This was a great series and hopefully, we'll fare well in New Zealand as well. India might look forward to testing out some new combinations and strategies for the next couple of matches coz these are the final games before the World Cup starts - this is the best time to experiment and build up the team.

It's a wrap from In.com today and we'll see you guys on January 23, when India tours New Zealand. Goodbye and have a great weekend!

That brings us to the end of India's tour of Australia. The T20 series was drawn with both teams winning a match and one match being abandoned. The Test series saw India winning the first one and Australia levelling the series in the second. The third man was dominated by the visitors, who eventually won the game. The fourth Test was again dominated by India but unfortunately was washed out. However, India made history by beating Australia in Australia. Moving on to the ODIs, Australia won it in Sydney, and India levelled the series in Adelaide. The decider, which was today's match, saw India beating Australia in a closely fought match to win the series 2-1.
