Clarke defends Kohli's actions during Test series

Former Australia fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has suggested the pitch in Dharamsala may assist seamers. "Dharamsala is an wonderful ground and the only times I have seen it are with grass on (the pitch)".

"I think Ajinkya Rahane would probably step up to captain their side".

Gavaskar gave an example of asking Kapil Dev to play on the final day of a Test match in Melbourne in 1981 even though the legendary pacer was not fully fit.

"Special players are allowed to have bad series, but Kohli's great crime is he's proven that the spirit of cricket is officially dead", it added. I think those two guys (Peter Handscomb and Shaun Marsh) batted really well and credit goes to them for saving the Test match. But that's the game. I m surprised he didn t get reported.

Johnson, 35, said that if the wicket at Dharamsala turns out to be more of an Australian kind then Bird would come in as the third quick in the Playing XI. Even though the Mumbaikar's half-century in the second Test laid the foundation of a famous comeback, he's some distance away from his fluent best.

As unsexy as such talk of defence and containment can be, Smith's plans have put him within touching distance of becoming the first Australian captain since Adam Gilchrist in 2004 to lead a series victory in India.

"It's another game of cricket, one-all in the series and a lot to play for in this game". "They (Australia) will be pumped after that. They were really able to replicate the conditions there, to strategise".

Tulsa Police have released dash cam video of a suspect Madison Dickson, 21, being run over by a patrol vehicle during a pursuit. Several seconds later, the camera captures Dickson running and pointing what investigators said is a gun at the patrol vehicle .

"I've been to Australia for India A tour, so I'm quite used to it". And Australia's plans for this tour of India - a campaign of which Smith is immensely proud regardless of what happens in the final Test in Dharamsala - have been coming together since they were humiliated with a 0-3 defeat in Sri Lanka previous year.

Steve O'Keefe spun the visitors to a series-opening win in Pune before the hosts levelled the series during a spiteful game in Bangalore.

"And probably we will take a call on it later tonight or tomorrow (Saturday) so I think we will have to give that much time more for me to make that call with the physiotherapist". Of course, they have pushed us to coming back in the series. "So it was nearly a defensive mechanism for them and obviously they come out in the second Test match, performed really well and got back into it".

Swashbuckling India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has become the latest big name to come out in support of Virat Kohli after Australian Media compared the Indian skipper with US President Donald Trump. And Gilchrist thinks that the Aussies have done far better than many anticipated. He's different but he's a lovely kid. I might roll the arm over lightly just to see how it goes. He says some odd things, he comes up with some unusual theories.

"I've been really impressed with Renshaw", Smith said.

"I thought the way we fought out that draw was magnificent. We can knuckle down when we need to but we can attack when we want to and we can", he said.

Smith, whose leadership has developed immensely since the horrors of Hobart last November, cares more about the future.
