WA WIN IN A THRILLER AND THE REDBACKS ARE THROUGH TO THE FINAL AGAINST VICTORIA!!
Can anyone else see Australia losing this test on a 5th day wicket being bowled out in 2 sessions
I sure can
Absolutely mate. I would not be surprised if India storm to an innings victory. Australia did quite well not to wilt completely today, now they need to hang tough with the bat. Sadly, I can't see a way out of it. Like many visiting teams in recent seasons, India have ground our boys into the dust. I think a draw from here would be as unlikely as our win in Pune.
You're welcome...wish it was us though
Good way for Adam Voges to go out though. He'll go down as one of WA's finest. The position we're in now is unrecognisable compared to the one we were in when he took over the captaincy. Thanks Vogesy!
Can I see it happening? Yep, absolutely. Do I think it will? Well, the pitch seems to be playing OK. Depends on how much it breaks up tomorrow I guess. Still, I'll be optimistic and back us in to bat out a draw.
2/23 at stumps can see us folding real bad
Just ground into the dust. No luck with DRS but gees outs boys have hung tough.
I can't see our lefties holding out against Jadeja into those footmarks.
Just like our first innings in the second test I felt we were 40-50 shy of what we needed. When we lose wickets we lose them in clumps. Despite this I will be hoping for some stoic efforts tomorrow!!
I think Australia are better off attacking to try and get a lead , rather than block and be bowled out for 100
Yeah, 2 down at stumps isn't a great start. Warner's really struggled for the majority of this series. Oh well, cricket's a funny game! Let's see what happens tomorrow.
So far, so good! 4 down at tea and trailing by just 3 runs. If Handscomb and Marsh can bat out the first hour of the last session, you'd say we're just about safe.
For a game where we've ended up on the back foot, I'm really proud of what we've achieved so far. This match has been a real test of character, and it's great to see players like Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb show some true Aussie grit. None more than Glenn Maxwell though - he deserves all the praise he gets. The fact that he was the only Aussie player who trained before the ODI on Australia Day also helps
Training is apparently overrated - only Faulkner, Finch, Cartwright and Smith (who had to do media) turned up to the training in Sydney too.
Great work by the Aussies to hang in there so far......
Yeah Maxi only turned up to do media. Smith and Warner turned up to have a look at the pitch and I got smith but Warner was his ever elusive self.
Just proving I give a marsh credit when it's due, that was a great innings by Shaun to see us through to a draw
Handscomb brilliant too - what a time to stand up after a lean series to date.
If kohli wants to be a stoodge and make us bat out, smith should declare with 2 overs to go for test lol
Never in doubt.
Makes for a massive 4th Test!

Reminded me of this!!
Anyone seen these before? Spotted them in my local Reject Shop...
'Bbl surprise ball'
Yes, a waste of bloody money if ever I've seen one mate! The "figure" inside is plastic rubbish and nothing like what is depicted on the front. Additionally, there are about 500 of the bastards to collect! The only "surprise" was that I was silly enough to buy a couple
