Match Notes

  • Gilchrist and Ponting power Australia to 61-run win

    Centuries from Gilchrist and Ponting power Australia to a 61-run win

  • Quixotic effort

    India's batsmen tilted bravely at windmills in the best traditions of Don Quixote, but ultimately, they were undone by a magnificent spell of bowling from one of Australia's forgotten men, and the ineptitude of their own bowlers earlier in the day

  • The silver lining for India

    Murali Kartik was the only Indian bowler who earned the respect of the Australian batsmen, especially Ricky Ponting

  • Chaos theory

    The scene near Anil Kumble Circle half an hour before the game would have appealed to those addicted to chaos
