    Great to watch this run of play. Tendulkar and Dravid are so awesome.

    I'd say evenly poised right now. A big partnership now puts India on top, a couple of wickets and the Aussies will be all over it. Stuey's spell will be huge now.

    Sure it does.

    God, a bowler apologises now to a batsman for appealing. What's it all coming to?

    Good to see Dravid batting better here. After about 12 chances in the series, he should be finding some form too.

    Reckon he might have apologised for hitting his arm after Sachin showed it TBH.

    Key point in the match now you feel - Dravid & Tendulkar well set & satrting just to up the run rate so Pointing brings back the bowler who gives him the most control Stuart Clark .

    In hindsight does it look like a bad decision to drop Hogg (or not play a front line spinner at all)? as the pitch is looking awfully flat ATM.

    I don't like this one-paced nature of the Australian attack in this game, Indian batsmen seem to getting more comfortable against the Australian pace attack and only Clark and Lee (to a lesser extent) seem to be troubling them.

    But if poor old Hoggy couldn't get wickets day 5 in Sydney, what's he gonna do here by way of taking wickets? Variation would be handy mind.

    Yeah he bowled rubbish in India's 2nd dig @ Sydney but anyone can have bad day.

    But has he been dropped on the basis of what happend @ Sydney or because of the expected pace & bounce from the WACA pitch suiting the Quick bowlers?

    I reckon however if Hogg had gotten 5 and bowled Australia to victory in Sydney rather than Clarke and Symonds, he'd be playing today and Tait would be in for Johnson.
