The weather forecast is for rain right thru the match. Depending on pitch the chance for a draw are probably over 50%

Now they pick the line up they should have picked in Perth... like Kohli's field placing always following the ball... not proactive...

Here we needed to pick Pandya instead of Rohit... Pandya played a FULL Ranji match without problem in Mumbai...73* in one inning with bat and 7 wickets at 14 odd... with a 5 for... why is he not straight into the team? Even if he bowls only 10 overs a day... still a wicket taking option compared to rank part timer Kohli and Rohit...

Melbourne last time was a bowlers graveyard... so of course they pick only 4... Aussies meanwhile bring back Mitch Marsh to shoulder 5th bowler role...

So it seems Vihari and Agarwal will open. So much to protect Rohit. Don't know what the fixation is with Rohit Sharma.

But there is uneven bounce. Some of the deliveries hit batsmen.

Yes when the bounce is even and low... that is a bigger problem... especially for batsmen who don't know how to sway out of the way... Sunny G. or Gundappa V. even on such wickets never got hit on head...

India go up 2-1 at the G... brilliant team effort... Century by Pujara... 9 wicket haul by Bumrah...

Lyon goes 1-150 in this match after taking 8-106 at Perth. Jadeja meanwhile picks up 5-127 at MCG... following 7 wickets at The Oval...Who says Indian spinners can't be effective outside India?
