36 Runs

Australia bowled over 'the best ever touring India' side today for 36 runs down here in Adelaide in the third innings, before winning by 8 wickets. Australia were down by about 60 runs after the first innings, and chased the final total comfortably.  

Agarwal top scored with 9, Hazlewood took 5-8, no extras were conceded. The inning ended after Shami retired hurt after a brutal bouncer from Cummins got him on the forearm of his bowling arm. 

Kohli is heading home for the birth of his child, so India will face the remaining three Tests without him.

simply astonishing   not that we ever want the Aussies to do well but this is historic    and after the first innings it looked as if India would win !

That's the thing, I thought Australia might be able to drag this one late into day 4, but India were well on top after day 2. Truly bizarre to watch, and it will be fascinating to see how India bounce back from this, particularly losing Kohli.

Indians think their rockstars. They've just been taught a tough lesson. If they thought all they had to do was turn up to win the series based on their last tour, they'd better think again. In Starc, Cummins and Hazlewood Australia have a quick bowling attack absolutely at the top of their game. This will be a long and humbling tour for the Indians, one suspects, especially with Kohli nicking off home.

I have to say this is a fantastic achievement, a piece of history,  something that should never be forgotten...Albert did do a post that was not coronavirus related. 

Historic times.

They played really well under Rahane, looked a different side. Really looking forward to the rest of the series. 

Bumrah looks an all time great in the making. 

Australia will get Pucovski and Warner back for the third test, which should help their batting woes. India have lost Umesh Yadav, however, which is unfortunate.

He was the bad guy in a cartoon I watched as a kids called Thunderpants. I believe it was in a show called Round the Bend. 

I know and care nothing for cricket, but thanks for the memories.

This series is something else at this point. 

Smith has finally hit form, and Australia are 197 runs ahead, with 8 wickets in hand at the start of day 4; Smith and Labuschagne at the crease. 

Gill for India looks good, and Bumrah and Ashwin have had an impressive series. The concern for India is the number of injuries on this tour. Shami (broken arm, hit while batting), Umesh Yadav, Pant (elbow, unclear, hit while batting) and Jadeja (thumb injury, hit while batting) have all been injured now. This is on top of Bhuvi, Ishant and Pandya already being injured. 

Could well be England's tour of India A soon.

Great survival effort by India yesterday, but Paine's come off look like a bit of a git. The frustration got to him, and he shelled a bunch of chances that would have gotten Australia in touching distance.

Pretty remarkable story from India this series, but they're now basically some stars and the backups for the final test at this point. They've lost Jadeja now, which is a massive blow, and likely Vihari and possibly Pant too. Some talk about Ashwin's back too, but let's hope he can play. Bumrah looked very tired in Sydney too, and wasn't at his best. 

Brisbane should be a fascinating contest, and India have a solid chance of coming away with a second series win in Australia.
