Australia have already lost the series 3-0 at the hands of India. But skipper Michael Clarke is still enthusiastic about the fourth and final encounter at Delhi, saying that he wants to return home with at least one victory.

According to the pundits, the Aussies are on their worst tour to India. They were totally helpless in the opening two games, as the Indian spinners bamboozled them.

Showing good improvement, Australia managed to get a handy total in the first innings of the third game. However, the bowlers could not raise the standards and let the home side pile up a massive first innings total.

The Kangaroos collapsed in the second innings, and could set a tiny total of 132 for the Men in Blue. It was never difficult for the home side, as the Indian achieved the target with plenty of ease.

India are now 3-0 up in the series, with the fourth and final encounter to be played at Delhi. Clarke is determined to avoid 4-0 whitewash, and said that the boys have learnt lessons from their mistake and will hopefully improve in the last game.

"It’s very hard when you are losing. You want to win every game. The boys are disappointed as we have not had as much success as we would have really liked from this tour. But its not for lack of work, we are working hard and trying to get better and like
I say we would really love to finish on a high in last Test at Delhi," Clarke said after losing the third Test by six wickets.

"It is disappointing that we can’t win the series, we can’t level the series, but I think the players have learnt a lot. We would like to go home with a win in our last Test in Delhi," he added.

The skipper had plenty to worry about, but he extracted a few positives as well. He was pleased to see his teammates putting up good fight while defending a small total of 132.  The final encounter is set to be played from March 22nd to March
26th.
