    That Ponting mounts rescue missions with the lower order again and again?

    When asked what the IPL means for seasoned pros like him, Dravid smiled and neatly deflected the question: it is a different world altogether, he said. "The other day I walked the ramp as part of a promotional event. When I started my career, I never imagined this would be part of a cricketer's life!"

    Australia are a pathetically soft unit

    Given the positions that they have gotten themselves into in both tests, the absolute worst result that they should have achieved in this series is a 1-0 victory

    However, it's now odds on that they will bowl utter **** today, collapse in their 4th innings
    and be beaten 2-0 with barely a whimper

    Sorry to sound defeatist but we've seen it too many times before

    Agree. Need some steel, but I'm not sure we have the players coming through who are hardened.

    Haha its funny they were in such an incredible position, and just lost it soo bad. I went to bed when we were 0/170 ish. I dont think Watson should be at the top of the order. Its fair enough against weaker opposition when he dominates them and kinda sets the tone (which doesn't really matter in Test cricket) but we need someone who will grit it out and not play a rash shot when the bowling gets tough. Warner is awesome, but opening with him will only make it worse imo. Perhaps Mash & Hughes would be more stable, not really sure.

    Kinda sick of losing though lol

    Game's too close to predict which way it's going to go with any great confidence but you gotta think the day is set up for Kallis and AB to get a score today.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I'm still hoping they fail miserably and possibly die of anal cancer.

    Very impressed with Cummins, he's quickly adjusted to Test matches, bowling in good areas.
