Commentary

So congratulations Australia for winning the series, despite - as Ponting said - sometimes struggling to find 11 fit men to play. So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Ravi Shastri "What we have witnessed here is a first-class performance from Australia." Er, Ravi shouldn't it be List A performance, considering it's an ODI? But we'll move on from making bad jokes.

Losing captain, MS Dhoni Like I said, the first half an hour was important, and the first 15 minutes did all the damage today. They did bowl well. There was swing there, but they exploited it well... The way we lost in Mohali and Nagpur, as a team you don't want to lose like that. But full credit to Australia, they took the games away."

Ricky Ponting "Perhaps the most satisfying series win I have been involved in. To get 11 players on the field has been a challenge in some of the games... Our fielding has been outstanding, in a couple of close games it has been the difference... "

Man of the Match, Doug Bollinger "I am real happy today. It all came together in what has been a fantastic tournament. I just went there and kept things simple... This tour has been a good learning experience, all different kinds of wickets, conditions..."

Hugs all around in the dressing room. Hussey is quite chuffed out in the middle, he has been the most confident batsman in the series, and sees the team through here. They have done really well to win this series. Stay with us for the post-match presentation
