Big Show in the runs.
From all the sh!t he's been talking abiut being a better batsman, I'm expecting at least a double hundred from Matt Wade....

Maxwell might be having a lone beer with a smug look on his face tonight. He may or may not be a big time Charlie but he batted well in a crucial partnership with Smith.

Once in a while it's nice to prove people wrong I suppose.

Pitch looks like a nice batting track. It would be a shame if Indian batsman don't put a competitive score here.

Maxwell stands between India and the BG trophy. He plays Ashwin and Jadeja in IPL. He seems well versed with their tricks. In some of the shots, he got out of shape but ensured that ball hit the ground before reaching anyone's hands. Uncharacteristic innings but i believe Maxwell is driven to stake his claim in test line up. From the current looks of things he is going to be averaging better than David Warner !

Think the pitch has played pretty well despite looking poor - looks pretty flat.

Maxwell's got the kick up the backside he needed - wade's comments must've motivated him

whether they have or havnt motivated him could be the answer to a bit of a problem for Australia

I think even the aussie fans would conclude neither shaun nor mitch marsh really is the answer in that middle order

Think in the upcoming Ashes series Australia might go with Starc, Hazlewood, Cummins and Pattinson. With Maxwell at 6 as the spin option

Time to complain how flat the pitch is and how boring matches are on roads  :D :D

Difficult to see either side getting 20 wickets now

Nothing wrong with the pitch. Umesh, Jadeja and Cummins showed how to bowl on this surface. India will fancy their chances if they get a lead of 100. Ashwin was subdued in the first innings but on days 4/5 could well be unplayable.

SoK is an honest bowler. No magic or mystery. Bowls a little too slowly compared to Jadeja. Lyon was totally rubbish. Out of his depth when batsmen don't gift him wickets

It is a boring match so far sadly. I wasn't hoping it would TEST the batters rather than simply be a road

hmmm...   well at the risk of getting hit by the forum bus  :)  the only way I can understand that bats  are bigger and generally just huge these days - going on the basis super light(low density?) clefts are in same supply as they were 20 years ago- is that the moisture is taken out of them and the press far less, so this sort of thing will happen more and more

could be wrong of course!  haha

On the plus side, he needs a smaller frame for his 'bat I scored my debut Test hundred' display.

Good on him.

Australia certainly look to have Kohli's number so far this series... Only scoring 46 runs from 5 innings at 9.20 ave
