In episode 154 of the 81allout podcast we review the third Test between India and Australia in Indore. On a challenging wicket in Indore – which was subsequently classed as ‘poor’ by the ICC match referee – Australia pulled off a terrific nine-wicket win.
- Did Australia do anything differently in this Test than in the previous two?
- Jadeja’s rare off-Test in recent times
- India’s collapse on the first morning – and all the pitch talk
- Did the pitch rage enough? Was the match referee justified in rating it ‘poor’?
- The problem with variable bounce (as opposed to lateral movement)
- Khawaja v Labuschagne: a contrast against spin
- Nathan Lyon’s masterful spell – from around the wicket, cramping the batters
- Lyon’s evolution as a spinner for Indian conditions – and his battle with Pujara
- Pujara’s half-century in the second innings – and the partnership with Shreyas
