India won by eight wickets

India beat Australia by eight wickets and with a day to spare in the second Test in Melbourne to level the four-match series at 1-1.

The hosts were bowled out for 200 early on the fourth day, leaving India needing only 70 to win at the MCG.

Mohammed Siraj took 3-37, including Cameron Green, who offered some resistance in making 45 for Australia.

India slipped to 19-2 before Shubman Gill and stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane saw them home.

It was a remarkable turnaround for India, who were bowled out for 36 in an eight-wicket defeat in Adelaide just over a week ago.

The third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground begins on 6 January.
