KL Rahul’s sixth half-century of the series and a quickfire knock from Ajinkya Rahane guided India to a comfortable 8-wicket victory over Australia in the fourth Test at Dharamsala. With this win, the hosts have also bagged the series 2-1.

Set a target of 106, India chased down the total quite comfortably in the first session of the fourth day. Resuming the day on  19 for no loss, India openers- KL Rahul and Murali Vijay- began cautiously and added 27 runs to the overnight score before Vijay edged a Pat Cummins delivery straight to the Matthew Wade. In the same over, Cheteshwar Pujara had to return to the pavilion for a duck after Glenn Maxwell ran him out following a horrible mix-up. But Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane did not give the visitors another chance to put pressure on the hosts as they shared an unbeaten partnership of runs to take India home. Rahul was unbeaten on 51 while Rahane scored 38 from only 27 balls.
