So does Warner. He has no clue when the ball goes off the seam. Bloody slog sweep he should have tried to whack him down the ground. Now he has put us under some pressure.

When you have so little to defend, Ashwin is being surprisingly profligate.
This hasn't been one of his better performances at home. By a distance.
Not recovered from injury, I'm guessing.

Reading through Indian dismissals today: loose drive, loose drive repeatedly

Congratulations Australia, looks like India want to call off last 2 Tests and go straight to IPL

Yes he is injured, I was banned from Indian forum, because I posted article of 'Ashwin done'
India have Mishra, Kuldeep.

Mishra is 101% fits, same as H.pandya,(ash took 50 wickets in 4th innings but now....) hey I think
I better stop

He knows he has 50% chance of being protected by "umpire's call". Smith should have reviewed that is looked to me missing off. Llong would have had to changed his decision. Oh dear.

Cowper was under rated in his time but our family never missed his single series, even on old time radio commentary.

What do you mean smith out ?
No I am in my kitchen, my wife changed channel its Mendis on 45* and Chandimal with him vs BD test

Bailey,
Shuts up

Misty Patel selected MM in IIHAG (draft)
Hope high because MS, Wade and MR Extra 22 first innings, so you know.....
Baggy and Kato, Raja ....good luck

Marsh out?
92/3
Chndimal out
NOT MARSH M

Terrific test match. That does not disguise the fact that the pitch is poor quality. I say that as those cracks have now opened and is making batting almost impossible.
