Will the tail once again torment India ?

Recommended Posts

We have seen it all before especially in foreign conditions. Indian bowlers manage to get into good positions and then allow the tail to wag and lose the advantage.

 

I believe if India get a lead of 75 runs, India will be in a great position in this test. But Starc, Cummins and the rest can make a huge difference with the bat.

Starc and Cummins are good batsmen and cant be termed as tail.

 

They both have good defensive technique and have good attacking shots too.

 

So, we need to curb our expectations.

 

The situation we were in yesterday and where we are now. A close 1st inngs is good expectation to have.

SA, Eng and Aus tailenders are decent batsmen and expecting them to fold cheaply in 5 overs like our tail is foolish.

Our bowlers and captain start trying everything to get them done in 20 minutes.

They have to do the same thing which they do to get the top order out. Keep bowling right lines and be patient. 

Can ask Bumrah to use his yorkers more often against tailenders.

Simple. Usually, just bowl tight line and length to tailenders and make them play a false shot by frustrating them.works 9 out of 10 times . This is what Starc and other good bowlers to the tail do, full straight and fast. Indian bowlers usually get carried away and try too much stuff to the tail.

 

cummins will usually be targeting tailenders head at the other end though  :p:

Ashwin has to pick up  Head or Starc. India played with only three bowlers yesterday.Shami has been useless.You need pace bowler who can rattle tailenders with pace or a leg spinner.We never had those thats why tail always wags against us.

A BIG YES !!!

 

The last 3 Australian wickets will now add an additional 109 runs !!

 

Australia lead by 50 !

 

India then fold for 175 all out ( Kohli 88, Rahul 0, Vijay 10, Pujara 2, Rahane 20, Rohit 22)

 

Australia 127 for 4.

 

Aussies Lead 1 - 0 !!

Just look at how that idiot Shami was bowling. Trying 6 different things in 6 balls and was giving away freebie boundaries every over.

 

We just can't get tailenders out. Seen it in SA, in Eng and all over again in Australia now.

Ashwin hasn’t gotten desperate yet. Wait for him to bowl 1 different ball every ball in a spell soon 

 

These Guys have no patience.

 

Only Bumrah and to some extent Ishant are consistent. Ishant doesn’t have theoace anymore to rattle the tail. Only hope is Bumrah

We need to take lead somehow whatever is that lead ,dn't  care.that's enough for motivation .

Trust me, if we can even get a lead of 5 runs, Aussies won't be able to chase down whatever be the target in the 4th innings. These guys are mental midgets. But only worry is that our batsmen are currently deer in front of headlights! Expect them to fail again and probably a rear guard effort will save it for us.

True. I expect the pitch to be flatter in the 3rd innings and then have help for the team bowling 4th but depends on how Ashwin bowls. Shami seems to be done and Ishant and Ash are unreliable. It depends on how much lead we get it let Aussies get though.
