So the Aussies have just bundled up India in four days, winning their 15th Test in a row. It looked hard going on the first day, but from there on they looked in control. There was no McGrath, no Warne, no Langer and Ponting did bother the scorers too much. Still the Aussies managed to win by 350 odd runs. It's true India didn't get much practice in Australian conditions before this Test, but I doubt the result would have changed even if this weren't true. It amazes me how much excellent talent there is in Australian Cricket at this time. Lee is twice the bowler he was 18 months ago, more accurate, smarter and getting many more key wickets. Clark has slotted into McGrath's spot very nicely (4 for 28 in the first innings - I'll take that any day of the week). Johnson and Hogg even ended up with a couple in the second innings. Then there is the batting line up. Hayden's 124 was brilliant on a pitch everybody but Jaques struggled on in the first innings. Pontings combined total of 7 for both innings was very much a rarity, his form over the last couple of years has been astonishing. The last twelve months in particular has put him in a class of his own, Hussey in my mind a close second (more so in the ODI's). It was good work by Kumble to take five good wickets in an innings, that helped keep the game alive for that bit longer but still the Aussies won this Test much like they have won the last 14. The way they played this match I felt was a step above their normally high level. Their plans kept on paying off, they played a smart and skillful game. I really hope India can get some more practice in before Sydney, I look forward to seeing the Aussies pushed a little harder. Despite the huge margin it has been great game to follow.
