comment on the article

Tim Paine has really been impressive.He has shown great composure at the crease and really good technique.I was one of those calling for Haddin to come straight back in but now i think Paine should keep his spot.One weakness Haddin has he has failed quite abit under pressure.The little oppportunity Paine has had he's done excellent under pressure.Usually Haddin would come straight back in but i think its now a very difficult choice for the selectors.Not to mention Paine's the better keeper.What do you guys think, Paine or Haddin and why?

Haddin the better batter, I meant to say.

Why not have both paine and haddin in the side at the expense of North?

Frustrating as his failures are, especially at times when a partnership is really needed, without his 120 the first innings score would have looked pretty miserable.

I'd imagine they'd go for both Paine & Haddin at the expense of Hauritz. Sure Paine bowling with those pads & keeping gloves on won't be any worse spinner than Hauritz. A spinner not making use of Indian wickets is a sin really.

What a series to witness. To say "I was there to see Ponting and Tendulkar". Amazing.

Yes it's been a great series, but Australia look like they are going to get pipped at the post again. Leaving it all to their bowlers even in the batting department. I think it all comes down to Ponting. He's done OK, but you have to do "great" to win in India.
Looking forward to the next 4 match series in OZ.

thewaughtwins, Australia haven't lost it yet, on this pitch and knowing India's tendency to auto destruct in fourth innings, if Aus add another 40-60 runs they might be able to put pressure on the Indian batting line up.

Australia are far from out of the match

10 dulkar to try for No. 50, if possible?

Both should be in paine at 7 and haddin as a batter at 6 as he is more reliable than north
