Then its Paine' head on a plate Im afraid, two test series losses at home is not acceptable.
Border - Taylor - Waugh - Ponting - Clarke - Smith - Paine.

One of those names is not like the others.
Ponting? Only name with more than 6 letters.
I was going to say Ponting but for the reason that as captain he got raped at home in 10/11 losing THREE matches, at least one by an innings...

I still think Australia will win, but this has been very gutsy from the Indian team.

Incredible tour from India.

Pathetic from Australia. Probably their worst tour loss ever.

Paine instant sacking. Entire Cricket Australia setup needs to be destroyed and rebuilt.

Waugh.

The rest are all average captains at best.

A deserved win. First time since 1988 Australia has lost in Brisbane.

They are still slight favourites. The world's best bowling attack, on a 5th day wicket, with a very long Indian tail at a venue where they haven't lost since 1988.

Cummins would probably be a Flintoff captain - keep bowling himself until he's effectively reduced his career by 3 years...

Besides Paine, would Kholi be in trouble too as captain after this?

See you later Paine. Congrats to the Indian B team. Australia only have themselves to blame. Worlds best pace attack on their best pacers wicket yeah....?

Presume Wade's out now. Any love for Head as cap (I'm not strongly for it, just putting it out there...)?

Implications for the Test Championship:
Australia will drop to 69.2 and will need 89 points from the series against South Africa to go past New Zealand. That can only happen if they win at least two Tests and draw the third, in which case they will get 93 points from the series. Had Australia not dropped those four points for slow over-rate in Melbourne, they would have been on 70 even with a defeat. In that case, the runs-per-wicket ratio would have come into play (since teams have played an unequal number of series, the series wins isn't being considered in this cycle); currently, Australia's ratio is 1.42 while New Zealand's is 1.28.

India will move up to 71.67 with a win and will need 80 more points against England to top New Zealand. They can achieve that with a 2-0 series scoreline in the four Tests.

Kurtis Patterson or Alex Carey, who should be in the team ahead of Paine & Wade.

Australian fans, what's the post mortem for your team? Will there be changes for South Africa or do you think the selectors will show faith with the core of this XI? The batsmen struggled at times, but the bowlers also struggled to take 4th innings wickets in the last two tests. Lyon and Starc didn't have their best series and Cameron Green didn't take a wicket for the series.
