India vs Australia, 5th ODI at Nagpur

The defeat against Australia in the fourth ODI meant the end of India's nine-match winning streak.

Brief Preview. The fate of the five-match series was decided after India swept aside Australia in the first three matches, leaving the possibility of an embarrassing whitewash hanging over the tourists' heads.

After Smith, now Virat Kohli is playing the blame game after losing and blaming the batsmen for not performing.

Peter Handscomb delivered some lusty blows towards the end when at one point it seemed Australia would squander the strong start just like they had in Kolkata. Ajinkya Rahane (53, 66b, 6x4, 1x6) and Rohit Sharma (65, 55b, 1x4, 5x6) put the team on course with their 106-run opening stand. Rahane, Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli (21, 21b, 3x4) fell within a space of 31 runs thereafter, setting India back briefly. We were pretty optimistic.

Warner's opening partner Aaron Finch was also batting superbly and was looking good for his second successive hundred but was dismissed six short of the three-figure mark by Umesh Yadav with the Aussies 231/2 in 35.5 overs. That can happen. People have off days. After winning all format of cricket matches against Sri Lanka in previous month, Indian team continued to acquire conquest in the recent games played against Aussies.

South Korea follows China in ICO ban
This month, authorities also indicted four people on charges of illegally trading cannabis using bitcoin, the commission said. The ICO or a token crowdsale is a way of raising funds by selling digital tokens , typically based on the Ethereum platform.

Earlier, Kohli opted to rest his twin death bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar along with chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, bringing in Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Axar Patel.

Australia coach David Saker said the team is relieved to have finally got a win. They did a really good job with that partnership. In the past three matches, India played in all three categories as best and they would like to continue the same on upcoming two matches. "The only respite for the fast bowlers was taking the pace off", he added. The pitch looked worse than it played.

Australia were able to earn a consolation victory over India in the Fourth ODI at the Chinnaswamy stadium by 21 runs.

Returning from the drinks break, India lost its first wicket when Sharma got run out by Steven Smith. Warner and Finch were spectacular. They really paced their innings nicely and set us up to get 330 plus.
