Australia were never allowed to breathe. Even the slightest of opportunities that they sniffed, India made things extremely difficult before they were absolutely hammered in the second innings in Nagpur with the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja folding the visitors in a single session.

India, however, are yet to confirm their place in the final of the WTC for the second successive time. The runners-up from the previous cycle have to win at least two of the remaining three matches of the Border-Gavaskar series to book their place.

"This is probably the Plan A they (Australia) had, I am sure they'll introspect and try to come out with different plans next game. I've experimented a lot, but to stay at the moment is very important. If you keep flying and wanna make plans in the air, sometimes it can go amiss. I expect Australia to come back really hard and strong," Ashwin said after the match.
