Australian cricket captain Aaron Finch on Monday (March 11) said that they were optimistic of winning a One-Day International series in India after a long time.

The five-match series between the two sides is currently tied at 2-2 after Australia chased down a steep total of 359 to stay alive in the series.

Australia's last series win in the 50-over format in India came in 2009. 

The team was invited for a special evening in New Delhi by the Australian High Commission in India.

Finch said that there is never a dull moment when they are playing with India as there is always "a lot of passion, a lot of fierce competitiveness between the two countries". 

The team also interacted with veteran Indian bowler, Bishan Singh Bedi, who was a part of the famous Indian spin quartet. 

The two teams will play the series-deciding ODI match in New Delhi on Wednesday (March 13).

If Finch's men win the New Delhi ODI, they'll become first Australian side win a five-match series after trailing 0-2.
