    They settled down well with Dravid and Tendulkar surviving to tea. However a very different session fro the first.

    First: 0/98
    Middle: 2/53

    Should be an enthralling last session today. McGill might see more of the ball. Then the new ball might be taken at around 5:30-6:00. Assuming the tourists last another 27 overs of course.

    i hope Steve does not end his test career as a loser.It would be a sad end for such a great career.

    Steve also ended his one day career as a loser when we lost the tri-series to New Zealand

    India is well placed tonight at 284/3, with Sachin finding ominious form and being just the 4th batsman in history to cross 9000 test runs.

    How badly did we need McGrath and Warne?

    Let us all hope that Lee and Gillespie and Bracken and McGill pull something out tommorrow, for if India is able to bat through the second day, all we can hope for is a draw..

    Steve deserves a win, and winning series to get a fitting farewell. He has never lost a home series in his life as captain

    Just to let you know, Sachin's favourite spinner is Shane Warne

    A win for india would certainly start setting doubts in peoples minds

    from the above

    1. Steve waugh needs to score 368 runs to pass Border and become the all time highest test scorer in history. Very doubtful indeed, although he may score enough runs to become the second ever to cross 11,000 runs.

    I believe that Steve should have said this is his last AUSTRALIAN series, got teh glory and farewell, then went to India and then he could have got the world record and retired in the knowledge that he got the all time world test run scoring record

    2. Sachin is incredible. He just passed 9000 today, and his average at 55 is so much better than all other batsman in the top 10 list, If fit, there is no dount he will get the world test runs record, just like he had smashed the world one day runs record.

    3. Most of the top 10 batman have averages over 50 - except for teh British batman Gooch, Stewart and Gower

    4. Lara is number 5 and charging. His patch of bad form seems to be over for now

    Isn't it interesting. I never would have guessed that India would fire up here in Australia. Usually India lose here badly and Australia lose there badly. Sehwag and Dravid are in spectacular form.

    The two consecutive yorkers from Lee also very impressive. I dont think anyone expected the second one, which was also much faster.

    this is the world test wicket takers in cricket history. Seems to be a battle between our Warnie and Murali for the world record.

    ===============================================
    1. Courtney Walsh - 519 wickets at 57 strike rate
    2. Shane Warne - 491 wickets at 60 strike rate
    3. Muttiah Muralitharan - 485 wickets at 59 strike rate
    4, Kapil Dev - 434 wickets at 63 strike rate
    5. Richard Hadlee - 431 wickets at 50 strike rate
    6. Glen McGrath - 430 wickets at 52 strike rate
    7. Wasim Akram - 414 wickets at 54 strike rate
    8. CEL Ambrose - 405 wickets at 54 strike rate
    9. Ian Botham - 383 wickets at 56 strike rate
    10. Malcolm Marshall - 376 wickets at 46 strike rate

    1. Kumble is currently number 12 all time wickettaker at 370 wickets.

    Waquar Younis has 373 wickets, so if Kumble gets 4 wickets in this match he will be number 11 all time, and if he gets 7 wickets in this match he will beat marshall and be in the top 10 all time bowlers

    2. If warne;s mother did not give him those tablets he would have broken the world record by now. As it is it will be a big battle bwteen Murali and Shane, with the tests in Sri Lanka and Australia determining who gets the world record first

    3. If McGrath was fit he would have been number 4 all time wicket taker, smashing the records of Hadlee and Kapil Dev

    2. Rodney Marsh - 96 tests, 355 dismissals
    3. Alec Stewart - 133 tests, 277 dismissals

    very true

    were it noty for Healey hanging around pasthis use by date, Gilchrist would have been further up the all time wicket keeper records by now

    As it is he will now not reach the record set by Healey

    but then who knows? wicketkeepers have a longer career than batsman or bowlers

    Is that just his keeping ability though, or is it more the ability of that superb pace attack he keeps to (when they're all there) to get edges?

    I don't follow these things closely enough to say, but I got the impression that while Gilchrist's reach helps him to pull in some great catches that other keepers wouldn't touch, he is also more untidy than some of the great keepers listed.

    Of course, when you throw in Gilchrist's batting, he's one of the greatest freak talents the game has ever seen.
