In the recent test series against Australia, India won their first match in Melbourne after nearly 3 decades, claiming the top spot in the world. India won the match by a massive 137 runs and took a 2-1 lead against Australia in their own home ground.
India had set a commendable target of 399 runs which the Aussies struggled to chase. After the washout due to rains, Australia were all out of players at 261 runs, which was what led India to victory. Not only that, the well balanced Indian side played well and the bowlers did their part in getting the other team all out as fast as possible.
India needed 4.3 overs to take the final two wickets as Jasprit Bumrah (3/53) finished with a score of 9 for 86. Ishant Sharma (2/40) took the final wicket as India won their 150th test match. Additionally, Jasprit Bumrah became the first Indian Pacer to take 9 wickets in a single test match in Australia.
