Australia produced disciplined bowling performance to bundle India to 237 runs and win the final One-Day International (ODI) by 35 runs to clinch the series 3-2 on Wednesday. In the chase, Pat Cummins dismissed centurion from Mohali, Shikhar Dhawan for 12. Rohit Sharma and captain Virat Kohli then added 53 runs for the second wicket before Kohli (20) edged a Stoinis delivery to be caught behind by Alex Carey. Youngster Rishabh Pant (16) and all-rounder Vijay Shankar (16) failed to grab their chances as they perished under pressure leaving Rohit Sharma helpless on the other end. Rohit failed to build a crucial partnership with Kedar Jadhav before he was stumped off Adam Zampa's bowling for 56 runs. The vice-captain became the third-fastest batsman to complete 8,000 ODI runs from 200 innings equalling former India captain Sourav Ganguly. India were tottering at 132/6 when Ravindra Jadeja was dismissed for a duck. However, a 91-run stand between Kedar Jadhav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar kept India's hopes alive. Jadhav made 44 (4 fours, 1 six) while Bhuvneshwar made 46 (3 fours, 2 sixes). With the asking-rate hovering over 12, Bhuvneshwar and Jadhav perished in quick succession. Following their dismissal, the tailenders were removed in no time. Earlier, riding on a fine century by opening batsman Usman Khawaja, who scored consecutive centuries, Australia posted 272/9 in 50 overs. (SCORECARD)

12:35 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog of the fifth and final ODI between India and Australia that is to be played at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, Delhi.
KL Rahul, who has also been showing indifferent form of late, managed to win some trust with his fluent 26-ball knock in the Mohali ODI, and can be expected to play on Wednesday. Also in focus will be Virat Kohli, whose captaincy in the 4th ODI has been widely criticised. In fact, he failed to make a mark with the bat in the match as well, having dropped himself down the order to accommodate Rahul at No 3. For Australia, there is a sudden problem of plenty, considering BBL prodigy Ashton Turner's heroics in Mohali, Usman Khawaja and Peter Handscomb striking form, and with the World Cup in perspective -- the impending return of Steve Smith and David Warner. Having lost the first two ODIs, they have now scored two consecutive victories against the hosts - chasing down a stiff target of 359 on Sunday. Pat Cummins' five-wicket haul in Mohali will also give the visitors some confidence.
India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rishabh Pant (wk).
Australia: Aaron Finch (captain), Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Turner, Jhye Richardson, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Alex Carey, Nathan Lyon, Jason Behrendorff.
