Virat Kohli admits to batting failure for Bengaluru defeat

Rohit was in excellent form, with five sixes and a boundary dotting his 55-ball innings which yielded 65 runs. India Captain Virat Kohli needs 13 runs to reach 2000 runs in this year 2017. It was Hardik Pandya's 5th over and the third ball of over caught the eyes of the spectators when the bowler lost his control of the ball. To understand how the game can be taken till the end. In that matches, India had won five matches, Australia won only one match and no result for one match.

The surface was still helpful, but Australia had their tails up.

"Honestly at the 30-over mark, they were going strong".

Kohli edged an attempted late cut off Nathan Coulter-Nile onto his stumps on 21.

Australian opener David Warner ended his lean patch in style, by scoring a ton in his hundredth One-Day International (ODI) on Thursday.

Smith lapped up his moments of fielding brilliance with shrewd captaincy, as fields kept getting altered regularly.

The biggest of Warner's four sixes came off Patel's bowling, with an almighty swipe over long-on clattering into the roof.

Virat: We would have batted first too, However, I have played here a lot and the wicket tends to settle down under lights. His opening stand with Finch was also the second highest in ODIs on Indian soil, after Gary Kirsten and Herschelle Gibbs put up 235 in 2000 at Kochi. After a 63-run stand between them, Head departed.

"I'm extremely proud of where I am today, coming from playing a Twenty20 game at the MCG to being called up a couple of games later to represent Australia in the ODI format". They really paced their innings nicely and set us up to get 330 plus. If they had put on 40-50 more it would have been ideal for us. From that point of view, it wasn't a great batting performance from us.

India made three changes, resting Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav, and fielding Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Axar Patel instead. With the bat, their intent was really good. But, their replacements in Bangalore couldn't quite match that consistency.

The Australian Cricket Team finally managed to make a comeback in the series and took the 4th ODI home. The return of Aaron Finch has added some boost to their batting and reduce the dependency on Steven Smith and David Warner.

Australia win the toss. India had won all the matches, both test and ODIs, in the preceding tournament against Sri Lanka last month.
