Australia target CWC win after stunning India

MS Dhoni,India vs Australia,Michael Clarke

He expected every player travelling with the team to England to do well, and there are no excuses for their performances in the ODI series against Australia.

"We were more courageous than them in the pressure situations in Australia", he said.

"To win this series, particularly after being 2-0 down, is a brilliant achievement ... it means a lot to us".

"We used that as a bit of motivation", Langer said.

"We always knew that the plans and the style that we wanted to play are all there (and) can win us the World Cup", he added.

To express solidarity with the Indian soldiers killed in the February 14 attack, Indian cricketers wore camouflaged army caps during the third ODI against Australia - which they lost owing to a thrashing performance again by Usman Khawaja.

Usman Khawaja was named player of the series.

Langer was proud of his troops after the drought-breaking series win. "It's a tough place to come and play cricket, against a very good side", Khawaja said.

The departure of Virat Kohli proved key - as it often does - as Marcus Stoinis got some extra bounce to remove the India captain, who top-edged to Alex Carey for 20.

Adam Zampa took three wickets to lead Australia's bowling at Delhi's Feroz Shah Kotla ground.

"I think Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins are forming a great partnership, they can also contribute with the bat".

Ashley Turner, who made his ODI debut in the opening match of the series, hit a match-winning blitz of 84 not out in the fourth game to make a case for the World Cup squad.

It was also their first overseas ODI series win since 2016, first ODI series win since 2017 and gives Langer's side plenty of momentum in their march towards the World Cup.

However the result lifted a massive weight off the tourists shoulders as Australia banked their first ODI series win in India since 2009.

Now Kohli wants to see his boys having fun in the IPL where they will split up and represent their respective franchises before the next national assignment in the form of the ICC mega event.
