Wow. 2 Test matches, 2 cracking games. Australia stretched India to the limit in Adelaide and here, except the final innings where the Indian batting caved in, both teams were neck-and-neck and small moments made the difference. We now have a week's break as everyone gets busy in their Christmas festivities. Then, comes Boxing Day which will be Australia's biggest game of the year at the MCG. Do join us for that as the third Test begins on Wednesday, December 26, 2018 at 10.30 am local (2330 GMT, previous night). Hopefully, it is another cracker. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Who is the Man Of The Match? NATHAN LYON! Surprised? Probably not. He has been the difference between the two sides. Is amazed to have played a role in a win as Australia have not tasted victory for a while. Thanks all the support from the supporters and for believing in the team and cannot wait to sing the team's winning song which was passed on to him by Michael Hussey. Credits the entire team for batting well and then bowling with fire. On his own bowling, Lyon says that he did not have to do much as majority of the Indian batsmen came running at him and that aided his bowling. Also, admits that the footholes created by the fast bowlers helped. On having Kohli's number, Lyon says that it feels great to get the number 1 batsman dismissed consistently and the entire team looks forward to try and get him out quickly. On his banter with Pant, Lyon says that it is exciting to watch him play as he is confident to clear the fence with 5 fielders at the boundary, which means that the bowlers are in with a chance regularly.
Now comes the victorious Australian captain Tim Paine. Cheekily admits that this win is more of a relief for him. Is proud of his staff and his boys for working hard and is happy that finally some reward has been earned. Agrees that both Tests have been tough and competitive and both teams have not given an inch. On the patience required when a wicket was not falling, Paine says that after the first hour on Day 1, the pitch seemed to flatten out but given that it was behaving up and down, the team was confident that it was a matter of time when wickets started to fall. Says further that the wicket in general was good to bat. On Khawaja's second innings performance, he says that Usman is in a really good space, very calm at the crease and predicts that a big knock is around the corner. On Lyon, he says that he can give the ball at any time to him and he can give you wickets against any opposition in any part of the world. On the MCG Test, Tim says that it is a great honour to lead the Aussie side in that Test and says that the entire team management is looking forward to that game.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli is up for a chat first with Isa Guha. Kohli says that as a team they played well in patches and admits that Australia played much better than India with the bat and feels 330 was a bit too much and they deserved to win. On being asked for the target, Virat says that in the middle, no one thinks that any target is impossible to chase but when one is in the dressing room, all such thoughts come into the minds. Stresses that India tried hard and were confident but Australia stuck into their task and kept coming hard at the Indians. Praises the Indian bowling attack in the second innings and their relentlessness as if they do not pick up wickets, they do not give runs either. On the Jadeja selection conundrum, VK says that at the toss, he would not have picked Jadeja due to the grass. But praises Lyon for the way he bowled as per the conditions. But stresses that looking at the grass on the first day, four fast bowlers would have been enough was the thought. On this own batting, Kohli says that he is just focussed in contributing to the team's winning cause. On his controversial catch by Handscomb, Virat does not look too much into it and says that the decision stays on the field. Is looking forward to the Boxing Day Test amidst a fill house at the MCG.
You don't see this much often but read this - Indian bowlers were better than their counterparts, that too, in the latter's backyard. But Australia's batsmen outplayed the Indian batters. It will be interesting to see who is awarded the Player Of The Match. Stay tuned for the presentation...
Spare a thought for the Indian bowlers. Before this year started, every Indian fan must have been complaining - 'Our batting is terrific. But our bowling is toothless overseas.' Under Virat Kohli, the bowlers look fired up but sadly for him, the batting is not stepping up. It is a collective failure and even though, one might argue that the management misread the conditions by selecting the wrong playing XI, at some point of time, if the batting does not fire collectively, the team is going to pay for it.
In true manner, Australia have 'bounced back' in this series. The pacers actually bounced out the Indians this morning and it was really ruthless, finishing the game off pretty quickly. Starc has responded to Shane Warne's criticism pretty well, strutting his fitness with 5 wickets and quality bowling. Hazlewood and Cummins did their bit and the biggest difference in this match - NATHAN LYON - 53.5-10-106-8 - bit the Indians hard. Their ploy of not going in with a specialist spinner backfired. Without a doubt, Ravindra Jadeja or Kuldeep Yadav could have influenced the outcome of this match.
If you just look at this match alone, we can compare it with India's batting performances in England. Kohli stands out, without a doubt. But cricket is a team game. This bloke has been scoring around 50-60 percent of the team's totals since 2018 in Tests and eventually, when the opposition attack is better, the rest of the batting line-up gets exposed. The hosts needed a good start to make a fist of this run chase and probably, the game was sealed in the 20th over, when the captain edged one to slip.
Was this a match where a win at the toss meant a win at that time itself? Perhaps. Have a look at the innings run-rates. The hosts played at around 3 an over. India replied with 2.67. Then it was only 2.6 for the Kangaroos in their second dig. And in the final innings, it came down to 2.5. Clearly, the pitch got more and more difficult to bat as the game progressed and eventually, a target of 287 was way too many for India.
Bumrah and Shami have to wait a while to shake hands. The Aussies take a moment for themselves. They have not got an opportunity to do this for so many months. Every player is hugging one another and just crushing each other's hair. Finally, they disperse and the players shake hands. Well played, Australia.
'Series is on, boys and girls!' says an excited Michael Clarke on air. Sensational win for Australia. First win for Australia since March 2018. 5 losses and 1 draw have preceded this match. First win for Tim Paine as captain. First win for Justin Langer as coach. Boy, aren't they delighted!

Pat Cummins To Jasprit Bumrah OUT!
OUT! It is all over! India are bowled out for 140. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 146 RUNS AND THE SERIES IS BACK LEVEL AT 1-1. The ball is on a good length and Bumrah looks to go for a slog but manages to get just a top edge. The ball goes high in the air but Pat Cummins takes a smart catch while sitting down right in front of the non-striker's end stumps. What a morning, 5 wickets within an hour and it wouldn't be far-fetched to say that this was on the cards too. It was just a matter of one wicket in the morning. The Aussies are elated and there are massive celebrations, hasn't taken them long to nip this off.

Mitchell Starc To Umesh Yadav OUT!
OUT! Brutal is the word. Starc gives the Indians a taste of their own medicine. Yesterday, Shami and Bumrah were aiming at the batsman's head. Today, it is Starc's turn to give it back. Yadav backs away to hit this away but the bowler follows him and the ball is aimed at Umesh's head. The bouncer is too good for the tailender and all he can do is just hang his bat out in front of his face. The ball goes off the top of the handle and pops up back to Starc for what probably could be one of the easiest catches of his career. Australia just 2 away now!

Woah! Turn and bounce and almost had Ishant off the first ball. Well outside off, Ishant wants to feel the ball but misses. Paine goes up in an appeal almost instantly and then the others follow suit. The umpire wants nothing to do with it though.
Ishant Sharma is in at number 9.

Nathan Lyon To Rishabh Pant OUT!
OUT! What a stunning catch from Handscomb. Pant departs. It was nicely tossed up by Lyon on middle, Pant charges down the track and tries to whack it over mid-wicket but hits his inside half of the bat and the ball flies towards Handscomb at short mid-wicket who dives full-length to his left and takes a brilliant catch. That must surely be curtains for India now. Australia need 3 wickets more to level the series.

A loud appeal but the umpire is unmoved! The ball is short of a length and seems to have landed in line. It keeps low and Umesh who is jumping thinking that the ball will bounce, is rapped on the pads. But the impact seems to be outside off and the ball seems to be missing off. Probably what made the decision go in favor of the batsman. That was quick, 142.6 kph to be precise.

Marcus Harris comes around from his third man position and in the nick of time, sees that Nathan Lyon also is running in his direction from sweeper cover.

Mitchell Starc To Hanuma Vihari OUT!
OUT! There is the wicket! There is the opening and it has come due to the extra speed of Mitchell Starc. The ball is on a length, pitching just on middle and leg. Vihari who was playing inside the line, gets an inside edge and the ball hits his thigh pad and lobs up for a simple catch to Harris at mid-wicket. The Aussies are elated. They knew that one wicket will open up the way to the long Indian tail. Starc has provided the breakthrough and now a quick finish is on the cards. Australia need 4 more wickets to win.

Nathan Lyon To Hanuma Vihari
Well outside off to start off with, left alone by Vihari.
The two batsmen, the fielders and the umpires make their way out to the middle. Hanuma Vihari to take strike on the first ball of the last day. It will be bowled by Nathan Lyon.
Michael Vaughan with the pitch report on Day 5 says that the cracks have widened more than ever and points to a huge patch outside the right-hander's off stump. Feels that Nathan Lyon should be the most effective and bowling from one end continuously. Ends by saying it has been a brilliant pitch for Test match cricket.
Welcome to Day 5 of this closely contested Test match between Australia and India. Australia are within touching distance of victory going into the final day going into Day 5 as they require just 5 wickets to level the series. With the pitch opening up and helping the fast bowlers and spinners, Tim Paine and co. will be looking to wrap it up as soon as possible. Coming to the visitors, they have lost half their side and India will be hoping the likes of Hanuma Vihari and Rishabh Pant show some fight and get them over the line. Should be a cracking day of Test cricket. Do join us in some time for all the action.
... Day 5, Session 1 ...
So, looking forward to the final day, then. 175 runs or 5 wickets? The latter certainly looks easier. But you never know in cricket. Funny things happen and the match isn't over till the last ball is bowled. Australia are the firm favorites to win and bring the series back to level terms, but this new India is unlikely to go down without a fight. Join us for Day 5 from Perth beginning at 1020 local (0220 GMT). Till then, goodbye and cheers!
The day began with a very slow first session when the overnight batsmen continued till Lunch while not scoring too fast. What followed was madness as the hosts lost 4 wickets for 6 runs. But the last pair managed to stave off the pace and took the target for India to 287. The Indian chase began poorly, losing both Rahul and Pujara before Tea. Kohli and Vijay fought for a bit but they too fell to the guile of Lyon. And at the fag end of the day, Rahane was also lost. The current pair managed to survive the remaining overs but they have a huge task on their hands tomorrow if they want to keep the scoreline at 0-1 or make it 0-2.
What a day of cricket! The hosts have come alive and how! They first batted almost more than half the day to get to 243 and then have scalped 5 wickets of the Indians. The tourists need 175 runs to win and the Aussies need 5 wickets. And considering the frailty of the Indian tail, the hosts have a massive upper hand in the game. Hanuma Vihari and Rishabh Pant are the last recognized batting pair at the crease. The pitch is responding beautifully to Nathan Lyon and there is also variable bounce for the pacers. India will be wondering where they went wrong, some indecision, some poor shots, and some times you just had to give it to wonderful bowling by the hosts.

Drinks break. The visitors will surely need it. India in a fair bit of trouble for sure. Wickets of Kohli and Vijay are big ones and Lyon was the one to provide them both. Rahul before them was dismissed cheaply again by Starc and Pujara was on his way quickly too. The hosts are in a commanding position as things stand.

Nathan Lyon To Murali Vijay OUT!
OUT! Nathan Lyon getting the job done for his side yet again. Using the rough outside that off stump to good effect. Lands it there and it spins in sharply, Vijay comes forward to defend with a fair amount of gap between bat and pad. The ball takes the inside edge and crashes into the leg stump. Vijay's poor form continues, another failure for him. He'll be disappointed too after getting his eye in.

Nathan Lyon To Virat Kohli OUT!
OUT! Who else but Nathan Lyon? You need to get the big fish and it obviously has to be him to strike. Superb delivery. The Australians celebrate because they know the importance of this wicket. Lyon tosses it up outside off, draws Kohli forward who plays for the turn when there isn't any. It goes on straight, takes the edge and flies into Khawaja's hands who takes a sharp, low catch. India need 239 more runs to win.

... Day 4, Session 3 ...
With half an hour to go for Tea, the Indian openers came out to bat. But it just took four balls for KL Rahul to walk back to the dressing room. He was cleaned up by Starc but that wasn't it. What followed was what they would cherish even more, the wicket of Pujara. 6 overs of hostile bowling was what it was. Virat Kohli and Murali Vijay at the crease now. Can they survive this attack in the last session of Day 4 on a minefield of a pitch or are we going to see India crumble? The third session in just a bit.
If the first session today was a passenger train, moving slow, then this second session was a bullet train, blowing away everything in its way with its speed. Tim Paine departed on the sixth ball of the session and what followed was a procession of sorts. Aaron Finch returned today but lasted all of one ball. The ones who came in left quickly too. The last wicket stand though added 36 runs and when Mitchell Starc was bowled, the lead was already 286.

Wide! Banged in short but it's too short, wide called by the umpire. Good take by Tim Paine behind the stumps. Head to leap really high.

Josh Hazlewood To Cheteshwar Pujara OUT!
OUT! Australia have their second and the celebrations are huge. It is the big wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara. The ball is on a good length outside off and climbs onto Pujara who is looking to fend it off towards cover. The ball though, just straightens a little bit and takes a feather on its way through. Paine collects and is up in celebration almost immediately. The highest-run getter in the series is gone and this is a huge wicket in the context of the game. India need another 274 and Australia need 8.

Josh Hazlewood To Cheteshwar Pujara
Edged and four! The ball is on off and Pujara looks to defend it straight back. The ball takes his edge but the good thing is that the batsman has played it with soft hands. Goes wide off a diving Shaun Marsh in the slips. There is no third man and it is the 2nd boundary in three balls.

Typical bowler's response. Bouncer aimed at the head. Vijay ducks under it and lets it go through. Some words from Starc to Vijay.

FOUR! Using the pace of the bowler here. Served up outside off on a length and Vijay just pushes it in the gap wide of point. The ball races away to the fence. Good shot, should give the out of form opener a lot of confidence.

4 BYES! Absolute ruckus here from the pitch! The ball rares off a good length outside off, Vijay decides to leave it. The ball bounces way too much and beats a jumping Tim Paine behind the wickets and goes for four byes.

Oooh! Misbehaviour from the wicket again. Bounces off a good length and catches Pujara on the bottom glove as he was trying to defend. Luckily it drops onto the off side and not towards short leg who is in place.

Mitchell Starc To Lokesh Rahul OUT!
OUT! Timberrrr. Australia draw first blood without a run on the board for the visitors. Rahul has failed once again and not gotten off the mark. There is a lot of doubt in his head and this is what happens when you are out of form. Just outside off and Rahul who is looking to play, is uncertain and decides to leave the ball very late. The decision costs him as it goes off the inside of his glove and onto the off stump. Just the start the hosts would've liked!

A jaffa from Starc to start off! Rahul chases it trying to feel the ball but the ball holds its line and beats him on the outside edge. The crowd is really egging on the pacer here.
