India won the fourth and final Test against Australia by six wickets to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar Trophy by a thumping 4-0 margin at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

The hosts needed only 187 deliveries to chase down their 155-run target, albeit they lost four wickets in the process.

Glenn Maxwell got Australia an early breakthrough to dent India's chase. Murali Vijay (11) went for a suicidal reverse sweep against the spinner that missed his bat and went on to hit the stumps. It was an unnecesary shot and charged up the Australians who were baying for more blood.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli then survived a couple of close shaves as Shane Watson went with spin from both ends. Maxwell and Nathan Lyon probed the two Indian batsmen on a crumbling-by-the-minute pitch for a few overs, before the counter-attack began.
