As expected, the Australians have put up a very good score. Australia all out for 478, with Bhajji taking 4 and Ojha 3 wickets. The pacers haven't been effective. Sree stil making same old mistakes of not pitching the ball in right areas and to right length. He may prove to be a weak link in second innings too.
Marcus North hit a superb century. Question for the Aussie supporters, why North is useless and Watson irreplaceable when they have quite similar stats?? North has in fact scored centuries against almost all oppositions, especially away.
Its been pleasant to see some fresh Indian legs moving quickly in the field and taking some very good catches and superb runouts.
Indian batting about to begin. Big occasion for Pujara and even for Vijay. Those 2 along with Raina hopefully get some good time in the middle. Sehwag almost seems out of form as he hasn't hit a big score yet. So a good score by him is expected by all.
I think Australians will manage a first innings lead and then go for another good score in second innings. The Aussie pacers will no doubt make this wicket look a lot better than what Indians made it look like.
Let's see what happens.
