India won by 137 runs
BALL BY BALL
Ishant does the job as Lyon can't resist the short ball. Feathered through to Pant and India win by 137 runs and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, as well as winning their 150th Test match. It was slightly nervous this morning as rain kept them off the field but once they got out they only needed 27 deliveries to get the job done. A brilliant performance all round from the Indian team with a century from Cheteshwar Pujara in the first innings and then nine wickets in the match for Jasprit Bumrah. Credit to Pat Cummins though who scored 80 runs and took nine wickets but came out on the losing side. All eyes now on Sydney on the 2nd January as India seek to become the first Indian team to win a Test series on Australian soil. The Aussies will have something to say about that and they might have a few new faces in the XI. Do join us then.

Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Pujara. That's the wicket India have been searching for. Cummins has been superb with the bat but a new day brings a new challenge. Fresh bowlers and Bumrah gets the ball nice and full drawing Cummins forward. Fraction of movement with the new hard ball and the edge is taken at first slip.
