Virat Kohli, Tim Paine exchange verbal blows as Perth Test heads for nail-biting finish

Australia won a Test match for the first time since March's ball-tampering controversy as they beat India in Perth to level the series at 1-1.

Australia had scored 326 runs in their first innings, and India replied with 283 runs, thanks to Kohli's 25th Test hundred, thus conceding a lead of 43 runs.

Marcus Harris, Aaron Finch and Travis Head each compiled half-centuries in the first innings and Usman Khawaja grabbed another as Australia tallied 243 in the second.

Even Kuldeep Yadav, who was seen carrying drinks on the ground and Mohammed Shami, who was bowling at that moment, found stepping in to separate the two confronting players.
