  • Ponting's fine, Ponting's odd

    In Melbourne he began both innings serenely, before losing form a bit. He now seems to need to think where once he barely had to

  • India need to rethink strategy against tail

    Australia's last four wickets outscored India's by 79 runs over both innings at the MCG. In a series that could be decided by lower-order contributions, MS Dhoni may need to change his defensive tactics

  • Dhoni backs umpires over DRS

    India will not support the DRS until they are convinced that the technology is 100% perfect, captain MS Dhoni has reiterated

  • India must learn to get tail out - Dhoni

    After India's 122-run loss at the MCG, India's third first-Test loss on their last four tours, MS Dhoni said it was the batting that let the side down

  • MCG victory needs repeating - Clarke

    Michael Clarke is conscious of going to Sydney with a greater accent on repeating the good of Melbourne while remedying the bad.
