India has retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after cruising to a six-wicket victory over Australia on the third day of the second Test in Delhi on Sunday (February 19). India now holds an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match rubber.

Ravindra Jadeja’s seven-wicket haul turn it around for India as Australia ‘swept’ itself to a massive batting collapse – from 61/1 at the start of play to 113 all out. Ravindra Jadeja was the bowling hero with a career-best 7/42. India reached the 115-run target without many troubles as Cheteshwar Pujara, in his 100th Test, hit the winning runs.
