India vs Australia, 4th Test, Day 2
From the moment the coin landed in India skipper Virat Kohli's favour, the Test has taken on a predictable tone. Whichever team has won the toss in the series has batted first and gone on to win the match.
In the fourth and final Test in Sydney, Virat Kohli declared on 622 for seven an hour before the close of play when Ravindra Jadeja was dismissed for 81 and Usman Khawaja (5) and Marcus Harris (19) pushed Australia to stumps on 24 without loss.
