With the series already decided Australia beat India by 25 runs in their fourth one-day international in Canberra on Wednesday, their fourth successive victory in the five-match series.

After the hosts batted first and made 348 for eight, India looked on track for their first win of the series until a dramatic collapse saw them dismissed for 323 in the final over at Manuka Oval.

India opened with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan but just as Rohit Sharma (41) was getting to a quick start with two sixes and a four in one over, he was dismissed by a Kane Richardson ball that was caught down the leg side, welcoming the entry of Virat Kohli. Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli turned the game to by hitting big with a 212 partnership and two tons, steadying India in the first thirty five overs.

Unfortunately, Aussies got the better of the Indian batting unit by dismissing them faster than expected, soon after the fall of Dhawan's wicket (126), which was followed by Dhoni (0), Kohli (106), Gurkeerat (0), Rahane (2), Rishi Dhawan (9), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2) and Umesh Yadav (2) who fell quickly like a pack of cards.
