It was a first win in eight test matches for Australia. India, who won the opener at Adelaide Oval by 31 runs, have never won a test series in Australia.

The series continues with the Boxing Day test at Melbourne Cricket Ground starting on Dec 26 before concluding with the fourth test in Sydney in the New Year. As always, Twitter was abuzz and here's how Twitterati reacted to Australia's series-levelling win in Perth.
