Congrats to Sachin Tendulkar once again for completing his 6th 200 in his career.

Even the Eagles visited the stadium to watch him get to 200.

Murali Vijay seems to be a good prospect for future. Seems have big match temperament. Another "young" find for the test. Lets see if he also cope up in the middle order, where we will really fall short of players.

Really disappointed by the performance of the tail enders. At one stage when master was there, expected a lead of about an 100 or more.

Lets see some good work by spinners now.

It will be a tough task for India on Day 5.
Now Australia having 200+ runs lead and still 1 more wicket in hand. Anything above 220+ runs will be a dauting task for India. Hope overconfidence + pressure doesn't ruin India's win.
Yesterday afternoon had been to stadium to watch the match with PRSNCK. Thanks for the ticket prsnck

Smile India need 207 to win

Australia all out for 223. Lead of 206 runs.

India will start the run chase and no team has chased such a total on the last day at bangalore. So this is going to be exciting. Hope Sehwag clicks and plays a match winner.

As I write India is off to a good start with a four int he first over by M. Vijay.

Luck didn't favour the brave. He was dropped by Hussey once & now he's out for 7 runs.

Just 51 runs needed.
I hope, any miracle will not happen from Aussie side and India will lead to victory easily.

Its all over. India wins the 2nd test match by 7 wickets.

What a whitewash. Is it the first time that it has happened?

Find of the match: Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara.

Pillar of the match: Sachin Tendulkar.

Thumbs up

Awesome performance from Team India and happy to see Sachin scoring the winning runs.

We played as a team and Australians were simply not good enough. Even though they fought hard they lack the class of the Aussie sides of yore to overwhelm us.

Vijay & Pujara played really well and are certainly great assets for the future.

Bowlers stuck to their task and Zaheer led them with aplomb and bowled superbly. Excellent performances from Harbhajan & Ojha too.

Overall a great win for India at their most unsuccessful venue on Indian soil

Now where are the perennial Sachin critics??

Good to see a "good" first impression from Pujara!
He does have temperament and talent. Needs more opportunities and so does Murali Vijay.

Did anyone get the feeling that this series was too much timid with smiles all over ?

Looks like ICC got what they wanted.
