    everyone thought India could win in South Africa.. Lost 1-2.

    everyone, and someone thought India will humiliate England, lost 1-4

    Some people thought (yea a lot of people smartened up) thought India will smash Australia...and now it's 1-1

    Ideally you should have -

    Rohit, Pant
    Ashwin, Shami, Sharma, Bumrah

    I think Rohit on any given day is better than your other batsmen

    Even if we draw the series it would be majorly disappointing. This is our best bowling line up ever and Australia's worst batting line up atleast in the last 3 decades. If we can't win the series it will be a huge shame!

    Now imagine if Kohli had said the same to Paine, this same sledge would have been be called cringe worthy, obnoxious, lack of respect blah blah. Right now its Saint Paine sledging, so all good.

    Not that I am complaining. Need this banter all through the test, makes for a great viewing.

    Not many drawn tests these days as batters donít know how to occupy the crease. Neither of these batting lines looks like it will last long. But you have one excellent batter to their none. Back your bowlers to take 20 wickets.

    I'd be over the moon if we get to within 30 off the target. That would require some effort! Pant looks a walking wicket and our tail is well the worst. Vihari though looks solid but not much he can do alone.

    Yeah, sledging/banter is only acceptable and even termed as funny or hilarious when done by the fair skinned.

    I liked Kohli's sledging but getting physical I didn't like it man. Kohli's sledging was clever 'I am the best in the world and you're a temporary captain'

    Kohli should stick to sledging Smith as both are equal. Paine is like a nobody infront of King Kohli

    By the way this doesnt even sound like a sledge , I am sure even the batsman would be unfazed by the unsharpness of the sledge.

    Kholi is unusual in a sense that I have not seen many great players sledging average players. Usually when the likes of warne etc sledged they made the other players insecure or inferior where Kholi pretty much gave Tim pain a compliment by comparing him with himself.

    Shastri showed his side of the mickey with this selection.

    When home team is playing 3 fast bowlers and 1 spinner, why would you try to be oversmart and go with 4 pacers. Especially when you have pretty decent spinners.

    It's a pity that Indian opening pair don't contribute in any innings. They needed good contributions from top 3 to win this. Now no chance, the series will be 1-1. In next test India should play both Ashwin and Jadeja with 3 pacers. Rahul should be dropped.

    Paine didn't curse, his sledging has been very cheeky. I was anti Paine beginning of the series but he seems like a likable fella. When Kohli charged towards him, he simply moved away and later on Kohli complaints to the umpire

    To be honest Kholi has not done much wrong in terms of sledding I am just surprised by his choice of player to sledge. Tim Pain is not really a big player compare to himself or even that important for Australia he was never likely to average say more than 30 over a series.

    This test match is lost for India.

    Although in cricket its not over till last ball, a miracle possibility like Pant-Vihari scoring 175 runs on this track is 0.01% possible and 99.99% not possible.

    However team changes now seem inevitable.

    In my opinion, Kohli should now gamble and play Pandya instead of Vijay and Bhuvi should replace KL Rahul.
    Even if Hardik and Bhuvi open ( a shot in the dark /wild experiment), they will most likely have a better opening stand than what KL & Vijay seem tcapable of managing based on their current form. Atleast both will contribute something with the ball if not as openers. .
    Kuldeep Yadav instead Umesh Yadav, because even if Kuldeep fails he will leak less runs than Umesh for sure. But atleast there is higher posibbility Kuldip might pick bunch of wickets if Aussie flounder against legspin.

    No team is likely to chase 280-290 against this Aus attack on current surface in 4th inning. India has two young batsmen with extremely poor tail to follow. They may not add even 50 runs here.

    Only good thing Indians can do is to bat for a long time. Set a target to bat 40-50 overs or something like that. Keeping Aus out as long as possible will help Indian in the next test. Likelihood of doing that is very slim because Indian tails simply can't block for many overs.

    Australia likely to win, on an uneven and imo bad wicket. I am not making any excuses but Perth used to be an iconic place to watch cricketing contests. I know the pitch had slowed from the late 90s onwards but it was still lively for much of the last decade.

    Now, in a new stadium, with this drop in rubbish, we have a pitch that at times rises sharply and at others barely gets up. Poor, poor, poor.

    Yes, we need to frustrate them and retain some momentum going into the next test instead of folding like a flat tyre.

    It's what Australia did in Adelaide, getting within 50 or so runs of our total.

    Pant is simply not going to last that long. If the bowlers don't get him he'll do something silly himself. He is yet to mature as a batsman. I don't expect this match to last beyond an hour tomorrow.

    I'll bet Kohli and co. will stay too stubborn to realize their continuing selection mistakes and do more of the same. As a reactionary captain, he'll add a spinner this time though.

    If he were half as smart with captaincy IQ as he is with his bat, India would be in a much much better position.

    He scored a giant ton during that impossible run chase at The Oval, did he not?

    He should attack and see where he gets to.

    Now, in a new stadium, with this drop in rubbish, we have a pitch that at times rises sharply and at others barely gets up. Poor, poor, poor.
    It's been a great match, with wicket that has started to go a bit up & down on Day 4. Good wicket.
