great application? he was nearly out second ball then he only had to face the quicks and the weaker spinners

his brother faced Ashwin his whole innings

Ok we agree to disagree on this point. The way Smithy struggled accentuated how hard it was out there. Just a handfull more for a 450 lead. Where did you get the hand across face icon from?

440 target in one and half day time given. It's never been done in test cricket earlier I guess but one man has capacity to get it given some support. Let's see. :popcorn:

Interesting stat. This 440 is the third steepest target set in India since..guess when..2004 when Australia last won there. We won both those games.

India in diabolical trouble now after Rahane throws it away. Missed Kohli dismissal. Was it a reckless shot as he looked in a hurry to impose himself. No notion to bunker down like Smithy did.

Yes Mick. Because SOK barely turns the ball he is getting just sufficient purchase from this dust bowl to beat the bat.

This debacle should cause a rethink of strategy by the India brains trust. We may just have a more conventional deck next match that is ok for batting the first three days and then tends to turn thereafter. Making it a fair contest between bat and ball.

You are pretty lady Misty. Like I said SOK does barely turn the ball.. so the purchase he is getting from this dusty track is making the ball move sufficiently to get the edge.

I honestly did not think India a powerhouse on their soil would fold like a pack of cards a second time in the match. But they did. A huge upset and what a moral booster for the Aussie boys for the remainder of the series. As I posted earlier I hope this brings about a rethink in strategy by India to create decks for a fairer contest between bat and ball.
