Quick/risky singles are, at least in my mind, only meant to be taken to put pressure back on the opposition, don't get the point of it when India wherein complete control at the time.
I don’t think it would have crossed Jadeja’s mind on any score other than 49; Labuschagne knew it, Rahane wasn’t anticipating it as much as he ought to have been.

Marnus wasn’t anticipating that one, mind.

So the approach is to murder the Indian bowlers so we can all get out to Vihari long-hops in the 2nd innings?
If you’re not going to hold your catches then it’s knocking the stumps over or going all stick cricket on the batsmen.

Has anyone noticed the amount of Sheffield shield reminiscing on comms has skyrocketed recently just to allow Brayshaw to remind viewers he played the game?

Tbf lyon has created a chance that got dropped but I feel like pace from both ends would be better here.

Next ball he gets yadav.

Spark to be pleased that just about the only ball that Lyon has bowled below 89kph grabs a wicket.

restricting india to 326 honestly isn't a terrible effort at all, but nevertheless india well in front at this point

india really has no tail though. had smith taken that catch and/or been standing at first slip as he should have, then this would be a real arm-wrestle at this point.
