India vs Australia 3rd Test: Virat Kohli-led India scripted a historic 137-run win against the hosts Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in the Boxing Day Test on Sunday. It was Jasprit Bumrah, who got things done in the right way for India as his 9-wicket haul of the match helped India to register their 150th Test victory. Meanwhile, Cheteshwar Pujara’s gritty 106-run knock which included a 170-run partnership with captain Kohli played a decisive role in the context of the match. This is the first time India have managed to retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy on Australia. The win at MCG also meant Virat Kohli’s most successful overseas captain with Sourav Ganguly with 11 away wins.
