Its all happening out there and we're busy in the office trading verbal blows with the Aussies here on email.

Cricinfo is on overload here at the office - takes ages to refresh!

Aussies really started with a attacking positive play. But now as any other team they too tumbling under pressure. Its really fun to have aussies at this spot and hope we don't allow any of their batsman to do the repair job.

It seems that Dhoni is doing some wonderful job there

Aussies are well past the repair point. With half the side back in the pavilion, they are doomed!

Nice to see Ozees in pressure. All this is happenign becvause their star batsmen and bowlers is not there either retired or did not get picked up.(McGrath/Warne/Gilchrist/Symonds). Good thing for India.

We should watch whether we will be able to wrap up this within today..

The Aussies will stem the rot for now and take it to the final day. But the end is inevitable.

Aussies putting up a good fight.

Memories of the 2005 Pakistan fight back at the same venue are haunting me. I hope we don't screw this up too.

C'mon - you dont really expect them to fold up without a fight, do you?

Why get nervous when a partnership develops? It happens with every team.

I doubt they can reach anywhere near 517, though.

Current partnership 83 runs, 29.3 overs, RR: 2.81 (Haddin 37, Clarke 38)

I don't expect them to reach 517, but they might play out the entire next day, and save this match :-(
