    I would have been 100% sure of Indian victory had they played Jayant on this pitch. With Ashwin not firing and opposition having player like Steve Smith in their ranks, I think Australia still have an outside chance to save this one.

    The way Jaddu is bowling...maybe we don't need Ash at all.

    Also didn't watch this game but was Ash really that bad?

    Wasn't he getting drift which he wasn't in the first 2 tests?

    I only saw him bowl in the third session of day one.

    My worry for Ashwin is that he is not adjusting to the conditions quick enough. Pune and particularly Bangalore pitch have lots of cracks. That perfectly suits Lyon style of bowling who bowls a little flat and gives more over-spin. That allows to extract more variations from the cracks. Ashwin should have done the same but he didn't until the fourth innings of second test.

    This pitch was different. Ashwin was bowling the same way as he did in the last innings. He was getting little drift and turn that was manageable. Among all the spinners in this series, Jayant puts maximum flight and side-spin on the ball which complements well with a good pitch like this one. Moreover, Maxwell was vulnerable at the start of his innings. He was playing everything on the backfoot. Ashwin didn't bowl full enough at that time. Jadeja did and got few of outside edges, bat-pads and lbw shouts. Maxwell eventually settled down and started to play fuller bowls on front foot or by coming down the track.

    I didn't watch a single ball today so don't know if pitch has started to wear on but if it holds well for day 5, I don't see Ashwin being much effective tomorrow.

    Ok cool thanks.

    I too feel Ash hasn't been adjusting quickly enough these days.

    Not sure about your comments on Jayant and sidespin.

    Absolutely loving the series ! I love how the teams are playing with such passion that it actually makes viewers realize how important and significant test cricket is. Batting over 500 balls and scoring over 200 runs isn't easy and each ball becomes important - even neutral fans are taking interest on twitter. This is exactly what we need in test cricket.

    Back to the game, I'm kind of losing patient with Rahane , he is purely in the team as a batsman - he does not bowl and lately his fielding has been hit and miss. He needs to step up. Loving Umesh Yadav and Jadeja proving his worth . Smith and Kohli are perfect competitors to go against each other.

    He probably won't even have to come out to bat.

    Tons from Smith and Renshaw are very much confirmed for tomorrow.

    Seeing Jaddu land those rockets on the rough, should be fun watching the Aussies sweat tomorrow whatever the outcome is.

    The Indians have their tails up in this Match now, and the Australian Coach has put doubt in their batmen's mind about how to negotiate Jadeja. Also, don't write off Ashwin .... yet. I am sure he will try to keep up with Jadeja. So all in all it will be a real " street fight " in Ranchi today ..... may the Best Team wins.

    He is the main wicket today for sure, Smith knows it and you can see that he has put a big price on his wicket.

    Australia still can collapse at any time,these 2 should remain focused and stay at the crease as long as possible without thinking about scoring much,as it is almost impossible for Australia to pull of a victory here.

    Runs are very important.
    They need to go in the lead so if they are all out, India will have to chase some runs. So runs from Australia will also save time for them.

    May be unfit - he is in field so that he can bowl later. One lefti is batting, hence don't think any other reason not to bring him in 80 minutes.

    Yeah,I know runs are important but what i meant was to avoid risky shots and play sensibly as only 1 wicket could trigger a serious collapse.

    I am sure Ashwin would not have played this match if not for his efforts in that 4th innings! Don't know what's the problem (injury or form). He was never so ineffective in these conditions. India should have simply gone with additional spinner in place of Ishant for better support.

    80+ runs! Australia are not looking to attack neither they have players to do so (trying that they may lose wickets, and in the course if it means we have to score 50+ runs, we don't mind! We are not worried about innings victory, just a win is enough for all the intensity in this series and the way Australians have played) Indian win is 99.9% certain unless there is rain or bad-light (flood lights also don't work)

    Can't help but feel that Ishant's theatrics has brought India two wickets here. Psyched out Renshaw and perhaps Smith was still thinking about that dismissal when he decided to pad one against Jadeja. A minor lapse in concentration and that's good enough for the Aussie skipper to walk back. Ishant really did his best to get into the batsmen's minds there

    If he can perform like this overseas also he can end up with a very fine record.

    He did bowl a good over. Bouncer-Bouncer-Full Ball. Not sure about any theatrics.

    Unbelievable how from saving the match India are now the hot favs to win the match. Shows the characer of the team. Players who can perform in tough situations.
    I believe, a 70-80 1st innings run lead for Aus and they would have won the match.

    Runs flowing now and the lead is being cut down pretty fast.. 14 runs off Ashwin. There dont seem to be any demons in the pitch as well. Just 21 runs deficit now and with just 40 overs to a draw seem the most likely result now.

    its bad strategy by them not atleast trying to score 2-3 an over

    if they were doingthat they would have some lead by now

    they can get a jaffa anytime so a lead would buy them time

    Excellent batting by Aus but still 37 overs to go.
