Angry India proof that Australia are doing well

Australian batsman and team captain Steven Smith is not out 34 at lunch in the opening session of the third Test in Ranchi

We want to finish the last two tests on a positive note. After the pitch for the first Test in Pune was deemed as "poor" by the International Cricket Council (ICC), match referee Chris Broad reported that the surface for the second Test in Bangalore was "below average". The all rounder's spot will be up for grabs and the management will like to take a call after having a look at the wicket tomorrow. "We have two Test matches to play and that's what we need to focus on". To say he's worse than somebody else is unfair as everyone does it, and some blokes do it differently to Kohli.

However Henriques, who has played three Tests in India, said conditions there were a lot harder on the body which tended to pull up more sore because quicks had to bend their backs a lot more on the grassless wickets.

"I've bowled a lot of balls over the summer and it usually happens once or twice a year", Lyon said.

"There was a decent break in between and we certainly don't want to sit and think about one issue all the time".

Keith Wood shares his expectations of Ireland vs England
Ireland continue to insist they will gain no motivation from trying to spoil England's Grand Slam party in Dublin on Saturday. To me the English are quite reserved and they actually struggle quite a bit with success.

"Basically what they said was that they want to see cricket as the victor in the Test ... both teams to play within the rules of the game", he said. The BCCI withdrew the complaint later on the same day after a meeting between the BCCI and Cricket Australia.

However, the two parties later called a truce after a meeting between the officials and made a decision to focus on the next game at Ranchi. I think it's good for everybody that everyone moves on because you'll always have two sides of the coin; one side will say one thing the other side will say another and that just takes the focus away from the game that we all are sitting here because of.

Smith added: "Perhaps, might be able to ask a few questions. So again, it's about adapting to what we're dealt with out in the middle and ensuring that we can be in the contest for a long time", he said.

As the puppy, the kitten and the panda are among internet's favourite animals (also, look at the pictures they have used), it was obvious that people would choose Virat as the "villain" here.

Dutch voters head to the polls Wednesday to select a new prime minister in an election that could send shockwaves across Europe. Far-right movements have taken hold in both countries, which are also set to hold elections this year.

"He's entitled to his opinion, but from my point of view he's completely wrong". Both teams needs to move on from Bangalore and focus should get back on to the series because priority here is cricket.

Smith insisted his "brain fade" on day four was the only instance. "I think he was wrong in his statement".

The southpaw also had a piece of advice to give to Steven Smith and his troops, who are still trying to decode the spin threat posed by ICC's top ranked bowlers Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

For his part, Smith said there was no lingering bitterness in his team over the incident.

While they chose to shoot from others' shoulders they could not even deliver what was asked by the party. The Sarkaria Commission, which studied Centre-state relations in the 1980s, held a similar view.

Meanwhile, JSCA secretary Debashis Chakraborty was hopeful that the Ranchi pitch would last the full five days in its debut Test match. That is how the pitches were so far in the series but surprisingly the Indian batsmen looked tentative. "If I was an Australian, I would be wary of a backlash, maybe in Ranchi, maybe in Dharamsala, maybe in both places", he wrote on the cricketcountry website. Match referees usually meet both skippers at the start of the series but rarely during one.
