    Interesting scores coming in for this first test.
    Who would have thought opening the bowling with O'Keefe.

    WhyTF is Smarsh in the team and not Usman Khawaja??
    Yeah I get it a bit but look at their scores for the last year.
    Time Smarsh was retired from the test team.

    Because Marsh is better suited to the Indian pitch Rolling Laugh

    What a great days play.

    Hopefully Smith can make a 100 hundred tomorrow and push the lead over 400

    And the curator said it was going to be pace friendly. 40 wickets in 3 days and without looking back 35+ taken with spin.

    I can barely believe that result. So satisfying for a number of reasons:

    - Huge underdogs, expected to be thrashed
    - Big turning pitch
    - Kohli failing
    - Smith hitting a ton
    - O'keefe with an out of the box performance, sticking it right up Shane Warne
    - Beating India at home by 330 runs with the Marsh bros and Wade Very Happy

    Yep.

    Good chance India goes defensive from here and rolls out a road next test. Marsh was a horses for courses selection (albeit a stupid one), so Usman should come in if that's the case.

    I find this series really tough to watch. I cant stand the OZ cricket team but increasingly the Indian's rub me the wrong way too!

    The Ozzies start doing badly and I find myself cheering but then questioning why the fuck am I cheering for India and then visa versa. As much as I dislike the OZ team though I'm kinda rooting for them given the way the the BCC have dicked cricket around in recent years

    Trouble is, I just cant see the OZ team competing given the battle of the spinners... You simply have to win the toss for test 3 otherwise its a forgone conclusion one would think!

    Early reports suggested there was grass on Ranchi pitch for 3rd Test starting Thurs. And here it is

    Smith and Maxwell putting together a possible series defining century partnership.
    Smith 94, Maxie 53.

    As much as it kills me to say it but man Steve Smith is good!

    Huge toss to win too. I reckon that could be the series defining moment to be honest.

    On the other hand Faf has called correctly in each of the 8 games he has played on tour in NZ. By my calculations there is a 4 out of 1000 chance of that happening! Crazy!

    5000 runs @ 60, who saw that coming 5 years ago ? he just keeps getting better, this series has shown he is just so good under the pressures of test cricket

    if we can add another 150 today, we are looking good. pitch didn't play as bad as the other 2 early tho but certainly not a pitch you want to be chasing on during days 4 and 5

      Current date/time is Wed Sep 20, 2017 7:02 pm
