MS Dhoni was rested for the last two One-day Internationals of the five-match series against Australia that India lost by a margin 2-3. After winning two consecutive matches, India suffered three defeats in a row to lose the series, their final 50-over assignment before the ICC World Cup 2019 that starts on May 30 in the UK.

Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni had smashed an unbeaten knock of 59 runs to help India win the series opener by six wickets in Hyderabad.

Watching India struggle in the absence of the 37-year-old middle-order batsman in the series decider that India lost by 35 runs in Delhi on Wednesday, former Australia captain Michael Clarke tweeted: "Never underestimate the importance of MSD- experience in the middle order is so important."
