    Not like Kohli has contributed anything with the bat this series.

    Kohli's loss is definitely huge , His banter and high energy would definitely be missed . Rahane isn't on par with Smith when leading the team.
    If I am not mistaken , Kohli is being replaced with Kuldeep , a bowler in for a batsman ? So 5 bowlers for India and 3 spinners ? This is mind boggling

    Australia win the toss which is huge.

    Kohli is out and they're playing 5 bowlers. No Iyer, surprisingly. Huge call to include the wristspinner.

    Looking tough for India, as long as Australia can negotiate the first session. Must not let Kuldeep settle at any point in the game.

    Should look to rack up the runs across the first two days.

    You call that bad luck?

    We haven't won a toss the entire series against SA

    Then there's our abysmal record at the toss for the last few years

    get a feeling that India are a batsman short 5 batsman when the whole series both teams have been struggling to score isn't smart.
    On a side note - Liked the Australian team visit to see Dalai Lama - must have been an amazing experience to meet his holiness.

    No Kohli, Australia win the toss on a pitch which is good for batting for the first two days and we are playing with only 5 batsmen

    Looks like we are already trailing even before the first ball has been bowled.

    On the positive side, We can finally see what Kuldeep Yadav has to offer. India's first chinaman

    Well I'm not comparing that to whichever team you support but tosses haven't certainly not gone India's way in this series for sure.

    Ashwin has bowled 700+ overs this season

    No wonder he hasn't looked anywhere as effective. Should have definitely been rested for Bangladesh.

    BK is bowling excellent length. Unless IND gets Aussies 3 down in 1st season, it can be a long day. I think, this wicket will be good batting track after 1st hour.

    Indian management seems to have went with three spinners simply to extend their batting options.

    Nair, Saha, Ashwin, Jadeja, Kuldeep, Bhuvi..They all can bat and it's to be seen how much all these guys can add in both the innings with the bat.

    The slip fielders stand with their legs wide open .... totally useless position. You can neither move left or right quickly nor you can jump .... so many catches are put down because the fielder was in no position to react quickly !!!

    Since then, his scores had been 26, 0 & 23. He was dropped immediately after triple. I don't think had Kohli been fit, he would ave played today.

    I remember we dropped Warner on 0 and he went on to make a big one. Getting the same vibes here.


    Pakistan is that kid who never studies for his exams but is surprised when he fails.

    Same.

    India in for a long phainta.

    Warner might just get a ton in a single session again.

    In baseball, there is a type of batter who steals bases. They are not big hitters, neither good placers, but they are extremely good maneuverer of the club, they use the club almost like a samurai - nudges, pushes, drops ... & they don't use conventional hitting techniques, rather bank on eye sight, hand speed, wrist, soft hands etc...

    Smith Smith reminds me of such batters in cricket version - from a ugly position, he plays amazing shots just on eye sight & bat movement.

    India have contributed 10 points to Smith's 60 average on all on their own.

    Shastri was telling that there'll be help in 1st hour for the pacers, but I think, late March Sun has taken everything out too quickly.

    Are you crazy. How's it bowling friendly already.Swing was only for few overs.After that it has magically disappeared. Good for batting now. Interesting to see what spinners get here.

    Yup good comparison. Know exactly what you are talking about.

    Look no further than our Toronto ka larka, Ezequiel Carrera.

    Isn't it swinging out there? Regardless, Umesh is no world class pacer, bob.

    A pretty standard statement for the start of any Test, and you are right about the sun. If there was some help, it wouldn't last too long. Knowing Dharamshala ground, runs will flow fast, specially when you have someone like Warner lasting this long.

    Good for India that they dropped the tail-ender that was batting at #4 for them.

    Yes, Pillar and also Upton. However when I think of someone squaring up for a bunt the first person that comes to my mind has to be Zeke.

    Anyhow I think you should focus on the game at hand right now. Would be a wise move to go back to bed, tbh.

    Pathetic bowling, pathetic fielding, pathetic captaincy. Smith and Warner have it so easy at the moment. India basically handing them both centuries on a plate.

    2:1 to Australia.

    I guess he is ahead of Rohit in pecking order as our 6th batsman for overseas matches.

    Rahane is lucky to be in the team let alone be the captain.

    Aus will score 400 today. BK is not doing anything and yet he is still bowling.
