Australia win 4th Test by 298 runs to complete 4-0 whitewash

Australia managed to claim the four remaining Indian wickets in little over an hour to enforce a mammoth 298 run win and inflict a 4-0 whitewash on India, on Saturday. This is India's 8th overseas loss in raw. Indian captain MS Dhoni praised Australia's ability to rise to occasion when a match was there to be won. "Australia played consistent cricket which was very important," he said. "Whenever a partnership was needed a few of their batsmen stood up. When it was needed from their bowlers to bowl consistently in one area that's what they did. "They always stepped up when needed." Clarke, who said he was driven by his promise to lead from the front, led the series Australian runscorers ahead of fellow veterans Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey. "It's nice for the senior players to be scoring a lot of runs," he said.
Hence, after yet another shambolic display with the bat that saw them put up their 7th score below 300 in 8 innings, the Indian cricket team did nothing to redress the imminent clean sweep of the series, which is now the second in as many series abroad. They were comprehensively beaten in all departments of the game and with some aged Indian batting greats all set to bid goodbye to their illustrious careers in the near future, the team has got its task cut out to rebuild with some promising young players in the future.
