    "“I know he’s your captain but you can’t seriously like him as a bloke"

    Kohli owned twice by Paine.

    GOAT Aussie captain.

    Don't forget the collapse in the CT Final where Amir owned him twice in two balls.

    We need a psychiatrist to sort out our 4th innings woes. I am pretty sure we can't chase anything above 100 on a SENA wicket batting last.

    Whenever Kohli opens his mouth, he ends up looking like a fool.

    Kohli's a poet, when his mouth's shut.

    It's funny because it's probably true, I doubt many of his teammates like him outside cricket.

    He's too confrontational and serious, he come off like this in interviews.

    Did you watch Kohli's dismissal yesterday? What do you think, out or not out? How can umpires deal with such situations better in the future? Asking the last question because during such instances the decision making appears very inconsistent.

    Interesting how the word 'luck' isn't thrown around while talking about Australia's farcical series triumph in India, 2004. Not disputing what you said but just an interesting observation about public perception.

    Oh boy I loved it. Salute to Paine for calling it out. He echoed the sentiments of the entire cricketing world, including most of the Indians. I'm sure even Indians hate the guts of Kohli. He has a terrible 4th innings record and yet he dares to sledge others.

    I have a question for the knowledgeable PPers. What is Kohli's average in 4th innings in SENA? Match winning aside, does he have at least a single match saving knock? I can't remember even a single one of them!

    More importantly does he have any match winning/match saving 1st or 2nd innings hundreds in SENA countries? Or all he does his glory hundreds to only see his side ultimately lose?

    India have four batsmen averaging in the 20-40 range in their lineup and another who has been a tailender more often than not overseas. They need to fix this and get a solid top six so that it's not Kohli or nothing anymore.

    Shaw is a once-in-a-generation talent so maybe he can provide some support for his captain. More importantly, India need to win the toss and drop Yadav who is rubbish.

    When the captain himself can't face pressure and chickens out in any important chase, can you blame the other players?

    He doesn't have more than a couple of match-winning or saving hundreds in SENA but that does not matter unless his fans start making outrageous claims like "Kohli is better than Kallis/Amla/Younis/Dravid/Cook/Sangakkara".

    Yes, because the captain already scored a hundred runs in the match. He needs other players to support him.

    Scoring in first innings is relatively easy. Not much pressure, ball not doing much. Of course Kohli does well there. 2nd innings always ask the real questions to players and those who stand out will be counted as greats.

    Compete?? We are 1-0 up mate and yes most probably be 1-1 at the end of this , but to say that we have not competed with them is plain cringe worthy. The fact that all these comments are coming right after Kohli got out tells me all i need to know. Chasing this total on this pitch against the bowling of Starc, Cummins, Haz, Lyon is almost impossible for even GOAT batting lineups.

    Bat properly, rotate the strike, wear the bowlers down. Get closer to the target then you can be more expansive.

    Not really. These are a good group of bowlers but not greatest by any means. Teams have done well against better attacks in more trying circumstances.

    More importantly does he have any match winning/match saving 1st or 2nd innings hundreds in SENA countries? Or all he does his glory hundreds to only see his side ultimately lose?
    Oh my!!! Why so bitter mate ? I agree not having a player of his class ..( well not even a quarter of his class) in your team hurts you severely. But really ?? This bitter???

    On the basis of this test, we can safely say Vihari has done enough to keep Rohit out of India's test team.

    Ya' think?

    Rohit has a lifetime membership to making returns to the team as long as Shaoli are in charge.

    Nothing bitter. India needed Kohli the most today and he couldn't save them. Just asked some basic stats. Have nothing against him personally.

    Not really. Stop trolling. Kohli batted very well in Australia, as usual. The pitches suit him. His captaincy however, has been awful and he's easily the worst captain in the world currently, considering the resources at his disposal.

    Come on now I'm not trolling. He did bat well in the first innings but failed in the 2nd. Is that wrong?

    Vihari is the Indian Hafeez. A solid, useful player who will win his team games in Asia, provide great balance but also have some garbage moments.

    He's played 2 tests and he's not even a bowler. How do you know any of this?

    Maybe India should drop both openers, push Pujara to open with Shaw and have Vihari at #3. Not a bad idea looking at the ease with which he's playing..

Chasing this total on this pitch against the bowling of Starc, Cummins, Haz, Lyon is almost impossible for even GOAT batting lineups.
    The match was lost after conceding 300+ runs in the first innings on this pitch! The way to win this match was getting the opponent out below 150 runs in the first innings (that's what any ATG side which we can talk about would do in this match! Not necessarily they had to chase 250+ in the fourth innings to win! They would never put themselves into that position in the 1st place!

    The reason why India is in this position is majorly because of "Selection Issues!" This is what is happening right through SA, England and is continuing in this tour as well...!

    Honestly , if Australia were 97-4 chasing 287 against us, I'd be still be feeling jittery and nervous. But , look at the Aussies, they already know the result thanks to the mindless indian low order.

    That's just funny whether you like Kohli or not.
    If Anil Kumble was batting in place of Murali Vijay he would have agreed with Paine.

    Virat scored 141 in the 4th innings in Adelaide in 2014 chasing 364.

    Also has a match winning 105* in 4th innings chase in New Zealand.

    We still need one more new batsman in that scenario. Don't tell me it's Rohit.

    Match winning? LOL, they drew and he should have been out early in the innings. He nicked off but wasn't given (no drs back then).

    Btw this was on day 5 when the result was a given, had he been given we could have pushed for an unlikely victory.

    These two have retrieved the situation somewhat but everything goes to nought if a wicket is lost by the end of play.

    Losing to this Australian team is going to be a new low for India, with the resources they have it's embarrassing. This is possibly the worst Australian batting line up ever and they have a losing record in every format. Heck, I this is going to be their FIRST TEST WIN since Warner and Smith were banned.

    I knew we were going to lose at Perth as soon as I hear Shastri say after Adelaide 'To hell with the nets'

    Who speaks like that with still 3 tests to go?
