Australia 197 (Khawaja 60, Jadeja 4-78, Umesh 3-12) and 78 for 1 (Head 49*) beat India 109 (Kuhnemann 5-16, Lyon 3-35) and 163 (Pujara 59, Lyon 8-64) by nine wickets

Indore: Australia sealed their place in June's World Test Championship final with a nine-wicket win over India in the third Test in Indore.

Chasing 76 to win, Travis Head made 49 not out and Marnus Labuschagne an unbeaten 28 as the tourists won before lunch on day three.

Usman Khawaja was caught behind second ball but Head and Labuschagne shared an unbroken stand of 78 to see them home.

They will face India or Sri Lanka in the final at The Oval in London.

India will secure their place if they beat Australia in the fourth and final Test of the series, which starts on 9 March in Ahmedabad.

However, a draw or defeat, coupled with Sri Lanka beating New Zealand 2-0 in their two-Test series, which starts at 22:00 GMT on 8 March, would see Sri Lanka qualify instead.

The World Test Championship final will take place between 7 and 11 June - a week before Australia face England in the opening Ashes Test at Edgbaston.

India currently lead the four-Test series 2-1 after big wins in the first two matches.

Australia dominated the third Test after bowling India out for 109 on the opening day, eventually establishing an 88-run first-innings lead.

Off-spinner Nathan Lyon then took 8-64 in the second innings to leave a comfortable chase for his side.
