Australia beat India by 4 wickets, Take Unassailable 2-0 series Lead

Australia beat India by four wickets to win the second Test at Brisbane on Day 4 on Saturday. The game was nicely poised until Mitch Johnson forced the Indian batting implosion in the fourth morning session. Following up his counter-attacking fifty, Mitch scalped 4/61 to break the back of the Indian batting. He loves playing at the Gabba. The last time when Australia played here, all-round Mitch sunk England in the Ashes, claiming the Man of the Match award as well. He is a strong contender today too.

And what a start to Steve Smith's captaincy career. Smith led the way for his side in the first innings with a sterling 133 and sharing 148 with Mitch Johnson to take the game by the scruff of its neck. India began reasonably well, closing out day 3 at 71/1. What transpired next was an all too familiar Indian collapse.
