IND vs AUS 4th Test, Day 5 Stumps: Ahmedabad test ends in draw, India win series by 2-1

Virat Kohli powered the Indian team to churn up a strong response to Australia's first innings score of 480. The former Indian captain smashed his 28th test ton and just missed out on a well-deserved double ton as he fell on 186. Meanwhile, Australian openers went unbeaten at 3/0 and still trail by 88 runs. 

Can Ashwin and Company inspire a magical performance and take down the Aussies on the last day? Let's find out.

    Test match ends in draw

    And here it is. The match ends in a draw as players from both teams shake hands with each other. India win the Border Gavaskar series for the fourth consecutive time and have also created a piece of history. This match was in stark contrast with the previous three as this was a batting paradise. Australia and India batted for almost two days each in the first innings. India tried to bring a favourable result on the final day but the Aussies denied them. However, India are through to the WTC final as New Zealand scripted a famous win over Sri Lanka. So we cap our coverage of the Border Gavaskar series with a 2-1 win. Thanks for joining us over this period. Now over to the ODIs. I Varun Malik, along with Kartik Mehindru sign off, see you soon.

    Gill, Pujara bowling

    Interesting phase as Pujara and Gill are now bowling. India know that the outcome is almost out of equation now so, the regular bowlers can rest a bit.

    Labuschagne, Smith lead Aussies

    It's the pair of Labuschagne and Smith, which is leading Australia in the final session now. Labuschagne has crossed his fifty and is set for a ton now.

    Tea On Day 5

    Well, not much to say. Australia lead by 67 runs, and this match isn't really going anywhere. Travis Head took the long walk back and fell short of a hundred by just 10 runs. See you post Tea.

    Axar Patel is now the fastest Indian bowler to take 50 Test wickets in terms off balls bowled. He bowled 2205 deliveries to achieve this feat.

    Axar Patel Sends Back Travis Head

    Oh finally, a wicket. Seemed like ages. Patel floats this one up, and Head was early into the drive. The ball sneaks in and gets the top of the off stump. Can this trigger an Austrlaian collpase? Well, one can only hope.

    Fifty Up For Head

    Travid Head has been a real revelation for India in recent times. He is left-handed and equally capable to deal with every kind of bowling. Brilliant stuff. Australia in the lead now.

    It's India vs Australia in WTC Final

    Well, what a thriller it was in Hagley Oval, Christchurch, and in the end New Zealand just about defeated Sri Lanka. Owing to the result, India have qualified for the final of WTC and will Australia. 

    What. An. Ending.

    Lunch On Day 5

    Well, Australia have done pretty well to lose just one wicket, and they would be very happy with the result. All in all, this Test is heading towards a sure shot draw. See you post Lunch. Stay tuned, and remember - 'Never Say Never'

  • 11:29 AM (IST) Posted by Kartik Mehindru

    Same Boring Update

    Well, it is one of those days. Nothing much happening here. Australia have slowly and effectively wiped off most of the lead India gained, and are now looking to gain one themselves. No doubt, Australia will be the happier team going to Lunch.

    Head On The Attack

    Travis Head, as per commentators on air, seem a bit impatient, but I reckon he is playing fearlessly and taking away any hopes of an Indian win here.

  • 10:08 AM (IST) Posted by Kartik Mehindru

    Not Much Happening

    Well, there's not much happening right now, other than the odd ball keeping a bit low. Looks like a hard grind for the bowlers even today. Should we rule out a result then? 

  • 9:53 AM (IST) Posted by Kartik Mehindru

    Ashwin Strikes

    Well, it was coming all along. Who can deny it? It was just a matter of time before Kuhnemann took that long walk back. Marnus is the new batsman. 

  • 9:35 AM (IST) Posted by Kartik Mehindru

    Game's On!

    Well, the game is on, there are sure to be a few nerves popping up in the Australian camp. They can't lose from here, but hey, that is exactly what makes Test cricket interesting. Anything...absolutely anything can happen today.

    Update Regarding Shreyas Iyer

    The result of Shreyas Iyer's back scan is out, and it isn't promising, a report in Cricbuzz states. The KKR skipper is now a doubtful starter for the ODI series against Australia, and his participation in IPL this season is also up in the air. 

    The report further states that Iyer will have to undergo further Tests and be treated by a specialist. The selectors present in Ahmedabad are expected to take a call regarding his participation in the ODIs against Australia.

    Hello & Welcome

    Well, it even feels odd to type this, but hello & welcome to Day 5, yes, you read that right and I wrote it right. The recent Tests have been so short, that a game making it to Day 5 feels weird.

    Anyways, welcome to the Day 5 of the last Test between India and Australia. I am Kartik Mehindru, and I will be taking you through every update throughout the game. 

    Can the bowlers win it for India? We are about 50 minutes away from the live-action. Fasten your seatbelts, this can as well be a thriller.
