Twitter Questions Team India’s Selection as Aus Level Series

Australia trounced India by 146 runs to level the four-test series 1-1 on the final day on Tuesday in the second Test in Perth.

Needing 287 runs to win, India, resuming the day on 112/5, was skittled out for 140 as fast bowler Mitchel Starc (3/46) and offspinner Nathan Lyon (3/39) made a mockery of the India second innings.

Fellow fast bowlers Josh Hazlewood (2/24) and Pat Cummins (2/25) contributed in a supporting role.

India lost the last six wickets for 42 runs as Australia hurried to its first victory in seven test matches since beating South Africa in Durban in March this year.

Australia was home for lunch after outplaying the No.1 test team in the world.

India won the first test in Adelaide by 31 runs last week.
