3rd day............make or brake day for Australia. If India score 150-180 more runs, Australia may be out of the game!

India - 330
Australia - 212
India - 52/1 (11.0 ov)
India lead by 170 runs.

Good luck to both teams!

For IND a lead of
250 will be terrible and perhaps not defendable.
300 will be disappointing but still defendable
350 will be good and the team will be confident of depending that.
400 will be very good and IND should defend that
450+ will be great and would almost be too much for the Aussies

p.s W63 seems like you copied by MSN display pic :D
 
Australia will come all guns blazing. From now on.. mental factor takes over the skill factor. Who is going to show more desire.. Ozzies know how to win from any situation. Indians know how to lose from any situation. India's new coach who is going to take over this Indian side is there.
 
Players on the field. Will India be 172-7 at tea or 145 all out? lot of question being asked in Madras and we will find that answer in 5 hours
 
It is nice to see Sehwag and Pathan bat confidently and score at a decent rate
 
Ishwar be with Shewag and Allah be with Pathan and let them score 100 each
 
Sachin Help us now...your last innings in Perth. Please make it memorable.
 
That's a pretty considerable lead - if they add another hundred it will be very hard to chase that, even with two days left to bat.

I don't know if I can stay up to watch this again - I'm exhausted at work these days after staying up till 2am to watch the first two sessions of each day so far.
 
with dravid, there goes the chances of winning the match. Unless Tendulkar can bring a reminscent '92 Perth performance, it is over.
 
Tendu averages 16 in 2nd innings against Aus. What will he do today :happySwit
 
Tendy with a bit of gamesmanship, holding Lee up.
 
Dravid gone too, Aus right back in this match if they get 2 more quickly.
 
commentators Beanud and Nicholas analyzing the Dravid snicko. Was there an edge or did the bat hit the pad/ A big question and Asad Rauf is the umpire

So was it or not? Cricinfo says Lee to Dravid, OUT, Lee gets him! The ball starting to swing away from the second it leaves the hand, Dravid comes out to try to cover drive, but the bat's away from his body and he gets a thin nick
 
it was out. I think they were just looking at the snicko as when the tsunami came on the straight line the bat was also hitting the pad
 
India in total control at this point, and I have no doubt that they will take this one home and hopefully the last test as well :19:

Cav I think thats a bit too early to say. I feel Aus *might* chase down anything around 350 on their day, granted they could be all out too but if a few of them click then they score very fast.

I think India wont feel safe with anything under 480-500.

They will turn up once India is in a more prominent position. they are still not that confident. :)))

Star and Zee are playing some bollywood song to gather emotional support so many are on the street for this serious business

I don't have sattelite so I can't get desi channels. Though cable has one Zee TV channel but I don;t have cable either
 
Don't mean to be offensive, but Pathan has found his balls again. He is a VERY handy player when he's confident.

India looking good, Another 100-125 runs and Australia will have to bat out of their skins.
 
This game is India's right now. Get to 350 and win instead of relaxing for a session in middle

Tendu out LBW off Lee
Ind 116-4
 
Huge wicket there, Tendy gone for 13 on what is likely his last Perth Test.

I'm an Ozzy, but I'm based in the US right now for work. So it's 10:45pm right now. I'll try and stick it out till 12 but I'm knackered.

watching on DirecTV coverage on Willow. subscribed it for a last 2 years. But probably won't do it this year because covered series are not that good though price has gone down for this year probably because Zee sports is here.
 
Its ok if Tendulkar has failed. Stuff happens...He is still in good form and continue for another 1-2 years

what was the name of the batsman who scored 71 in the first innings? :11:
