32nd Over
So now the Aussies prepare for the Ashes, beginning in July while the Indians next travel to South Africa. That is all we have for you in this series. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Take care now!
Ravindra Jadeja has been named man-of-the-match with 7 wickets for the match and 43 valuable runs in the first innings for India. And with 29 wickets for the series, Ravichandran Ashwin was the deserved man of the match.
So India take back the Border-Gavaskar trophy with a 4-0 win. They thoroughly deserve the spoils, winning the first three tests rather easily, and the fourth win comfortably in the finish. A learning curve for the inexperienced Aussies.
But all of a sudden Lyon claimed a wicket and the pitch came to life again. There was a batting collapse and hope for the Aussies. If Wade had held on to a caught behind things may have turned further. As it was, that was the last hope for the Aussies.
Siddle though, gave the bowlers something to bowl at as he recorded a second 50 for the match and India needed 155 to win. Despite an early wicket, Pujara and Kohli put any loose deliveries away as the Aussies failed to get much out of the pitch.
At the start of the day, it promised to be a thrilling finish, and with Lyon wrapping up the Indian tail quick, it looked that way. But the Aussie top and middle order succumbed to the spin of India as they quickly collapsed.
And so India have won this match by 6 wickets inside of three days and they have gained some revenge on Australia, having lost 4-0 the last time these two sides played in Australia, they've turned it around and claimed a series whitewash!
