And we're not wholly throwing the game under any rat-driven bus, but it needed something more to elevate its lofty goals...

im not a fan of the hang around for ever approach. u need to be scoring runs. yes its a test match, yes its quality bowling, but u should wherever possible be looking to get to the other end, just so you are rotating strike and keeping things moving.

old mate from india had nearly 200 dot balls in his 100 runs. that is seriously impressive and requires control far beyond the mere mortal. australia should not be looking to play that way.

The days of Hayden, Ponting and Gilchrist hitting 600 in a day and a half are over. Someone grinding out a ton is the best we can hope for at least until Smith and Warner are back

Smarsh's dismissal was comically awful.

This is more like the cautious, low scoring test matches of the 1970s. It's been a very long time since we've seen such low scores combined with such super careful play.

Yes, by all means, defend your wicket, but don't do it with lazy singles perpetually that in one dayers you'd have them be comfortable doubles

Should I even book tickets for sydney new year tests this year? Are we competitive? I have pretty much given up on following everything since the ball tampering debacle.

There's some pretty disappointing performers in Australia's top order.

Good on the indians, they played a good game. And yeah, Nathan is the goat alright.

huge effort form our bowlers with the bat to get that close and give us even a half sniff of a chance.

yeah i was very surprised we got that close, but relying on the tail to put up that many runs and make it a close one is not great.

if we get 250 odd in front, should be very difficult for india to chase.

Impressed by Hazlewood's economy as a pretty consistent thing

No wonder the goat got man of the match - 8/106 across the two innings

I haven't seen a close up replay but I guess the video umpire decided that the bat popped up at the time the bails were disturbed. Good on the Strikers for calling the batsman back.

new rule is that only something has to be in and then you cant be run out. there is no way, even with benefit of the doubt going to the batsmen that it was out.

its embarassing for the umpires that the strikers had to do the right thing and refuse the decision.

insane.

I am just glad the heat batsman didn't walk. But aside from that the Heat performance was woeful. Bowlers were garbage.
