  • 'It's not the time for drastic changes' - Rajput

    In terms of runs it was India's worst defeat in Australia but the side is giving off vibes of being confident enough to bounce back

  • Johnson relieved to hold his own

    Mitchell Johnson ended a Test he was not sure he would play in with anenhanced reputation and the hope India's batsmen would see him as a threat for the rest of the series

  • Openers cause headaches for Kumble

    It's ironic that a year that began with India celebrating a new openingcombination has ended with them grappling over the choice of their top two

  • Australia extend MCG dominance

    Stats highlights from the fourth day of the Boxing Day Test between Australia and India

  • Patient Hogg upstages India

    Hogg's Australia's best spin option and can be satisfied that he out-performed Symonds and troubled one of the game's most accomplished players of spin
