    The run leaking part I agree with, but the karn comparison is **, Kuldeep is a proper test quality bowler not some sunday league hack, the england game was one off and can't fault him if you play 2 spinners on a green pitch.

    I gave that example because of wrist spinner thing.Wasn't comparing

    The England game,he was not even landing the ball consistently,no stock ball.He gets away with it in India,but needs to develop patience and discipline to bowl long frugal spells in testing conditions.

    He's very talented obviously but even in domestics he's not as effective as he's in ODIs.Historically chinaman haven't done well in Tests either.At this moment I just want him to be our ODI trump card going into the WC

    I would have preferred for us to bat the first session tomorrow and get the score to close to 550. Scoring now would have been easier than 3rd innings (day 4?) and pitch wear and tear/fatigue too would have made their batsmen more vulnerable. However I still think it will be a draw because of weather forecast in which case our declaration appears silly. With such a short gap between this test and SCG test the goal should have been to grind the Aussie quicks to dust thus reducing their efficiency in the final test.

    Why on earth have we declared? Bat once, bat big. Should have aimed for 500.

    The great Aussie tram used to get up to 430 and a 3.75 RR and declare. We can't do that!


    Have some Sehwag in your life.

    India say Virat Kohli's back problem isn't a serious concern and shouldn't hamper his participation in the remainder of the third Domain Test against Australia.

    Kohli received treatment on the field from India's Australian physio Patrick Farhart during his innings at the MCG on Thursday. He also took a tablet and appeared to be hampered in his movements, although he was able to continue batting.

    The skipper has a recent history of back issues, but teammate Cheteshwar Pujara was unconcerned when speaking after play.

    "I don't think it's serious," said Pujara, who was batting with Kohli at the time he received treatment.

    "The cause of the injury, I'm obviously not a physio so I can't say much about it. But I don't think it's serious.

    "We had a wonderful partnership today … so I'm really pleased with that."

    Kohli called for treatment during a sustained period of short-pitched bowling from Mitchell Starc that had the Indian skipper ducking and then taking on the left-armer.

    He played two crunching pull shots well forward of square to the boundary before he was dismissed in the same over, caught at third man as he pushed another short ball over the slips cordon.

    Kohli was forced off the field during the second Test against England earlier this year due to back soreness and also sat out a Twenty20 against South Africa in February for the same reason.

    The 30-year-old pulled out of a stint with English county side Surrey in June due to a neck problem and, given his immense workload as India's captain in all three forms of the game, has been rested at other times during the year.

    Kohli was uncharacteristically sedate during his innings of 82 from 204 balls on Thursday, the second-slowest of his 45 Test scores of 50 or more.

    Pujara, meanwhile, crept along at a strike rate of 33 during his innings of 106, leading former Australian captain Ricky Ponting to question whether India's tactics had left them enough time to win the match over the next three days.

    But having scored his second century of the series, Pujara said the nature of sluggish MCG surface made it difficult to push the game forward.

    "The conditions are really challenging and I had to work really hard to get a hundred," he said.

    "It took me almost four sessions to get a hundred.

    "It's a challenging pitch … scoring was really difficult.

    "To score 200 in a day is a tough task. And we saw today the pitch is starting to deteriorate and there's some variable bounce."

    Melbourne: Australian opener Aaron Finch Thursday said the MCG pitch is deteriorating quicker than anticipated and all three results are possible in the third Test despite a slow Indian first innings that finished at 443 for seven. The hosts were eight for no loss at stumps in response.

    “It’s not your traditional Australian wicket where you have three slips and a gully all day and you bang away, and the ball seams and carries like we saw in Perth. There, a lot of dismissals were behind the wicket,” Finch said.

    At the end of day’s play, he added, “On such pitches, I think you’ve just got to adapt your gameplan and regardless of what the wicket is, you’ve got to be good enough to adapt and change your plans and execute on the day.”

    Cheteshwar Pujara struck a classy century and combined with captain Virat Kohli (82) to put India in control on the second day. Finch said: “This wicket is probably deteriorating more than we thought it would. Even tonight it was skidding through, there were a couple that took off. So, it’s still game on if we bowl well and put India under pressure (in the second innings).

    “I think all three results are still on the table, 100 per cent, India (victory), Australia (victory) and a draw.”

    Finch praised the Australian attack for bowling nearly six sessions on the first two days, and in particular singled out Pat Cummins for praise, who picked up 3/72 in 34 overs before padding up to be night-watchman if the early wicket fell.

    ALSO READ: MCG pitch’s variable bounce will be tough for Australia: Cheteshwar Pujara

    “I think Patty Cummins was 34 overs for the innings and then to strap the pads on to be night-watchman is a pretty brave effort. I think the way that Pat keeps fronting up and coming back is a real testament to his fitness.

    “He probably didn’t get the rewards he deserved in the first two Tests, but you’ve heard every coach say it, you can bowl a lot worse and get a lot more wickets,” Finch said.

    Cummins took the wicket of centurion Pujara, after dismissing Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari on the first day.

    “I’m sure his rewards will come. There’s pace, there’s bounce, when there’s not a lot happening he seems to be the guy who can make something out of nothing. Touchwood that continues for a long time.

    “He’s a super player, talent with the bat, with the ball, in the field, although he dropped one today that’s beside the point. He’s just a super package as a cricketer and an even better bloke as well.”

    Australia toiled in the field for almost two days, bowling 169.4 overs to the Indian batsmen.

    Talking about the bowling unit as a whole, Finch said: “It was a long stint. I think having Mitch Marsh there was a real crucial part of that bowling attack, the way he controlled the run rate as well.

    “The amount of work the guys did bowling to plans it would’ve been easy particularly in that second session today to let the game really get away from us. Before you know it they’re 450-500 just after tea and it’s a tough way back into the game then.

    “The way they were grinding away and rolled up their sleeves and did the hard work was outstanding. Obviously, they’re tired, no doubt.”

    Finch said that he wasn’t surprised after India declared with 25 minutes remaining in the day. “After Kohli and Pujara fell, I think their plans changed a bit. They were 300-odd for five wickets down and I think we sniffed an opportunity. Their middle order played well, and it is still well and truly game on.

    “I wasn’t surprised at all especially with us having been in the field for two days. It was attraction of having us at two-down overnight and it is really positive, and I thought most teams in their position would have done the same thing,” he signed off.
