Australia's 21-run win over India in Bengaluru on Thursday brings the series scoreline to 3-1 in favour of the hosts and also removes the prospect of the Aussies suffering their second ODI series whitewash in less than a year.
Australia´s David Warner hit a belligerent century against India to mark his 100th one-day worldwide on Thursday. M.S. Dhoni was given a hero's welcome by the crowd, but struggled to time the ball before dragging Richardson onto the stumps for 13.
In 80 ODIs for Australia, Maxwell has 2035 runs at an average of 32.30 and crossed fifty only twice in 21 previous matches before being dropped.
The crowd at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium is building ahead of India's chase.
When up against Australian bowlers, Rohit Sharma just can't stop sending the balls into the stands at the Chinnaswamy. His partner Rohit Sharma was run out shortly after for 65 following a mix-up with skipper Virat Kohli.
Fast bowlers Kane Richardson and Nathan Coulter-Nile claimed five wickets between them to end India's total ODI winning streak at nine.
Jadhav and Manish Pandey kept the scoreboard ticking with a 61-run partnership, but once Jadhav was dismissed for 67, which came off 69 balls and included seven boundaries and a six, India began to lose wickets at regular intervals. Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa took a wicket each.
Jadhav started slowly but then picked up pace and matched Pandya stroke for stroke. The "Men in Blue" can climb back to the top spot in the ODI rankings if they win the fifth ODI against Australia which will take place at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium on Sunday. "Australia was really good today", Kohli said.
He would eventually depart when he miscued a skidder from Kedar Jadhav to long-on but not after playing one of the most fluent innings of the series.
The left-handed Warner hit 12 fours and 4 sixes during his 119-ball innings.
"Honestly at the 30-over mark, they were going strong". Warner was the wrecker-in-chief, while Finch ensured that Warner gets most strike. If he plays 40-50 balls, he can score 70-80 runs.
