Australia name unchanged 13-man squad for remaining two Tests against India

Virat Kohli

India 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 nearly 10 months.

"It's probably more of a relief at the moment, that first win has taken a while with everything that has happened so really proud of all our players and staff", Paine said.

However, Vihari added just four to his overnight score and fell to Mitchell Starc (3-46) for 28.

Rishabh Pant, who raced to 30 runs from 61 balls, was well caught by Peter Handscomb off Nathan Lyon (3-39) and an over later Umesh Yadav (2) popped a shot back to Starc for two.

"We thought it was out", Nathan Lyon said after taking 5-67.

"We've got some inexperienced players in terms of Test matches played, to get a win like that against the best Test team in the world is going to give them a huge boost of confidence".

Paine admitted there had been some "crossed fingers" when Australia batted on the opening day, the unknown quantities of the Perth pitch at the forefront of everyone's mind.

Ishant Sharma was in no mood to hang around and backed right away, edging a Pat Cummins (2-25) delivery through to wicketkeeper Paine for a duck.

"[Our bowlers] are outstanding as a pack, to see them dominate was really good to see and something we want to build on". They deserved to win.




"As a team, I think we played well in patches", Kohli said.

"We had the belief we could do it", he said.

Usman Khawaja and Tim Paine negotiated a wicketless morning session on Monday, advancing Australia to 4-192 before all hell broke loose in the first over after lunch. Lyon has also taken 80 wickets against India in Test cricket - the second highest by a spinner.

He joins Muttiah Muralitharan as the only other bowler in history to grab five wickets against India seven times in Tests.

Despite the hosts' loss in the Adelaide Test, Lyon had picked up eight wickets and will be a key bowler for Australia throughout the series.

Earlier, Mohammed Shami's career-best figures of 6-56 had helped the visitors bowl out Tim Paine's men for 243 runs.

Both captains played down the onfield sledging with Kohli saying, 'As long as there's no swearing and personal attack it is fine.

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