India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said the team was focussed on completing a 4-0 whitewash of Australia in the series' final game in New Delhi.

India romped to victory on day five of the third Test here Monday even though the opening day was washed out by rain.

A 4-0 result is a very much possibility for the hosts with the fourth Test beginning Friday. Australia had whitewashed India at home.

"We don't think about revenge in sport," said Dhoni after the match.

"We have exploited the conditions well so far. Even the fast bowlers have done well despite conditions helping spinners. Ravindra Jadeja's inclusion has helped. It meant we were playing with five specialist bowlers."

On the wicket and Shikhar Dhawan's stupendous innings on debut, Dhoni said: "It was one of the best batting exhibitions when it comes to batting in pairs, Vijay (Murali) and Dhawan. The pitch got better to bat on as the match progressed. There were foot marks, but I don't think it was alarming."

"Bhuvneshwar Kumar's wickets in the second innings helped us win the game," he said referring to Kumar's effort that left Australia struggling at stumps on day four.

Dhoni was open to changes in New Delhi. "We may try a few things in Delhi but it is important to win all Tests."
