That was painful to watch. The pitch became much more livelier than the Indian batsmen expected. The Aussie bowlers excellently took advantage of the conditions.

This tour can only go one of two ways for India now. A wake up call and a bit of fight or complete subjugation and defeat.

I hope Shammi is ok and fit to continue the tour.

With lockdown they'll all be delivered early, so we'll be fine. I would make a pun about rabbits but given the Indian batting that might not be appreciated! As long as Wood and Archer are there it's going to be rather enjoyable; especially if Stokes continues his fine form. Wouldn't want to be a batsman on either side really.

Hey HYS where is the other thread gone from yesterday we were all chatting on this morning.

Anyway Aussie quickies made quick work or shuttling India out so perhaps that's why we are taking 6 Strike bowlers to Sri Lanka ready for the India tour.

Kholi out of the equation now how will India perform.

Aussies be fired up now for sure maybe a whitewash coming up.

What I did notice is that of the seven batsmen caught behind the wicket (5 easy catches for Paine), watching the ball through the air from the bowler, on every one the seam was just perfectly upright. Ideally set up for swing and movement off the wicket.

That was exceptional bowling. Seam upright, pitched up, good pace, perfect line.

Nindy - India have got a terrible record in test matches, which stretches back to the 1940s. They’ve had the occasional half decent player, but they really struggle to get a proper team out nowadays. England on the other hand have a long glorious history in this form of the game. It’s ok to make silly comments, but the truth is that India are rubbish.

Cricket isn’t taken seriously in India any more. It’s a pity, but they’ve been on a downward spiral for years now. Australia are a fairly useless team, and they’ve blown India away. Other sports are taking over in the sub-continent, and many of the old cricket outages have been built on. Very sad.

The old adage "bowlers win matches" remains true and Australia has the best bowling attack around. If they could find another leg spinner only half as good as Warne, they could have a dynasty in the making.

Starc, Cummins and Hazelwood are all world class, this can happen when the right conditions come along.

That said, it’s nice to see this Indian side come unstuck so spectacularly.

Kohli often comes across as an ungracious leader of a side many of whom seem to be wannabe rock stars but only end up looking a tad silly.

Nindy - India have got a terrible record in test matches, which stretches back to the 1940s. They’ve had the occasional half decent player, but they really struggle to get a proper team out nowadays. England on the other hand have a long glorious history in this form of the game. It’s ok to make silly comments, but the truth is that India are rubbish.

India probably won't agree to any more pink ball day/night test matches after this rout, even if it didn't have anything to do with the ball moving around too much at night. Just high quality bowling. 11 of the 36 runs came off the edge, so it could have been even worse.

The cricket school of hard knocks. India were travelling well at 1 for 15, building an innings. Then they collapsed to 5 for 15, staged a mini recovery, then collapsed again to be 8 for 26. Alas, for poor NZ (hoping to at least share the lowest ever score) , some late order hitting got India to 9 for 36, where a Shami hit ended the innings. It's based on relativity.

The Indian batting was very poor. No excuses, but I think pink ball cricket is not good. I have been looking at the test scores of teams in pink ball tests. Scores have been very low. With the ball zipping about on difficult pitches it is nigh on impossible for batsmen to get in. Test cricket will die if series continue to be too one sided with no adequate preparation for touring teams.

The preparation comes down to that Touring Nation to sort out in planning and practice matches set up.

This is where England fail so many times before not getting their heads screwed on. Hopefully now with the New Management and the desire for Red Ball Cricket it will happen.

Pink ball or day/night is here to stay as well so another format to adapt too.
