Those Lynn sixes earlier were lovely.

Giving Krunal a chance in overseas conditions cost India the match. Chahal would have been the better option.

Also, I hate the fact that India do not allocate enough days for the team to acclimatize before starting the tour. Ideally they should have played at least 1 practice T20 before the series.

Their schedule is incredible.  I mean they are well rewarded, but the timing of their tours make it such that their first game is effectively their warm up match.  Should probably be looked at, though I see they've talked about resting players - but that is not going to go down well with the fans who want to see their best team each match.

On Australia, Harris I really like, tidy player, but all his Shield runs came in one game (innings) and Doolan and a couple of others seem to be in better nick generally.  Be interesting to see how he goes.  Lot of left-handers in there.

King Kohli scores unbeaten 61* so ensure India tie the T20 series 1-1, second game was rained off. Kohli was different class, ominous signs ahead of the Test series

Yeah, watched that on a stream, went over trying to stop a ball crossing the rope and struggled to get back to his feet.  Shame as he's in good form and was hoping to see how he'd fare overseas.

For anyone who wants to see the injury, although I'd strongly advise not to https://preview.redd.it/v8vgs5x76d121.jpg?width=607&auto=webp&s=7b1eeb3b22d0dad886317b11c18ea4a44a8fdd4e

Can't see Shaw playing before the third Test tbh, saw an image of him on crutches. Anyway his misfortune is Australia's gain. Rahul played a horrible shot and recently jettisoned Vijay are the only openers left in the squad

Also looks like Handscombe may well leapfrog Head for the number 5 slot

Looks like Rahul and Vijay will open in the first Test, the former with a morale boosting half century in the second innings and the latter a dazzling century. Albeit against a modest attack.

Elsewhere Matthew Renshaw scored a triple century in grade cricket...still he's not from WA so langer won't be impressed
