That's all we have for you all today, it was great to have yo here and we'll look forward to more feedback as India head to Kolkata for the Test against West Indies and Australia will go back home for the Ashes. Till then, it's goodbye from Vishal Dikshit on behalf of Devashish and scorer Binoy George. Ta ta!

9.42pm Dhawan is being mobbed by team-mates, Dhoni uproots the stumps and runs away in celebration, Rohit gets one too as the batsmen's series comes to an end in India's favour. Faulkner was having a word with the umpires after the dismissal, he was clearly unhappy about something. Rohit left everyone in awe, no doubt, but what an effort from James Faulkner. It was his first hundred - domestic or international - and if Australia had more wickets, he would have probably taken them home.

Prabbu Raj Menon: "i cant blame pitches or small grounds ... its purely rubbish bowling by both teams"

harshit srivastava: "faulkner will be the better allrounder for ashes than others."

Time for the presentation:

George Bailey: We went pretty close there but outstanding innings from Rohit. We were probably ahead at one point of time but didn't have enough wickets. Faulkner and Maxwell played excellent cameos. We knew it would be tough they are the No. 1 and it's been a wonderful series. Plenty of positives, the one-day cricket we were playing 18 months wasn't great and we are certainly on track now.

Rohit Sharma is Man of the Match and Series: I didn't really think of the 200 initially. Right from ball one I wanted to stay there. It was a small ground with a fast outfield, we knew it was going to be a big-scoring game keeping the wickets in hand. We always spoke about building small parnterhsips and we had two big ones today. It's been our strength throughout the series so it was heartening to see that. You never know, even 380 wasn't looking comfortable. Credit goes to Dhawan and Virat as well, they played very well throughout the series, we showed real character. I'm enjoying opening at the moment, just want to keep continuing and want to continue fresh. I'm looking forward to the West Indies series now and I didn't know about the 16 sixes record.

MS Dhoni: There was a moment when we were under pressure after losing 2-3 quick wickets. It became a little difficult and we wanted to sore 300 and explode from there. 383 wasn't on our mind but Rohit batted very well. This ground has the reputation for batsmen hitting more sixes than fours, especially when you see Gayle and Virat batting in the IPL. It's difficult to contain the batsmen here. Our Batting has been fantastic, openers have done very well but it would have been good if middle order got a few more runs. Apart form the one game, we scored in each and every game. We have to improve in bowling, something we wanted to do on a team level also. We have chased 350+ twice but nobody talks about the Australian bowling line-up. Fantastic series overall, Australia played very well and the wickets were good. the amount of crowd that came was fantastic.

Jadeja to McKay, no run, that's turn form Jadeja and Dhoni has appealed for a stumping. IT was on length outside off, the batsman drove but missed it and Dhoni took the bails off. Replays say its too close but his toe is just back in time
