Fantastic effort that after 200 overs in the field. Fair play.

Just needed a couple of englishmen in the batting to stiffen it up a bit ;)

You guys could do with a few of them  ;)

Be interesting to see how the aussies go if they lose the toss. Already spent 200 overs in the field
How many did India spend in the field?

Yep - i'd also back the aussies pace reliant bowling line up to hold up if they lose the toss ;). Easier for the home side given there use to there home conditions, but I'm sure you would disagree

I only disagree with things that are wrong.

Gutsy innings by the Aussies... Haven't seen that from an Aussie team for quite awhile

Hence the expert conservative prediction.

Happy to be proven wrong though :)

My expert opinion is also that the only reason the aussies arent 2 - 0 up is because they didnt open with lion in the second innings last match. Huge let off for india.....

not sure the convicts...erm sorry...the Australians are getting enough credit on this thread, serious effort to bat the day out and keep it at 1-1

so well done........oh this is grating like a jockstrap full of gravel........well d..........o...........n.................e

the Aussies !!!

too far ahead to think about the Ashes but if they are this competitive it's going to be a close series.

To be fair, I'd make them pretty decent favourites in their home conditions - they have a clear advantage in pace firepower, and their batsmen won't be found out. England will be heavily reliant on getting their upper middle order right over the next seven months.

.....Starc and especially Cummins seem to get injured. Cummins has got real pace, he's quick.... Starc is a superb bowler. Hazlewood is ok...

If Starc and Cummins are both fit yes maybe they would favourites...Lyon is abetter spinner than we got......skin the cat any argument you want we just do not have anyone as good as him do we?

agree about our batting.....im not convinced myself we are settled.  Cook yes, Root, of course, Hameed yes(he will get tested) and Bairstow certainties....

is that enough.....I think we need one more 'banker' in the batting order.  :)

I'd take Hazlewood over Jimmy in Oz this winter.

Agreed. I made a point some time ago about England lacking pace which I stand by. And without a quality spinner in the squad I really make Australia strong favorites
