Meanwhile, Australia is doing everything they can to tackle Ashwin-Jadeja threat as the visitors spent time practicing on Nagpur pitch before leaving for Delhi.

Apart from Ashwin and Jadeja, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma grabbed limelight for batting brilliantly in the only innings India batted. The skipper smashed his ninth Test century and guided his side to a commanding position at a time when other top-order batters struggled in Nagpur. Ravindra Jadeja made immense contribution with the bat, as well as he stitched a crucial stand with Axar Patel.
For Australia, debutant Todd Murphy was the only takeaway as the off spinner clinched seven wickets in an innings. After all-round dominance in the Nagpur Test by the hosts, the action now moves to Delhi where India has clinched three out last five Test matches, while the two ended in draw.
