I've been watching the Aussies for 30 years and I don't think I've seen a weaker batting line up.

Weaker than the one we blew away for 60? 

Harsh!  :( :D :o

That was one of those magic days you just can't believe what was happening. I still rate Clarke as one of the best batters I've seen, not sure he's a decent bloke, but that not important.

Warner and smith get runs, they are vital and whether we like watching the,(smith) he is a phenomenal player.

After them two.....don't know, who is high class in that side now? I don't know.

We lost 0-4.....I'm following this series very closely. India will win but will Australia do better than we did.....

Warner, Rodgers, Smith, Clarke, Voges, S Marsh, Nevill

Versus

Warner, Renshaw, S Marsh, Smith, Handscomb, Wade, M Marsh

Not a whole lot in it really...

Interesting to see what pitches they prepare, can't imagine them giving aus the same flat tracks England had (bar 1 test). Think it will be those pitches NZ and SA got

Don't see Warner scoring too many, he's pretty hopeless on slow low pitches. Smith will probably score a few and the rest will be dead wood against Ashwin and Jadeja.

Lyon bowls too slowly hence why the batsmen run and smash him to the moon and back in Asia

I wonder whether this will be the series that sends Lyon back to first class domestic cricket on a permanent basis.

I'll stick my danglies out there and go Aussies to win 2-1, really looking forward to the series. Smith, Starc and Lyon to excel. Mitch Marsh to baffle me on his selection again.

I'll go with a drawn series with one of the new faces to surprise with a great series.

I can't believe anyone can realistically think Australia will be anything other than cannon fodder over there. Our batsmen are flat track bullies, and that is fine at home, however we have been exposed in any conditions where the ball moves about a bit. Remember the shambolic tour of SL? We just don't have enough good players of spin bowling. Smith is fine, Handscomb is a good player of spin, but on made to order dustbowls with 4 left handers in the top 7 (if we go with Warner, Renshaw, S.Marsh, Wade), plus the likes of Starc and Hazlewood being lefties, Ravi Ashwin will have a field day. I can't see anything other than India 4-0.

PS: Add to that like likelihood of a spin attack consisting of Lyon and O'Keefe, it will go to all parts!

It's a slightly optimistic prediction, yes  :D

If Australia do come out of this current series with a draw with the players they have it will be one of the best overseas performances since.....I can remember  :)

Bunsen expected with india playing 3 spinners...smith better hope he wins the toss.
No chance of the aussies drawing this tour given they couldn't even beat a weak sri lanka team.

.....yeah looks a bunsen indeed , but the curator seems to think it's a pacemans paradise!   :) ;)

Geez i hope the Aussies can pull off a miracle . But even with a flogging almost guaranteed I'm still more excited about this series than I have been for any in ages . Can't wait .

I think we are making a mistake if we don't pick our best bowlers and just pick spinners for the sake of it.

You never know, Ashwin might step on a ball and roll his ankle in the pre game warm up...... That could change the outlook of the series.  ;)
