Aus vs Ind, 4th Test, Day 5: as it happened

India lost their last four wickets in the first hour of play on Day 5 of the fourth Test to lose the series 4-0.

6:15 a.m. Hilfenhaus strikes! Zaheer tries to pull but miscues and the ball went straight in the air for Warner to complete a dolly. India 193 for 9.

Zaheer Khan c Warner b Hilfenhaus 15 (18)

6 a.m. There is discernible change in Zaheer's effort today after he was criticised for not showing a fight during his previous knocks in the series. India 178 for 8.

5:46 a.m. Siddle comes to the party! Saha walks back. Another victim for Haddin. India 170 for 8.

Wriddhiman Saha c Haddin b Siddle 3 (20)

5:37 a.m. Seven down! Caught behind! Harris doesn't take long to strike and India lose Ishant without an addition to their overnight score. Wicketkeeper Haddin takes a simple chance. India 166 for 7.

Ishant Sharma c Haddin b Harris 2 (12)

5 a.m. This is the last day: of the Border Gavaskar Test series, of another nightmare for India overseas; of Tendulkar, Dravid and Laxman playing together in Australia or perhaps anywhere; of Australia's redemption in world cricket and as per unconfirmed reports, the last day of Dravid's Test career.

Australia are just four wickets away from a demolition job. Another whitewash awaits India as they have three full sessions to negotiate with just four wickets in hand and the target of 500 still 334 runs away.

Day 4 Round-up

Chasing 500 to win the final match – or five sessions to bat out a draw, India got off to another bad start. Virender Sehwag struck a streaky 62 but the other batsmen once again surrendered tamely to end the day at 166 for 6.

Nathan Lyon took 3 for 57 and Ryan Harris 2 for 25 after Australia declared their second innings at 167 for 5 earlier on Friday with Ponting scoring another half-century and staying not out at 60.
