Indian batsmen need to play out first few hours. It should be easy sailings from there. I won't be surprised if India piles up a big first inning total. There does not seem to be much swing off the pitch or the air. Should be a long day for Australian bowlers.
Australian bowlers are trying hard. Pitch is not going to offer much to them. Indian batsmen just need to be patient and play out the first hour. Ball will get old, bowlers will get tired. Easy sailings from there onwards.
The best part of this is that the utterly woeful Sehwag is still useless, even at home. Now at an average of 49.34, rather hopeful that the silly discussions about him just two or three years ago about being a great opener will be put to rest.
I do think this match will progress till 5th day. Pitch here is not as helpful to the spinners as it was in Chennai. Despite all the bashings that it is getting from its fans, Oz batting line up is still a decent one to negate our Okish bowling attack on a not so tough pitch. I would be really surprised if they falter cheaply once again. So expecting a tough fight from them.
