There goes Clarke. Indians on a roll. Sharma takes two. Tendulkar dropped Symonds in the previous over. Could have been 6 down. Its 61/5 at this stage. Awesome! Go India Go! (Hope, I am not too early to celebrate with the monkey still around!)

Well now the Monk and Gilly are at the crease and it turns out to be Gilchrists home ground!!
Well guess the media forgot Sharma in all the Hype over the inclusion of shawn tait.

That drop by T'dulkar (of Monk) may prove verrrry costly. You can't afford to drop chances off players like Symonds who can change complexion of a game in a session.

It doesn't look good to me, this partnership is already 26 runs worth & looking ominous. I wouldn't be surprised if they get to 225-250............I will be happy if this prediction didn't come true (as in lower score) though!

Well looks like these two are on fire. Sachin will be cribbing big time. Why do we always make mistakes. This is a third time in a row and umpires are not to be blamed this time around! We take quick wickets and then there is a partnership for the 6th or 7th wicket!

A quote from Cricinfo
"Australia are known for this attitude, and its always refreshing to see. These two are changing the complexion of the game. The last five overs yielded 50 runs."

Well guess we got to try out the spinners as it seems that they are used to pacers on this pitch

Current partnership 87 runs, 12.4 overs, RR: 6.86 (Gilchrist 34, Symonds 51)

Looks like Sachin dropped the test :-(

Edit: It is really frustrating to see how these two are toying with Indian bowling. Symonds may be a monkey, but he is a very talented monkey.
