The final test of the summer starts tmoz.

I reckon if India win the toss they are a big chance of knocking the Aussies off. Forecast is for the temps to rise over the week, so the pitch will suit the spinners more as the test goes on.

I am still to be convinced our batting line up can perform under pressure, especially chasing, our middle order/tail can't rescue us all the time.

For those who like a punt, this may well be another test which allows the opportunity to back each of the three results and still come out in front. 13 of the last 15 tests the Aussies have played have presented the opportunity to bet live with no chance of losing.

I hope we win, and I hope Warner makes a double ton and sticks his bat up Kholi's….

It amazes me that when we win we get called "Ugly Aussies", but when opposing teams cary on like knob heads it doesn't even get a mention.

I recall a couple of years ago one Harbarjan Singh taking a wicket at the SCG and running around the infield with his arms stretched out like a jumbo jet for what seemed like an eternity. If that was Brett Lee, Johnson or Ponting, the media would have been all over it.

I sometimes wonder which side the media is on is this country when it comes to cricket.

I love the commentary in the big bash, better than the standard thrown up on channel 9

Who would predict Brett Lee being hit for so many in two consecutive overs. Unlucky in the first with the edged 4 but just great batting in the super over.

And then the stars take that catch.

Apparently I don't want to watch Adelaide beat Perth tonight. Or so Channel 10 believes with not putting it on until 6.30 even though they're 9 overs in already....

Don't give up on them, they are probably about 20 runs short, but I reckon this pitch will get a bit slower yet and you guys have some good spinners

Will they cut to the late night news to save you from watching the end as well?

I'm a Thunder fan, but I like the balance of the Perth team, I reckon they'll go close to winning BB4.

Haha shouldn't do. We just finished the 5th over here so I'm watching a text version on an iPhone App lol.

Probably... I'd still rather they win though :laughing-rolling:
It'll be good to compress the table a bit more though!!
