India doctor up dodgy spinning pitches and then can't even bat on them themselves lmao.
They really deserve to lose this. They have been far too arrogant in their approach to cricket for the last 20 years.
Lol they have finally decided to use DRS this series but their lack of experience in it's use is hilarious - Kohli review was straight out of the Shane Watson batting manual.`
Congrats to Australia, but I still think the Marsh selections will bite us on the rear end sooner than later - maybe even today.  Smith can't save us every innings.

188 to win with a day and a 2 sessions to bat. Going to be an interesting finish.

Dodgy pitch brings Smith undone. What a joke. There should be something in the pitch for the bowlers, but random luck doesn't qualify. Will be close.

Surely it's time to swap Maxwell for Marsh. Your dad being a former player can't get you picked for ever.

There's a far better batsman than both of them, he's in the touring party, but apparently he can't play spin. Why was he selected for the tour? Short circuit Qld's run at the shield??...seems the only plausible reason at this stage.
And Rod Marsh was roasted for being a selector, -  well new mob are doing a fine job in his stead...lol

I was surprised that he was dropped, but then again I think he's out of form in India. I think Maxwell's experience and achievements there would have put him ahead. Either way, we agree about Marsh.

Mitch Marsh is rapidly approaching Scott Muller status as worst player ever (repeatedly) selected for Australia. Cant bat (for more than 50 balls), can't bowl (or isn't allowed to lol) and whether he can field or not is irrelevant since all players of the modern era must field or be banished.

Australia have been dealt a seismic injury blow with pace spearhead Mitchell Starc ruled out of the remainder of the Qantas Tour of India with a fractured foot.
