henriques is supposed to debut, honestly surprised he's made it to the national team based on his domestic results, despite not being poor they're not dominating either. he's been around the NSW team for a decade even though he's only now just 26. he is a solid pacer in FC cricket but we do have many more better pacers...his batting is just solid. i guess they want him to be a back up, back-up the bowling and back-up the batting, personally unless an allrounder is outstanding in at least one of batting or bowling i prefer keeping allrounders out of the test team.

India are doing a great job, Kohli is so good.
and although I didn't watch the game but what an innings from Dhoni.
Players like Dhoni should attack, play it like an ODI.
Last time against Eng India couldn't use their own home conditions but this time they are doing it.

But Indian team & fans shouldn't feel too relieved about it because in last series against Eng Ind started with a 9 wicket win & then lost the next two & tied the last one.
So still long way to go as far as the series is concerned.

Expected to see Australia to struggle more than England. Their spinners are not even close to the quality that England has. Swann and Panesar bowled intelligently and aggressively which is why they they came out on top. Lyon is decent but nothing really special. Doherty isn't really that good either but they should play him next match.

doherty isn't that good but lyon surprisingly is quite decent, at least in comparison of where he is in his career to the other spinners going around today. by that i mean compare ajmal, swann etcs first 60 wickets and you see lyon is pretty much on target with them, they've obviously continued on and/or improved on that but lyon is still really young and really new to not just international cricket but even state cricket. he had only a handful of state matches under his belt before being selected for the national team.

Ya Lyon has definitely been a good find. Without him, they would have a lot more trouble. I wonder how good Agar is. I also really liked the leggie Zampa. I watched him bowl and he looks like a good prospect. If they have another good spinner, Australia will also be a tough team in subcontinental conditions.

firstlane
February 25, 2013, 07:13 AM
Lack of quality spinners not just weakens Australia's bowling only, it also means the batters don't get to prepare themselves playing against quality spin.

I have never seen a test wicketkeeper fumble as many times as Wade did behind the wicket in this test match. Haddin is the second best batsman in the country against spin after Clarke and he is in red hot form. Haddin should have been in the team. I understand you have to look towards the future. But you also need to win the current matches otherwise your ranking keeps going down. Haddin is not that old either. He is 35. Hussey and Ponting were still expected to play until the next Ashes at 37 & 38. Hopefully Haddin goes to play Ashes. His experience and leadership quality is needed for such a young team.

Steve O'keefe is the highest wicket taking spinner in this year's Shield and he is a good enough batsman to be considered as an allrounder but the selectors went for Maxwell based on his limited over performance.

Aussies don't have good enough spinners and most of their batsmen can't play spin as well. Overall the team lack experience. Only 3 from the first test squad have played tests in India before.

Jadukor

Australia badly missing Hussey. I hate the Aussie selectors more than our own selector panel for they way they treated Hussey as well as Katich. Clarke alone cannot bail out the top and middle order in this series. Lyon has already been marginalized and Australia do not have the bowlers of Swan or Panesar's caliber to trouble the Indians. They will need magic spells of fast bowling from Pattinson and co to get back into the series now.

Congrats to India. They've bounced back very strongly for this series. One change they should really make is drop Sehwag. Look at what happened when they dropped Gambhir. Murali Vijay hit a big century. Time to give Dhawan or Rahane a chance in place of him.

As for the Aussies, when will they realize they need 2 specialist spinners? Get both Doherty and Lyon in. Have Clarke bat at #4. #5 is too low for the best batsman in the side. They should also drop Hughes who looks out of sorts and try Khawaja.

yes very disappointed but not surprised, we've gotten use to underwhelming performances over the last couple of years. batting wise i didn't expect much from anyone other than clarke who i though would do great and he's done that so far, and i thought warner and wade would be the next best. bowling wise they should stick with lyon imo, go with 2 spinners is probably what they should do.

Well as an Indian cricket fan, my expectations from this test team are very limited. With current set of talent that we have in this transition phase, I won't be surprised if they get beaten soundly in England, South Africa and Australia.

We need to maintain home record in this period. It's not as if we were used to win every test match in India in last few years as most of them used to be draw, So I won't be complaining if we unearth talent like Pujara and Ashwin who at least capable of winning matches in India and this should be our top priority at the moment, if we start to get beaten in India then our test team will going to be rated below West Indies and New Zealand.

Watson has been a very disappointing Test match batsman. Perhaps he should take a break from Tests and figure out why he has only 2 Test centuries. By now he should've been 1 of the best batsman in the team but it doesn't feel that way. It's understandable to see the likes of Warner, Hughes, and Maxwell struggling. They're big time talents but they're still young and learning. They still need a few more years before they start being more consistent.

By now he should've been 1 of the best batsman in the team but it doesn't feel that way. It's understandable to see the likes of Warner, Hughes, and Maxwell struggling. They're big time talents but they're still young and learning. They still need a few more years before they start being more consistent.

yeah watson should be one of the best test batsmen in the world right now but he hasn't developed the consistency at the highest level. it took awhile for him to adjust to ODIs. but there was a time where he was averaging about 48/49 in FC cricket, i know test matches have obviously affected that statistic but it's dropped down into the 43s, and that time when he was averaging so high was during a tougher more competitive domestic system (hadn't played much test cricket at that point though).

Naeem Islam jnr (spinner) would stroll into the Aussie team in this day and age. Aussie dont have spinners.
Bangladesh have a dozen spinners who can make it into the Aussie team. To be honest Doherty is an average spinner in Bangladeshi standards. Lyon has potential, but Australia is not making the best use of him

Came across this live blog where Cricket Australia representative responses to fans questions during the match period. Few interviews from the players are there as well. http://www.cricket.com.au/news-list/2013/3/14/live-blog-india-v-australia-third-test-day-1 Wish we had something like that.

pattinson was doing a good job but they decided to drop him, the others have no clue. siddle is a solid pacer but that's pretty much all he is, starc, well i rate him as one of the best LOI pacers in the world right now but as a test bowler he hasn't looked that good.

As of now it looks good in India but still we need to find replacement for SRT and spot left by Ganguly. Yuvraj, Raina have failed while Jadeja not looks like he belongs to test cricket with bat either.

I am not sure what to think of Australian and Indian teams. Are Australians too bad or the Indians too good? Australia just had a fighting series against no1 SA which could have gone their way as well. And Indians just lost to England on their soil.

I think it's a combination of the Aussies playing badly due to them being a very inexperienced side and also India simply being very good. England surprised India at their own game with Swann and Panesar who out bowled the Indian spinners. Australia unfortunately haven't found a decent spinner since Warne retired. They will continue to struggle on slow and turning pitches.

Run outs, while they should never happen in Test cricket...I don't count that as a real dismissal. Only dismissals from bowlers.

That's a very rice-curry thing. I've heard that many times among the Indo/Pak players. "I'm not out, if I get runout." Do you not get runs added to your name when you run B.T.W? Runout is just as much of a dismissal as any other.

And it was a major choke. He got bogged down to the pitch and took off for a panicing single.

If run out doesn't count as "really" getting out, than Alan Donald and SA should have complained to ICC about not qualifying for the 1999 World Cup final.

To be fair, Australia were in shambles with all the issues they had. But it was a good performance nonetheless.
