Australia set 287 runs target for India on a hard pitch

IND vs AUS 2nd Test Australia Beat India by 146 Runs to Level Series 1-1

Australia captain Tim Paine shakes hands with India counterpart Virat Kohli after the test series was levelled 1-1 in Perth.

Australia were bowled out for 243 in their second innings during the second Test against India, meaning that the visitors needed 287 runs to win.

India were bundled out for 283, shy of the Aussies' total by 43 runs, thanks to the brilliant bowling of Lyon who claimed 5/67 on a wicket the Indian's opted against bringing in a full time spinner.

It was Paine's first Test win in five matches since taking over from the suspended Steve Smith in South Africa, and also the first victory for new coach Justin Langer, coming in his hometown.

Australia lost 4-61 in the final session before Usman Khawaja and Tim Paine, unbeaten on 41 and eight respectively, thwarted the prospect of a more-dramatic collapse.

"I'm relieved personally", he said.

"The first two tests in this series have been tough". "We will have to pick what we think is the best combination to win both of those Tests". We thought four quicks would be enough. The home side bowlers wasted no time and in 15 overs picked the remaining five Indian wickets. Play the game. You guys are the captains!'

Nancy Pelosi Has Struck a Deal With Rebel Democrats
The term limits would not extend to committee chairmen, a proposal that has been deeply controversial among House Democrats. Pelosi, Hoyer and Clyburn served for two terms in leadership when Democrats controlled the House from 2007-11.

It was during the following Test at Newlands that Cameron Bancroft was caught using sandpaper to alter the ball and Australian cricket was plunged into turmoil.

Former Australia paceman Mitchell Johnson has ripped into Virat Kohli, saying the Indian skipper was disrespectful and made to look silly during the test in Perth.

Australia´s best result in the four previous Tests since the scandal was narrowly hanging on for a draw against Pakistan in Dubai. In the past too, Jadeja was seen having a go at Suresh Raina during a One Day International. A Sunday of fire-spitting bouncers and intense cricket has left the second Test on the razor's edge. Mitchell Starc removed Vihari to begin on a positive note.

The right-hander tried to flick the ball through the leg side and only succeeded in ballooning a simple catch to Marcus Harris at midwicket.

India copped a lot of criticism for their selection and primarily because of the fact that they did not play a spinner on a surface where Nathan Lyon was the man of the match for his 8-wicket haul.

The next Test between India and Australia starts in Melbourne on Boxing Day before the series concludes in Sydney from January 3.
