Australia declared their second innings closed at 251 for six before the start of play on the fifth and final day of the match, handing India a target of 349 for victory.

India rarely looked like succeeding in their record run chase but batted through the day to avoid defeat, surviving a batting collapse in the final session to finish match at 252-7.
