"We have been playing good cricket and doesn't feel like a loss".

"He's probably got the temperament for one-day cricket because he's pretty relaxed".

"'Do it so you can run harder between the wickets and field better because we know you're talented".

This was the first time Australia overcame a 0-2 deficit to win a five-match series, and they did it without their frontline pace pair of Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood.

Earlier, Team India lost the last and the final ODI in Delhi by 35 runs and it was again the middle-order that collapsed in a 273 chase. Rohit Sharma's 53-run stand with skipper Virat Kohli (20) briefly calmed nerves in the Indian dressing room before their top-order caved in spectacularly.

However, in acknowledging his side's "huge" series win in India, Khawaja conceded his performances haven't locked down his World Cup spot.

"We've still got another five one-dayers agains Pakistan, who are also a decent side". Khawaja was also the highest run scorer in the series and have put the Australian selectors in dilemma for the World Cup squad.

Regardless, being a key player behind Australia's renewed optimism in ODI cricket is something the elegant left-hander will hold close as he and side travel to the UAE to take on Pakistan. "Must enjoy ourselves and play because we enjoy the game", Kohli said in the post-match press conference. "The resilience and fight that we showed being down 0-2 it would have been easy to roll over in those small moments in the game, just let them drift away and India win the series", Finch stated after the victory."But the fight that we showed, we've had our backs against the walls for quite a while now so I'm really proud of the group. It's nice to get runs but it always hurts when you don't win", he said. "I am not looking too far ahead", he said.

"Although he's recently gone through a real tough time, if he can get through the other side of that before the World Cup, it could be - as hard as it sounds on him - it nearly could be ideal timing", the 44-year-old added.

India's Rohit Sharma is stumped out after he lost grip of his bat while playing a shot during the final one day global cricket match between India and Australia in New Delhi, India, Wednesday, March 13, 2019. To be here in India and winning this series, it's massive. "You've got the conditions, the crowds, so I think from a personal point of view it's really satisfying to come back to the one-day side and contribute".
