'Looking for 4-0 sweep'

Former captain Anil Kumble is impressed by the Indian team’s performance against the visiting Australians in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy and is looking forward to a clean sweep in the four-Test series.

“It will be a great thing. To beat Australia, forget Australia, let alone any Test series to win 4-0 is something very special. So India has an opportunity to achieve that. And it is great to see everyone doing really well at the moment. I am looking forward to a 4-0 victory,” Kumble said here.

The former leg-spinner lavished praise on Delhi opener Shikhar Dhawan, who notched up the fastest-ever Test century on debut in the third Test in Mohali.

“He played brilliantly. It is unfortunate that he is not playing in this game, (in his) hometown (because of injury). I really watched that (Mohali innings).... Fantastic batting. To go out there and just play the way he did in his first game was impressive,” he said.
