    What were Perth and Adelaide? Smith and Warner played both those Tests.

    One poor DRS decision cost us another drawn series.

    Huh.

    Do you even follow your own team's matches?

    This was the last trans-Tasman series.

    2 tests in NZ, 2 thrashings suffered by NZ.

    As for the series in Australia before, losing 2-0 in a 3 test series is getting hammered.

    Should be erased from the record books ideally.
    It was 385/7... and Aus were 2 down for nothing in the third innings before you know who and Voges scored 100s. In the end we finished stronger of the two teams (better placed).

    Who brought up a dodgy pitch?

    I've been following the Australian summer for years, that was the closest an Asia team got to a victory outside India in Perth (off Sehwag being brought back into the team and Irfan Pathan IIRC) and Pakistan in Sydney.

    Toss has been the major difference. I am not sure if Indians can win after losing toss. Everyone is talking about weak Aus here, but I think toss is important. Eng won against Ind by 4-1, but they got lucky with toss. I would have liked to see that series with Indians winning more tosses.

    I am still not convinced with that Indian batting order. We are making Vihari a scapegoat here by sending him to open. Rohit should come out and bat, not hide behind Kohli and Rahane.

    It hardly matters who bats where. 300 runs lead with 10 wickets in hand is too much.

    Then you haven't been followed the Australian summer close enough, because you seem to have forgotten about Adelaide 2014, when Kohli scaled down a 350+ 4th innings target nearly by himself.

    Australia does have plenty of mediocre players though. Their star bowler Starc is very overrated in tests, gets absolutely murdered when pitch is flat. Honestly Indian bowlers (especially Bumrah and Shami) are much more threatening than Starc, despite having less pace.

    I do agree toss is a big factor, but still losing to this awful Aus team is not acceptable imo.

    Jadeja to Khawaja. He was all over the place with reverse sweep just a ball before. Don't think he reads Jadeja well. Caught at short leg off an edge.

    Bumrah to S Marsh. Beauty. Last ball before lunch and he bowled his first malingaesque slower Yorker. In the entire series. Bamboozled the batsmen for an lbw

    Bumrah to Head. Head got into trouble with short balls all series and a nice full searing ball knocked out his stumps. 145 kph

    Jadeja to M March. Ball landed on the rough and straightened. Slip catch.

    The rest are straight forward. Fir once, the skills of the Indian bowlers we're matched by great tactics by Kohli. Commentary from Gilchrist, border was fascinating as they explained the setup and field placements better. Exciting

    The reason we have back to back test. Let us assume India bowls on the trot and they somehow make 350 odd and Australia bat at sydney. That is a lot of overs with not much break.

    What happened to Karun Nair? The triple centurion?

    Rohit is the Yuvraj Singh of this generation - constantly brought back into the test team in the hope that he'll be as good in the format as he is in ODIs.

    As evidenced by his brilliant record everywhere else?

    He has only scored runs against WI at home in situations where there has been zero pressure, like that Sachin retirement test.

    You have to bat the same order in next match and play same way. If you lose the toss then batting big first time will be extremely important.

    What a spell of fast bowling by Bumrah? Anyone citing absence of cheats in this series should not forget that Bumrah missed first 2 tests of England series, due to injury and not due to being a cheat.

    And we lost both the tests....

    Lol. How he wishes someone half as good as him putting on a baggy green. His pre series favourite, Khwaja seems to be in dire straits currently.

    Good idea not to enforce the follow-on, by the way. Probably best not to burn the bowlers when it's not the last game of a series which hasn't been won yet.

    How low has Australian Cricket fallen where they are going to lose in their backyard to a subcontinental team?

    The Australian side of 1999-2007 will be thoroughly embarrassed to see the depths their Cricket has fallen too. Won't be surprised to see Tim Paine gone after this series

    The same Australian team will be a world beater when playing against NZ or Pak- with or without cheater Smith or crazy Warner. Credit should be given to Indian ‘slow medium’ tundler bowlers like Bumrah, who
    May not be as good as Hassan or superstar Amir, but get wicket by boring the batsmen. Just like NZ played like world champion once it went to UAE after losing badly to India!

    There is a tendency to think that a team lost just because one special player, whoever is injured or out due to cheating or coach ‘scandalously’ did not select, is not in team.

    The gap between India's bowling attack and Pakistan has been exposed today.

    Pakistani bowlers could not dismiss Australia in a single innings and ended up with a total of 33 wickets in 3 tests. The over rated Mohd Amir went wicket less in 2 tests. The Indians have been way better than Pakistan in Australia on all fronts for a long while now

    Futile to discuss Pakistan here on a series that happened 2 years ago against a different Aussie side. Park that aside.

    Jadeja to Khawaja. He was all over the place with reverse sweep just a ball before. Don't think he reads Jadeja well. Caught at short leg off an edge.

    Bumrah to S Marsh. Beauty. Last ball before lunch and he bowled his first malingaesque slower Yorker. In the entire series. Bamboozled the batsmen for an lbw

    Bumrah to Head. Head got into trouble with short balls all series and a nice full searing ball knocked out his stumps. 145 kph

    Jadeja to M March. Ball landed on the rough and straightened. Slip catch.

    The rest are straight forward. Fir once, the skills of the Indian bowlers we're matched by great tactics by Kohli. Commentary from Gilchrist, border was fascinating as they explained the setup and field placements better. Exciting
    Thanks man.

    They still have similar fast bowlers. But they are not nurtured properly. Roach, Gabriel are still quick. They still produce lot of good bowlers. But they don't have a coaching unit to properly extract the best out of them. they are natural athletes. They just don't have a system to groom these talented players. Wayne Daniel, Winston Benjamin or Winstaon Davis for that matter were not as quick as some of the recent WI fast bowlers.

    That's fine but there is no point in batting 2.5 runs per over. You want to give as much time as possible to bowl Aus out. Rain is predicted.

    Pakistan's bowling was garbage in Aus. You don't have to compare that with any other unit to say that.

    The plan should be to play cautiously till 100 runs. (100-2 will be perfect). And then launch a blitzkrieg.

    Nah, Indian should score quickly 150 and declare. No point in taking lots of over to get to 100. Rain is predicted.

    Not sure why Pujara is batting here. Some one needs to make a quickfire 50.

    Indian batsmen losing the plot once more. Should have sent someone like Rohit ahead of Pujara.

    12 wickets have fallen today and this pitch is being called a Bunsen. Bet the usual suspects will now call this a treacherous pitch.

    Pujara's wicket was purely due to captaincy. That was an odd field placement. I wonder if he noticed that fielder.
