Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

In hindsight, after the 36 all out debacle, the change in leadership, the change in personnel and injuries was good to team’s cause; as we did not have the mental scars of it. It will be difficult to say, whether we would have pulled this off, with the same leadership and it would have been tough to...

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

So as expected the old faces are back against England, Rahane has to hand back the captaincy, Shaw shown the door,Mayank surprisingly retained, Will Thakur, Washington get a nod over Hardik.
Vihari (due to injury), Nattu unlucky to miss out.

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

A mildly sobering thought is that a few of the heroes of this match may not play another Test for India when things are back to normal. Washington , Natarajan ,Thakur ,Mayank and maybe even Siraj, unless there are some injuries or if the selectors decide to take some hard decisions.

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

If there is player who has to binned permanently after the series it has to be Mayank. For someone who has played so much in cricket and 2 years of international , that was such an ordinary shot , needed just to rotate the strike. If caught behind , LBW of a good ball than it was fine , but such a h...

Whatever happens in this Test Match, Our team has pushed Aus to the corner.
10-0, 4-0 and 3-day finishes predictions by so-called cricket experts, should find a hole and or dig one for themselves.

What is this.. blatant double standards, when half of our front line bowlers are injured by their deliberate Bodyline , not a word by their home umpires. https://www.timesnownews.com/sports/cricket/article/ridiculous-double-standards-fans-furious-after-umpire-warns-shardul-thakur-for-bouncer-to-pat-...

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

Another series win for India in Australia now looks definitely on the cards. We need a good opening stand. Aus up by just 276 runs with 3 wickets standing, and four full sessions to play. Batting is not going to be easy at all , cracks have developed in the wicket and the Aussie bowlers are well ad...

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

Rohit out to a reckless shot as if he was playing an ODI.
At 34 hasn't still not learned to play Test Cricket, he is just not fit for it, just continue working on White Ball greatness

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

Their last 2 wickets added 54,and not only we have a huge problem with cleaning up the tail, the bigger issue is no contribution by them with the bat.Our batting tail average is even worse than Bangladesh.

Re: India in Australia, 2020-21

213/5 , if we get them out under 300 , around 275 , than get a 125/150 run lead we are in for a big reversal.

Excellent win by Ankita, and on the cusp of a historic MD. Go Ankita!!
