Ind Vs Aus – I Test – Day 3

It was quite disappointing to see a master of the game falling to a trap of a seasoned campaigner. Mitchell Johnson had just served out a couple of slower balls, up fuller length, to Sachin Tendulkar and he should have sensed the obvious. Johnson unleashed another one in 105ks, to have Tendulkar repeat the same error in judgment and was caught at cover.

Dravid battled well for his half century and Ganguly stood one end for important lower order partnerships. It was more heartening to see the lower order batsmen taking attack to the opposition and scoring at every possible opportunity. Harbhajan scored his third consecutive 50 in as many matches against Australia and is remaining the thorn in the Aussies head. Zaheer was spirited in his 35 valuable runs and out there with his partner doing more damage to the Aussies 1st innings lead. Every run scored tomorrow will make Australia grow in frustration and would account a lot for Indians final day batting.

Wish India add another 30-40 invaluable runs to the score board and make a close match out of it!
