first_imgBy Rajneesh Gupta After taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, India under Virat Kohli will be looking forward to another comprehensive win that will give them their only fourth clean-sweep in a Test series. All three previous clean-sweeps have also come at home – two under Mohammad Azharuddin and one under MS Dhoni.
