The series decider will be played in Delhi on Wednesday.

The Indian cricket team had worn camouflage caps during their third One-Day International (ODI) match against Australia on Friday "as [a] mark of tribute to the loss of lives in Pulwama terror attack and the armed forces".

Peaking in time for the World Cup? Kohli was referring to the incident that took place in the 44th over of Australia's innings. Not only has he picked six wickets from the first four ODIs against India, but has also dismissed MS Dhoni twice and Kohli once - two of India's best players of spin. With no conclusive evidence to overturn the on-field decision, the third-umpire gave his decision in favour of the batsman.

Mohali: Peter Handscomb, one of the architects of Australia's record-breaking run-chase against India in the fourth ODI here, was confident that young Ashton Turner could replicate his big-hitting exploits in domestic cricket at the worldwide stage.

"The DRS call was a bit of surprise for all of us and it's becoming a more of a talking point every game".

"The ICC had taken strong action against them and we have sought similar action against India", he added.

While Kohli was definitely angry with DRS, he took nothing away from the visitors and praised them for their fine display with the bat. "Once the dew came on, we noticed there wasn't much spin, which helped us play our natural game", he said. "Ashton played a hell of a knock, Peter Handscomb played a brilliant inning, Usman Khawaja held the innings together".

His failure behind the stumps also drew an angry reaction from India skipper Virat Kohli. "We've just got to wait and see with him". "If Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar was bowling with the dew, it would've been more hard, so we wanted to get done with it first", said Kohli.

The pair put on a sensational third-wicket stand of 192 before Ashton Turner, in just his second ODI worldwide, finished the job with a fantastic 84 off just 43 balls after he had replaced Marcus Stoinis in the side and he will keep his place for the deciding match.
