Test Cricket Found Alive and Well in India

Who said Test cricket is boring?

Day 4 of the India v Australia Test proves that the five day Test match is alive and well. India piled on the runs, revealing Australia's weak point at having no decent spinner. Gambhir, Sehwag and Dhoni were able to accumulate a whopping 314-3 before declaring.

After an aggressive start by Katich and Hayden, Australia appeared to be doing what they do best: bat like their lives depend on it. That was until Harbhajan and Sharma turned up and decided enough was enough and ripped apart the top order, leaving Australia 58-5.

And then the fightback began. Haddin and Clarke are proving that there is still potential to score and hold their own on 141-5.

Tomorrow will prove to be an excellent day of cricket, whichever way it goes.
