4th Test: Australia out for 300; India enforce follow-on

  • Under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy India once again started to focus on winning in whites

Play started nearly four hours late due to rain at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with the home team resuming on 236-6 after lunch in reply to India's thumping first innings 622-7 declared. They discuss how to take wickets, and then they dictate their plans to me.

Rain on Sunday and Monday however ensured the game finished in a draw but the result was enough for India to win the series and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. It's a revelation in Indian cricket, and something for the bowlers at home to learn.

Kohli said that while this may be a great achievement, it is only a stepping stone for the Indian Test setup. It was a "freeze the frame" as the Indian team took a "Lap of Honour" of the SCG with the both Indian and Australian fans cheering them.

"I feel this series win will give us a different identity as an Indian side", he said in post-match presentations.

"The way the bowlers have dictated and dominated, not here but also in England and South Africa, it's something I haven't seen before".

"Every team goes through a transition, their dominance kept world cricket exciting for so many years". Alongside Ajit Wadekar's side's twin triumph in the West Indies and England in 1971, Kapil's Devils or Rahul Dravid's sides' winning the 1986 or 2007 series in England, the members of the current side have now successfully etched their names in record books.

Democrats offer plan to end shutdown, but no wall funds
The shutdown is forcing hundreds of thousands of federal workers and contractors to stay home or work without pay. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), said in an interview Monday. "They can come over right now, they could've come over anytime".

But needing a win to level the four-match series, Australia crumbled to 300 all out, compounding the misery after some soft dismissals by the top order on Saturday as they stare down the barrel of defeat.

Pujara, who scored 521 runs at an average of 74 with the help of three hundreds, was named Player of the Series in the historic series win. There have been positives and the team has talent, it was good for the batsmen to face the top bowling attack in the world.

"I think what we've been able to achieve is something we should be very proud of", Kohli added. Easier said than done, in a season where Australia has been incapable of batting long periods of time.

"I want to say I've never been more proud to be part of a team than this one here".

"I'd been playing positively against the spinners and got out with a half-arsed shot so probably a bit disappointed with myself more than anything".

The left-hander showed plenty of intent but just when it seemed he could be heading for a maiden test ton, he played the ball onto his own stumps off the bowling of Ravindra Jadeja. "I'll be playing some first-class cricket back home, and I'll play some county cricket during the IPL", he said.
