    Australia batting is fragile and India has a good bowling unit. India can break through even on a flat pitch if they hold on their catches

    Aus needs to put their heads down and bat time here. First 2 wickets were due to playing shots.

    They need to bat like Indians batted.

    That is genuinely one of the best pieces of bowling ever, spin, swing, seam everything requires some element of help from conditions but that was pure skill and control, if he staves off any injury issues,he will one of world's best bowlers in years to come.

    That was a result of absolutely amazing set up that preceded that ball. You think bowling a slow ball will get a wicket in tests without some kind of set up?

    Surprised you agree with the poor troll there.

    Marsh was set up beautifully and actually played quite well up to that point.


    Anyways, as I was saying the first 2 days, this is not a road. Kohli stuttered throughout his innings which should tell a lot about the unevenness of the pitch.

    Pujara immediately realized the uneven nature of the bounce and prepared to take blows. His fingers got pounded time and again never attempted a pull shot even against knee height slow medium short ball from Marsh.

    Despite good bowling, I don't think Aus should have been 4 down here. Pitch doesn't have any demons , it was simply perfect execution from Indian bowlers which got 3 wickets. 1 wickets was due to rough and Jadeja. Aus is trying to play too many shots for my liking.

    First of all go learn the definition of a troll. Second, there was nothing wrong with what I or Buffet said. Although, IND have bowled well, Aus batting has been pathetic throughout the series. This current bunch of Aus even got blank 5-0 in Eng even though it was ODI. When was the last time you see Aus getting dominated by Eng especially in ODI? They also got destroyed in UAE even though NZ won there. Without their front line batsman they are quite weak.

    The people who were describing the pitch as a road and Indian batting as disgraceful are today describing Australian batting as worst ever. There is a reason why test matches are played over five days and are considered the most difficult format of the game. It is not only the most difficult to play, but the most difficult to understand too for some fans.

    Not too difficult to understand actually: Win toss, bat first, put runs on board, choke opposition on 4th innings pitch, win games.

    lol talking about ODIs now, great.

    They went to UAE and got a draw in the format we are talking about. And beat England 4-0 in their last series at home.

    Mitch Marsh average 116 and Shaun Marsh averaged 74 in that series.

    Agreed.

    The same guys were talking about how Australia would score 400 over 5 sessions yesterday.

    Somehow the batting has gone from being capable of scoring 400 to incompetent overnight.

    I never said that? I've said multiple times this is the weakest Australian batting line up I've seen in my life.

    It's not surprising to see them in this situation, they don't have any class batsmen to handle to pressure and do the scoring. They would rely on Smith and Warner to do it while the rest played support roles to them.

    It's the equivalent of taking Kohli and Pujara out of a team and expecting Rohit, Rahane and Rahul to score runs for them.

    Can Aus cross 150? Steven Smith alone would've scored more runs than this entire Aus batting lineup full of Marsh brothers and where Khawaja is their best batsman.

    It's not surprising to see them in this situation, they don't have any class batsmen to handle to pressure and do the scoring. They would rely on Smith and Warner to do it while the rest played support roles to them.

    It's the equivalent of taking Kohli and Pujara out of a team and expecting Rohit, Rahane and Rahul to score runs for them.
    They have had plenty of time to remedy the vacuum created by them and this team is playing at home. What you said would warrant merit if those two were pushed out right before this series started...

    The point is, none of you couple of fellas who keep coming back to indiavaus threads give credit to indian batsman or bowlers and keep insisting on how bad the aussie batsmen are. Yes, they would be a better unit with Warner and Smith in, but at the end of the day, these are internationally selected players selected on merit.

    Outright dismissing the whole batting unit only serves to undermine India’s bowling attack which has been exceptional. I know that is the purpose of your posts by the way.

    @gazza619 "Will be a thrilling game. India will want some runs from the openers. Australia will be red hot to win this one. Not sure if Jadeja will give any Australian batsmen sleepless nights."

    My reply was "Jadeja has a long record of performing better than expected..."

    Jadeja's relentless accuracy and scoreboard pressure makes him difficult to play in these situations. Also his long spells give time for the pacers to recover.

    Jadeja is a top 5 bowler for a reason. He also outperform Ashwin in England if I recall. Problem with Jadeja is that he is in the IND squad as an all rounder though and not as a specialist bowler like Ashwin.

    Where has anyone questioned India's batting? They've played extremely well, it's just that they're up against a pathetic Australian team. Australia's bowling is still strong, but their batting is by far the worst I've ever seen. Most would agree, many Aussies who have watched since the 80s say the same thing. Them crumbling like this is further proof of it.

    I think Indian bowling unit is the best in the world. They have delivered it in three different conditions in this year alone. I am fairly surprised to see their improvement. Kohli's support is the difference here.

    What he says is correct. If you take out Kholi and Pujara you are left with Rahuls and Sharmas. If you take out Azhar Ali and Asad Shariq from Pak you are left with your Hafizs and Sarfarzs.

    It will take Ind at least another decade to replace someone like Kholi. This however does not take anything away from IND.

    Go to any Australian space, all they're talking about how mediocre this batting line up is.

    What is more important in Test Cricket, batting or bowling? I used to think that stronger bowling was preferred, but after seeing Aus bat I am not so sure.

    Definitely bowling, it's just that this Australian batting line up is not international standard.

    I read half of the players in the team don't even have good First class records.

    I think we have missed a golden opportunity to whitewash Aussies here. If only not for that terrible selection blunder in the second test.

    Bowling. Here Indians are bowling really well otherwise Aus may have scored big with previous Indians bowling units despite being weaker in batting.

    Bumrah is the world's best fast bowler right now along with Rabada.

    Never thought I'd see the day when Australia's batting talent will be at par with Pakistan's. Something's gone wrong in Australian domestic circuit.

    Clearly you have different definitions for a "road", "lifeless pitch", "curator should be fired" than I do.

    The likes of Rohit kill teams on actual roads. Someone obviously hasn't paid attention to Rohit's career. As will the likes of Mayank, Shaw, Rahul.

    0/10 as far as your attempt here goes.

    Pakistan are better, they have Azhar, Fakhar and Babar. This team has nothing.
