Middle order includes Tendulkar, Dravid (he should not be an opener), Ganguly & Laxman.

As for the opener, I agree - he should be shipped of to Pakistan!. Chocked just like Harmison did a while back.

Anyway, after 5 days i'm all cricketed out...

Tendulkar is a gun
Ganguly is a great batsmen, fair enough.
Dravid was a great batsman, he's somehow lost it.
Laxman is a great batsman against Australia, an average batsman against anyone else, very strange. Averages 57 against Australia, 40 against the rest.

I'd take the Australian middle order every time.

I watched the whole day, mate.
Tell me one country that wouldn't have done the same.
The only one I wasn't impressed with was Gilly appealing against Dravid.

so you dont think Ponting at first slip didnt know the ball hadnt carried when asked by the umpires. thats the one that sickens me most.

Slow down mate...

The dismissal was sealed when Ponting told the umpire Mark Benson it was out, although television replays were, as usual, not conclusive.
It looked good live and the replay I saw didn't show it hitting the ground.

Yeah, yeah and according to you they were obnoxious when they won the Test in Melb. :S:

Nice chip on your shoulder you've got happening there pal. :p

Care to comment on the insipid performance by the ENGLISH umpire and old Uncle Steve? :clown:

At least our obnoxious players aren't out there racially abusing the opposition, something you've neglected to comment on. Didn't they mention that in the 1 minute highlights package?

Look, we're sorry that we've had the wood on England for a fair while now and that you've had to sit and watch us beat you so many times. Do try to get over it dear, jealousy and bitterness isn't healthy. :)

FTR, the umpiring in this match WAS poo and India were stiff not to at least get a Draw.

BTW, I have a lot of respect for Anil Kumble as both a great cricketer and as an honourable/decent man, but he needs to shut up with the crap he was jibbering on at the press conference about. :clown: :clown: :clown:

Pathetic stuff. :clown:
