Considering 215/6 or something its good score for Australia team but India can be happy to restrict them below 350. Now India need a good start from gambir and shewag. Hope middle order clicks well for India. Hoping India will score more than 500 in first innings.

Yes India needs a good start but Gambhir didn't make it in the openings. Sehwag as usual he played his game. As of now 99/2 India in a good position. Still Sachin and Dravid are on the track now. I hope India will make a good score and give its best at the end of the day.

Yes, Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid is now on the crease and both of them seems settled. I hope these two may build up a good partnership and releases the chasing pressure of India. There are a number of batsmen still to come and so we can expect at least 400 or 350. Now Sachin Tendulkar scored 24 runs from just 23 balls. I think he is going for his 100th century .

Unfortunately Sachin got out for just 73 by a superb delivery form Peter Siddle. We need to wait some more for his 100th century .

I think the 7th wicket partnership in the last session yesterday really hurt India. Had India got a breakthrough at that point in time, they could have wrapped up Australia around 250. But even after this partnership, 333 is not such a bad performance for Indian bowlers. More importantly, Zaheer seems to be coming back to his best. Cheers! Ram

Definitely Indian bowlers had done a good job by bowling the Australian below 350 runs. If Australians have scored more that 350 then it would be difficult for Indian batsmen as they will be under pressure. Now I think Indian Bolwers have done their job and rest is with the Indian batsmen. They have to bat well and should give a lead of around 180-200 runs then I think there will be enough chance for team India in this test match.

Yes, India tied up Australia from scoring more than 350. At one moment I thought they may reach at least 400. But, Indian bowlers bowled well and ended Australian innings for just 333 . Zaheer Khan picked up two more wickets and in total he picked up 4 wickets . Aswin has also taken two more wickets today .

It was 214/6 not 215/6 just a little correction not mind it. Now see that about 118 runs for the 4 wickets and of the tails very poor bowling from the Indians and i hope they will do good in the 2nd inning. I had hoped they would have closed the austrailan inning about 270 odds runs. But as usual the old sickness of Indian bowlers they can reput off the tails eaisly. In 3 overs INDIA is at 6/0 at luch break. Hope they will have a good start. The good start will help middle order to build a biger score. I too hope INDIA to get more than 500. Atleast lead of 200 is important. Good luck team INDIA.
