India v Australia: Ravichandran Ashwin leads home side to dramatic win to level Test series

India bowled Australia out for 112 in Bangalore to win a dramatic second Test by 75 runs and level the series at 1-1. The hosts resumed their second innings on 213-4 and added 25 before wickets tumbled and they were dismissed for 274, with Josh Hazlewood taking 6-67.

Australia needed 188 to win and, after a promising start, were slowed down by losing regular wickets, including captain Steve Smith for 28. Their last six wickets went for 11 runs as Ravichandran Ashwin took 6-41.

India pace bowler Umesh Yadav also played a key part as he took the wickets of Smith and Shaun Marsh in the second innings. Marsh was given out leg before wicket but the decision would have been overturned had he chosen to review(BBC,2017).
