Cricket: Zaheer cheer.

CRICKET: Zaheer Khan made short work of the Australian tail as India secured a 320-run victory in the Second Test of the Border-Gavaskar series in Mohali today.

Left-arm paceman Zaheer claimed three wickets in his first two overs as Australia crashed from 141 for five overnight to 144 for eight.

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra completed the rout by picking up the last two wickets as Australia, chasing a target of 516 for an improbable win, were eventually bowled out for 195. The Third Test starts in Delhi on October 29.
