    Don't think our bowlers can replicate Starc and Hazzlewood. Though they have bowled well in the 1st innings and also in the series against England, but it's always bowling "well", but never seen them taking a cluster of wickets.

    Look at the way the pitch is playing, if the Indian quicks bowl stump to stump it'll be really hard to score quickly.

    He played a loose drive the ball before his dismissal and tried driving the ball that bowled him. Yes, it kept low but everyone knew that this pitch was behaving in this manner and he should have tried to block anything straight.

    Poor shot selection.

    Ishant and will umesh are terrible. Watch them bowl shot and wide. I have no faith in Indian pacers when it comes to defending low totals.

    This pitch is taking skills out of equation. You have to pray that the he ball does not t hit the crack.

    It's tough for bottom half batsmen to survive against this pair on this wicket with new ball. IND picked 6 batsmen & just about few months back even our Mamoon was envied with the batting quality - I expected more from op 6 to be honest. Expectation from Ashwin with bat often is a bit misleading, because of those 4 hundreds against WI.

    Ishant Showing the people above him how to do it, dead bat the quicks and take on the spinners.

    Saha is doing the right thing too, waiting for half-volleys and full tosses and not playing any expansive shots to the decent length balls.

    Why do batting lineups these days absolutely struggle to take form from one day to the next.

    Pakistan have been specialists in it for years but Ive noticed now almost all teams suffer from this affliction.

    The team could be batting like a dream one day and making the pitch look like the flattest Faisalabad pitch you've ever seen. Then there is stumps and when play resumes next day the whole team is back in the shed in the first session.

    Ashwin is injured. He is struggling.

    Yadav has not won my trust just yet.

    Jaddu is the only real threat.

    This is going to be a close match. This pitch eases up during second half of the day. I don't understand why people think the Aussies will be shot out for a low score. I would say its 60-40 for Australia with this total.

    187 is not a great total to defend.

    Exactly.

    If anything Australia is more ahead than India.

    70-30 to Australia.

    If India defend this, they will maul Australia on the remaining matches.

    If Aus win this, they might whitewash India. Indian confidence will be shattered.

    Ashwin is as much allrounder as Virat Kohli a bowler. Scoring 4 hundreds against minnow west indies doesn't make anyone allrounder.

    It's a 4 day finish for sure - if Aussies are to chase this, they'll do it inside 60 overs.

    It's the biggest test for Kohli today - he has got a small total to defend on a difficult wicket with 2 of the most successful spinners ever on these wickets. Imran defended 221 against a far, far better batting lineup against spin, without 3rd Umpire, DRS & 3rd country Umpires.

    Pitch is offering no turn to spinners. Okeefe looked ordinary and Lyon was also ineffective.

    Pacers who can hit the cracks consistently will be rewarded.

    Who do you think will win?

    And only one of those 2 spinner is bowling well.

    Don't curse me, if I am proven wrong - but I think AUS will win it by 5 or 4 wickets. In 1st innings, they actually batted 123 overs, which indicates ineffectiveness of Indian spinners. Probably, they'll go after the bowlers now. Warner will go for a Sehwag like impact - quick fire 35 & target is 50 less in no time.

    Spinners are getting not much help from the pitch. Our pacers aren't as exploitative as theirs. If anything, Australia should have more chances of winning this, but given that this is a must win in order to win the series, I feel our bowlers will pull it off.

    Damn....you may very well be right.

    Need some magic to win this.

    Kohli will get traumatized for a few weeks at least if India loses, he would've never imagined losing a series at home to a team that got whitewashed by a transitioning Sri Lanka few months ago

    In between, our bowlers are improving their cast - fast bowlers have to over step for their reputation; so Subashis got Mendis for a 1st ball duck, that effort took his heel 3 inches further than where it should have been

    Let's see if we are really up for a fascinating 2 sessions of play..

    188 isn't too much.. A couple of 60s and it's game over. But few wickets up the order and we can make a collapse.

    Time to recall this game perhaps:

    Those who're saying this will be a cakewalk- even if that happens we can't take it for granted these days. There have been around two dozen batting collapse since 2015. No target is safe until it's reached.

    Aus should win here. Some one needs to just play 60-70 runs and game will be done.

    If we lose this we should just hand over the border gavaskar trophy to australia and request them to stop embarrassing us further.
