Australia wrapped up the First Test at MCG taking 1 hour and 15 minutes of the final session to remove the last four wickets of India. The Aussies eased to a 122-run win as the Indian batting failed to deliver the goods chasing a target of 292 on a sporting drop-in pitch at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. James Pattinson who took six wickets along with useful batting in both the innings picked up the Man of the Match award. Over 47.5 Nathan Lyon to U YadavCAUGHT, this time it looks like a clean hit from Umesh Yadav on a bent knee, and it looks like a sure six, but instead its a brilliant running and jumping catch from Warner to his right at long on! So Australia win the First Test by 122 runs to go 1-0 up in the 4-Test Series.
