Commentary

India were off the boil today, against an Australia lineup that was red hot. Quite a batting display that was earlier in the day. Hardik put on a show as well later on, but he was fighting against the tide without much support. Could India have taken it a bit more easy against the new ball, rather than going after everything? Probably, but then a target of 370-plus does funny things to the mind. Anyway, that's all from us here. It's a goodbye from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Pradeep Krishnamurthy, MS Ramakrishnan, Nikhil Jadhav and Siva. See you next time!
