And as I said on day 1 Lyon is rubbish. Got gifted 8 wickets but when the match was there to be won in the Indian second innings, he reverted back to his useless self.

I believe it was Starc that let this game slip... going at almost 5 an over... Lyon was economical which helped Hazlewood take 6 scalps

Missed the grit shown by marsh & Renshaw this time to make a match out of it....Much better captaincy by Kohli this innings though.

For the send offs, This character Smith does get under your skin with his acts , never ending chirping and out of this world batting technique he has . :)
Mild compared to Kholi though.

Could it simply be a series of win toss, win game?

Although, I am sure same was been said of the England series, lol

Conditions were harder on day 1 according to rahul given the dampness. Ball bounced and gripped more

Knew we would struggle chasing much over 100. Anyone catch Smith looking to the sheds for help with review? Glad umpires jumped on it straight away, thought Kholi's aggression towards the umpires over it was pretty ordinary too.

Think handscombe was to blame from the video, he was encouring smith to look at the changing rooms

Good work by the umpires there, on it straight away with both the review and having a word with virat otherwise pretty poor from both sides.

Horrible ball to get mind not making it into the picture after its pitched.

Pretty poor from Smith after the game trying to blame it on a junior player, clearly wasn't an idea Smith was surprised by. Wonder if it'll go further.

Always difficult when it's Australia vs India, figuring out who you want to win is like trying to decide who you're rooting for in a fight to the death between Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell ;)

In Lyon's 60 odd Test career he's only ever taken two 5fers in the second innings whether it be the third or fourth innings of the match.

7/152 against India at Adelaide afar India tried to chase down nearly 400 on the last day. Of the 7 wickets most where slogs caught on the boundary

5/50 against England at the MCG. Where we merrilyslog him up in the air.

Lyon has zero talent to actually get good players out. Merely relies on them slogging him up in the air

India also showed that SoK is hardly the next Bishen Bedi...

Respect for Smith and Handscomb reduced a little after seeing how they tried to use Dressing room for DRS.  It is not rocket science, if it was allowed, everyone will use it, not sure how Aussies were thinking they would get away with such open deviation..Good to see Nigel Long come hard at Smith and intervening...now wonder how many times earlier they have used it when in the field particularly when facing the dressing room direction already, would be hard to check in such cases when the player is wearing sunglasses lol..

That's exactly what I thought. Virat reckons he spoke to the umpires at least twice before that incident about it, so I suspect this tactic was probably a prearranged thing. Smith has sold his 'mate' down the river by suggesting Handscombe told him to do it.
