Indian bowlers appeared in best shape on Monday as they wrapped Australia’s second innings for small total of 137 runs in the fourth and final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy on Monday.
Spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, and pacer Umesh Yadav claimed three wickets each, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar took a single wicket, as India got an easy target of 106 runs at the picturesque HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala.
Australian batting line-up collapsed like dominoes as five of their batsmen were dismissed for a single-digit score.
Middle-order batsman Glenn Maxwell hit highest 45 runs in Australia’s second innings, while fighting hard against the highly-dominating Indians. He scored a six and boundary to excite the spectators.
Off-spinner Ashwin (3/29) took the scalp of Maxwell, tapping him right on front. The 28-year-old batsman reviewed the umpire’s decision, however, failed to overturn the judgment.
