A place to discuss cricket, whether it be the golden duck you scored in 4th grade last weekend, or a discussion about international matches.

Despite the commanding position India is in, it is encouraging to see another major contest reach the 5th day of the match with a lot still to play for.

Hopefully the Australian bats will pull themselves together to play with the necessary patience and composure to drag out the day and save the match for the series to be decided in the last match...

India will need to bowl attacking and accurate to win this.

There isnt another test game after this. India have won the series. This game is just for pride now.

I honestly have no idea why I thought there was another match... Probably because the series between the big players often involve 5 Tests...

I never expected the day to be lost through rain! It is a pity, it would have been nice to see the under pressure Aussie bats put up a fight, but at the same time it also saves them from possible humiliation.

Rashid over Leach in the first Test :lol: utterly ridiculous decision, nearly as bad as when they picked Tredwell over Rashid in the last West Indies tour!

I am just absolutely shocked that golden boy Broad is not playing!

The fact that the Windies have gone with 4 frontline seamers and a batting allrounder with offspin tells you something, though the debutant Campbell seems to bowl very decent offbreaks as well.

I'm quite pleased about that. Curran's first spell has been pretty poor so far though.

I think England have done their usual of trying to pick a
long batting line up, yet seriously Rashid at 10 is just silly!

One front line bowler and four all-rounders is a bit over the top! Curran is no more than a 4th seamer at the moment and then not even picking your best spinner is a bit silly in my opinion!
