Australia's paceman blitzed India in two overs after lunch to crush the tourists by an innings and 37 runs in the third test on Sunday and take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the four-match series.
Paceman Ben Hilfenhaus (4-54) took three wickets in five balls and left Peter Siddle (3-43) to perform the coup de grace on the second ball of the next over by removing Virat Kohli for 75 and leave the tourists all out for 171.
India, bowled out for 161 in the first innings, had resumed on 88 for four still needing 120 runs to match Australia's first effort of 369 and make the hosts bat again.Text:
