5 wickets to win, 174 to defend.
Excellent end to the day, we can't not be happy about the position we are now in with Pujara, Kolhi and Rahene all gone. Important partnership between Khawaja and Paine and then Starc and Hazlewood to help build a sizeable lead. All the momentum with us now, hopefully we can get some early wickets tomorrow and put it beyond doubt.

Has been some great banter between both sides picked up by the stump microphones.

Paine telling Virat a few home truths and Harris with a zinger before the last ball last night to Pant about getting out and sampling the Perth Night club scene.

In the early 80's the Ashes was massive rivalry, towards the arse end the 80's the Frank Worrell Trophy became the #1 from my view.

It ebbed and flowed through the nineties and beyond as the Windies died off, South Africa emerged and England had their peaks and troughs but what transpires when India and Australia meet is a different level IMO, has been since the Tendulkar vs Warne/McGrath days, now there's that extra bit of venom from both sides, classic battles.

I do not like Virat Kohli but I love watching him bat, I hate and love his arrogance, I liken his captaincy to Steve Waugh's, he's a competitor and backs himself and his troops.

If you follow the trend of the game, now the ball is 40 overs old it may be easier to bat for the next 40 overs until the new ball, at 3 runs per over if India can keep their wickets in tact (big if) they will get withing 50-60 by the time the new ball comes out, how good would that scenario be to finish this test.

And this is why Test cricket is the best form of cricket and it must be protected by those of us who know the previous statement is true.

It's not just the ball that's providing the variation but the pitch.
I don't think they will last to lunch even.

Once one of these two go they will fold like a deck of cards, for an international team ranked #1 in tests, they have the the worst #8 going around you'd imagine, Ishant would be a clear #11 if he was playing for us.

Pant will have to belt some around, look for some pockets in the field perhaps.

Pitch goes flat with the old ball, you could be right though. But also could be a fascinating day.

Agree, makes them not picking Jadeja even worse, he averages 32 in tests and got a 100 at Lords no long ago, would be handy at 8.

I read an article that he doesn't get on with Kohli.

There biggest mistake this test was picking yadav over jadeja. Jadeja is a quality number 8 and frankly on this pitch would have been difficult to play, plus yadav just leaks to many runs.

Correct.

It's also why tests should stay at five days.

Nothing wrong with four day matches at Shield level, but it's great to see the ebbs and flows over a marathon five days at the ultimate level of cricket.
