Well gents I shall be supporting England full on. From my playing days I can vouch there's nothing quite like shoving it up an Aussie - metaphorically of course. Ermm

Decisions like that could cost us a series and, in my opinion, are unacceptable. 

I'm not a big cricket person, support Mumbai Indians in the IPL and Australia at international level ...I'm looking forward to the summer and will be posting on here wearing my yellow and green shirt Wink

Touch of arrogance in that call nz made them pay for it. Good win for aus in india lyon under rated bowler but heading for 500test wickets

I think we may be seeing the emergence of the greatest batsman England have ever produced. Harry Brook today 184 not out with 24 fours & 5 sixes. I appreciate that it is early days in his career but what a start he has made. The Aussies will be casting a few glances at this England team at the moment.

Did you read about the dodgy pitch preparation where the watering was everywhere but where left arm spinners would pitch? Michael Vaughan was probably the most outspoken of the pundit quotes I read. The Aussies pundits were quite good at highlighting the (seeming) malpractice in a diplomatic manner akin to a declaration bowler delivery to a big hitter.

Yes nothing that unusual when playing in India. when you've got World Class spinners makes a lot of sense. 
I get the preparation of the whole pitch to suit your attack, however, to be so specific as this instance was takes it too far imo. AUstralia have stacks of left-handed batters and it was in this area that the targeting was carried out. India had one left-handed (scored a century iirc), while Aussies had about 6.

Ashwin is a top bowler & takes wickets on all surfaces. With the ball spinning sideways he's a lefties nightmare.

Hone advantage in cricket is now way too much of a thing. For me you should have neutral ground staff to ensure all wickets of a even standard. India are nigh on impossible beat in india at the moment, tests over inside 3 days doesn’t make for a good watch though
