On Day 5 of Perth Test, Australia defeated India by 146 runs in the second Test to level the four-match series at 1-1 at Optus Stadium.

India were dismissed for 140 runs in their second innings on the fifth and final day.

 

Earlier on Day 3, Australia were convincingly in command as Cheteshwar Pujara (4) too, became a victim for the hosts as he edged behind a superb Josh Hazlewood delivery to give a simple catch to wicketkeeper Tim Paine. Following an early blow to India, Virat Kohli and Murali Vijay tried to steady the innings with a 35-run partnership. However, Nathan Lyon broke the building momentum by scalping the big wicket of the Indian skipper for 17 runs.
