It has been an interesting day. Only India can win now but my money's on the draw..

Amazing innings by both Pujara and Saha. They dug India out of trouble.

India will win this now, hard to imagine anything else with Jadeja looking totally lethal.

Anyone else panic when Smith shuffles across the crease. I am just waiting for a worm burner to get him lbw.

Not as much as when he leaves a ball that's hitting his stumps.

So the only question now is whether they will make it to tea.

I think that it is a safe bet. Almost wiped out the deficit to which effectively removes two overs plus whatever India need to overhaul the score from the required batting time.
It all might help.

Anyone else love how Renshaw and Handscomb look and play like old fashioned cricketers? Both of them look like guys from the 60s - its great.
Calling it now, Handscomb is the next captain.

Very well done by those two.
So apparently I am terrible at picking cricket matches and real estate.

It was a great effort.

For years it's been frustrating that the Aussie mentality in this situation seemed to be, "I must dominate", leading to poor shots and collapses.

In this innings for Handscomb in particular it was a case of keeping out the good balls, knowing that occasionally there will be a bad one to punish. A level of patience that we haven't seen in the Aussie team for a very long time.

As much as I hate him though I do respect him. He is only playing the game the way he grew up watching us play it.

Not long now. A very disappointing 2nd innings from Australia.

Not sure if they meant it but Australia have done so much prep and batting on 'Indian' type pitches recently throwing them a curve ball with something hard and bouncy seemed to really work!
