Hmm something just doesn’t look right from that footage. Looks like a left handed batsman at the crease, perhaps Warner or Wade? That seems to be front the first innings, and Siraj is likely in a different part of the ground at fine leg.

Yesterday the batsmen were Paine and Green at the time. So I think some wires are getting crossed.

No issue with the “Darryylllll” style teasing from the crowd, however the racial abuse from tiny sections here and there have been a long term problem. Whether the right person/people were identified, or the correct evidence/footage found, is a whole different story unfortunately.

I do feel for the blokes evicted, if it was just one of their idiot mates doing it and then as a result all of them have been evicted and footage of them all broadcast across the TV and newspapers.
Same standards of law should apply here, members of the team have made allegations and indicated individuals believed to be responsible. The governing body and police have exonerated those men. So either point out other individuals it could be or make a statement stating you were racially vilified but unable to identify by whom (which people would understand I feel).

But if found to be corroborated then banned from all sporting stadiums in Aus for life.

One or two wickets this session and I think they'll crumble in the last. Jadeja will likely bat at 11 with a busted thumb don't forget

Like Rohit he couldn't help himself going for one too many. What was Pant's injury that stopped him fielding?

Hazelwood's wicket the big one. Don't think they could afford to lose the two in batsmen this session with the amount of gremlins in the pitch

Lets not forget their number 10 bats like a very bad number 11. And they've got 1 man injured. So 3 gimmie wickets after this next one.

How's Vihari got no runner with a torn hammy, yet Pant could not keep but could bat with his elbow?

Pretty sure runners are no longer allowed?

Still confused how Pant is not able to field but can bat at number 5 but assume it’s okay with the current laws

That’s the key thing here, even with “only” 5 down now at tea. Those last 3-4 wickets for India really can tumble very quickly, so often is the case in this series as well.

The wicket of Pujara is enormous, that could be the game.

India making a mockery of the Ch7 plebs (slats and co) saying we should have declared earlier. India would be on the cusp if we had.
When James Brayshaw - “welcome to Sachin Tendulkar” and it’s Sunil Gavascar - is part of the commentary team, you know that most of them have no idea. Declared earlier? 😂

Huge effort this by these two. Really thought one wicket would unlock it and they've held on for over 250 balls together

Great effort by India, but must be said, our bowling has been pretty average and easy to defend against.
