In other news, we await word as to whether the Indian team have put in a complaint about crowd sledging at the Gabba today.

You targeted Shiraj on this forum today, so it's no surprise that some spectators at the Gabba also targeted him. I guess they, like you, were incensed that he made claims of racism in Sydney?

Certain Australians seem to get so triggered by Indian cricket players. I blame Harbajhan Singh and the 2001 series. Prior to this series the Indians had seemed polite, humble sorts. Going about their cricket quietly but getting beaten up continually by the Aussies. Since then they've had a harder edge and given as good as they get. The Aussies hate getting bantered back and very often lose their rag. Its the reason Ellafan and co get so triggered by Kohli and now Siraj.

I didn't "target" him - I gave him some deserved ridicule. "Target" is your word, not mine.

Let's face it, he is a young product of a society that revers it's cricket team like living Gods. Imagine 5 (multi) millionaire cricketers going for a curry, and allowing some poor (compared to them) fan in some far away country to pay for their meal? A team that throws a hissy fit when they arrive at a quarantine lockdown and there is no-one to make their bed? Their sense of over entitlement almost defies description. And apparently they are entitled not to be sledged.

Forget about concepts of scientific 100% proof, and look at the weight of the evidence. The balance of probability here is that Siraj had a precious attack about being sledged and over-egged the pudding when he complained.

Good post. They used to klap South Africa for decades. Under Greame Smith, we developed a hard edge and did not stand back. Result 1. they have become our bunnies and 2. they have resorted to cheating to try and beat us.

It seems like the whole changing and fixing of the team culture was a ruse.

One of the nation’s favourite sons will be reprogrammed today to not walk on the pitch when he’s not batting.

Steve Smith, a popular run machine and part-time wrist-spinner, was criticised earlier this week for walking all over the pitch marks left by Indian batsman Rishabh Pant.

Some in the game, most notably English, Indian and Pakistani greats, were quick to call out Smith with a few even calling him a cheat.

If you think Steve is a cheat, then you can go and get f**ked,” said former Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland.

Mr Sutherland spoke to The Advocate this afternoon from his beach house, where he has his feet up.

“Steve is not a complex individual when it comes to his cricket. He sees the ball, he hits the ball. He was standing on the pitch, visualising what it would’ve been like for Rishabh Pant. Who shouldn’t even have been batting. That whole thing is fucken dodgy if you ask me but whatever,”

“I’ve spoken to Cricket Australia about it today and during the training session today, Steve is going to be reprogrammed to not walk on the pitch when he’s not batting. To my understanding, this whole thing has come about from a bug in the code. It will only take a few minutes to install the patch and we can all get on like nothing happened,”

“Anything else you want to talk about?”

Our reporter indicated there was nothing else and took the opportunity to hang up first.

More to come.

Good cricket being played here. A few chances for Australia but India holding on and playing at a reasonable clip. 55/1 after 19 overs.

Two reasons I think - Aust got 350+ in the first innings; and its absolutely bucketing down.

I do recall in past years in Brisbane a monsoonal afternoon downpour, lasting a short time, and the ground drying in the heat within another hour so the game could restart. This looks heavier and more set in.

I did say before play started India needed quick wickets or they were playing to save the game before they started batting.

Look I get that India win is probably the least likely of the 3 possibilities, but 20-1 odds is not justified. They could easily bat well in their first innings and put a lot of pressure on the Aussies to bat well in the third innings.

India only need a draw to retain their silverware. They have to bat long.
Pitch looks good but the Aussies were applying the blowtorch just prior to tea. 2 runs in about 5-6 overs.
Set up for another great match. :thumbup:

The 3 day weather forecast is drizzle, followed by light rain, followed by patchy rain. The temperature is staying around 30C, and the humidity is 63/77/76%.

The only chance of this match going to a result is if the rain holds off and the humidity causes the rock to move sideways.

What’s the deal with all the positive encouragement from the players every time Lyon bowls the ball. After each ball Tim Paine and one or two others will shout out some encouragement, “good ball Gazza”, “well done Gary”, “nice one Nathan”. It’s not done for any other bowler. Is he known to be a confidence bowler?

You would think weather will need to be a factor for India to escape with a draw. Best case for them, barring something special, they are could be staring at a 100 run deficit if not more with plenty of time remaining.

Everyone but everyone has lauded India for their performance without key players in this series, pathetic is an odd description.
They are still a good chance to take the series if its drawn with the weather expected tomorrow.
