India wins the final ODI at SCG, Manish Pandey leads the team for the first victory.

Another huge total looks a big possibility the way Australia is batting presently on the back of Dave Warner's 5th ODI century at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

India won the toss and chose to field, Ajinkya Rahane was replaced by Manish Pandey, Jasprit Bumrah makes his debut for India. 

Australia lost some quick wickets early in the innings but Warner's contribution kept the run rate ticking for Australia. Australia are 225/4 after 37 Overs Mitchell Marsh is not out on 50.

Dave Warner is out for 122 Australia 235/5.

Debutant Jaspreet Bumrah has so far bowled a tight spell, giving away only 28 runs in 8 Overs so far.

Mathew Wade is the new man in for Australia. James Faulkner follows after.

Runs continue for Australia 302/5 Mitchel Marsh continues with free scoring with the bat. He is 88 of 70.

Australia set India 331 to chase in the final ODI of the VB series on the back of Warner and M Marsh centuries.

India finally won the match after some solid overall performance from the India batsmen. After Rohit Sharma's 99, it was left for the lower middle order to perform.

There was this opportunity for Manish Pandey and he grabbed with both the hands, scoring at a brisk pace, notching a ton, and giving India a much needed victory on the tough tour.

India reached the target in 49.4 Overs with Manish Pandey scoring 104 of just 81 balls that included 8 fours and a six.
