India will need 70 to win

Australia’s lead ends up at 69 runs. Not so nice. India have turned this series around, and now only need to finish off their work. Australia could still create some nerves with two or three early wickets, but given the tailenders looked relatively comfortable batting out there, it should be fine. The roller is on the wicket, the lunch break is taken, and India’s batsmen will emerge in 40 minutes to try to level this series 1-1.

That’s the end of my time with you for this Test match. I’ll see you for the third, be it in Melbourne or Sydney or the Whitsunday Islands. For the fourth and final innings, and whatever twists it may bring, I will leave you with the lovely Jonathan Parfait Howcroft.

If you want something to keep you entertained during the break, I may be biased but I’d recommend this conversation with commentator Jim Maxwell about his life in cricket.

Preamble

The time has come: it is Day Four. El Día Quatro, como se dice en español. On the third day will come a frost, but on the fourth day it will be cool but quite pleasant. Sunny and a high of 22. We have seen many great fourth days in Test cricket. This could be one of them. The increasingly embattled home Australian team has a lead of 2 runs with four wickets in hand, with a giant kid batsman in his second match due to resume with the first of his team’s bowlers. The depleted Indian bowling has done a fine job thus far. So we have three possible scenarios.

  1. Australia get bowled out expeditiously and India knock off a small chase to complete a stirring comeback in the series
  2. Australia summon batting resistance to build a winning lead and complete a stirring comeback in the match
  3. Australia summon batting resistance to build a big lead and somehow India chase it anyway in a doubly stirring finale

So much stirring that we should be making risotto. I guess what I’m saying is, we can’t lose, watching on. Today should be memorable whichever direction it goes. Where that is, and how we’ll get there, is the point of watching. Or reading, in your case. Let’s shall? Take my hand, I’m a stranger in paradise.
