    There is some chance, but very hard to score 375 in 4th inning.

    LOL. They would be lucky if they could even last three sessions on this pitch let alone winning this. Pray for some rain or Australia to win the toss in Sydney. This match is done and dusted!

    A flashy but ultimately pointless spell of bowling from the Aussies, if anything this is just moving the game along quickly so India will have more time to win. 300+ is a massive 4th innings lead and there are still 5 wickets in hand.

    It's just this irresponsible batting which has gotten on my nerves. I know we are in a real strong position right now but some of the shots played by these batsmen makes one want to punch them hard.

    people were complaining about india's slow scoring yesterday, today again, It could rain, but it might not too, if it were easy to score, both teams wouldn't be scoring at just above 2 and over in their innings.

    Their approach was right in the first innings. But when you are planning to declare, it's common sense to up the runrate.

    Rain may not come or become a factor, but as a team you need to always give yourself the best chance. There is no point in playing 50 overs for 100 runs. That's counter productive when you have 300 runs lead. By batting time, you are only giving some chance to opposition to get a draw if rain comes.

    Tactically, Indians have been poor this year.

    He hurt his back. Right about the time Tendulkar picked his back injury. I remember he developed this stiffness at the worst time of his career. INdia was 17 runs away 4 wickets in hand against Pakistan in tests. He had serious back injury and threw his wicket away at 136. Back injuries will take a while to recover. IN some cases you might need surgery.

    Reckon this could potentially wear down the Ozzie quicks? Rather allow Travis Head and Aaron Finch to throw some pies and allow India to do their bit (score 50-100 more and declare)?

    I would have been a bit worried had India not played Jaddu and played Ashwin. Jaddu can contain them and also attackthem

    India getting bowled out cheaply will take out any possibility of draw. Likely outcome will be Indian win here.

    I am one of those who rarely comments on this thread but I have to vent my frustration somewhere.

    After playing such a tactically brilliant game so far when we scored such valuable 443 runs with some great patient batting and then followed it up by getting the Aussies out for 151 to get a huge lead of 292, why would you not enforce the follow-on ?

    The reasons being given are quite vacuous and unconvincing. The Indian bowlers couldn't possibly be more tired than the Aussie bowlers could they ? Yet the Aussie bowlers got 5 of our wickets.

    Did we intend to mentally & physically tire out the Aussie bowlers for the next match ? How will that ensure that you will have an upper hand in that match ? And for that you would let go an opportunity to win this match by an innings ? What kind of a strategy is that ? Shouldn't you first try and ensure that you win the match as emphatically as you can when you have such a golden opportunity ?

    When you are 2-1 up with the last match being won by more than an innings, why would you care whether the opposition bowlers are tired or not ?

    I find this whole approach rather confused and timid. It is a mindset that is the reason why we win so few matches outside. We want to play safe. Did the great Aussie team of Waugh and Ponting win so many matches by playing safe ?

    It is good that they lost 5 wickets so cheaply. Kohli and Shastri richly deserve this for not enforcing the follow-on.

    If there had been a follow on, the Aussies would not have scored more than a 100 and would have likely lost 3 or more wickets. Would that not have been better than what we have right now ?

    He's very inconsistent.

    When in flow, he will play a wow knock and then go missing in other innings.

    He played a crazy good knock in 4th innings to chase down a target in SA during an A tour.

    easy for bean bag and potato chips fans to say that, but never a good idea to enforce a follow on. Kohli for once did a right thing by giving his bowlers some rest.

    Same goes for KL Rahul. Now that he has been exposed and dropped from the team, he should go back to domestics, perform better than everyone to earn a recall. In the meantime, he can keep counting money with his accountant.

    I support captain special need's decision to bat again. Why would you tire out the bowlers unnecessarily? India already has more than enough runs to win. Bowlers will rest up for 4 inning and come hard at Aussies.

    Terrible batting from some of the Aussie lads. The way they got out, giving away catches was like fielding practice at one time.

    Good late bowling by Bumrah, although some of those deliveries were full tosses and not yorkers as some indians put them lol As I said in the other thread, India 400+ was always going to be tough.

    India will win this comfortably. Even if India are all out for 100 it doesn’t matter . They are far too comfortable unless rain saves the aussies . Well played team India

    Before lunch tomorrow, India would be all out for about 120 with a lead of 412 - More than enough to defend the total.
    Aussies may collapse again for less than 150 or so in the 4th innings. This already looks like a 5th day pitch.

    Just when I started to like this Indian team they have ruined all of their reputation yet again and showed the whole world why they don't deserve to be the no 1 team.

    Wining against this Australian C side whose players r going through a psychological trauma isn't that difficult to be honest. This is club level batting from the Indians on a pretty decent pitch. Unexpected form the so called no 1 team. Who knows, they might even he bowled out before scoring 100 tomorrow. If that happens it will be a shame for the whole cricket world.

    Sadly for you, even this 'psychologically shaken Australian C side' will not invite you to play a test in Australia. So all you can do is to at least enjoy others playing in Australia till the time you get invited.

    As for shame, what can be a bigger shame than being a 'powerhouse' but not winning a home series vs Zim.

    Good late bowling by Bumrah, although some of those deliveries were full tosses and not yorkers as some indians put them lol As I said in the other thread, India 400+ was always going to be tough.
    If you watch the full highlights, you'll know why they played such shots. Almost every ball looked like taking a wicket. What was being called a placid pitch came alive in Aus innings.

    I watched part of the game live and it was certainly good bowling but there is no reason to get out the wya those so called test batsmen did. If its an ODI I can understand but in a test match, with all the time in the world, balls going down legside and so on...nope. Bad batting.

    I hope this aggression is limited to online forums snd you behave differently in real life.

    Punch them because they play shots under pressure which you don't like? Are you for real?

    Shame is defined as a nation that is not good enough even at its national game. Your national game in Kabaddi and you suck even in that. The fact that your team suck in cricket is known to everyone.

    Yes, Aus can defend 100 overs if they simply dead bat. Last inning they were playing shots and you can't play many shots here.

    Rain can save Aus here. Series may be decided by who wins the toss in next test.

    Exactly. That's the point my friend. Even though 2-1, 4-1, 2-0, 1-0 have happend in last 2/3 years whenever India stepped outside, they still get invited beaucse of the large number of Indians who r interested to watch their team getting manhandled by the others on TV. Its not like others r interested to watch that. Don't believe me? Look at the no of Australian spectators on the stand.

    Here is some more information for your amazement:
    Indian national game-Field Hockey
    India won 8 olympics gold medals in Hockey and one World cup title.

    Bangladesh national game-Kabaddi
    Bangladesh has won no world titles in their national game.

    India have already won this series. There is no stopping now.

    Only mentally weak people will think India are not the first Asian team to have won a test series in Australia.

    I am sure the Indian team is now going to ask the ICC to take away the the test mace from them because some random nagin dance guy doesn't like them.

    I think the positioning of that leg slip fielder was genius. Got to hand that to Aussie think tank.

    Passing showers expected in Melbourne but should still give us 4 sessions across two days. Take the light roller, Bat a bit, get to 375 or get all out. Should be enough.

    Nah, if Rain can save this test then Aus will be in much better mental shape in the next test. Also, even after loss here, toss will again play a big role in the last test. If Aus wins the toss then I will say series is not a done deal.

    How many teams have you seen enforcing follow-on in the last few years? India didn't even enforce against much weaker Lankans last year and here is a detailed article explaining why nobody does that anymore :
    http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/...ot-follow-days

    Regarding bowler fatigue, pretty sure Indian team management have the real-time data from the wearable devices and know how tired they are at the moment.

    And regarding next test in Sydney, why would you not want the opposition bowlers exhausted to win the series by 3-1 rather than tie it by 2-2.

    But why are you singling him out? You have to just look into the history. Didn't Mushfiqur Rahim put out a tweet rejoicing West Indies victory over India after he himself couldn't score 2 runs in 3 balls. So if their test captain can hide behind other teams, you simply cant single out fans.

    You need to understand certain countries work in a certain way. Few only cares about their own house and strive to become best (winners). Others take solace from rich neighbours seldom miseries (losers).

    Today's last couple of hours saw some of the most comical batting one will see at that level. Were our boys high or something?
