Mohali, Mar 19: Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said the team is eyeing a 4-0 whitewash of Australia in the fourth and final Test in New Delhi.

India cruised to victory on day five of the third Test in Mohali even though the opening day was washed out by rain.

India won the series 3-0 comfortably and there is a possibility of a whitewash in the final Test beginning on Friday.

"We dont think about revenge in sport," said Dhoni during the post match presentation.

"We have exploited the conditions well so far. Even the fast bowlers have done well despite conditions helping spinners. Ravindra Jadejas inclusion has helped. It meant we were playing with five specialist bowlers, he added.

Dhoni praised the batting performances of Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar did the damage early on during Australia's second innings.

"It was one of the best batting exhibitions when it comes to batting in pairs, Vijay (Murali) and Dhawan. The pitch got better to bat on as the match progressed. There were foot marks, but I dont think it was alarming," he said.

"Bhuvneshwar Kumars wickets in the second innings helped us win the game," he added.

On changes in the team for Delhi Test, Dhoni said: "We may try a few things in Delhi but it is important to win all Tests."
