When India only reached 294 (and that only after a lower order rally) we felt they’d been too generous. Australia’s batsmen rarely fail twice in the same match.
But lo! At 65-2, India are picking up where they left off in the Aussies’ first innings. It’s all quite intriguing, although we’re struggling to cease wondering what might have been, had the first two matches of this tour been something other than Tests.
Test cricketers may be fast-adapting professionals, but they’re still aspiring to perfection. Give them every chance, we say.
We say lots of things though. We spend a lot of time alone. Sometimes we just make sounds.
