Looking at the recent clashes of both the teams in ODIs, the Australian team has managed to defeat the “Men in Blue” in a 5-matches bilateral series that was played in India.

Also, none of us can forget how Australia defeated the defending champions in 2015 World Cup’s Semi-Finals and won the title for the 5th time.
