#INDvsAUS 4th Test: India beat Australia

Dharmashala.  A clinical India today regained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, beating Australia by eight wickets in the deciding fourth Test here to clinch one of the most controversial and hard-fought bilateral contests in recent times. 

It was India's seventh Test series win in a row -- continuing the dominance that started in 2015 with Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies, New Zealand, England and Bangladesh being annihilated. 

Needing 87 runs on the fourth day to reach a modest victory target of 106, opener Lokesh Rahul (51 not out) dominated from the start with a flurry of boundaries and finished with six half-centuries in the series.  The match ended in just three days and a session, a reflection of India's distinct upperhand in the 2-1 triumph.
