Cricket Australia has won every bilateral ODI series it’s played in a long time, and now they’ve done it again, this time scoring back-to-back goals as Australia hammered Australia 3-1 in the second match of the four-test series in Melbourne. The Aussies were chasing a record of 7-1 after the first two Tests but they could not convert the early chances, with both teams scoring two in the first session before James Faulkner and Michael Neser fired Australia back into contention.

Australia took an early lead in the second Test in Brisbane, but India replied. Faulkner then smashed a six over extra-covering fields for four, and Neser fired an unbeaten 62 to break the duck in the second innings.

Australia was in control at the start of the third Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, but India responded and Australia needed to make sure they were able to take an aggressive approach if they wanted to turn around their current form. Australia found it difficult, and India found it easier, and as a result the Aussies were in control right down to the end, and they ran out the hosts 3-1 and won the series 4-1.

Here are some of the key moments from the second Test.
