    Only 25 overs possible on day four. Day five will start earlier than normal as India chase 10 wickets, can the weather save Australia?

      It probably will because the umpires are interpreting the playing conditions in Dickie Bird style.

        I thought of you as I was posting DD. Kohli came across as a genuinely nice guy. I even got to shake hands with him without him dragging me over the fence and kicking seven types of sh*t out of me which is what the media version of Kohli would have done. Btw, was in Calcutta for the India v West indies T20 back in November - now *that* was a dream come true - India at Eden Gardens...

            Three series defeats in a row for Australia, too. They need a bit of redemption when hosting the Warne-Murali two Test series in a few weeks' time.

            I know we all love seeing this trophy and don't find it at all creepy, so here it is again.

              Sri Lanka are extremely weak currently so I would back even a weak Australia at home. I'm not sure I'd back Aus to beat any of the teams in the top six though (SA, England, Pakistan, India, NZ) even at home so I think Australia minus Smith are current world #6 at best.

                Great to see Dhoni rolling back the years to win the ODI series. Bad luck Australia.

                  Yeah, I almost didn't spot the sarcasm there. *snork*
