4th ODI in India overnight.

Dharwan 143
AUS 6/359
Koala 91
Handscomb 117

Series now 2–2 with deciding 5 th game to be played Wednesday.

Great fight back in the series by AUS, let's hope they can finish this off well after winning the T20 series..

I’ve said this for a while now if we want to win the World Cup we have to roll the dice and keep with handscomb. Carey’s role then goes to a stronger batsman.

If Finch gets picked over koala then we are not picking our strongest side and do not deserve to win.

Replace Carey with Handscomb Or just pick Wade?

Handscombs glovework is as good as Wades.
Im happy to roll the dice here and let him keep.

Another series win in India. After a horrendous summer of cricket maybe Australian cricket is heading in the right direction again.

To beat India in India in the One Day series gives a tremendous boost to confidence of the side. Winning form is good form and I hope the 12 from this last match is retained for the opening World Cup matches. Only poor form should see any of them replaced regardless of the reputations of those wanting to break into the side. Form should matter.

Khawaja should have ousted Finch for the wc hopefully.
