    Comment


      A mighty match under way in Pune (where Spike Milligan grew up)

      Australia won the toss yesterday, batted and made 256 for 9 by the close on what was accepted to be a spinners' wicket.

      They lasted five balls this morning, adding four runs. EDIT Starc and Hazlewood put on 55 for the last wicket with Hazlewood facing 31 balls before ending up on 1 no.

      India set off in reply and were cruising along at 94 for 3 when the wheels fell off and they ended up on 105 all out.
      EDIT O'Keeffe took six wickets in 24 balls.

      Australia are 134 for 4, 289 ahead with Smith playing a Captain's innings on 59 no.

      An indication of what the wicket is like can be seen by Shaun Marsh, the opener, lasting 6 overs and facing 22 balls before being out with out scoring.

          Far too big a chase on that pitch. Oz will see it out comfortably I'd say.
          "It’s not the team you support, it’s the club you should support. The team on the pitch will ebb and flow because that’s the nature of sport. No team has ever been successful decade on decade. The club has the history and that’s the passion you should have."

            You never know. If Australia were all out for, say 200 at lunch tomorrow, India would have eight sessions, 240 overs or so, in which to score 350 or so. That's 1.5 runs per over. They'd just have to survive the two and a half days to win.

              Spin is back in a big way! Amazing how pace and spin bowling vary so dramatically between northern and southern hemispheres. South Africa being the anomaly I suppose.

                Australia batted 'till after Lunch today reaching 285 with Smith seventh out for 109.That left India 441 to win.

                They were all out for 107, losing their last five wickets for eight.

                O'Keeffe got another six, for 35 this time.

                Australia won by 333 runs in less than three days.

                EDIT Smith scored more in his second innings (109) than India did in either innings (105 and 107)

                      India reached 213 for 4 at the close to lead by 126. They put on 91 without loss in the last session.

                      Tomorrow will be interesting.

                        India were all out for 274 this morning, setting Australia 188 to win.

                        They weren't doing too bad, reaching 101 for 4, but have lost four wickets for 10 runs in the last 10 overs to be 78 runs short with two wickets left.

                        Make that 5 wickets for 10 runs in 10 overs to be 78 short with one wicket left. the two remaining batsmen are Lyon, the Number 10 and Hazlewood the number 11.

                        Won't be long now.

                        It's all over. India, having been bowled out for 189 in their first innings have won by 75 runs.

                          Very topsy turvy test match. It highlights how rudderless and impotent England's bowling was in India.

                            Ireland batsmen folded badly v Tans in the ODI. 126 all out after only 33 overs.

                              Battered in the end. England only took 20 overs to reach their target.
