    Moral victory. We come out better
    Kohli is a deadshit. Hope it gets a pair next test.

    Astute analysis, apart from being completely wrong.

    I asked for us to try and bat out a draw, and to avoid the usual shit we serve up after losing a few wickets. I didn't believe we could actually do it, but we did. Awesome patience from Marsh and Handscomb. They single-handedly saved the series for us. Credit to the boys, they worked their arses off, especially after the disaster to finish the second test. Only fitting that they win the final test and take the series, they deserve it.

    The team got a lot of confidence after the win in the first test - that will only grow after today's performance. What a fillip for the morale in the camp - if they aren't up for the 4th test, they never will be.

    I mean I could be wrong but the difference between Clarke's captaincy and Smith's shows here. It feels like with Clarke, we would hit as many runs as possible and get out quickly but it just seems different.

    If they produced a highway, they can easily shred it to bits.

    We should have stayed out there and let Handscomb try and slog his way to a ton.

    This test has been a rollercoaster.

    End of day 1 - Aus happy.
    End of day 2 - Ind relatively happier taking 150/6 and 1 down at stumps.
    End of day 3 - Aus ahead/happy
    End of day 4 - India happy
    End of day 5 - Australia happy

    Could say it was a dead pitch but pretty absorbing cricket and both sides had the opportunity to press home their advantage at various points.

    Pressure all on India now - all we need is a draw in the final test to retain the B-G Trophy.

    Hoping Smith rams this home due during his press conference and ups the ante and comments that the momentum has now swung our way

    I will have a sense of loss when this series finishes.

    Will force me to follow the horror of what will be our footy season

    I also gave us virtually no chance. Great effort from Marsh and Handscombe

    and denied him a 10for the match too.

    according to cricinfo: Jadeja this Test: Bowling: 5/124 & 4/54 Batting: 54* - Missed becoming the first Indian to take 2 five-fors and score a 50+ in a Test.
