50 folk ejected. Soccer violence? How much racism was directed at Indians from Bay 11 12 13 14?

Seems like an evenly poised match..

Hey, India? So your bowling is pretty good and you stopped the Aussies piling on the runs. BIG FUCKING DEAL. Next time, turn up with some batsmen.

Hey, Bangladesh? Please replace yourself with a more worthy opponent for New Zealand.

Hey, New Zealand? The above isn't saying much, and flogging Bangladesh does not count as redemption for that worthless excuse for a Chappell-Hadlee trophy defence.

Andrew Symonds, Adam Gilchrist, et al., eat your hearts out. You've played against Bangladesh before and even you haven't caused the total carnage that Brendan McCullum just did.

80 not out off 28 balls!

The Bangladeshis took 37.5 overs to stagger to their measly 93 all out. Daniel Vettori pretty much just raped them with spin: 5 wickets off 6 overs, 2 of which were maidens, with only 7 runs given away.

And then Brendan McCullum and Jamie How came to the crease. I agree with Cricinfo's report: McCullum must have had a pre-New Year's lunch to attend, because he wasn't wasting time. He so thoroughly hogged the strike that poor How at the other end scored only 7 off 8, outscored by the eight extras! McCullum reached 50 in 19 balls, the fastest by a Kiwi and second fastest ever. Incidentally, he was simply beating his own record: he had previously scored 50 in 20 balls.

The Black Caps achieved victory in just six overs. What total fucking carnage.

It's not the record though. So

Sri Lanka beat Zimbabwe off 4.2 overs, though they were chasing 36.

McCullum goes alright.

Hopefully this pitch gives India a bit, and maybe they actually turn up to bat. However I must say: India's innings' were terrible. Laxman, Ganguly and Tendulkar all played well, but I think their lacklustre scores, Axver, were more due to the fact that Australia bowled incredibly well. Especially on day four.

It'd be nice to see the Windies rise up again.

We need competition

You know what they need to bring back? Australia A. And make them a test team as well. It'd be soo great, and a perfect opportunity for players like David Hussey, Brad Hodge, Di Venuto, Katich, et al.

Or drop golden boy Clarke from the Aussie XI and replace him with the more deserving Hodge..... the biggest travesty in Australian sport

... who the fuck cares? It was still a damn impressive win. You Australians. If you're not doing it, "it's not the record though". Just shove it; you lot haven't played that well against Bangladesh (you've even lost to them!). You're arrogant as all hell when it comes to cricket. Just look at your "we need competition" whine. You do have competition. You just don't respect it; you belittle it. The Australian team is not as good as it thinks it is.

And India categorically lost due to shithouse batsmanship. Yuvraj Singh was a useless opener, Virender Sehwag's omission was a decisive factor, and players like Rahul Dravid who took forever to go nowhere (5 off 66?!) helped nobody.

The 'competition' is there, they're just not 'competitive'.

I have barely watched a minute of any of the test matches this season 'cause I can't be bothered watching a one-sided team (without Hodge) smash what should be tough opposition so convincingly.

Any team that struggles in tests against bowlers like Johnson, Hogg and Clark and batsmen like Clarke and Symonds, is a disgrace, as India were in Melbourne.

So We lost to Bangledesh?Boohoo!

Even so, that series we were clearly more focused on winning (but loosing) the Ashes.....so what.....any team that wins anything is going to drop a few games here and there.....due to lack of respect or not.

Anyways, back to the present.....Well done to Symonds today! Hogg played well also.

Yes, today was interesting. I was jumping when we were 6/134, but then Symonds thought he'd deliver. He and Hogg played very well though. Wish Hogg hadda made a ton. And Lee was good as well.

And intedomine - you very much underestimate Johnson, Clark, Clarke, Symonds and Hogg. Johnson is a terrific bowler, he proved that by being economical as all fuck and picking up vital wickets with clever bowling. Clark is a superb bowler, have a look at this record!!! He averages less than 20!!!!! Hogg will develop, and Clarke is one of our best players of spin, crafty, in superb form and great to watch. Symonds made a ton and adds firepower.

An extremely interesting period of cricket right here, India were going along nicely until Ganguly holed out, and then Yuvraj and Dhoni continued their deplorable form _(can you believe he was almost made captain??) and were dismissed for 12 and 2 each. All of sudden Harbhajan arrives at the crease, the Aussies with their tails up, but Harbhajan has made a 50 in a century partnership with Tendulkar!! Great stuff.

How astonishingly shit are Bangladesh?

I turn over looking forward to some good NZ based test cricket and see Bangladesh are already bowled out.

I didn't expect it to be really good, but fuck me.

They were sort of starting to come along a bit recently as well... they have some talented players. Mohammed Ashraful is a name that comes to mind.

The third day wrapped up here too, with India 50 odd in front!
