For India, Ashwin Fifer's innings and 132-run victory are scripted

As Australia fell to a crushing defeat by an innings and 132 runs in the opening Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, R Ashwin notched his 31st Test five-fer.

Australia was turned over after lunch as the spinners once again took control, this time being led by their offspinner who hadn't gotten a five-fer in ten previous Tests after India's lower order had extended their first innings lead to 223 in the morning session.

In contrast to the first innings, where he was added as the fifth bowler, Ashwin was called on to lead the attack this time. And the move quickly paid off as Usman Khawaja was caught at slip after Ashwin duped him into a second cover drive in the over. If Virat Kohli had managed to maintain a legal take at slip, Ashwin might have been able to get Warner, the other left-handed opener, early as well. He had to wait a little longer, though, as Warner drove him for back-to-back boundaries before LBWing him with a ball that was coming right at him from the wicket's edge. Warner's review was ineffective since DRS determined that it had clipped the leg stump.

Between these takedowns, India struck from the other end as well, with Ravindra Jadeja capturing Marnus Labuschagne exactly in front after the batsman was found guilty of reversing a turner. Meanwhile, Ashwin was unrelenting from beginning to end. After pinging Matt Renshaw when he was trying to defend and forcing him to have a review, he also had Peter Handscomb LBW on the front foot with DRS siding him each time. When Alex Carey missed a reverse sweep and was ruled out of bounds on the field, it worked in his favor once more. With a five-fer, he cemented his domination over the top-order left-handers by sweeping them all up by himself.

Steve Smith was the only batter to maintain any composure amidst the slaughter; he was able to hang on with some assurance at one end. However, the opposite end's fall happened quickly. Pat Cummins was caught behind by Jadeja, and Todd Murphy was also taken out by Axar Patel.

When Jadeja bowled Smith for the second time of the Test by overcoming his inside edge, he almost had his third wicket. Jadeja overstepped for the fifth time in the Test, giving Smith a respite. Australia was happy for a moment, but Shami's LBW catch of Scott Boland in the following over gave India a decisive victory.

Their batting performance contrasted sharply with how India's lower order had performed earlier in the day, when the home team had persevered through nearly 140 overs of batting. On the third morning, India's lower order continued to wag as they added 78 runs despite Todd Murphy finishing with a seven-wicket haul.

Ravindra Jadeja's early wicket came when the offspinner bowled him for 70 with shouldering motions. Early in the day, both offspinners had some traction, which raised the chance of wrapping up the innings quickly.

After that, Mohammed Shami was knocked out by Scott Boland off Nathan Lyon, which was costly. After that, Shami and Axar Patel put up 52 runs together while Shami pounded out three sixes and two fours in his 37. India's lead increased to almost 200 as a result of this.

Finally, Shami stumbled while attempting to strike Murphy and received a top edge that the keeper snatched up.

Then, when Axar became a little more daring in his quest for his first Test century, Mohammad Siraj was able to hold one end up with tight defense. India finished on an even 400, 132 runs more than Australia needed to draw even, and the last wicket combination contributed 20 runs before the all-rounder was eventually bowled by Pat Cummins with a slower ball.
