been easy to roll over in those small moments in the game, just let them drift away and India win the series", Finch stated after the victory."But the fight that we showed, we've had our backs against the walls for quite a while now so I'm really proud of the group".

"But I'm also pretty aware that he will know that he's got all of his mates behind him, wanting him to do really well and wanting him to start making big runs again at the top of the order", he concluded.

"Jadeja bowling Finch was a beauty, it gripped and turned", Khawaja said at the post-match press conference.

Regardless, being a key player behind Australia's renewed optimism in ODI cricket is something the elegant left-hander will hold close as he and side travel to the UAE to take on Pakistan.

"From a personal point of view, it's huge as well".

The belligerence of Kedar Jadhav (44) and Kumar (46) in a 91-run stand for the seventh wicket injected some late drama into proceedings, but the home side ultimately fell some way short in succumbing to a third successive defeat. To be honest I am enjoying the wins more.
