Delhi Test, Day Three
India seal series whitewash in Delhi [IND-AUS:4-0(4/4)]
March 24, 2013India completed a 4-0 series whitewash, as Cheteshwar Pujara helped seal the win with an unbeaten 82 in Delhi. Chasing 155 to win, India were 5/3 in a mini-collapse before MS Dhoni (12 not out) and Cheteshwar Pujara (82 not out) guided the home side to an historic series triumph, reaching 158/4 off just 31.2 overs to win with more than two days to spare.
At the start of the day, the outlook was promising for Australia as they restricted India to adding only six runs to their overnight total (272 all out) with the help of spinner Nathan Lyon's career-best 7-94. Australia were skittled for 164 as man-of-the-match Ravindra Jadeja claimed 5-58 with his left-arm spinners to put the hosts on top. For Australia, tailender Peter Siddle (51 and 50) top-scored for the second time in the match - the first time a No.9 has done so in Test cricket.
It's the first time Australia have lost four matches in a Test series since going down 5-1 in the 1978/79 Ashes. It is also the first time that Australia have lost a series 4-0 since a defeat by South Africa in 1970.
India XI: A M Rahane, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Ravindrasinh Jadeja, Mahendra Dhoni (c, wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma.
England XI: Shane Watson (c), David Warner, E J M Cowan, Philips Hughes, Steven Smith, Matthew Wade (wk), G J Maxwell, Mitchell Johnson, Peter Siddle, James Pattinson, Nathan Lyon.
Delhi Test, day 3: India 272 (Vijay 57, Pujara 52, Lyon 7-94) and 158/4 (Pujara 82*) beat Australia 262 (Siddle 51, Ashwin 5-57) and 164 (Jadeja 5-58) by 6 wickets
Indian Team Selection
Injured Dhawan ruled out of 4th Test; Suresh Raina included
March 19, 2013India's latest batting sensation Shikhar Dhawan who suffered a hand injury during the Mohali test was on Tuesday ruled out of the fourth and final Test against Australia in Delhi. He will be out of action for six weeks, and Suresh Raina will replace him in the squad. The selection committee had opted for veteran left-handed batsman Gautam Gambhir as the substitute opener, before a blood test showed he was down with jaundice.
In the absence of Sehwag, Gambhir and Dhawan, Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane are the only openers in the squad and Rahane, who is yet to play a Test, looks most likely to partner Vijay in Delhi. Suresh Raina, who has played 17 tests, wasn't part of the squad for the four Tests against England and the first three Tests against Australia.
India Squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Capt.), Sachin Tendulkar, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Mohali Test, Day Five
Australia's eighth loss in the last 10 Tests in India, hosts claim series [IND-AUS:3-0(3/4)]
March 18, 2013After bowling out Australia for 223 in their second innings, India chased down the target of 133 with 15 balls remaining before close of play on the last day of the Mohali test to win the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. This marks the first time that India have won three successive Tests against Australia in a Test series. Of the last Ten Tests played by Australia in India, they have lost eight and drawn the remaining three.
Earlier, a defiant 65-minute last-wicket stand between Starc (35) and Xavier Doherty (18) consumed 18.1 overs for 44 runs to ensure the Indians bat well into the mandatory overs. When the final hour started, India required 45 runs from a minimum of 15 overs. With only a few overs to go, Jadeja (8) found the boundary twice after Sachin (21) was run out, and then skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (18) smashed three fours off Mitchell Clarke in a row to finish the innings and win the series.
India XI: S Dhawan, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Ravindrasinh Jadeja, Mahendra Dhoni (c, wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma.
England XI: David Warner, Ed Cowan, Michael Clarke (c), Phil Hughes, Steve Smith, Brad Haddin (wk), Moises Henriques, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle, Xavier Doherty, Nathan Lyon. 12th man: Glenn Maxwell.
Mohali Test, day 5: India 499 (Dhawan 187, Vijay 153, Siddle 5-71) and 136/4 beat Australia 408 (Starc 99, Smith 92) and 223 (Hughes 69) by 6 wickets
Indian Team Selection
Sehwag dropped for remaining Tests
March 7, 2013India has dropped veteran batsman Virender Sehwag from the Test side for the first time since 2008, possibly ending the reign of one of cricket's most brutal openers. The squad was trimmed to 14 with the selectors deciding against picking a replacement for him. The out of form opener has scored just 27 runs in his three innings (2, 19 and 6) during the ongoing series. At the start of the Australia series, his regular opening partner Gautam Gambhir was also dropped from the Indian test squad, but then hit a century for India A against the touring side.
The hard-hitting 34-year-old has scored 8,586 runs in 104 Tests at an average of 49.34 since his debut in 2001. At his peak he was relentless, twice passing Triple Hundred - 309 in Multan in 2004 against Pakistan and 319 in Chennai against South Africa in 2008. However, he has scored only one century since November 2010 - a 117 against England in 2012. His 219 from 149 balls against West Indies remains a world record score in one-day international cricket.
In the absence of Sehwag, Delhi-born left-hander Shikhar Dhawan could get a chance to open the innings with Murali Vijay in the two matches to be played in Mohali (from March 14) and Delhi (from March 22) respectively.
India Squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Capt.), Sachin Tendulkar, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ishant Sharma, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

March 5, 2013MS Dhoni emerged as the most successful Indian captain as the hosts beat Australia by an innings and 135 runs to take an unassailable 2-0 lead at Hyderabad. This was his 22nd win as captain in 45 Tests with 5 away wins (1 SAF, 1 SRL, 1 NZL, 1 WIN, 1 BAN), going past Sourav Ganguly's 21 in 49 with 11 away wins (1 SRL, 1 AUS, 1 ENG, 1 PAK, 3 BAN, 3 ZMB, 1 WIN).
Spinners R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja produced a mesmerising spell as Australia folded for 131, becoming the first team to lose a Test by an innings after declaring their first innings. It was Ashwin's eighth five-for in 11 home Tests.
India XI: Virender Sehwag, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Dhoni (capt & wk), Ravindrasinh Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma.

MS Dhoni, who is now level with Ganguly as the most successful Indian captain with 21 wins, won the man of the match award for his magnificent innings of 224 in the first innings.

Kochi ODI: Rain might play spoilsport at Kochi one-dayer
Oct 15, 2010Heavy rain in Kochi since Thursday night has raised concerns about the fate of the first One-Day International between India and Australia to be played in Kochi on October 17. However, security measures are in full swing, with a 2500 member police force, along with 100 commandoes, having been deployed for ensuring safety.
There are many changes to the Indian squad that will see most of the senior players being rested for the three-match series. There is no Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir or Sachin Tendulkar, and in their place, Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay will open the innings. The bowling will be shorn of Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma, which gives an opportunity to the likes of R Ashwin and Vinay Kumar. Australia have followed suit with Ponting left out of their squad along with all-rounder Shane Watson and fast bowler Mitchell Johnson, while Michael Clarke will take over as captain.

Oct 11, 2010Sachin Tendulkar was again the star turn smashing his 49th Test century as India dominated day three of the second Test against Australia. The tourists rallied late in the day but India still closed on a commanding 435 for five as Tendulkar edged towards his second double century against Australia. Australia managed just three wickets as the hosts took their overnight score of 2 for 128 to 5 for 435 by stumps.
Tendulkar finished the day unbeaten on a monumental 191 and opener Vijay scored 139 during a record stand of 308 runs for the third wicket - a remarkable recovery from 2 for 38 in Sunday's last session. The Mumbai-born batsman, who started the day on 44 and was stuck in the 80s for almost 45 minutes, reached his century by smashing off-spinner Nathan Hauritz for two sixes over long-on. Vijay (139), who registered his maiden ton, hit 14 fours and two sixes.

Bangalore Test, day two: Tendulkar's milestone - 14,000 Test runs
Oct 10, 2010Sachin Tendulkar became the first Test batsman to reach 14,000 runs as India battled for a foothold on day two of the second Test against Australia in Bangalore. He reached the landmark in his 171st Test and finished unbeaten on 44 as India recovered from 38-2 to reach 128 without further loss at stumps in reply to the tourists’ tally of 478, in which Marcus North starred with 128. North's innings included 17 boundaries and a six in his five-and-a-half hour stay at the crease while his 149-run stand with Tim Paine ensured that Australia had a healthy total to fall back on.
IND v AUS, Bangalore Test, Day 2: India 128/2 (Tendulkar 44*, Vijay 42*) trail Australia 478 (North 128, Paine 59, Harbhajan 4-148, Ojha 3-120) by 350 runs
Bangalore Test, day one: Australia 285-5
Oct 9, 2010Australia were in command at 95-0 at lunch, after Ponting chose to bat in overcast conditions, with Watson taking three boundaries in the 11th over off Zaheer Khan and reaching his 11th Test fifty before the interval. India came back strongly with 3 wickets after lunch, but Ponting's 54th half-century helped the tourists survive a middle-order collapse to reach 285-5 by stumps in front of 20,000 boisterous home fans at the Chinnaswamy stadium.

India v Australia, 1st Test, Mohali, Oct 1-5
Mohali Test, day five: Laxman guides India to remarkable Test victory; IND-AUS:1-0(2)
Oct 5, 2010VVS Laxman struck a superb unbeaten 73 as India fought back from the brink of defeat to beat Australia by one wicket in a thrilling first Test in Mohali. Laxman, batting with a runner due to a back injury, was ably assisted by tail-ender Ishant Sharma as India rallied from 124-8 to within sight of victory. Sharma made 31 before being trapped leg before wicket by Ben Hilfenhaus. With 11 still needed, Laxman was joined by last-man Pragyan Ojha and they got India home in a nailbiting finish.
This was India's first one-wicket victory in Tests. The 81-run partnership for the ninth wicket between VVS Laxman and Ishant Sharma was the second-highest against Australia, behind the 89-run stand between Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan in 2004.

IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 5: India 405 (Tendulkar 98, Raina 86, Johnson 5-64) and 216 for 9 (Laxman 73*, Hilfenhaus 4-57, Bollinger 3-32) beat Australia 428 (Watson 126, Paine 92, Zaheer 5-94) and 192 (Watson 56, Ishant 3-34, Zaheer 3-43) by 1 wicket
Mohali Test, day four: Australia sniff victory
Oct 4, 2010Australia ended Day 4 in the first Test at Mohali on a high, reducing India to 55 for four, after 17 overs, in their second innings at stumps on Monday.
The hosts need 161 runs more for what now seems an improbable victory.
Earlier, in the day's final session, the Indian bowlers put in an inspired display to dismiss Australia cheaply in their second innings. Zaheer and Ishant were the pick of Indian bowlers with three wickets apiece, while both the spinners, Harbhajan and Ojha, picked two each. The visitors made 192 (in 60.5 overs) for an overall lead of 215.
IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 4: India 405 and 55 for 4 (Tendulkar 10*, Zaheer 5*, Hilfenhaus 3-22) need another 161 runs to beat Australia 428 and 192 (Watson 56, Ishant 3-34, Zaheer 3-43)
Mohali Test, day two: A world record for Sehwag as India fight back
Oct 2, 2010India rode on Virender Sehwag's record-equalling half-century to reach 110-2 in their first innings in reply to Australia's 428 in the opening Test on Saturday.
The Indian opener scored a blazing 59 off 54 balls with 10 fours in the final session after Australian wicketkeeper Tim Paine (92) had missed out on a maiden Test hundred. Sehwag equalled the record of scoring a 50 or more in 11 consecutive Tests. West Indies' Viv Richards and Indian Gautam Gambhir are the other batsmen to have achieved the feat.
IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 2: India 110 for 2 (Sehwag 59) trail Australia 428 (Watson 126, Paine 92, Ponting 71, Zaheer 5-94) by 318 runs
Mohali Test, day one: Watson hits ton before Zaheer strikes
Oct 1, 2010Shane Watson made the most of two dropped catches to score a century as Australia posted 224-5 in their first innings at stumps on the opening day of the first Test against India on Friday. He was involved in a 141-run stand for the second wicket with skipper Ricky Ponting (71).
Australia had elected to bat after winning the toss. Australia captain Ricky Ponting got into a verbal spat with India's fast bowler Zaheer Khan after he was run out for 71 by a direct throw by Suresh Raina. As the two got into a heated exchange of words, umpire Billy Bowden rushed in to calmed them down. The incident is likely to be reported by the umpires to the match referee Chris Broad.
IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 1: Australia 224 for 5 (Watson 101*, Ponting 71, Zaheer 3-45) v India
