India have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in their four match series with Australia, beating the hosts comprehensively by an innings and 135 runs in the second Test at Hyderabad with 5 sessions to spare. Australia came into Day 4 at 74-2, 192 runs behind India from their first innings, and suffered a dramatic collapse in the morning session, losing 8 wickets for just 57 runs with Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin doing the bulk of the damage.
India made the perfect start to the fourth day with MS Dhoni's decision to give the ball to Ishant Sharma first up instead of deploying spin at both ends paying rich dividends. The lanky pacer was able to extract a lot of reverse swing with the 30 over old ball. After beating Ed Cowan a couple of times, Ishant snared Shane Watson, caught down the leg side without adding to his overnight score of 9.
