GAME OVER ... so now I guess India can't win the series but we can still draw it . Hoping that the next 2 games provide us with some cheer .

Seems like the wicket fooled everyone from the commentators to the players to the experts and the curator too. The curator had said 280-300.

The curator was bang on! Total score 297 (149 Aussies and 148 India). Good show curator.

Default Crowd Trouble

Seems like the crowd went bezerk during the last couple of overs -

From cricinfo

22.2 Harbhajan Singh to Ponting, no run, fuller and flatter, middle and off, defended to cover again

This is pathetic - some champions from the stands have cluttered one section of the ground with dozens of plastic water bottles. Needless, and a shame. The cops are taking action, and some ball boys are trying to mop up the mess. This is all down at fine leg. Laathis being wielded as the cops try to stop the unruly section. A hold-up in play, so drinks for the players.

22.3 Harbhajan Singh to Ponting, no run, tossed up outside off stump, Ponting watchfully defends to cover

So much so for his understanding of the game.

Relax man, take it easy. Its just a game. You feel Sachin got a good delivery. I feel he should have played it safely. Thats it & the end. Lets talk more cricket.

don't think it was the pitch which did us in. ganguly needless runout... dravid played down the wrong line... bad shot by yuvraj. uthappa a little doubtful, dhoni caught down the leg side.. tendulkar got out to an excellent delivery.. no demons in the pitch....

The Australians are amazingly consistent. Even chasing a score of 148, they kept up a run rate of 5+ per over and managed the score in 25.5 overs.

At that rate, they would have made 300 in 50 overs. Guess the curator was right about the pitch.


EDIT: @csentil - you're right, it wasn't the pitch, it was the rain that did us in. Oh why didn't it rain ??!?

... Cricket is a strange game and one never knows what will happen so who knows , you just might see a 3-3 scoreline at Bombay and then we beat them in the T20 match and count that as a series win !!!

Nope. Curator was right about the team getting 300 and that was Australia

King Kallis is becoming quite a pain for Pak. Third century in four innings!!

Can Pakistan pull it off? They have time on their side. Better part of two days still to go and they are chasing 457. Chances of Pak win slim though.

Nooooooooo. If Pak try hard they can manage only a draw and cannot visualize of winning this test. Today is already 4th day. Don't know why Smith is not declaring the innings........

Sorry SA has already declared the innings and the target for Pak is 459........Only a couple of times in the histroy of test cricket the above total has been has been chased.
