Australian opener Usman Khawaja says it is a great achievement to defeat India on his soil and it is time to enjoy this victory rather than think about the World Cup. The left-handed opener played a key role in the 3-2 win in the Aussies returning from 0-2 in the series. He played 50, 38, 104, 91 and 100 runs in five matches.
Khwaja was elected 'Man of the Series'. He said, "This victory is very big. Winning the series in India is a big deal. It is difficult to play here and it is against a very good team. They had defeated us in Australia, so after returning from two matches, we can win the series by winning three consecutive matches. "
He said, "We are playing well now. We will only enjoy this series at this time. We still have to play five ODIs against Pakistan which is a good team. It is not necessary for us to look forward to this much, we want to enjoy this victory first. "
Asked if such a spectacular display makes Australia a defendant of defending the World Cup title, Khwaja said, "I am not sure." He said, "The World Cup is very far away. We have played some good cricket. Moving forward, it does not matter. There will be some new matches, new teams will be, a new wicket will happen.
Khawaja said, "After playing cricket for a long time, I have come to know that if you think about a lot more then you get into trouble. We should keep on moving ahead while working hard. We hope that we keep doing this, everything else will be cured. "
