Match Notes

  • Bizarre end to forgettable match

    From the moment that Tasmania rested Ricky Ponting and India left out five key players of its own, it was probably inevitable that the tour match between the sides would not develop into one of the more attractive games of this Australian summer

  • Tasmania put depleted Indian attack to the sword

    The Tasmanian batsmen thrashed the depleted Indian attack on the third day of the tourists' game at Hobart on Sunday to give their team a lead of 156 runs with six first innings wickets intact

  • Indian bowlers make little impression

    A make shift Indian bowling line up, bereft of two leading bowlers in Javagal Srinath and Anil Kumble as well as the in form Ajit Agarkar made little impression as the Tasmanian openers put on 166 without loss off 58 overs at stumps on the second day

  • Dravid's century sustains India

    Rahul Dravid, hitherto struggling to come to terms on the pacy and bouncy Australian wickets, at last struck form on the opening day of their four day match between the Indian tourists and Tasmania at Hobart on Friday
