    Anyway, to chess: it's amazing how much interest this current test is generating. I was just over at Town Hall train station and there were people from all walks of life looking at a public TV. For my money, I think Aus will lose bad in this game. And it will be good for world cricket.

    If Australia lose, certainly it will be good for World cricket, though it is too early to write anyone off.

    I think its still going to be interesting.

    Oh ye of little faith...

    This is steve's last match, and the Daily Tele, John Howard and the Packers are all watching with us. We just have to beat the Indians

    as previously noted Steve has never lost a home series in his life, and the last time this happened was 11 years ago with the windies

    OH NO NO

    4 down, and we are now in trouble, as it looks like we need to dig deep to avoid the follow on

    Also if Kumblew is bowling so well now, imagine what he will be like in day 5

    Looks like Waugh has to save us with a miracle

    Australia 342/6 at close of play

    Gilchrist out to Pathan for 6

    We still need 164 runs to avoid follow on , with just the tail enders and katich left.

    Follow on seems the most likely outcome. I wish I was at home ot SCG. for the first session will be so so crucial.

    However even if we avoid the follow on, India will probably bat for 2 sessions and score about 15, and give us about 400 to chase the final day with a dangerous Kumble bowling so well

    Looks like we will be flat out just to salvage a draw now

    good decision by ganguly to bat rather than enforce a follow on

    with kumble with 8 wickets and in such fine form, he will be mighty hard to keep out tomorrow.

    If we win it will be the highest second innings score scored to win - a fitting tribute to Steve waugh if we do.

    short term versus long term averages

    Given that Gillespie averaged 36.7 in the recent series versus Gilchrist's 16.0 will Ponting recognise this and bat Gillespie higher in the order?

    Given the long term average of Gillespie is around 1/4 of Gilchrist's, I don't think so. But they will obvious muck around with Dizzy and Bing's batting order depending on the situation.

    Dizzy the slow and steady defender. Bing the big hitter who doesn't seem to know much about spin.

    Pitty that Steve did not finish his career with a win

    or a hundred

    but at least he did not lose the test series

    Now for the one dayers
