Australia has done a great job to push the 5-match ODI series into the final game after India won the first two matches of the series. India threatened to take away the series with at least one game of spare but some collective efforts from the Aussies levelled the series. If their bowling in the Ranchi ODI impressed one and all, it was their approach with the bat in Mohali that ensured the Indians lost an ODI for the first time after posting 350+ batting first.
Here are all the key stats and numbers ahead of the series-decider between India and Australia in Delhi:
