We think it’s still ‘well-poised’

Hopefully he's just pointing at something...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.

  1. however professional todays cricket have become they are still human…ever team has his comfort zones and its take time to fine tune according to prevailing conditions…you just cant sleepwalk on turfs…and start playing competitive cricket that too against champion teams like oz…

    having said that i think with bit of common sense we could have escaped scg (despite what happened there) and story could have been very different…with both team locking horns at adelaide at 1-1 (assuming no team deserve to win a match if they can not defend 400+)

    We’d like to see proper tours again. Longer tours of a less congested nature.

    Multiple warm-ups (of first-class status), further first-class matches between the Tests and ‘marquee’ matches against England A or the equivalent that might actually be of interest in a land where Tests are rare and precious things.

    We’d also like more daylight hours in winter, better eyesight and respect from our peers.

    It’s probably more likely than ‘respect from our peers’.

    Both are true of the solitary life of a king.
