Cricket-Australia beat India in thriller to equal world record

SYDNEY, Jan 6 (Reuters) - Australia beat India by 122 runs in an amazing finish to the second test on Sunday to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and equal their own world record of 16 successive victories.

Ricky Ponting’s side sealed the win with just seven balls left in the match when India collapsed to be all out for 210 on a turning Sydney Cricket Ground pitch.

The tourists looked to have salvaged a draw when they were seven wickets down with just two overs to go but part-time spinner Michael Clarke dismissed the last three batsmen in just five balls. (Reporting by Julian Linden; Editing by Martin Petty)
