[AUS vs. IND]

Pujara. :(

Interesting that there's good spin on Day 1 here, could be spicy.

Garry has got it bending around corners.

Indian openers not up to much as expected. Might as well open with Pujara.

Lyon taking wickets in the first innings is sickening.

Kohli's pull is every bit the equal of Bell's cover drive.

It's amazing to me that Umesh strawberry floating Yadav has managed to get Labuschagne out. Christ.

I think the Aussies are going to win this. India out for less than 200 and a relatively serene run chase.

Big Josh has just bowled 5-3-8-5 to help bowl India out for 36.

I didn't mean that much under 200, strawberry floating hell.

8-)

With Kohli going home now that's got to be India done for the whole series. I don't see them coming back without him coupled with the injuries they've picked up.

Where's the best place to find highlights for this series? I thought it was on bt sport (which I don't have) but can't find it in their YouTube channel?

Cricket Australia put highlights on YouTube but there's a bit of a delay. Most recent one is from the previous day's play:

Now if only India can capitalise this time...

I’m enjoying SA vs. SL. I’ve got to say, seeing SL rack up runs for fun against this once-dominant cricketing force wasn’t great, but now they’ve fought back a bit and there have been lots of runs and wickets today. Good contest.

Elsewhere, Mount Maunganui should never be used for cricket ever again.
