Smith is better player than Kohli and mentally more strong. Smith delivers Aussies when bmuch aggression is required and Kohli gets out when India needed him the most. No doubt Virat scored bigs runs- so is Smith. But Smith takes Aussis to winning position while Virat leaves team India is defeat position.

You are making ridiculous remarks against Kohli. You must know that Smith has very strong batsmen to support on his either side who are very much experienced whereas Kohli is headin a team of young inexperienced cricketers who look up Kohli for motivation. Kohli's runs under tough conditions and better bowling should be wighed in Gold. His contribution & commitments are great as compared to Smith.
Though Virat is out with out much addition to his overnight score Saha,Ashwin, Kumar and even shami contributed with the bat this time. Fantastic batting by Australia in their second innings like T 20 match. we have to wait and see how India will fight it out tomorrow to save the test

If India was 2-0 up and in the condition in which Aussies were today Indian team would have still scored in more aggressive way. It all depends in which situation you are. Australians assault is nothing great.

They will not declare at this score. They will bat for one hour atleast and in that case India need not play entire day. If Indian openers apply themselves, it is possible for a draw atleast and they can avoid defeat
I saw a lot of venom against him in scorecard forum. Guys just like to announce that Saha is the best WK in India currently. As he keeper he is just next to Syad Kirmani. May be his batting needs to improve a bit.. Waiting for more venomous thoughts from you guys..

Whether he is no 1 or not age is not with Mr Saha and another young keeper who is around 23 or 24 with decent keeping and batting can be tried in future for tests as well as Onedayers like Samson

This No.1 wicket keeper has wasted two easy chances of stumping and run out. It is better we try someone else like Naman Oza or Sanju Samson.
D. Goel pkl afternoon2.30PM ,Friday 9th January 2015 This is very difficult position thaqt Indiansshall face, tomorrow. Will Indian Team couldsave somepride, orwouldlose even thislast day's game. Indiansabroad have to learn different kind ofWicket.we arepreparing ourplayersforvery slow andunbumping tracks! If we desire to face Teams abroad ,we shhould change the design of ourwickets to be skilled to face teams abroad.D. Goel
If Aus declare on overnight score and try to push for victory, it means they are not scared of Kohli. But if they continue to bat and push for safety, then it shows that Kohli has terrified them.....!!!!!

But Australia will bat atleast for an hour or so to add another 50 runs atleast before declaring.They will not take any chances
Now here again the same story would repeat i.e. initially for the first 3-4 days we praised too much to our batsman specially Virat kohli & than again at the end of 4 th day we find India in a position where we have to depend on Australia for their declaration.....this time also if they want than only we can go for thinking of any kind of victory,nothing can be expect from a team of having ranking no.6-7.....
