Thank you very much G-Unit. And thank you also to Hardik Pandya and Ravi Jadeja for poppin’ them thangs over the boundary at the death to set up a competitive total. Australia now have a brisk jog on their hands, rather than the stroll it looked like being before that late assault.

Australia must chase 303 to win

What a partnership to finish that innings. It ended up at 150 from 108 balls, unbeaten.

86 runs in the last six overs.

Sean Abbott finishes with 1 for 84, where after eight overs he had 1 for 46.

India had no right to get anywhere near 300. They didn’t pass 200 until the 42nd over. They were trudging along, too many dots, singles here and there.

But what a display that was from Pandya, who batted so well last Friday as well, and late in the piece from Jadeja. It wasn’t power-game striking like we see from some IPL teams, it was intelligent boundary hunting, working the angles to their advantage.

A strange old innings. The three Australian spinners all went at less than 5 and half runs per over. Then the two main quicks got battered at the end. Hazlewood 1 for 66 despite bowling well most of the day. In the end you’d say he actually limited the damage during that late flurry.

Well, it’s been fun. I’ll be on my way, and for the chase I will leave you in the hands of the lovely Jonathan Pugh Howcroft.
