India vs Australia BGT
« on: February 09, 2023, 08:44:20 AM »

A lot of talk about the Nagpur pitch pre game but seems to be a pretty typical Indian wicket - not the crazy surfaces England played on.

Aus won the toss and batted - dropped Head for Renshaw very strangely who then got a duck.

Jadeja doing what he does and being class and currently has 4 for 45 off 20 as Aus are 174-8 at tea. Wickets of Labuschagne (49) and Smith (37) are worth watching.

It's on BT Sport or Talk Sport 2 Radio (which is what I am listening to) but they are talking SEN radio feed so is actually decent commentary - Adam Collins is one of the primary hosts.

Definitely India's day today.
Good performance from Jadaja and Rohit with the bat.

Dropping Head was daft.

Waugh gave the dropping of Head both barrels earlier.

He's played a fair bit of big bash this year, looked decent line and length merchant. Interesting with the big turn all spinners going around the wicket, guess also to do with the lefty wicket that's been made.

All the talk about wickets prepared for left handed batsmen and two left handed Indian bowling all rounders scored fifties! The Aus are just too caught up in the hype I feel. Made some strange selection calls.

Just play the ball, all the chat about the wicket is hot air. Jadaja is a wonderful player.

A great and often overlooked player.

Saw a brilliant tweet earlier about Rohit Sharma. One of the most exceptional batsman to never be the world's greatest in any format. A true quality player.

How do you compete with that Indian attack in home conditions? As if Ashwin-Jadeja wasn't hard enough, they've now got essentially another, possibly better Jadeja.

Australia were blown away. All this hype about the wicket seems to have played more in their heads than the actual wicket.

Australia defeated themselves by whining about the wicket. Wouldnt happen in Bazball!

Rare to see Aus drop so many catches. They looked shot in the field by the time Jadeja and Axar got together.
