I watched all night (and slept in work hehe)...The Aussie played very well. While some of our batters failed to get runs, there were enough to carry us through, but the big improvement was the bowlers.
You could say the pitch favoured the Aussies, but India have a petty awesome attack as well, and have the best batsman (batsmen?) in the world right now. What the Aussies really need to do is consolidate, and burn the Indians hard in the next test, and not collapse in a heap as we did against the New Zealanders in the last series.
C'mon Aussies! We need to get back to number one by the next Ashes Series!
I think you may find England more of a challengeWell, look out England at the next Ashes!
This is the Australian team we know and love. Punter and Pup whipping through the runs, although Ricky came within a whisker of being run out on 99. Hopefully we can bat until lunch time today (it would be great to see Clarke get a 300) then have a day and a half to attack the Indian batsmen.
I think soYes, I suppose so, the good old days of flogging England in three innnings time and again are probably gone (for a short while anyway.)
Nice quote from Aggers on Twitter this morning "Some chirpy Aussies on Twitter this morning. (Punter and Huss getting runs sets their rebuild back a few more years)".Yes, I suppose so, the good old days of flogging England in three innnings time and again are probably gone (for a short while anyway.)
