Stern words from Michael Clarke. This is unacceptable. There will be no rest. They won't get better sitting on couches. With that promise from Clarke, I fare thee well. Cheers.
Quotes from presentation
"Really happy about it," says Cheteshwar Pujara, the Man of the Match. "There was a bit of pressure on me. I just got married, and my wife was worried I should perform. We knew that the new ball would do a bit. The plan was to not lose any wickets in that first session. My natural game to play that fast. Scoring those many runs in domestic runs has given me the experience to help me keep the tempo. It was a very important partnership with Vijay, our communication was good and it set the platform."
"It was important to get off to a good start," says MS Dhoni. "Bhuvneshwar provided that. You don'tsee fast bowlers getting too many in these conditions. We often talk about long partnerships. If you get 40-50, you have to score big. That's what Pujara and Vijay did. That resulted in a massive partnership, which gave us the freedom to accelerate yesterday. It was very important to not give their seamers wickets, and I think they saw that period off really well. After that they could dictate terms. Very good bowling performance. It was important to start today's play really well, and Ishant gave us the important breakthrough. I think I have got a very good side. Yes we have gone through a period we haven't won many games. Credit goes to the team and the support staff. And winning most matches as captain is a collective effort, and credit goes to each and everyone."
"India deserve a lot of credit," says Michael Clarke. "They outplayed us in every facet of the game. There is no doubt we have a lot of work to do. In all facets of the game. There will certainly be no stone left unturned. The batsmen haven't put enough runs on, and there is no excuse for that. There will be no break between the Test matches. There will be a lot of hard work, I can assure you. You don't get better sitting on the couch. We have had guys get in and out without making big scores. That's unacceptable."
Jubilant scenes for India. Ishant Sharma has an arm around Jadeja. He could carry Jadeja with one arm. The support staff all celebrate inside the dressing room. Kohli has plucked out one stump for Pujara, who hasn't taken the field. Dhoni doesn't merely shakes hands with Vijay, he is absolutely slapping them. Such relief on their faces after the last two years. Hang around for the presentation
MS Dhoni now has most wins for an Indian captain. Australia become the first team to lose by an innings after declaring their first innings closed. They have failed to put together as many runs as Pujara and Vijay did. This is as comprehensive as they come
Mark: "India is doing a service to us, they are waking up Cricket Australia!! Wake up guys, we cant play poor than this!!!!"
India now have a hand on the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Lots of analysis to come from Sharda and Brydon. Before that, here's your final chance to win in our Caption Contest on Facebook. Have a go, and a copy of Timeless Steel could be yours.

Nithi: "I'm remembering India's last Australia tour. So excited. Thank you Jadeja."
Two minutes to go to the scheduled lunch break, but we will keep on playing until noon if a wicket doesn't fall
Over the wicket now
Realist: "In hindsight Clarke should've declared overnight at 2-75...."
