  • Followed last 10 overs or so on cricinfo

    what a performance from India 
  • India chase down 329 to win by 3 wickets. 
  • The recent years of Test cricket have put on some incredible shows but that's right up there with anything I've seen
  • There was a spell there of 22 runs off 8 and it may have got to 30ish off 12 it was mental 
  • would a draw have been better for England in the Test Championship? 
  • Well done India. 8 players out and stuffed them at their fortress 'Gabba'.

    Never heard a stadium referenced so often by players and commentators.
  • Great game, great series, and great to see to Aussies lose.

  • That series feels like India's 2005 Ashes equivalent

    It's better if we're honest - away, missing players etc.

    Although obviously not as strong an opponent as the 2005 team.
  • “Can’t wait to get you to the Gabba” famous last words from Paine I think. I don't think we'll see him at the ashes next winter.

    Said this myself, I was hoping he would still be wasting a slot in their side (Cant bat, cant keep, cant captain) and then we would end his career in the ashes. Shame he has done this now. I guess Wade will keep and they will bring in an extra batsman.
  • Love an Indian win over Australia. Takes me back to the VVS Laxman series in 2000. You really have to be in the country to understand how mental place goes when they beat the Aussies.
  • The good news, a patched up India side showed how to win at fortress Gabba and win a series in Australia

    The bad news, we now face 9 Tests against India before we get to Australia  :#

    fucking hate wade, think he's a very average bat and a bit too in your face attitude/hard man persona for his average batting skills. Thinking to some one like Matthew Hayden, who had a similar steely and feisty attitude, but you know, could also thwack a 90mph bowler with a new ball for 6 multiple times. 

    Who will captain though? It's always been thought paine was keeping it warm for smith for when enough time passes from the sandpaper incident, but maybe his shadow batting shenanigans have put paid to that?

    They like a specialist captain so maybe they will bring in Travis Head!!

    Agree about Wade hes a bit of a prick. I remember him having a right go at Root at the Oval in 2019 which was a bit weird.

  • Agree about Wade. He's a domestic bully who can't translate it to the International game. But he can translate his mouth!

    I think they'll stick with Paine for a while. They will gloss this over as India beating them in each department, to buy more time.

    Langer is a arrogant one too. When asked if they could have perhaps rotated the bowlers over the series, he responds naming each player to ask the journalist who he would rotate from and to.  :D

    langer is just defending his team, the aussie bowling attack is absolutely class though, the only part of the team that can hold a candle to the late 90s/early 00's team imo. Saved their bacon in the 19 ashes as well as labuschange.
  • The aussies are proving to be as good at defending a lead as Charlton are!
  • India were also in prime position in first test before they were bowled out for 36 in second innings !
  • LOL that’s brilliant 
  • I just watched the highlights.
    Those cheating bastards appeal very loudly for absolutely everything.
