    Australia vs India | 1st Test | Adelaide | Dec 6-10, 2018 | Day 3 Thread

    So this is where we stand:

    Australia are 191/7 * (88 ov), trail by 59 runs with 3 wickets remaining in the innings

    Travid Head is 61* along with M Starc on 8*

    Head now holds the key to how close Australia will end up to India but can India remove him early on Day 3?

    Nope, usually when a team comes out to bat the next day, they get out quickly. I expect India to have a lead going into 2nd innings and posting a total of 300+. Australia will be bowled out for less than 150 in second innings.

    that's not going to happen sir...Australia are beasts at home, they cannot lose this game...they may bowl out India for less than 150 in the 2nd innings and chase down the target easily

    All out.

    It's raining hard, but this is our big chance IMO.

    Whenever we come out we need to score 350-400 minimum.

    The minimum is like 200. 350 would be ideal.

    Outstanding effort by Indian bowlers, our comeback after that horrid 1st session on day 1 has been brilliant. Now up to the batsmen to make amends. Conditions may be overcast but unlike English bowlers the Aussies are hit the deck hard types, so may not exploit the conditions that well.

    Ashwin has a great record against left handers. Bumrah and Ishanth have natural deliveries leaving the lefties. Shami apparently has an average of 22 against lefties this year. And...Australia have 4 lefties in top 6 and 6 in 11.

    Australian tail is not a joke. Cummins can seriously bat, Starc and Lyon can smash the ball around. The way Lyon was batting it looked like the Aussies were gonna take a lead of 40 to 50 atleast

    I doubt that Aus can chase 250+ here. It's turning from some spots and a bit uneven bounce.

    India just need to not gift wicket and they should win. Lyon can pick wickets quickly here. Vijay was more equipped to deal with Lyon and got out with poor shot. India still in a good position, but 2 quick wickets here will bring Aus back.

    Lyon needs to bowl in same area. Rahul needs to go quickly otherwise his quick scoring will take the game away.

    That is the best way he should be playing. He is not a player who should play defensive cricket.

    That's true. he should play his shots and I think if he stays for a while Aus will be too far behind in game. Rahul playing reverse is making it hard for Lyon to use that rough.

    Hosts will need a great spell from 1 of the pacers to come back which looks unlikely at the moment .

    Lyon needs to have patience here. Wickets will come.

    Still 210 runs to get to 300. That's not so easy here.

    3-4 wickets can come quickly from that spot.
