None of the three matches had gone to the fifth day, with the first two Tests in Melbourne and Sydney ending inside four days while the third in the bouncy WACA ended in less than two and half days.

Good crowds have turned out for the first two Tests in Melbourne and Sydney and again at the WACA, in Perth, 14,352 people paid to watch third day's play in the third Test despite the very good chance that the Australians would roll up the remaining six Indian batsmen before afternoon drinks.
