Cricket News: IND vs AUS 2nd Test Twitter reactions: Australia crumble again | Twitter reactions from IND vs AUS 2nd Test at Delhi

How quickly things can change. At one stage, Australia had India on the ropes at 139/7, still 123 runs behind Australia’s first innings score of 263. About 24 hours later, the game – and Australia’s hopes of retaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy – was over.

In what was a horror show in the first session, Pat Cummins’ team lost 9/53 to surrender the advantage they had worked hard to get. A bad hour in India can be mighty costly, and it was the case again for an Australia side that was hell-bent on the sweep. In fact, six players were out to that shot, with Carey, Renshaw and Cummins playing some very poor versions of it.

Ravindra Jadeja, who took a career-best 7/42, bowled his usual accurate deliveries. This time, Australia delivered. The same applied to the excellent R Ashwin, who was unlucky not to win the player of the match award.

For India, it is a big step closer to the World Test Championship Final. For Australia, a 4-0 series defeat leaves them needing New Zealand to pick up at least one draw or win against Sri Lanka.
