That final hour was pathetic - Paine's an absolutely woeful captain and Starc is by far the most overrated bowler in world cricket..... :shh

I can't recall it working for any team spreading the field and giving the top order batsman easy cheap runs to try and expose the tail ender  :-\.

Our bowlers (once again) didn't bowl at the top of off stump to the tail as they did to India's top order. Too many wasted high and wide deliveries with the new ball.

Handscomb out. Another wicket just thrown away.

We could end up 100 runs behind after the first innings the way this is going today. We're hardly scoring but still losing wickets :help

Aus 5/120.

Make that six down. Paine caught behind for 5.

The tail might as well go the smash like the Indians did yesterday. Trying to survive isn't working as we're not scoring anyway :-\.


Edit: Looks like that's Travis Head's thinking. Two boundaries off the last over.

Aus 6/137
