During the ODI series, the International Cricket Council undertook a trial to broadcast the discussions between the on-field and television umpires. Australian captain Michael Clarke injured his hamstring during the first ODI game and was ruled out for the rest of the series. George Bailey will captained the side for the remaining fixtures.

Australia won the T20I series 2–1 and the ODI series 4–1. With their win in the final ODI match, Australia went to number one in the ODI rankings.
