Tbh the Gabba record was overplayed. I feel that a significant contributing factor to Australia's excellent record at the Gabba is that it has historically been the first test of the series, and the Australians have benefited from playing touring teams that were yet to grow accustomed to the bouncy Aussie conditions. This series the Brisbane test was the 4th match and the Indians had become used to the conditions.

Dont gamble Nonny
Your obsession with my bets and pretending that I've had a losing bet when I've not even had a bet is a bit unique but quite funny. If I have a bet on your teams games I always say so at the time so I can't be accused of making it up knowing the result. This being the case it must hurt you knowing that on declared bets I'M WINNING.

Carry on slagging off the Indian team and expecting a conclusive result to the racism accusation :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Thats a strong response Nonny, you OK?
Where did I slag the Indian team?
Quote it and Ill flounce forever, I haven't and you and your split personalities...as much as that would cut the board in half flounce

Excellent point AC that I wholeheartedly agree with. I never understood the rationale behind CA messing with the test schedule

Well done to India. Some key partnerships in this series has shown they have some real spine.
That partnership that held us out last test. The 6th wicket partnership in this test that took them from trailing by 150 to only trailing by 36. And then the aggressive batting today.
Not to mention their bowlers standing up after some significant injury.

We were too loyal to out of form players. What did Wade add to this series? And sitting on Burns, out of form even before the series started, getting two tests.
And I am not convinced that batting all rounders exist. Green didn’t achieve much at all. It would have been better to go for a batting specialist.
And our bowlers seemed out of ideas.

Well done India! Thought they were the deserved winners, been the better side throughout the series. Their siege mentality, playing the racist card, using the underdog status and 'everything is going against us' (injuries, quarantine, shit Aussie food) shows they are smart as well as resilient.

Been some great finds as well, shows they have great depth and Kohli while he will be missed, there are plenty of great options.

The Aussie pace attack, while lauded, looked toothless as well as clueless. Batting piss poor, maybe a symptom of too much whiteball cricket and dependence on old hands who haven't performed. Too many times we have gone back to one horse tricks who have a track record of failing miserably at this level, Burns, Wade, Head, Mitch Marsh. Don't have battlers who will grind it out and then kick on with it, Ponting, Waugh, Border, Hayden etc.

Anyway great series, thoroughly enjoyed the Indians character and fight, they will be a test force for years to come.

Not as glorious as Headingley 2019 but it’s up there.
Its better as India did it away from home in Australia at a ground the home team haven't lost at since 1988.
Would be fantastic for indian supporters but Headingly kills it as i had skin in the game. plus the England win was never favourite. India had this from some way out
As a neutral, Headingley was another story, England had a mountain to climb in the last day, everybody though Aussie should have won, the only matter was how long England could resist before crumbling, they had only 6 wickets (if I remember well) in hand with 3 sessions looming.

Today everybody wrote "everything is possible", more chanches of an Aus win or draw but it wasn't as tragic for India as for England back then.

To this date, I have never felt so exhausted after watching a match in ANY sport as that one.
It's a shame that nobody knows about cricket here in Italy, nobody can understand what Stokes did.

Aussies problem is Mitchell Starc. He was such a threat previously he made Hazelwood and Cummins look better than they are. Bowling like he is the whole Aussie attack looks toothless. Unless he can find some form or another contender for Worlds most lethal bowler emerges from Aussie domestic cricket they are going to struggle.

Shit another few home series like this and NZ cricket will be getting invites across the Tasman every season.

Struggle? Hyperbole much its India, they are streets ahead of the rest with twice the depth. England are about to find out.
Every team would find that pace attack here a handful. Starc is injured/out of form. They need to regroup. Its the batting that is the worry.

Truly fantastic win for India. Up there with the Laxman-led victory after following on against Waugh's Australia in 2001 (at home, but against probably the 1st= greatest side in the history of cricket who were on a run of 16 straight wins), including for the captaincy to go for the win rather than settle for a draw. Great stuff, no matter what one thinks of the sides involved (India do not normally get too many positive character references here).

And as a series, that has to be one of the all-time goodies. Humiliating collapse and defeat, followed by avenging wins and backs-against-the-wall displays for a draw and historic run-chase at the enemy fortress, all while dealing with injuries legion and a change in leadership.

Some selection headaches coming up for India - how do you drop heroes? Most of all for the captaincy: is it a coincidence that India have responded so resolutely with Rahane in charge rather than Kohli? Several pundits had been pushing for the change anyway as Rahane's teams in the IPL made more of themselves than Kohli's. Kohli could still be the Bollywood superstar without being skipper; Tendulkar managed it, but the success of Dhoni being superman has perhaps tempted India into seeking a similar style of skipper when maybe they would be better suited otherwise.

I think changing the skipper because of the series result would be stupid. Virat may have been on maternity leave when the team performed at its best, but his leadership is stamped all over this team. Rahane did brilliantly this tour, but I think dropping Virat as captain because of India's success would be foolish.

It's not just from this series. His captaincy has been questioned on & off for a couple of years at least. It certainly was when India were last over in England.

One thing I couldn't believe the commentators (especially Warne) keep harping on about Cameron Green being the future star of Australian Cricket. He's not a bad batter but his bowling is shite

Cameron Green:
Bowling - 4 Matches 44 Overs 0/118
Batting - 7 Innings 236 @ 33.71

Kyle Jamieson:
Bowling - 6 Matches 200 Overs 36/478
Batting - 6 Innings 226 @ 56.50

Going to be very tough cheering on the Saffas. :lol:

Think a series cancellation guarantees the Crappers a place at Lords (if that isn't itself cancelled)? As only one of England or India could get in based on the result of their series and Oz currently sits just behind NZ.

Otherwise Oz need 2 wins and a draw or better?

Edit: looks like it https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/cricket/b ... ampionship

Not sure what would happen if Oz won the first game of the SA tour and then it was cancelled, but pretty sure that would also be enough for them to get in.

Won what? It certainly wasn't the rugby.

Congrats to India, thought the Aussies were going to rip it up on day 5.

Aussies off to South Africa next, they may need to hunt out the Saffa team, Country is notorious for not showing up for fixations against strong opponents. For Yer Man, I am talking about the lack of Saffas in Sup 15 or RC rugby just in case you are confused

:lol: in your head at all times
Dont gamble Nonny
Your obsession with my bets and pretending that I've had a losing bet when I've not even had a bet is a bit unique but quite funny. If I have a bet on your teams games I always say so at the time so I can't be accused of making it up knowing the result. This being the case it must hurt you knowing that on declared bets I'M WINNING.

Carry on slagging off the Indian team and expecting a conclusive result to the racism accusation :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Thats a strong response Nonny, you OK?
Where did I slag the Indian team?
Quote it and Ill flounce forever, I haven't and you and your split personalities...as much as that would cut the board in half flounce
Anonymous modus operandi. When in doubt or difficulty, throw out the racism accusation. Works a charm every time. Its like the joker in his pack.

Ireland won at Eden Park in 2011.
Yes they did and shared a few stubbies with their fans on footpath afterwards. A great win and a great night. Thank Ireland for carrying on the fortress legacy 👍
