Very impressed with the way Indian pacers have bowled in this game. Not surprised by Shami's brilliance but Yadav bowling consistently probing line and length with good pace is a sight for sore (Indian) eyes.

All our pacers have been good.

Especially Shami and Yadav.

Kohli effect is showing.

The real test of our pacers will come in terms of consistency and when we are under the pump.

So far so good.

My grouse with MSD is mainly with his team selection. He rarely ever tries the change the combo and at times persists with his preconceived strategies so stubbornly even if it isn't working. MSD is getting older and his batting is no more reliable and devastationg like it used to be. Plus, Virat need to blooded in as captain in all formats to make him learn all the tricks and trades of the game.

Ashwin not bowling well today.

Yesterday he was flighting and looping the ball and getting it to dip. Was unlucky yesterday.

Today he hasn't looped it so much and is a too full.

Bad bowling.

He needs to get his act right (its important for us going forward in this series).

As for the pitch, its gotten very easy to bat. Need to be patient.

And sometimes its better to have fielders in the deep if things aren't working perfectly.

Pacers could do well yesterday cos there was a bit of life in the middle of the pitch which allowed the balls to bounce and seam a bit.

I get the feeling the pitch is easing out.

In the tour games, pacers didn't do much.

So need a disciplined effort.

If that was out, then Dowrich dismissal of Ashwin was out too.

But then both of them weren't given by the third umpire.

Which surprised me cos 20 years back, those wouldn't have been given but these days, those dismissals are given.

My fear with Kohli is that he may not learn from his mistakes and go the other extreme of Dhoni.

1. Always sticks to the 5 bowler strategy even when the pitch has something for the bowlers. - like Bangalore against SA.

2. Relies too much on pace and doesn't give Bhuvi a chance in Swinging conditions.

This pitch he has been pretty good. I hope he keeps learning and improves

I feared the same but Kohli seems like a guy with good head on his shoulders. He quickly realized that Pujara is more important than flashy Sharma in the test team. He dumped Binny when he didn't perform. The dude always tries to improve. Also, he has Kumble to guide him when anything goes wrong. Nothing to worry..

As everyone has said, need to be patient.

Pacers need to be rotated well.

Spinners need to be given longer spells to hit stride.

Pitch is easing out imho.

So its not a simple job of just turning up and knocking wickets over unless WI batsmen too want to go home fast.

Ashwin is bowling brilliantly. Virat needs to understand that spinner needs a 7-8 over spell as opposed to a fast bowler having 4-5 overs. Yesterday Ashwin rarely bowled more than 5 overs in a spell. If he thinks Ashwin is an attacking bowler overseas, he needs to give him longer spells overseas.

Ashwin has bowled well in patches in this test.

He cannot be mentally fragile if he is to succeed outside the subcontinent.

1. He bowled a few bad balls and was a touch too full. Not bowled bad in patches. But the way he tossed up and got dip in first innings was brilliant. Something I hadn't seen an Indian spinner do for a long long time. Cricinfo commentary would reveal a bit on how he bowled last innings. He was very unlucky to not get atleast 2-3 wickets in first innings. Troubled both the highest scorers last innings.

2. Mental fragility is not the case. Ashwin is one of the strongest when it comes to being mentally strong. But when you keep bowling in Aussie pitches and have everyone from commies to fans to people around you, doubt you outside Asia...it will take a toll. It happens to all.

Look at him right now. Looks like picking a wicket every ball now. lol.

That too.

I didn't make that point but planned too.

I agree.

Spinners on a tough pitch can't breakthrough if you give them just 5 overs,.

But then pacers were more effective so its all cool. But if Virat uses Mishy or Ash, he needs to go for extended spells (not 5 over spells).

All the good spinners in the world start getting into zone the more they bowl.

Why the hell is Jason Holder the captain? He is not even good enough to be in the Test squad and neither is Carlos Brathwaite. Why are they playing ahead of genuine pacers like Kemar Roach, Miguel Cummins and Alzarri Joseph who are at least 15 kph quicker and could've seriously troubled the India batsmen? WI's Test batting is hopeless honestly. The FC averages of some of these batsmen are truly appalling. This Chandrika guy is opening the innings with a FC average of 25. Like seriously? The only way they can have a competitive batting line-up is by bringing back Gayle and Chanderpaul and giving the likes of Brathwaite, Bravo, Blackwood some more time to mature. Following the West Indies can be so frustrating at times.

Kohli should bowl these 2 spinners together till they either take all wickets or drop dead.

Whichever comes first.

The speed at which the overs get finished is helping both.

Almost another chance.

Every over there is an edge or chance or just missed. The tempo is perfect.

What does drift depend upon?

You mentioned drift just now. How does one get the ball to drift, is it breeze-related alone?
It is, to some extent. How you call a mirage, drift is also a bit of a mirage. How it leaves your hand and what kind of arc it makes and what kind of parabola it makes is what you think is drift. For a batsman sometimes, you feel it has gone into you, it’s gone late. Most of the time, you are not looking at drift that happens from the hand but drift that happens towards you when it reaches the batsman. When drift happens from the hand, it is more of an angle, it is more of a curvature. What happens is the batsman is looking for it, he is playing for it, he is letting it come in like an inswinger. But when you load the ball differently and put enough revs on it, it starts drifting when it is about to dip. That is when a batsman is committed to a shot and that is something that is not dependent entirely on the breeze. It is dependent on how much revs you put on and how well you loaded and uncocked your wrist. On certain occasions in Indian grounds, it is going to be a bit challenging because all the grounds are almost cocked and fit, so you will not get any assistance from the breeze like there was in Sri Lanka in the first two games. But I think you can get a little bit of curve in terms of shape on the ball when you are bowling to the batsman with your wrist.

Is drift in some way a spinner’s equivalent of swing?
Not necessarily. It’s the amount of revs that you put on the ball that makes the ball behave differently. With the SG ball now, I don’t know. Definitely from the time I started playing first-class cricket and now, the quality of SG balls have differed so much, I don’t know how it is going to be this series (against South Africa). Sometimes, the box of balls that is thrown at you is not great, so it is very imperative for the spinner that the ball is very good. Sometimes in the past, I have overlooked the quality of balls and gone on bowling because I thought it doesn’t really matter. But it does, it does to a certain extent. When you are playing against quality batsmen, you will encounter Hashim Amla, Faf (du Plessis) and AB (de Villiers) in this particular series, it is very important you get all the stocks right.

Anyway a good overseas victory for us. Particularly impressed with Ashwin's performance, feared his batting had started to impact his bowling. But this is the first time I'm seeing Ash get a 7fer away from Asia on a phatta. Maybe he was inspired by Yasir:usman
The west indies need to improve more, were dire in this match. Hope the Windies give better competition in the upcoming matches but India still win.

Brilliant team effort. As Kohli said a perfect test match if there could ever be one, albeit against a weak opposition.

Kohli continues to take giant strides as a captain. 7 wins out of first 8 tests as a full time captain is a fantastic achievement. Even as a stand in skipper in Australia, he had shown he truly follows his "playing for results" , continues to strictly follow that. Tougher challenges will obviously test his captaincy and philosophy but that can wait. For now, awesome to watch a young test team under Kohli gradually becoming stronger.

Also, going by words of Ashwin and Kohli, Kumble has taken no time in gelling with the team and looks to be a very hands on coach. Good signs for the future.
