"Should I remind you of the Monkey Gate scandal?"
When was the last time Test cricket so exciting. I mean, every match of this series was so exciting and eventful. Added to that, not a single match was drawn. But Aussies will be striving hard to draw the final match.
I feel bad for Australia. This series has stood with the side that won the toss. Australia has won just one of the toss and they have won just that match. The pitches has been good for batting and then slowly starts supporting bowlers. That has been the case with all the 4 matches.
Another notable thing is the sledging between both the sides. Sledging was present between the sides for decades . Should I remind you of the Monkey Gate scandal?But the sledging so far in this series has been a healthy one . Tim Paine has been in the front. He is a funny guy, and those who watched him answering that phone call meant for a reporter during press conference would definitely agree with me. But when he sledged Pant, he didn't realise Pant would actually bounce back when his turn comes.
This series will be remembered for Tim Paine, Poojara, and of course Pant. Pant has been consistently scoring 30s and his unbeated 152 was well deserved. After all Tim Paine has seen what a "babysitter" can do. Poojara has proved his is the rightful replacement for Rahul Dravid.
