Rohit Sharma's unbeaten 209 help India to clinch the series.
Indian batsman Rohit Sharma smashed 209 runs from 158 balls against Australia at Banglore, and became only the third man to score a double in one-day international cricket.
Sharma left Virender Sehwag’s 219 as the record after he was caught at deep square leg off the third by hitting two balls of the last over for six.
He broke Shane Watson’s record of 15 in an ODI innings after hitting 16 sixes. India finished on 383-6, with Mahendra Dhoni run out off the last ball for 62.
The Australian batsmen were bowled out for 326 runs by Team India at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore after Mohammed Shami got James Faulkner out caught at deep midwicket.
Faulkner scored 116 runs off 73 balls with 11 boundaries and six sixes. Indian bowlers Mohammad Shami and RA Jadeja took three wickets each, while R Ashwin took 2 wickets and R Vinay Kumar one wicket.
India defeated Australia by 57 runs to win the ODI series 3-2.
