    Done well? They've maintained their pace but they haven't looked threatening at all and have given too many loose balls.

    aamir was already down to 128 kph yesterday. 4 matches of bowling to pujara and he'd be bowling slower than jadeja.

    Aus actually bowled pretty well. Pujara is simply too deflating when he bats for a long time. Pant and Jadeja are simply cashing on that.

    He's been more impressive than Kohli in 2014 and Kane in 2015. Think he's outscored both too.

    Regardless, that's one way to neuter their fast bowlers. Have a couple of batsmen who can grind them down and than cash in for the second half of the innings.

    Yeah, they're going to be livid after this series and Smith and Warner will be back.

    They'll have a point to prove and the teams first up are going to face their wrath with the rebuild back on once Smith and Warner are there to carry the batting.

    SCG is always like that. INdia made 700 plus in mid 2000s. Also back in 1992 Shastri made 206, Sachin mae 148. This is the only one pitch that helps Asians besides Adelaide to score some runs.

    203 run partnership. Somebody in the crowd needs to throw some sandpaper into the ground. They might get a wicket then.

    You are missing the importance of Agarwal. If the Indian team starts out 19/3 or 40/4, everything goes downhill from there. The reason we lost the series in SA and England was losing most of the tosses and the absence of good openers.

    The score of 622/7d that you see today was due to the foundation provided by Agarwal and Pujara.

    Doesn't matter how many matches Shaw has played, he will be one of the best openers India has had. Pant is good, but his success today was also due to the foundation he was provided by the batsmen who came before him.

    People underestimate the importance of a wicketkeeper. Pant doesn't have to be the wicketkeeper, if he is really a good bat he can play in the team as a batsman and Saha can be the keeper.

    He has dropped nearly every chance that wasn't a simple straight forward catch that you and me could take. He is a mediocre keeper who is going to have to improve leaps and bounds to be a decent one in India, especially against good teams.

    Its Khawaja, the odds are he makes 20 more runs. Already unsure and looking like offering more chances.

    As it is India has a very very long tail. Have you seen how DHoni was when he started his career? Saha is not worth investing. He is already 34. Highly regressive move. Just allow Pant to hone his skills .

    Would be a different game if it was 15/1. One doesn't have to "invest" in Saha, he is already the finished product.

    Yeah, sure Pant can score fast. Saha also scored a century in an IPL final.

    You can't make an investment in someone by tolerating dropped catches. Or have you forgotten "catches win matches". Two dropped catches mean the other team plays with 7 specialist batsmen rather than 5.

    You are basically making nonsense general statements. Have you seen *insert name* at start of their career they were very poor.

    Dhoni was a top keeper to spin even in his early days, it was pace bowling in SENA he struggled and even then it was an acceptable level, pant basically drops anything isn't very easy on difficulty level 9 out of 10 times.

    Shane Warner is suggesting that Australia should get 412 runs to avoid follow and then declare and see if Kohli would set them a target for second innings chase .. that’s the only way Aussies are winning this game

    No Dhoni didn't even go for many catches against pacers. He would conveniently avoid. Unless Khawaja makes 160 runs you have no real case here. He already holds the record fo r max number of catches by an Indian in a series. This is his first year as a keeper. 2 centuries in England/SA. He is only 22. Saha is a grandpa compared to him. Not even sure how good his form is now. He could suck so bad for all we know. How much of sample you have. He had his own mistakes.

    Pant scored 159 even if pant's replacement scored 0 we would end up with 463 and that is without declaring.

    Even with 400 on the board, if India got Australia out for 250 they would have a better chance of winning than they have now.

    No That partnership may not have happened. You can't just take his runs out and say we would have scored that much.

    Way way too risky on this flat wicket. They could even beat India .

    Warne gives some really weird suggestions from time to time. Last test match he was suggesting to make 6 changes in the Australian lineup.

    Coming back to this match, it's unlikely India will lose but Australia's best bet is to score 800+ runs in 200 overs and bowl 75 overs at India in the last day to force a result.

    Please show us where dhoni was dropping catches, dhoni's keeping has never been under scanner ever, please stop spouting nonsense, you like pant fair enough but no need to revise history to make a mediocre keeper look good, his record is because we have had the best bowling unit in our history not because pant can take regulation catches that 10 year olds could take.

    So you expect his replacement to score a golden duck and us to collapse from 322-5 to 400 allout with pujara still batting, that is allowed but me making a simple math calculation is absurd, you are making a fool out of yourself here mate.

    That is why he never went for catches.Especially in England. Many catches he left to slip when those catches were his lol. He was smart with that. No sorry you are over-rating an barely above average keeper like he is Rodney marsh next coming. Even Gilly has dropped a few. Many have done. Saha after a couple of series people got carried away with uber hype forgetting how he missed very simple stumpings.

    322/5 to 350 all out is more likely with saha than 400. Did you even check how much our tail contriibuted in this series and how Jadeja got bounced out twice in a row?

    Your reasoning is based on:

    1) Pant's replacement would have scored zero.
    2) The last 3 wickets at the point India declared would also have scored zero.
    3) The game can't end in a draw even though India has a larger run total.

    You need to think through this before making these sort of posts.

    This saha puranam is frankly annoying. Whoever created the hype for such an average player like saha needs to be appreciated. Somehow it caught on.

    No one is calling dhoni a great keeper against pace, that is another ** assumption on your part, my exact words were acceptable. Also every keeper drops a few but only pant seems to drop ever catch that isn't a dolly, last keeper who did that for us was parthiv, pant's keeping is a similar level which is mediocre.

    Your assumption is saha would have taken that catch and taken all the 21 catches that pant took.
