Great effort from India though. Do they have 11 fit players for Brisbane?
Bad in a different way. No DRS issues, just blatantly poor keeping. Shelling Pant twice probably cost Aus the test. I much prefer his style of 'banter' compared to the Clarke/Warner rubbish that preceded it, but it came off as just petty & petulant today, India won that mind game.

They should, but they might only have the two quicks fit to play. Yadav and Agarwal might be two changes, if they want to move Gill down the order. Theres the untried quick Natarajan too.

I did rather think that Smith was batting for a draw in Australia's second innings ... He showed a serious lack of intent ...

They still had 130 overs to bowl India out, or a day and a half. Should've been enough

He did accelerate and finish with a strike rate of almost 50 too. Ironically, the Australian batsman finally turn up and our bowling can't get the job done

Really great fight from India today, which is not something you associate with them - this is the first time in 40 years they’ve played so many overs in the fourth innings of a Test match. Pretty ordinary stuff from Australia though - they should be rampaging through an injury ravaged India on home soil.

Nonetheless, India will lose the series at Australia’s Brisbane fortress, marking a full set of defeats in their last series in England, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia - so no different to the 90s. The great shame is that unlike the 90s, they now have the talent to be competitive, but lack the leadership and management to be successful.

Brilliant fight from India. It is great to see the team togetherness and them all fighting for each other. They seem to not have one ego to be pandered to who thinks he is better than everyone else. I am trying to pin down what is different from the first test but I am really struggling....could it be that some teams are stronger without, on paper, the best batsman?

To be fair to Paine, he's owned up to his mistakes and taken the blame. Days like that can happen to keepers, even very good ones (which he generally is). I don't think you can really class whatever Clarke/Warner did as banter. Sounds like he just got a bit frustrated as the day wore on (his own mistakes exaggerating it no doubt) when the bad language started to appear.

Given the Aussie record at the Gabba, hard to see anything but a home win unless the weather intervenes.

I have just seen this by Steve smith. It appears he still believes in doing what he has to to win.

Sets it up nicely for the final test.

As for this match - 3 wickets on the final day for a draw suggests the pitch wasn't all that.

While I agree with your sentiment about the Gabba test, I think we can just sit back and savour the draw. Our guys did a great job sticking around today.

We will be without Vihari and Jadeja for Gabba. I might be tempted to go with Kuldeep Yadav for Jadeja and include Saha as a keeper while playing Pant as a batsman. Our bowling will still be under-strength, but it might be the best possible one.

Lol, how are Indian fans still so pessimistic? Their side has been written off in both the last two test yet have come out with positive results. All the pressure will be on Australia. Both Pucovski & Warner are having injury issues. Who knows, if Aus go into Brisbane with Wade/Harris as an opening combo India may even fancy their chances for a outright victory? Chin up, it will be a very competitive test either way I reckon.

Lacks the elegance and musicality of Shahid Afridi too.

Nice to hear this on commentary on digital radio in the UK. Particularly refreshing are the news bulletins during the rain breaks ... Not only is the UK not presented as the centre, raison d'etre, and rightful ruler of the universe, but it is not even mentioned ... there was an item about the EU ...
Was it Ian Chapple? He was the only commentator I heard that used to be a batsman and from the old Channel 9 team but I'd be surprised if he was someone to complain about old-fashioned Test match batting. The others were Stuart Clark, Trent Copeland (who?) and a female commentator.

I thought that female commentator was the best of the bunch. Trent Copeland is no relation of Stewart, the brilliant drummer of The Police.

Alison Mitchell? She's the best ball by ball caller in the game at the moment I think. And it was Slater the one droning on about Pujara i'm pretty sure. Chappell is only doing commentary for ABC grand stand but those sorts of things don't phase him too much.

We are now without Bumrah as well for Gabba. Not much of a chance with the rookie pace attack of ours.

Sri Lanka were similarly afflicted, I wonder if this a consequence of the pandemic and the lack of international cricket.

I'm hearing that there will be a late call on Bumrah's fitness?

I think the lack of first-class cricket has been a pretty big issue. Very few players have the miles in their legs. This probably effects touring sides more than the home team. T-20 cricket and net-sessions cannot replicate the rigour on the body over 4/5 day match intensity.
