Matthew Hayden was awarded Man of the Match for his 125 and 47 runs knock in the 1st and 2nd innings.

The next match begins on January 2 in Sydney.

Yuvraj Singh Faces Disciplinary Action for his Dissent to caught behind in 1st Innings against Australia

India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has been charged with dissent following his reaction to an umpiring decison in the first test against Australia and has been called for a disciplinary hearing with Match Referee Mike Proctor today.

Umpire Billy Bowden ruled Yuvraj caught behind off Stuart Clark on Thursday. But Yuvraj Singh, who was yet to open his account, was not really convinced with the decision and paused for for several before leaving the ground. However, snickometer suggested a thin edge.

If found guilty, Yuvraj might lose part of his match fee, media reports in Australia said.
