    First time watching star sports in hindi. Pre-match buildup made it seem more like a news channel than a sports channel.

    Lol, Warner really can't figure Asia out, can he? Poor in every format on pitches where the ball turns. Tells you something about the UAE pitches when you see that he got a century there last time around.

    Barring a couple of prolific players like root , kohli and smith most cricketers are one dimensional and can bat only on the pitches they've have been raised on.

    Root and Smith perhaps. Kohli has a catalog of failures outside of Asia so he certainly does not belong in that list.

    Kohli cannot play pace bowling on pace-friendly wickets. Smith and Root are better, all-round test batsmen. Amla, Younis and even AB are a level above, having played twice the number of games.

    109-3, at lunch. Smith is playing well and should look to score big.

    Pitch looks fine, but I saw one delivery scoot through Smith. So, dont know how long the pitch will stay good. Australia can use this period to score valuable runs.

    I remember Eng winning the toss and going on to score 477 in the first innings of the last Test. Let's hope this Test follows that one all the way.

    Yes looks like this is not hard pitch, let's hope the match goes to 5th day. If India can restrict Australia for low score in first innings, then they have chance to get result out of this match! Indian batsmen have gained confidence, I think they will bat well in this match with Australian bowling being dented without Starc.

    England is so unpredictable , sun out and its a batting paradise. Once cloudy it becomes hard for the batsmen , the pitches though have become better for batting in the recent years. In my opinion south africa remains the toughest place for the batsmen barring pitches like nagpur etc.

    Fair point, so I will reword what I have said.

    I am not now making an accusation.

    I photographed from the TV a picture of the bowler holding the ball. And the length of his fingernails was extraordinary, as was the fact that he was holding the ball with both hands, with three fingers bent and concealed behind the ball.

    People can draw whatever conclusions they wish to. It would be nice if the picture could remain in the public domain, however.

    What is the point of selecting Ishant Sharma on these Indian wickets? He neither contributes with the bat nor with the ball.

    Kuldeep would have added a lot of variety as well as another potent wicket taking option. Kuldeep is also a much better batsman than Ishant.

    Disappointed with Kohli and his team selection.

    Ishant is the best pace bowler in India, he reflects well on your resources; no talent, no heart; only good at throwing toys out the pram when the going gets tough and swearing like little children when they've been owned in their own backyard

    Australia have outplayed india in this series so far .
    Amazing to see in an era of home bullying .
    They clearly look the better side regardless of series result.

    Steven Smith is such an annoying player. Fidgety, sheepish but also a fierce competitor and in terrific form.

    Good to see Ashwin struggling on yet another traditional Indian track. This guy is a certified TTB.

    Ashwin needed rest. He has put in too many miles on those fingers.

    India deserve humiliation for selecting Ishant. With Ashwin struggling and Jaddu not able to get any turn on Day-1 pitch, Kuldeep would have made a lot of difference. But instead India chose Ishant as if he is an undroppable pacer.

    ^ Also, Smith has badly out played Kohli in this series. Its not even close after 2 Tests.

    Kohli needs to manup and score a big hundred.

    This series either looks like a draw or Aus will win. Unless Ashwin pulls out some new trick, India will find it hard to get 20 Aus wickets.

    I Just checked the 4-0 test series scorecard and the main reason India won those matches were because Pujara and Kohli scored 150s for fun, here Kohli is unable to score even 20s and that has been deciding the series, India winning the 2nd test was a huge upset as the wicket was not very bad in the 4th inning after showers in bangalore made the pitch a bit steady. India should easily score 600+ here but at current mindset it is difficult to expect anything above 250, this looks like a 500 odd pitch on day 1 and 2 and Aus will score 550 odd

    After these 2, there is not much batting to come. Wade and Tail will not score 200 runs.

    I say Aus will be all out for around 450.

    India will have to score 600 like they did against England to have a chance at a win.

    Who will he replace

    Marsh is clearly superior in these conditions

    Handscomb is showing more promise than Khwaja did in these conditions but if he fails second innings I think khwaja deserves a go

    I doubt Australia will go beyond 375 let alone 450

    Maxwell should get out quickly tomorrow and now there's no Starc to give bonus runs

    Australia will get out between 375 and 400. Jadeja and Ashwin will remove the tails in a blink since Starc is absent. India will need Kohli to fire if they want to score <500.
