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.

India, chasing 287 for victory, began the final day on 112-5 but were bowled out for 140 to lose by 146 runs.

Australia needed only 15 overs to wrap up the win – Tim Paine’s first since succeeding Steve Smith as captain.

“It’s a relief more than anything,” said Paine. “It’s taken a while with everything that’s happened.”

The next Test in the four-match series takes place in Melbourne, starting on Boxing Day.
