Pitch is not exactly flat. It has quiet some turn and bounce. will be quiet unplayable
from 3 day onwards. If India makes 500 somehw in first innings Aussies are in trouble with BHajji and Mishra good turners of the ball. I predict an Indian victory.
Sachin u r d man Loved his aggressive play out today.
Century is deserving!

40th century. Well done, albeit it was a chancy knock.

@Harry - 500 is very very far off. I predict somewhere close to 400.

For completing his century, he has got life - 3 times. But anyways, he had done what others did not do today.

@ Eddy - 300 is already on the board and we still have some batting to go(considering tail has been wagging in past few tests) so we can consider 450-500 for the first innings and considering today is the first day the result seems eminent in this match (still stick with Indian victory prediction and will be a fitting end to Ganguly's last test and VVS 100th test,team owes them this much)
@snaronikar - who cares if he is dropped 3 or 30 times, end of day he has scored a century and thats what matters actually.

The second new ball does the trick for Aussies. Tendulkar gone for 109; India 303/5.

It is anybody's game right now. If Indian tail can wag and stretch this to 450, it'll be advantage India; if Aussies can restrict India to 350, it'll be advantage Australia. At 400, they'll be even stevens :-)

New ball is due and I don't think Sachin has it in him to score a big century here. So it will have to be Dhoni/Dada who will have to take us near 500, if possible. As for the tail, there is the law of averages.

Edit: Sachin out.

Tendulkar is out. Hope India will reach 400+ . The only recognised pair is playing. The ball is also playing some tricks now. I feel it will be difficult for the tail to wag t'mrow unless these 2 guys decide otherwise.

I hope the pitch is playing some tricks. Following the match from asking (again).

Edit: Phew !!! Reaching stumps without further losses. Tomorrow will be crucial.

I think not. India will win if they reach anywhere between 450~500 tomorrow.

I do. Been looking at his body language in the series, he might just do it.
