    why does cricbuzz show this as u23 team while we have players like Jayant Yadav, Nitish Rana and Ankit Rajpoot playing
  3. left handers are actually threat in LOI's to left arm spinners. In case of Test matches with the rough formed by right arm seamers left armers can be very effective. In this case however with so much grass wonder what rough will get formed.

    Viv Richards: I'd pick Sachin over Lara

  5. If we are to win this series our middle order of Kohli-Rahane-Pujara has to do the heavy lifting and I am talking about multiple/big 100s Pujara some time back was playing fighting 50s but was never able to go beyond. But this year he has played a couple of knocks where it looked like he will barely reach 100 and he kicked up a higher gear and farmed the strike nicely with the tail to score big 100s.

    Take a bow Shami and Bumrah

    Shami, Ishant and Bumrah should just do batting practise for next 4 days. Give shoulders a rest. What was great was general discipline shown by the fast bowlers and executing plans. Except for Shami in First innings bowlers were at the batsmen all the time.

    Pujara, what a performance!

    Playing Brad Williams-Nathan Bracken-Andy Bichel-Stuart MacGill on track with 2 500+ scores is different than Playing Starc-Hazelwood-Cummins-Lyon on this pitch Opening bowling combo of Bracken-Williams have combiner 9 tests and 21 wickets. MacGill famously gave one full toss/loose ball an over. i am not trying to put down Dravid's knock but I want to give some perspective. We tend to praise past performances lot more than current ones. IMO this Pujara performance is one of the best in Australia

    Pujara, what a performance!

    Amazing performance. I think everyone here had accepted that he was on the decline and with his fitness issues his end seems near especially in the new setup with Shastri and Kohli preferring aggressive cricketers. He had a horrid county season but i think he is learning how to play in overseas conditions. The way he has come is simply amazing and I really wish he carries on for the rest of the series. He is just below 31 so he has good 3-4 years to give.Keep playing long form cricket and play county and just keep scoring.

    The real unsung hero of the team

    HE played well but that is expected of him with his experience and batting position

    Congratulations Bhai log for the win!!

    Yes this is a big win for us. This is still their best bowling attack in a long time. Lyon is at his absolute peak and Cummins and Hazlewood are very good. Only Starc was below par but with his speed and swing can blow away the tail atleast. Their batting is ok but this is their home ground and they showed good fighting spirit in the end. Plus their tail is much better than us.
  11. Even Ishant tried one yorker
  12. What I like about Bumrah is that he is a thinking bowler who learns and tries to improve. Came back very strongly today.
  13. Avesh Khan took a 7fer. Guy with good prospects. hope they notice him fast and graduate him to next levels
