The Indians came a cropper while defending three back-to-back 300-plus totals and in the fourth match in Canberra, they bungled inexplicably from a position of strength to fail in chasing as well.
     
And it would take a special resolve to recover from the demoralizing debacles to manage at least one positive result before the three-match Twenty20 series starting January 26 in Adelaide.
