Lol.
One good shot & They go hyperdrive with superlative praises on how worthy they are. Next ball they get out due to that strong obnoxious jinx.
Happens with BCCI commentators too.

He hasnt had a sore back the whole series!

For someone that got hyped as a specialist I wanted more then 151 runs at 18.


you forget he played one match saving innings where runs were of no objective

Warner hasnt played any important innings here

Ashwin's form has been as good as Lyon's
Lyon had a shocker in the third test and second half of the second test
Ashwin has been more consistent all the way through

Not sure just 20 runs off 110 balls is the way to go. Throwing the bat to get as many as possible is better than blocking and waiting for an edge.

The least likely Maxwell scored one.
The Indians neutralised our superior pace bowlers with flat, grassless decks. In other words typical Indian tracks.That was a telling tactic in my view.

thats been the problem all series. batting not good enough.

Indians have been stronger mentally too, they've won the big moments. Whenever there's been verbals they've come out on top more often than the other way around.

Jadeja's innings here was pivotal.

Seven and below has been next to useless in this series. Our slow bowlers should both be able to handle a bat. Neither are reliable. Both are clueless against quality spin. How often in the past has the tail scored valuable team runs.

9 down with a lead of 99. India just dropped an easy slip catch to take the 10th wicket, but everyone drops dollies in their career.

It will come, Wade looks clueless on this spitting pitch so imagine how the tail enders are going to fare...

Short, wide and dispatched. That's a bit better, and against Indian pacers he'd be okay. Get the spinner on, it was just hitting him in the pads as he played and missed about five balls in a row.

Shame the baggy greens had to save their lamest batting for their last innings of the series. They have been far from disgraced. Many predicted a 4-0 win to the home side. But this Aussie side led inspirationally by the hard as steel Steve Smith would not lie down. :hatsoff: Until now.
