Bats are really struggling. Everybody dismissed cheaply except Marnus, who should have been out 8 times already.

Smith, Labu, and on home soil Warner. One of these three don't score runs, we are stuffed.

What genius thought an opening pair of Matt Wade and Joe Burns was a good idea?

if Paine can ton up would be some feat.

Interested in what this pitch will do day 4 if Aussies can stay in touch

I'd rate that as Paine's best innings in test cricket.

His 60 odd in the UAE to save the game was pretty good, considering everyone else bar Uzi couldn't bat to save themselves

We need to knock these Indians over relatively cheaply.

They have a 62 run lead heading into day 3.

250/300 for a win would be tough.

Agree.

150 would even be tough. But we’d max out much above 250.

I come inside after doing the edges and some yard work to find India are 6/19 with Cummins 4/14 and Hazelwood 2/0. It's not the pitch it's the bowling and fielding. Kohli gone off Cummins caught in the gully by Green for 4.

And with an Indian player retired hurt, that's the innings. All out for 36! Australia need 90 to win!

India innings ends at 9/36. Shami facing Cummins is hit on the inside of the right arm just above the glove and cannot continue. It is his bowling arm too.
