Australia v India: first Test, day four

SportsCRICKETHEADLINE STORY      India hold nerve to claim brilliant win over Australia

"It won't be any more hard than this is".

Tim Paine and Patrick Cummins made it to Lunch, but after copping a knock to the hand, the Australian skipper departed shortly after trying to dispatch a Bumrah short ball, leaving the Aussies at 7/187.

"Over the five days, we had a number of opportunities to get ahead of the game and failed to".

"The first step was actually going to speak to someone about that and be honest about it - that I was really battling".

Meanwhile, Langer is expecting a fast and bouncy wicket at Perth Stadium to provide plenty for Australia's quicks as they look to level the Test series against India. That's the area where Taylor believes Australia needs to improve. "Had we taken either of those chances, we would have won this Test match, so it's pretty hard to take". They have now won just six times in Australia in more than 70 years.

Langer conceded Australia would be harshly judged if it exhibited over-the-top wicket celebrations like Kohli in the aftermath of the Cape Town ball tampering scandal.

"Given Australia didn't score enough runs in Adelaide, I'd be reluctant to replace a batsman with an all-rounder, although the Perth conditions should suit Marsh's batting". "#TeamIndia never released the pressure", India's batting legend Sachin Tendulkar said on Twitter.

A local shopkeeper told BFM TV that the shooting lasted for about 10 minutes. "Soldiers and police have cordoned off the area". Italian daily La Repubblica reports that he travelled Strasbourg on Sunday to follow the European Parliamentary session.

Australia were bowled out for 235 in their first innings, in reply to India's 250.

In the second innings, the Indian batsmen showed much better resolve as they tried to stitch partnerships. "We need to tighten up".

Australia claimed that Test at the SCG by eight wickets, with the debutant Guest going wicketless. "Whether they've got the bat, ball, in the field, you can't question those four guys' commitment".

Finch had already referred a lbw verdict in the first over of the innings, only avoiding the ignominy of a pair because replays showed Ishant Sharma delivered a no-ball.

Make no mistake, the toss has played a major role in Tests of late. The 28-year-old has also struggled in one-day cricket with returns in 2018 far below his career best. "You're not trying to impress the spectators or trying to be the good boys". "Amazing grit displayed by the Australian lower order, but this is a moment to savour for a long time for India. If you don't have the big weapons than you can't pretend that you have them, and I think respect to Australia that they've accepted the fact that these are the weapons that they have and so we'll play accordingly". They didn't think we'd win but we have a lot of faith particularly in our lower order.

"We played in good spirits".

But in a new era where players can be picked on character over their cover drive, it would have been interesting to see Langer's reaction to James Pattinson's antics in Victoria's Sheffield Shield draw with Western Australia yesterday.
