From the first test match onwards i have this doubt in my mind. I wish this just a doubt, but to my disappointment at the end of this second day of the third test my doubt is slowly becoming a reality. I do not know when will India play well in this tour.

First and foremost thank you for such a wonderful heading as it really made me laugh.. You know it is like the 90's all over again and I am reminded of the 96 tour of SouthAfrica.. I used to switch on the TV and sometimes get a doubt which indicated the runs and which were the wickets in the scoreboard.. Well I have totally given up hope and I think the Indians have given up too.. As kohli had told yesterday on the field that the roles will be reversed when Australia tour India.. It is like they have decided in their mind that they are lambs going to the slaughter house and want to make it as painless as possible.. Really the last 2 days of cricket is the saddest I have seen from the Indian team..

Rightly said. From the beginning of this tour india played terribly, in the past tours to australia india played well, but this performance justify nothing, neither the number two position nor the great players of India. Filled with so many great players, i do not see any team with such players and still this awkward performance.

ha ha , a well comment by you at the same time a reality too. All the past three tests were like that. What you said is exactly true as far as Indian time is concerned now. Indian batsmen really disappointed their fans not only in this series but also for the for the past 7 matches in the over seas. Compared to the batsmen i think Indian bowlers were better. As you said I am too afraid that when will India learn to win a test series abroad.

Nice headline. Well you can say that it always been true with India in overseas. When the opponent team bats I used to think, wow it is an easy batting pitch but when India start to bat they prove me wrong every time. Looking at the match state so far I am feeling like another disaster is gonna happen for team India. Well Pattinson is out of Australian test squad currently, and yet the match is being finished in 4 day. I wonder if he be present in the team then how many days it will take to be finished??

Don't you see the perfection of Indian team where there is two batsman who scored impossible 200 in odi of which one is called as god of cricket. Really god has no mercy so did this god in Indizn team had no mercy. Another one who is wall but i think the cement with which it was made or bricke that joined were experied and they can't survive this much load. Mr six hitter who hit six to win the match can't even make six runs in single inning. What more we can see. You are right that the performance from Indian team is like they had gone to see paradise and not play. Don't favour any one both bowlers as well as batsmen had collectively failed and then have no right to say any thing to defend it.

Hasn't this been the cause always whenever India has gone on away tours in the last 20 odd years. Except for a brief period when we did well over the past 3 odd years, India has always struggled. So it is more like going back to our past more than anything. I think till we get our youngsters to replace the aging batting lineup, I think we will continue to struggle. Cheers! Ram
