Australia has survived a tricky run chase to win by nine wickets on a spinning pitch and secure a memorable Test victory in India.

Set just 76 to win in the third Test at Holkar Stadium in Indore, Australia brought up only its second win on Indian soil since it claimed the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2004.

Travis Head (49 not out) and Marnus Labuschagne (28 not out) were there at the end for the rare victory, which marked an extraordinary turnaround for Australia after the tourists were humiliated in the first two Tests in Nagpur and Delhi.

A chase of less than 100 would ordinarily have been straightforward, but the pitch spinning and bouncing sharply meant Australia started day three with some apprehension.
