The Aussies have made the bold move of opening with Travis ahead and it’s worked a treat. He’s 39 not out at a run a ball at stumps Australia off to a ‘Baz-Ball’ type start in their second dig.

I reckon the pitch is playing better now so the game continues to change and evolve in an intriguing nature. Test cricket at its finest.

Aussies have certainly fought back here in this 2nd test, a target of 250+ will be very tricky for india batting 4th.

Let’s see how today played our Sam, but I certainly feel like batting got easier as the day went on

Yeah Ozzies need 250 minimum...ideally closer to 300.

Kohli hasn't scored a Test century in over 3 years now I think. Shocking!

The Indians never sweep unless it’s a slog sweep, I don’t know why teams go to Asia and try to sweep everything.

Smith, he rarely ever sweeps just got out to a wild swipe across the line. So so dumb ffs

Here’s the collapse I feared, all triggered by Smith’s stupid sweep.

Renshaw & Handscomb are really average cricketers, Cricket Australia must be concerned that they’re the best we have available. As someone on the forum once said “same old useless failures”

Game over now and that’s the series over

Handscomb is decent.

They just can't play spin. I'm ok with sweeping but then you need to be good at it. As an Indian obviously this is a great watch, as a cricket fan if becomes a dull and boring series. 4 games appears such a drag atm.

One man who can teach the Aussies about Sweeping and playing spin in India is Andy Flower. Haven't seen anyone play indian spinners as well as he did back in the day.
