Re: 1st Cricket Test Aust V India
Brilliant start by the aussies, stumps on day 1 had us at 5/316. Brilliant 81 by Katich with the pressure of batting in his injured Captain's spot, and brilliant work by Clarke to be 70odd not out...on debut. Even though I wouldn't have selected him, he has shown so far that he can handle it. He is brilliant against spin and I assume that is where he has scored most of his runs.
Still a long way to go in the test though, but a solid start which we need to consolidate on rather than crumple in the tail.
Don't get me started on that pitch either...bloody terrible looking piece of dirt.
