After a little bit poor bowling to bowled out australia on 333, INDIA is on a strong position with score of 207/2 sachin and dravid are firm and playing well. Sachin is on 69 and hope he make it up today. Gambhir fell quickly and sachin smash good but i like more from dravid, he is playing too slow he msut play little faster.

Well i think the game is nicely balanced at the moment, Indians were in great position just 10 minutes before the end of the day's play but the wicket of tendulkar has just changed the things. It now totally depends on Indians how they play from here, they can get a lead of about 150 if they play according to their potential, but batting is is not gonna be easy specially in the morning session, so the Indians really have to powers themselves as this is a great chance for them to make a early lead in the series.

Oh yes, if we had not lost the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar, we would have been in a tremendous position . But, we we lost him in the final over of day 2 by a perfectly bowled in-swing delivery by Siddle .

Well game is favour of INDIA and may shift to Australia if they bowl well and INDIAN batsman uselessly threw thier bat to balls and play like stupids. Yes it true If sachin have not got out, then the situtation would have been much better and we are in more strong postion than we are right now. But, still nothing had gone still have chances there that INDIA will score more and take a good lead and make up. I think alead of 150 is good but i wan to have around 200 becuase it let INDIA play less in fourth inning. Yes lead in siers would be good if INDIA won here and probablity of winning the match is high. We can do it if dravid laxman will gon make good runs. Also we need support of bowlers in the next inning. @thewonderboy, it happen sometime good balls can get a very good batsman out. That is what cricket is for. This make it more valuable as well as intereting.

Till now, the match is evenly poised with India has little edge over Ausssies but as in Test match, tommorow is a fresh day and anything can happen. India are not going to make runs and runs, Oz bowlers would also have their share of success. Overall, the third day is as important as first two days. I think all the five days are going to be fantastic with draw chances are very low. What do you say rajeev?

Yes, what we need is to overcome the first 30 or 45 minutes. The bowl may swing a little more in the starting of day 3 . We can hope for a nice total tomorrow. Only Gautam Gambhir failled to score well, all other top order batsmen were just outstanding .

anilhclites you are right each day is fresh day and INDIA have little uper edge and they are not so so dominating the match. But is not true that INDIANS will not able to make runs tmorrow and it false baseles idea in you mind. I guess you are not in fav of INDIA but speak with mind. If INDIA play little well they will cross Austrilia score and take the lead. Yesterday's score will decide who going to win this macth for sure or if there is chnces of draw. You can't completely ignore the chances of draw. If INDIA made a lead of say 100 or 150 and aussies played good in second Inning and they put score of 250 or 300 for victory and thus INDIA will have to defend them self to make draw.

India is in a position to consolidate tomorrow. But India has slipped from similar strong situations because of some poor batting in the recent past. But there seems to be nothing in the wicket to cause alarms. Unlike the Indian bowlers the Aussies have not been able to swing the ball and if Indians apply themselves tomorrow and score quickly they can win this match. When Australia bat a second time they will struggle. Dravid has played a gem again and Sachin and Sehwag have made handsome contributions. By the way Dravid does not have to play rapidly there are others like Dhoni, ,VVS and Virat. His presence will ensure India's strong position by end of tomorrow.

yes INDIA is in a good situation but they need to be careful tomorrow. What you told that, INDIA had slipped from similar situation in past is true that's why they need to be little careful. There is need to play patencily by INDIAN. Rahul dravid need to keep him self there and make a good century. Indian blowers had better chances but they didn't utilized it as well as they would have. Now let is over. Talk about current situation, wicket had opened and it easy to play now. INDIA must score above 500 hundred take a good lead and them bowl well to win the match. Shewag, sachin and dravid all played good and they make a good postion for rest of the batsman to score. I think now Dravid should score 100 as well as Austrilia's fav player Laxman make his way and let a huge score. So we can aspect little from both captain dhoni and young kholi.

India slips yet again.From now on India will have its backs to the wall but the match has come alive and both teams will struggle to win this one. Australia seems to be on top right now but India will fight and let us see what Australia come up with in the second innings. Let us see if the Big three come up with a match winning effort in the second innings. I feel now the key to India's fight back is with the bowlers. Zaheer, Umesh and Ashwin, I suppose.

surely India is in a strong position, Sachin once again missed the ton, but played well. If India keep going like this, then we can surely win this match.

yeah it is unfortunate that sachin lost his wicket in last over and unable hit century. He played very well. INDIA had lost only 3 wickets and croseed 200 marks thus there is chances that INDIA will make huge runs yesterday and make sure they have lead of 200. Only player who are coming to play tomorrow will have to make sure they don't go cheaply. Each of them contributes aroudn 40-50 runs then INDIA will be in role. I hoping Laxaman as his fav opponets, like hit century tommorow.

Unfortunately, Sachin fell in the last over of the day to Siddle. But India still have the advantage with around 100 runs behind with 7 wickets in hand. I think the key would be the first session tomorrow. If India can bat it out without losing more than a wicket or two, then can then power on for a big score and really put Australia in the back foot. Cheers! Ram

Really it was unfortunate to see tendulkar out in last over. He was playing good and was planning the striking of ball in very good ways but it all vain. ANyway leave it. There may be another chance that he will hit. Yes INDIA is just trailing by 119 runs and still 7 wickets is in Hand and dravid is firm there. Hope INDIA bat well in cruscila first session and thereafter make a big lead. It is necessary that all middle order contributes. If middle order contributes and INDIA have lead of 200-250 it would be a good lead and the chances of wining the game will be more.

Yeah India closed the day-2 comfortably with a good score in the score board. But to our disappointment Sachin again missed the chance to score his record ton. But Dravid is batting brilliantly and hope he can give some good lead to team India.

Oh! To my disappointment as well sachin missed. It was good chance though as he was player at good rate.Strike rate of sachin was more than 78. Well when i was writing this discussion i feel they may few more overs but what to say. Well it still not that bad 214/3 is not a bad score and from here INDIA must captized the stong hold with dravid still there. I hope as i said INDIA must cross 500 and took lead of atleast of 200.

Definitely India is in a good position now . We have lost only three wickets and so many are still to come. But, what India need is some quality performance. I hope tomorrow the pitch may favor batsmen so that we can hope for a big first innings total. And to build a pressure on Australia .

India is in a better postion and they need to captilizes it. If they move in good direction surely the match is in our hand we INDIAN will won it. Condtion of victory here is only one play good, don't take pressure. Dravid is on crease and hope he will make century as well same is ascpected from laxman. Rest of batsamen too need to contribute to make the rusn lead to high. A lead of 200 be good and i am wishing it.

hello Rajiv, Yes INDIA has a little edge over AUSTRALIA at present and hope we take a high lead and put pressure on Aussies.Its been great start for us as always i have seen it before Ist match in AUSTRALIA we take lot of time to adjust there but this time we adjusted so early to the climate and conditions there. Again it was a disappointment as SACHIN could completed the century.

First of all i prefer to call as Rajeev and not rajiv as i love my name like you would your. I am talk of real name and it is mine real name. Now come to the topic, It can't be completely said that match is now in fav of INDIA. Australia have chances to bounces back and they can. ALL INDIA have to doo is to play patiencly and make runs without any loss of wickets at regular times. Make good partnerships and build the inning from this strong position. If they do so suddenly they will have a fine lead and this help us in get advantage. Next is to put pressure on Australia and bowl well and make sure that, they didn't score mcuh and try to bowled them under the lead to win with an inning. Sachin loss yes i too disappointed, well he should have little careful in last over. Oh! it happen why?

After the fall of Sachin, I feel the honors have been shared. India still are 114 runs behind and we know how things change now a days. India though have strong batting line up to follow witn Dravid still at the crease. India's strong middle order of Laxman, Dhoni, Virat and Ashwin with a test century in his kitty, if perform even to half their strength, can easily take a lead of 100 plus. That will be must for India if they have to save this match as they will have to bat last on this wicket, which is sure to crumble by late third day. Let us see how things shape up first hour tomorrow morning.

What " honors have been shared " mean? It unfortunate to see sachin bowled out last over. But INDIA still have much more chance. There is correction 144 trial is not it 119 trail. INDIA had made 214, and 333-214=119. ANy way leve that small mistkae. Dravid is still there but i want him to play little faster. If he does than INDIA will be in better postion. I also want laxamn to hit big runs and offcourse his fav opponent is there so he will make up. Dhoni and kholi too contribute little to have lead of 200+ will be handy. I hope INDIA will make more than 500 and with big lead and also that they wil have to face no bowling in fourth inning or only few overs. If wicket crumble by late third day then INDIAN bowlers have chances to take quick wickets and bowled out austrailia in cheap in third inning.
