For one brief moment in the final Test in Nagpur at tea on day four Ricky Ponting held an advantage.
But in a bid to avoid being banned for the next Test due to slow over rates he surprisngly turned to his most ineffective bowlers Michael Hussey and Cameron White.
The momentum immediately switched decisively to India which drove their advantage home to take a 20 series victory.
Mark Waugh wraps up at the end of the test match by concluding that India clearly outplayed Australia in the series.
