While India won the five-match series after winning the first three encounters, Australia snapped an 11-game losing streak away from home in Thursday's fourth ODI in Bangalore. Team India had already clinched the Five One Day Series and move to the no.1 position.

Earlier, Warner and Finch took the attack to the Indian bowlers to eclipse Australia's previous best opening stand against India which was the 212 set by Geoff Marsh and David Boon in Jaipur in 1986. Chahal, who has been India's go-to man to break partnerships, was hammered by Finch and Warner. Aaron Finch (94), who missed out on his ninth ODI century, was the next to depart, as pacer Umesh Yadav got his 100th ODI wicket. Earlier today, Australia won the toss and made a decision to BAT first.

Peter Handscomb and Travis Head steadied the innings with a 63-run partnership before Head was dismissed by Yadav for 29.

After a 30-ball 43 cameo, he became Yadav's fourth victim being clean bowled after missing his big slog in the penultimate over of the innings.

He again called for the "dangerous" nuclear deal with Iran to be scrapped or fixed, warning world leaders gathered at the U.N. President Trump tweets of his "big day" at the United nations , saying "many good things, and some tricky ones, happening".

India were able to make only 313/8 against Australia's 334/5 in 50 overs.

Rahane gave him good support from the other end, scoring 53 runs off 66 balls with six boundaries and a hit into the stands. It was yet again that familiar sight in Indian cricket, with vice-captain Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli being involved in a run-out. Kane Richardson then claimed three important wickets as India lost its way towards the end of the run chase.

Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane hammered seven fours and three sixes in the first 10 overs as Pat Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile delivered an uncharacteristically loose opening spell. We were optimistic with our chances. The spinners won't always have good days. I tend to bowl outside the off-stump and I vary my pace.

Smith was delighted to have finally won a game, and said: "Nice to get a win in". Play the CPL T20 challenge and win cash prizes daily! The lone Aussie win came in 14 years ago in 2003. "We need to be in a positive frame of mind before the Ashes and that can only happen if we win most of the remaining matches", Warner stated. Put a great smile on our face, winning this game tonight. Getting to play in India, and play my 100th ODI, is pretty special.
