I'll offer up one

I'll offer up one prediction.

The Big No Show to get bowled for 1 trying to reverse sweep a ball pitched 3 feet outside off.

 You could be right Jack, but the one good thing thus far, the outfield is very quick, if the ball can get between a couple, it's been boundaries so far.

 Hoping maxy clears his head and checks the ego, got plenty of  talent and be great if he solidified the line up in the middle.

 virat (the rat) down and out couldnt happen to a nicer bloke , and why does he need so much white sun screen on his face , is it that some type of envy  thing or "cheating" so he can rub some into the shiny side of the ball every time he handels it ?

Thu, 2017-03-16 18:45

 Hahaha, he must've been itching for the ol' reverse sweep. Could be the making of Maxwell perhaps and the legend of Steve Smith continues to grow. 5th? fastest to 5000 runs and having a stand out series. Certainly one way to respond to the shenanigans of the last Test.

 He tried one reverse sweep and it didn't work, so his next hit was a standard on drive for 6 over the fence.

Thu, 2017-03-16 19:54

 I'm just getting updates on my phone but it sounds as though the wicket has held up well so far, Would be good to build a lead of a 450+ and bat half the day tomorrow...

 

I unlike most of you wish Kholi wasn't injured, I'd like to see how he goes against this attack on this pitch when under pressure after a great first innings thus far from the Aussies.... Certainly one of the best batsmen in the world but this series he's not had any success so credit to our bowlers...

 

To me I'd like to see Australia beat them with their strongest team on the park so I hope Kholi bats thats forsure...

 

I get the feeling most of you blokes would enjoy the Aussies "kicking" their asses all the way to the gutter and winning by a squillion runs to shove it up their arses because well um i dont know.....

 

Might be a bit of tall poppy syndrome but its kinda got me beat....

 

I hope this test match goes down to the wire and the Aussies win it with some good cricket, just like the time Michael Clarke took 3 wickets in 5 balls in Sydney in about 2008 to win the series against India...

 

Each to their own i spose......

 Looking grim now, India declared for 603, our deficit 152 runs, they've got maybe 20 minutes to bowl at us for today.

They are going to get smoked and made to look B grade...

 

Punjara what an innings and what a cricketer, made his first triple century at 14!!

 

The only bloke in our team seemingly now that has any pure test match endevour and concentration while batting is Smith...

 

We are desperate for a couple of players ( Renshaw looks the best we've produced for a long long time ) that are willing to put the team first instead of their egos....

 

I hope they prove me wrong here but it is going to take a hell of an innings from Smith tomorrow to get us back in the lead and in a defendable position....

 

Fancy the no.8 making a 100 and Warner cant even see the session out WTF!!

Yeah, Warner is a complete liablity away from pitches that aren't like those in Australia. Saha has rescued India before so its not surprising him scoring those runs. I can see Renshaw just grinding out a hard fought half century and Smith usually steps up but it looks as if Jadeja will eat us alive tomorrow.

 I know they are a building side now the Australians but how many chances do you give some fellas...

 

Shaun Marsh??

Wade!! 

 

I know it pays to have some stability but Neville should be in on his current batting form....

 

When you loose Starc in the tail you surely have to try and bolster the middle order..........

 

Anyway i'd say Smith will be preying for a miracle....

If nothing else Starc being a left arm bowler leaves some nice footprints for Lyon to bowl into. Without Starc on the team Lyon struggles a bit.

Meanwhile Jadeja has all the rough foot marks from Hazelwood and Cummins to bowl at, so will probably be way more effective.

 Going to go close i think. Im happy with the team at the moment, think we have a good balance and are putting up a good fight in a tough country. The pitch was a road for 4 days and is only just going hairy now.

Starc is a big loss, but Cummins was impressive. I think we need the same team for a while to build the confidence for the ashes.

We are doing a lot better than when the saffas came and showed us how to play.

I don't get why the Australians bowled 210 overs but only gave Maxwell 4 overs.  What's the point in taking an all rounder if they're not going to use him.

 Good job by the Aussies to see that out. Shaun Marsh proves again why they select him with a second 50 of the series which, combined with Handscomb, saved our backsides. Considering our recent record in India (actually subcontinent in general!) we've done really well this series with a reasonably young team. We were hot favourites to go down 4 nil and now India have to win the last test to regain the trophy.
