India wrap up third-Test win over Australia
India have seen off the challenge of Australia to win the third Test in Melbourne and take a 2-1 lead in the series.
The hosts began the final day on 258-8 with the target being set at an unlikely 399, and after a rain-delayed start, India only needed 4.3 overs to claim victory.
Jasprit Bumrah was the star of the show from India’s point of view, taking a career-best match total of 9-86.
He leads the Test total for wickets taken so far with 20, three ahead of Australian spinner Nathan Lyon.
Captain Virat Kohli was full of praise for his bowling attack after the game.
"Credit has to go to the bowlers. I think they have been outstanding, especially Jasprit. The way he bowled in this Test match was outstanding," said India captain Virat Kohli, whose side will retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
"The mindset he has at the moment is what separates him from anyone else in the world right now. He looks at a pitch and he doesn't think it's a hard toil, he thinks wickets, he thinks 'how can I get a breakthrough for the team'.
"What I've seen in the last 12 months is the way he has matured in Test cricket and the way that he is bowling so soon, so quickly in his Test career, I think is a very scary sign for all the batsmen around the world.
"I mean, in Test cricket if there is a pitch like Perth, I wouldn't want to face Jasprit Bumrah, to be honest, because once he's on a roll he can really crank it up."
