    India v Australia, 1st Test, Day 5: as it happened

    MS Dhoni\'s double century, R Ashwin\'s match haul of 12 wickets and Virat Kohli\'s hundred were the highlights of India\'s comprehensive victory.

    Facing a 192-run deficit after MS Dhoni's 224, the tourists eked out a 40-run lead with one wicket remaining on day four in Chennai.

    India's spinners grabbed nine wickets for 175 runs in 65.5 overs to set up hopes of a four-day victory, but were left frustrated by a stubborn last-wicket stand of 57 between Moises Henriques and Nathan Lyon.
