New Delhi: Stopping a resurgent Australia would not be easy but a confident India would look to end the series on a high when they compete in the fifth and final ODI match on Sunday.

The series already secured, India got the opportunity to test their bench strength in the fourth ODI but the team fell short by 21 runs, halting their nine-match winning run. Here is a lowdown on the key numbers about ODI in Nagpur, the India – Australia rivalry and individual records ahead on either side.
