Their juggernaut of world record unbeaten 19 ODIs at home stopped, and for the first time any team chased 300+ runs against them at their home. India on the other hand managed to remain at No. 2 ICC ODI Ranking and avoid the embarrassment of a whitewash in ODI Bilateral series. Interestingly, while team Australia won emphatically 4-1, player of the series went to Rohit Sharma.
