    0/100 could be a huge score, Hayden has scored 5 tons in his last six Tests on the MCG

    100 up for Australia, they've batted well after overcoming some initially good bowling. India are likely to struggle now, with only two fast bowlers, one of whom doesn't do a great deal with the old ball.

    Rhodes works for South Africa on a part time basis (only for one day cricket) for he has commitments at home, so Iím not sure he would accept such a position on a full time basis, which the Indians surely would need.

    And whoís to say he will have much success for his fielding drills and demands will surely cause some of team Indiaís most experienced players to cry foul. Robin Singh struggled to get certain players on the field for practice when India were preparing for the Oval test match.

    I never get this, why don't fielders on the boundry just stay on the rope until after the ball has been bowled and played so therefore they have the best option of moving. So if it is a potential catch at least they can go forward or sideways or stay where they are without having to run backwards to try and get a catch and when that happens it is likely to be dropped.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Shows how spineless the coaches must be if they let the players run the show. If this isn't the cricket version of Real Madrid where if a coach got on the wrong side of Ronaldo or Raul then the coach was sacked straight away then what is?

    On a big ground they don't want the batsman to take two. Although I agree they should just stay on the fence

    Rather let them take two then have a dropped catch or it going for four or six.

    What a fantastic start by Australia. India getting frustrated amongst themselves. Loving it.

    Australia could get anything here, fields all over the place, singles aplenty and Hayden and Jaques now making it look as easy as you like.
