Tim Paine Responds Brilliantly To Vile Abuse From Indian Fan

Tim Paine finally registered his first Test win as captain. It was a clinical effort from his teammates as Australia thrashed India by 146 runs in the second Test to level the four-match series.

Chasing 287, India resumed the final day on a precarious 115 for 5. Rishabh Pant and Hanuma Vihari had started the proceedings with the bat. But the writing was very much on the wall when both the batsmen departed inside 40 minutes. India eventually lost their last five wickets for just 21 runs.  The visitors were dismissed for 140, with spinner Nathan Lyon claiming 3/39 to finish with eight wickets for the match and guide the home team to a drought-breaking success, their first in seven Tests spanning almost 10 months.
