But then a 'one-eyed Jackaroo' like you would say that :)

Come to think of it, is a 'one-eyed Jackaroo' a euphemism?

I thought it was a compliment 🤓

If a Sheila compliments you on your 'One eyed Jackaroo', then you are the luckiest raw-prawn in Tittybong!  :D

(Yes it's real - look it up!)

Being India fan, very happy with the win. Some solid batting by Rahul on this pitch. This kid is talented and will get better. Hope he values his wicket more.
Very gripping and exciting game but conditions were horrific. Whether its a seamer friendly or spinner friendly track, it should have consistent bounce. How are you supposed to play a 145 KPH delivery which does not bounce more than 6 inches.
I feel ICC needs to step in and do something about how teams are taking home advantage to extreme. Teams are scoring more runs in ODI than in a test inning. Some might say the new generation cricketers dont have test match temperament but thats not the case. Same guys are scoring double, triple hundreds.
Maybe bilateral series should be played part at home and part away. Or have a neutral curator like neutral umpires. Test cricket is becoming test of how many you win rather than test of real cricketing skills.

These challenging pitches are not a bad things in my opinion. Pitches like these guarantee a result and take away the boring bits of a test match where the pitch is flat and batsmen snooze to fifties and hundreds. I hope all countries prepare pitches which have the home advantage and challenge the visiting oppositions. As we saw in the first test, a pitch favouring the home team doesnt necessarily mean an easy win for the home side. Test cricket desperately needs these challenging pitches.

For those who have written the Aussies off already you are crazy. This isn't the England team who went and played India on very good cricket pitches only to get spanked. This Aussie team has showed some fight this series on some very difficult batting tracks and on a track like those prepared for England this Aussie team would be far better equipped to take on the Indians
Australia played as well as they could in the first Test. Everything worked for them. Second Test Australia played as well as they could for 60% of the match yet ended up getting routed. India have barely gotten out of second gear whereas Australia have needed to play at their best to have a level series

India were pushed to their limit and needed to dig deep to salvage a win in Bangalore. Disagree that India have barely gotten out of second gear.

Kohli has been woeful with the bat thus far and Ashwin hasn't even bowled well yet he's got 13 wickets. When these two find their proper form Australia will be lucky to avoid an innings defeat

Everyone wants to see a result in a test match but the pitch should offer equal competition between bat and ball. A pitch playing uneven from day 2 is not ideal. A spin friendly or pace friendly pitch is completely acceptable as long as it holds a consistent bounce for at least 3-4 days. It also challenges the pace bowlers to develop new skills to bowl on  a spinning track and likewise for spinners on hard pitches. The batsmen will be challenged in either case. No one wants a flat track!!

Jadeja has been the real star with the ball, unbelievable consistency ball after ball giving absolutely nothing away and mounting the pressure.

Yet Australia won't cry about it like India does when it happens in return, biggest hypocrites in world cricket.

Theres a quote there that says Virats onfield behaviour has been exemplary. That must be a joke, hes one of the most petulant players ive seen in international cricket

India in general act like schoolboys when it comes to on field words. Similar thing happened in England when they couldnt wait to tell tales. Keep your mouth shut and what goes on the field stays on the field. Smith was in the wrong of course but was dealt with by the umpire. The continued media tale telling is just child-like

Im not sure why you'd ever want to start a sledging war with Australians in any case. I feel that Pujara might get a word or two back in the next test!

Take it easy folks...It is natural to like/support one team but the environment is much better when there is no hatred towards the other team. Everyone is trying hard to win and sometimes lines may be crossed but that is why umpires, third umpire/ICC are there to make sure the play is within limits. I dont think it is necessary to call either team names in dislike..

At end of the day, as cricket lovers, we like all teams as they compete hard to win and small things like these shouldn't be blown out of proportion...Smith tried something, didnt work out, Kohli and couple indian players made some comments like U-10 game etc later in the press, Aussies said target Kohli with some comparison and so on....that's it,  no harm done to either side.... every one is trying to play some mind games on both sides, ...so what, no big deal...small bit of spiciness is also good for entertainment, its over, move on...If the other team is not playing with our team let's say as we dont like them, would that make us happy? Surely not right...Everyone still wants more games against them as well as against the other top teams...

Sorry but that makes no sense, are you suggesting that because one team displays poor behavior it makes it ok for the opposition? Kohli is a petulant child and his behavior is disgraceful and he has quite a few mates.  India are the great pretender of world cricket, in more ways than one.
