Roebuck’s article for today

Both of them looking more assured now. Initial honours to the aussies. Lets see if the Indians crawl back.

Roebuck has been a machine. have read all his articles over the last 10 days. He has been churning them out.

When I linked it I was 99.9% sure you had probably already read it.

India need a wicket or two before lunch.

Singh in early. Let me know if he gets much turn and/or drift

Uneventful first over. One turned slightly. Lot of bounce though, which is good.

Roebuck was not impressed at all. Thought he didn’t look fluent. Which means he’ll get 3 wickets before lunch

He has been bowling more regularly of late. medium pace,  has a tendency to move the ball both ways. Got a Mark Waughish golden arm.

Cool.

Mark Waugh used to always coax a wicket after a good partnership. Nice memory

Sounds like hayden is trying to kill the ball

16.6   Ganguly to Hayden, 3 runs, down the track, mistimed but gets away with the lofted flick of a pull over midwicket

radio had me thinking he smashed that and it should have gone for 4.

They also only just mentioned the 2001 series…What took them so long??

Another gamble that didn’t work. Theme of the morning. Time to take him off.

My cousin who loves cricket but hates Australia is going mad.

He says Jacques played and missed 8 times. he’s convinced we’ll score 600.

8 is an understatement. They gonna score tons, as the wicket seems to be flattening out. Its upto our spinners now. A selection which I liked by the way. Play to your strengths.

19.1   Harbhajan Singh to Jaques, FOUR, howler of a misfield from Ganguly, who lets the ball nutmeg him after Jaques’s sweep. No excuses and Harbhajan is, rightly, furious

Nah, you missed a beautiful nutmeg which Ganguly inflicted on himself, and some flat bowling by Harbhajan.

EDIT : you found it yourself :)

We use a different term - too rude to say here…

is Kumble gonna bowl before lunch??

Seems like years ago when Harb. Singh was awesome. I still think about the 2001 series all the time. Much like the 2003 ALCS. Weird
