Absolute domination from the Indian spinners floored Australia into submission, skittling them out for just 113 in the second innings before chasing down the target rather comfortably. With the second consecutive victory, India have already retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

KL Rahul's Abysmal FormHas KL Rahul already played his last Test for Team India? It's another thing if the team management persists with him but purely on merit and form, he should have been dropped already. Rahul got out cheaply on all occasions he came to bat.

Axar Patel's Batting ContributionIt was Axar Patel's crucial knock in the first innings that helped India reduce a massive chunk of the deficit. Axar scored 74 runs, and has looked comfortable throughout the series.

David Warner's Future In TestDavid Warner's future in Test cricket hangs by the thread. He got hit on the shoulder and was subbed off for Matt Renshaw. Warner has had a rather indifferent series where he looked very uncomfortable, and chances are he may not feature again in the series.

Ashwin & Jadeja Are Unplayable In IndiaNot that this is a revelation of any kind, but the series so far reaffirmed the fact that Ashwin and Jadeja are the most potent attacking pair in favourable conditions. The duo combined for all ten wickets in the second innings.

Virat Kohli's FormVirat Kohli looked good on the crease in both innings, he even got good starts but failed to convert them into something substantial. The next two matches will be significant for Kohli, who has overcome the lean patch in white-ball cricket but not in Tests.
