So that is it from us for today. The Indians, just like the ODIs were dominant here as well. Australia's problems against the spin prevails and that was very evident in this one too. It's their batting which is letting them down and Warner would hope for a better show when these two meet next on the 10th of October in Guwahati. Will we see the Aussies leveling the series? Join us at 1900 local (0130 GMT) to find out. Till then, goodbye and take care!
