    batting & the consequential r/r in this last session has been absurd & makes 1 wonder if there is a case for sacking Kohli as skipper .

    True, Vihari saw out the first 18.5 overs. Made it easier for the batsmen who followed.

    25 overs - 82 runs - 1 wicket , score 428/5 , 9 overs left in day .
    I would have gladly taken 18 overs - 80 runs - 4 wickets , dec at 428/8 & bowled 16 overs at tired Aussies .

    Last 10 overs 41 runs. So they have upped it.

    There is nothing in this pitch to suggest Indian bowlers are going to get anything Aussies didn't. This is a dead wicket and Indians for once are doing the smart thing, play until aussie legs fall off.

    Aussie batsmen have not shown any pedigree to be able to play long innings

    Only Khawaja seems capable of batting long periods

    So they will likely lose concentration

    Now that they've come this far, India needs to bat for as many overs they can and pile on misery on Australian bowlers and fielders. Their openers will be itching to go back to pavilion.

    But the tail knows how to play unlike ours, so it will kind of even out, if we had scored 600 by now sure declaring is smart, but declaring without at least getting 500 seems stupid here.

    Good call by India and now Australia with tons of work to do.

    India have declared on 443/7 after some excellent contributions from Rohit Sharma 63* and Rishab Pant 39; Australia are 1/0 in reply on Day 2 of the 3rd Test

    Why didn't Rohit bat at a better pace himself?It was a poor despite the score coz he didn't bat according to the situation
    he is being sarcastic.

    India should have got 500 plus before declaring.

    Where is Ashwin? Is he dropped?

    Aus should take 5 minutes to find a new helmet.

    I think Jadeja would be key bowler here . Also , India could have played Kuldeep , he being a wrist spinner would have been difficult proportion.

    Indians were worried about long tail.

    That's a myth that wrist spinners always do well on all surfaces.We learnt that with Karn Sharma on last tour.Even Kuldeep himself looked raw in England Test.Wrist spinners can leak runs too

    He needs to improve his control before playing on overseas tracks

    Aus lucky here. Bhumrah could have easily picked 2 wickets.

    Yeah, Bumrah has been immense for us.

    Couldn't see the ball too well, plus they are dead tired. I can see them getting AO around 370 4th day lunch or thereabouts

    That should ensure a draw.

    Fiery stuff from Bumrah. Much hyped Aussie pacers didn't look half as menacing on the track.

    India missed a trick here by not upping the scoring earlier. 20 overs could have gotten 2-3 wickets. Tomorrow Aus batsmen will be in much better shape after a night rest.

    Given the forecast for day 4 and 5, I am not sure this game will get a result. Would need to get Aussies all out tomorrow, to have any chance of a victory.

    Ridiculous stuff from kohli and Shastri. If u really wanted to declare then why didn't u instruct ur boys to play a bit more aggressively at the back end of the innings. 440 in nearly two days by losing only 7 wickets looks quite bizarre.

    Bumrah keeps things interesting

    I wonder whether he will have a long career with such incisive bowling or be the typical Indian pacer with a shelf life of ~2 years and then disappear into oblivion....

    Maybe they did and werenít able to put Aussies away effectively? You do realise that Aussies react accordingly as well and can bowl defensive lines

    Also.... they did almost double their scoring rate to 4.5

    The new ball did similar stuff for Aussies last evening nearly yielding kohli's wicket but for Paine's butter fingers.

    Aus did bowl defensively and field placing was defensive for pretty much entire day. It wasn't very easy to score fast, but India could have started hitting 10 overs earlier. I suspect they were afraid to get bowled out at 380-400 so they stretched it out a bit.

    Anyway, pitch is not easy to score fast. It's a horrible pitch and MCG should get a warning. Uneven bounce on first 10 overs and no bounce.
