India win third Test to retain Border-Gavaskar Trophy

A clinical and "obsessed" India mopped up Australia's tail to win the third Test in Melbourne on Sunday by 137 runs and take an unassailable 2-1 lead into the final clash at Sydney.

"We always believed this is very possible because of the talent that we have in the side", Kohli said.

Nearly all the teams have struggled to bat in the last innings of a Test this year as we witnessed multiple batting collapses from top cricketing nations like India, Pakistan, South Africa, and Australia.

In Melbourne, helped by a slew of partnerships, India first batted the host out of the contest before Bumrah and company blurred its scant hopes of a comeback in the slipstream of their own speed.

"The silver lining is that we do have world-class players that are available soon to come back into this side, and clearly, when they do, they will make a huge difference".

"So we've got to learn from that, and get better really quickly before we go to Sydney".

"They've proved over the last one year that they can be fast, and they can be mean, and they can be consistent", Arun said.

"As we saw today I think the pitch has started deteriorating and has variable bounce on it".

But Paine wasn't dwelling on the vexed issue, noting that Steve Smith and David Warner's suspensions had also provided opportunities.

"It's a frustration", Paine said. I made my India debut in Australia, so great feeling. "We've never been in this position, we've worked really hard". "The message is it takes time, you can't just rebuild a pitch and a number of pitches and have them ready for next year". We'd like to get to Sydney, win the toss and have the same thing - reversed.

With the footmarks continuing to grow on the MCG pitch as well as the uneven bounce being more obvious, India's openers ran from the field and came out to bat 10 minutes later.

"We knew that it would be tough for Australia, but credit to our bowlers, especially Jasprit", Kohli said on Sunday. We want to win the last Test match as well, if an opportunity comes our way.

"There's been a hell of a lot of talk about our batting and our top six, but we've seen if we can get Virat and Pujara out there's some holes in the opposition batting as well".

Three Tests into the series, India's players dominate the run-scoring and wicket-taking charts.

Paine's batting record per dismissal is in a high class and depending on his second innings he could finish the calendar year having faced more than 91.5 balls per dismissal - a figure that only two other wicketkeeper-batsman this century (Kumar Sangakkara and Jonny Bairstow) have reached.
