Deserved win for India

India won the Test series against Australia after winning the fourth and last Test in Nagpur by 172 runs.

Going into the final day I thought Australia had a good chance of at least securing a draw but Australia were all out for 355.

Matthew Hayden was the only player to shine in Australia's second innings with his 77 with no other batsmen managing to go past 30 runs. Harbhajan Singh was once again Australia's tormentor taking four wickets.

I think in terms of the whole series India did well when it mattered most and had the better all round team.

I still think that Australia should have won the drawn first Test because I think thats where they played their best cricket and from there I think it just went downhill.

For me the highlights for the fourth Test was Jason Krejza's eight wickets in the first innnings and also Sachin Thendulkar's century which was his 40th.

The next Test series for Australia will now be against New Zealand and I think its a good Test for Australia to redeem themselves before facing South Africa in the main series of the summer.
