India's bowlers needed only 4.3 overs on Sunday to claim a 137-run victory over Australia on the fifth day of the third Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

World No 1-ranked India has taken a 2-1 lead in the four-match series and retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Virat Kohli is aiming to become the first India captain to win a Test series in Australia.

The fourth and final Test starts in Sydney on 3 January.

"The job is not done yet," Kohli said moments after winning the match.

Australia had resumed on the rain-delayed final day of play at 12.55 pm in a hopeless position at 258-8, requiring 141 runs to win.

Tail-ender Pat Cummins added two runs to his overnight score before he was caught at first slip off Jasprit Bumrah's bowling for 63 at 261-9.

Nathan Lyon, who had shared a defiant 46-run stand for the ninth wicket with Cummins, fell in the next over for seven. Lyon was caught behind off the bowling of fast bowler Ishant Sharma.

To celebrate, commemorate and commend India's magnificent triumph at the MCG, here's a look at some the best reactions from the Twitterati:

Unreal debut year for Jasprit Bumrah

The numbers that the Australian batting unit will find it hard to munch on

Best bowling-attack in the world

And Bumrah in his first year as a Test cricketer is the leader of the pack. Finishes with best bowling figures by an Indian in Australia

Any haters still doubting the credibility of the domestic set up?

'The fab four of Indian bowling' that's nicely put by Sanjay Manjrekar

Gushing praise from the former Caribbean quick for the very terrific Jasprit Bumrah

Virat Kohli the leading light

What a special win for the Indian side! VVS Laxman literally providing perspective of a wint at the MCG.
