VVS Laxman batted through back pain to guide India to victory

VVS Laxman struck a superb unbeaten 73 as India fought back from the brink of defeat to beat Australia by one wicket in a thrilling first Test in Mohali.

Laxman was ably assisted by tail-ender Ishant Sharma as India rallied from 124-8, but when he was dismissed for 31 the hosts still required 11 to win.

But Laxman and last man Pragyan Ojha held their nerve to see India to their victory target of 216.

The victory gives India a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

More to follow.
