Riding on Steve O’ Keefe’s emphatic spell who picked a total of 12 wickets in the match, the visiting side Australia took a 1-0 lead in the four-match Test series as they beat India by a massive 333 runs. India were bundled out for 107 runs in the second innings while chasing a target of 441 runs.
Earlier, in the first innings Australia wrapped up India’s innings for a total of 105 in reply to their 260 and later, Australia’s skipper Steve Smith chipped in with a scintillating ton on a ferociously turning Pune track. Here’s how twitter reacted after India were outclassed by the Aussies.

Australia’s 333-run victory is their second biggest victory in terms of runs in India behind the 342-run win in Nagpur in Oct, 2004 #INDvAUS

Sok has an amazing record and wins NSW games on wickets that don’t spin, now showing what he can do when conditions are favourable.
