Virat Kohli, Tim Paine collide, exchange words before umpire interrupts

Tim Paine & Virat Kohli Got Into A Full On Argy-Bargy At The Perth Test

India lost the 2nd Test by 146 runs on the fifth and final day. Nathan Lyon picked up the man of the match award in Perth. "We never thought about the spin option to be honest".

India needed 175 runs with just five wickets in hand to pull off a miraculous victory, but the loss of Virat Kohli late on day four clearly broke the tourist's resolve. It's a real focus for us to bat for a long period of time.

The strength of Australia's position is reflected by the fact that India have successfully chased down a fourth innings target of more than 200 runs on only 12 occasions.

"I don't think we did touch to be honest". Australia had a collapse of sorts, following that stand, but factoring in the conditions and how the pitch played subsequently, it played a significant part.

India came down under favourites and won the first match in Adelaide.

"We had the belief we could do it, but they were more relentless and put us in trouble". "If it's the same eleven, then great, but if we have to make some changes I am sure will talk about that at some stage". "It stays on the field".

Scroll down for all the action as it panned out, including a fantastic sledge from Tim Paine and a magnificent inswinging Mitchell Starc wicket.

"Really proud of the players and staff".

"He's a real learner, he wants to get better, he's very thorough and he prepares as well as anyone". It was a highly competitive Test match from both teams. "Anyone that says there's anything wrong with that wicket must've been watching a different game". "Day one was a bit of a amusing one, we crossed our fingers".




"Nathan Lyon was probably the difference", Langer said on Fox Cricket.

The home team had resumed at 190 for four after lunch, but Shami cleaned up the tail, removing Khawaja for 72 and Paine, on 37, with sharply rising deliveries. I think his game keeps going to another level.

"It's great to have Lyon in our team".

"It has been a bit of a long time between wins", he said.

It was Australia's first win since March 5 in Durban - before the damaging ball-tampering scandal in South Africa that rocked the nation.

"But it means nothing as soon as we get to Melbourne next week at the MCG".

Lyon was ecstatic to play a role in Australia's win. Australia, who were made to play catch-up come the second Test, however, bounced back well after the disappointment and seized key moments in the Test to go one-up on their opponents.

He felt the current series has been played in much better spirit.
