Their failure in the Boxing Day Test saw them collect some unwanted history, as they became the first Australian team in 26 years not to have a centurion in their home summer Tests by the new year.
India's trio of fast bowlers - Bumrah, Shami and Ishant - has collectively taken 134 wickets in Test matches away from home this year, the most in a calendar year.
In his second over seamer Jasprit Bumrah had Cummins edge to Cheteshwar Pujara, who took a sharp, low catch in the slips to remove the seam bowler for a personal high score of 63. The first one came off Ishant Sharma's bowling to get rid of Aaron Finch, when the batsman tried to play a leg glance.
The Australia skipper was candid enough to acknowledge the top-class show by the Indian bowling attack.
Border feels the current crop of bowlers makes India a risky team especially in conditions that are conducive to fast bowlers.
At one stage, they had accumulated 69 runs in 34 overs, crawling at just above two runs an over.
"I certainly feel proud as a captain when they bowl in partnerships".

During her recent Christmas outing, Meghan and Harry met fans and confirmed that it was nearly time for the baby to pop out. The Duchess confirmed that we're very close to hearing that she has delivered a princess/prince.
Spearheaded by the young Bumrah, who reinforced his reputation as one of the world's top bowlers, Australia were then skittled for just 151. Our first-class cricket is unbelievable, which is why we won. "Credit must go to first-class set-up in India, which challenges our fast bowlers in India, and that helps them overseas", Virat Kohli said.
A part of the reason why Australia did so well first under Steve Waugh and later under Ponting, was that other teams always felt the need to play out of their skins to beat them. We bowl a lot in Ranji-Trophy cricket, and it pays off. "My focus is on the next Test now", said Bumrah. "The best thing about this win would be to bounce back again".
And great stuff here from the Indian players and match officials after the Test match! I started learning slowly, in England it was a different experience.
Anushka Sharma, wife of captain Virat Kohli, also took to social media to express her happiness over the team's win. Work started last year and we're going to aggressively make changes in coming years.
"As players, our job is to play cricket and turn up where we are supposed to turn up". "I think the Sydney wicket, from what we're hearing, might spin a little bit". It's not finished at all. I just think plain and simply we were outplayed and India deserved to win this Test. We don't want to be complacent. "He is a match victor, without doubt", said Kohli. What matters is what we decide inside the dressing room as a team unit.
"It's modern day cricket, you've got to be able to switch between formats, do it really quickly and we've got some players who aren't available and because of that some guys are getting an opportunity before they would have".
Cricket Australia CEO Kevin Roberts had recently said that Smith and Warner's form in the upcoming T20 leagues will be assessed for their global comebacks.
