This is all working out beautifully for Australia as far as the Test Championship is concerned.
A draw here helps us much more than a win to either side.

I can't see Jack Laker & Dom Lock taking 20 wickets here, or the other bowlers.

Wow!... Take a bow Joe Root... Another 200 on the sub-continent.

If it wasn't for a freakish run-out he most likely would've scored a double century in 3 consecutive tests... all on the sub-continent..... all in a space of about 3 weeks... and all by the first week of February.Insane!

First English player in over 35 years to score a double century in India.

Just casually hits the best spinner in the world over his head at his home ground to bring up his 2nd double century in 3 matches. Legend.

I know it's irrelevant that the freak runout in SL has deprived him of 200s in three consecutive tests, but has anyone ever done that?

Can England win this 3-0 and make the final? Unlikely I know, but it would be perfect for NZ to help erase the nightmares of 2019

Closest I think is Sangakkara who scored 200, 222, 192, 152 in consecutive tests. In the other innings of those same games he got 57 and 92
So in other words it took a horrible umpiring decision at Hobart to rob Sangakkara of that feat & a freakish run-out to deprive Root of his.

When batsman are in that sort of purple patch it's pretty much the only way it happens really.

That 192 was in Hobart and he got a shocking decision, given out caught after the ball came off his shoulder, onto his helmet and caught at gully, he was livid.
Definitely would have got another 200.
