Paine relief: Australia win for 1st time since 'sandpapergate'

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

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

Australian captain Tim Paine says: "It's a big relief, because the first Test win has taken a while. Australia played better cricket than us and deserved to win".

Uncapped paceman Chris Tremain will continue to remain out of the squad after being released before the Perth match, Cricket Australia (CA) said in a statement.

"Virat Kohli could not do that with Tim Paine, shaking the Australian captain's hand but barely making eye contact with him". "But if we have to make some changes I am sure will talk about that at some stage", he said.

Batsman Rohit Sharma and spinner Ravichandran Ashwin were also ruled out before the Perth Test. India have called opener Mayank Agarwal and all-rounder Hardik Pandya to bolster their batting.

ESPNcricinfo has accessed the video in which the stump mic has captured the players abusing each other during a break in play when Nathan Lyon was having his helmet checked after a blow on the head.

The test was the first at the new 60,000-seat stadium located in Burswood after a 47-year run at the WACA but crowds were disappointing especially when fierce heat blighted the early part of the match.

It was an outstanding bowling effort by man-of-the-match Lyon who claimed a match bag of 8-106 after he took 5-67 in the first innings to secure a crucial 43-run lead to tilt the balance in Australia's favour. The series is now levelled at one each with two matches to go. The two players in question are fast bowler Ishant Sharma and spinner Ravindra Jadeja who was in the field as a substitute fielder. Australia had scored 326 runs in their first innings, and 243 runs in their second innings to post a 287-run target for visitors.

Both captains played down the onfield sledging with Kohli saying, 'As long as there's no swearing and personal attack it is fine. "However, I feel that an India cap, an Indian blazer has to be made a lot more valuable.by carrying players and taking 19 players, I do believe that the selection committee has not handled their responsibility well", he said.

The next Test between India and Australia starts in Melbourne on Boxing Day.
