I don't think anyone saw that coming.

O'Keefe - Wow. Amazing. What a performance.

Smiths 100 will go down as one of his best ever.

Starcs runs in both innings were crucial.

Woohoo!

333 Run Spanking delivered in 3 days.Loved this Test Match Win.Didn't see much,except for Starc's batting on Thursday Night and us building our lead on Friday Night.

Got Radio updates on India's 1st Innings,then every time I checked cricinfo,a wicket was bound to fall.

Well done to everyone,especially in order,Renshaw,Starc,O'Keefe,Lyon and Smith.

C'mon Aussies!!!!!!

What a win! :!:
If you'd told me beforehand that it would be over inside 3 days I wouldn't have been surprised...

O'Keefe, Smith and Renshaw in particular. =D> =D> =D>

Gee given the response of the spooky la las of a Indian cricket (Kumble & Singh) I'd hate to see what would have happened to the Indians if we had a decent spinner seeing that reckon SOK was average.

Then you have sooks like Ganguly and Gavaskar who had a sook about the pitch and how it favoured Australia, because you know in the lead up to the series everyone thought the Australians were superior players of spin and had the better spin bowlers in their team.

The Indians use of DRS was also so pathetic it was almost Shane Watsonesque.

WTF?? 8 for!!! Is that a typo?
Well, maybe we can and maybe we can't bat on sub-continent pitches, but sheesh, suddenly it seems we love bowling on 'em :)

Great day in Bangalore!

Wouldn't it be great to see some batsmen grind them into submission.

Kohli's last two dismissals are things of beauty.

Well done Lyon - often described as just another pie-chucker, but in a year or two will probably have 300+ test wickets!

Holding their nerve on a slow grinding day - this is what Test Cricket is all about.

Wade needs to go on and make a score tomorrow - give us a decent lead.

Still anyone's game with the Aussies having their nose in front.
My material isn't very good..Oh...and then there's the bladder problem.

Cracking day of cricket yesterday. It was riveting.

If we can get another 100 today we should win the match.

Unfortunately only got another 40, and Starc and h'wood trying too hard early and giving up runs. Need to be tight and let pitch do the work.

Massive moment in the match / Kohli lbw - looked to be bat and pad simultaneously - but umpires call in the end.
Great for us!
