In the last rounds of Shield matches where the red Dukes ball was used, bowlers, particulary fast bowlers, ,have dominated.
In the VIC v NSW, spin bowlers took 8 wickets, fast bowlers 32.
No centuries, highest score of 50.
QLD v SOA, , spin did a little better where they got ten wickets, the rest to fas bowlers.
And the highest score was 42.

In the WA v TAS game, its the batsmen who fared a little better.
4 scores over 50 in the three innings so far.

Hopefully the players in the ODI series get a bit of experience with the dreaded Dukes before hitting England.

Can't wait to see the Al Jazeera underground report on how the Aussies fixed these matches by playing really well .

"Kohli will be seething !!!"

But a lot of bookies, not so much.

On the face of it, yeah, a famous victory by an understrength Aussie side against a powerful opposition at home, but unfortunately spot and game fixing in international cricket is a thing.

A most unlikely series win B .......... but very sweet for the Aussies. The bowlers were very good ( who's our bowling coach now?), and Usman had a truly outstanding series.

Kohli will be seething !!!

We should have a pretty competitive side when up to full strength . Will be interesting to see who makes a full strength team, with a couple of very disappointed players no doubt.

Cheers

And we've come back from 0-2 down to win 3-2 in India. Amazing! It has been a long time coming.

Even worse when we were 2 for bugger all. A remarkable comeback to win from that. Finch is not going well but he did get a pretty good ball. Usman looks so good when playing well. It all looks so easy.

As for Turner not playing, I think selectors have a boner for having that explosive all rounder that Stoinis can be. Turner has looked pretty good in the t20 comp. Player of the match too over century makers from both teams.

India did drop a few easy catches, which is unusual these days. Their out fielding has improved so much over the years.

Beating India at home at any time is quite a feat. Winning a series without Warner and Smith would be amazing.

Must admit that seeing India 1 for 200 I gave the Aussies no hope. Very happy surprise this morning. Turner looks good ...... wonder why he didn't play the previous two games?
Usman has found his mojo and scores pretty much at a run a ball, which helps his batting partners no end.
Finch is a problem with one decent score in a series of failures. Maxwell is always a worry for the opposition, and has scored pretty consistently.
Marsh hasn't done anything, but then he doesn't have to.
Cummins has been brilliant, with 4, 3, and 5 wickets in his last three games.

Last match of the series will be interesting.

Cheers
J

That was an astonishing chase by the Aussies. Usman, Hanscomb, Turner all getting amongst the runs. India 9-358. Australia 6-359. I think that is a record for a chase by Australia.

2 all now.

Good win by Oz last night.
Kawaja played very well.
Finch finally comes good.
Marsh didn’t.
Lucky Maxwell had another quick fire cameo.
Zampa and Lyon bowled better than Indian spinners.
Richardson and Cummins outstanding.
interesting outcome from the review by Finch to his LBW.
Given that the ball tracking was way off beam, having the ball pitch around leg stump when it obviously pitched midlle to off stump, showed there are still glitches.
I would have thought that given the obvious uncertainty, Oz should not hve lost their one review because of it.At best the off field ump could call was on field umpire call.
Might have saved Hanscombe later on.

Langer's Luvvies are looked after.
