Allan Border should stick to flogging circulation boosters and less on passing judgement on current test cricketers.

You stop the list at AB, legend. Google AB giving Craig McDermott a spray on the field, it's gold.

People on here are allowed an opinion but former test captains aren't? I doubt there's a more respected opinion in world cricket.

Tired. Let's not forget this is a bloke who didn't win a series for 3 consecutive years. Let's not judge the current players. I think he's hard on Renshaw. I think he should support the guys.

Had very little to work with but revived Aussie cricket whilst averaging over 50 in a golden era of fast bowling, he was a grumpy so and so but I think he has earnt a right to an opinion, especially when he's being paid to give it. I don't like older players that bash modern ones either but he's certainly no Boycott.

As many as we can get, Kohli wiil still be thinking he can chase anything. I would still be nervous of anything under 350 lead.

Seeing Matt Renshaw wretching up on an Indian pitch is not what I want to see while eating my Shreddies today.

Good fight by the Yorkshireman but just shows how confident the Aussies are in the batting if they're not prepared to retire him!

AB was my captain too, when I grew up, but I think he's unreasonable here. I loved AB as a kid but I think he was wrong here.

Don't think can come back now.. it's a lost cause IMHO.

Aussies are making it look a lot easier to bat on this wicket..

As a reasonable Indian fan, I cannot wait for someone to bitch slap 1) everyone that has been over hyping Indian team in last 5-6 months 2) curator for this pitch 3) post match interview  ;) :(

you are almost certainly right .

interesting to read Borders comments about Renshaw being off the field. He is the captain who hammered Jones years ago for being sick on the field

tough bloke Border  :) we should have a 'hardest Aussie' thread
