    We went to the last India Test in Brisbane - some years back. India started batting in the morning - second innings - about 2 down - lost all wickets. We came in - lost about 5 - 6 wickets - but won the game. We must have seen both sides bat and bowl, seen about 12-15 wickets fall - and seen the result - we won. Quite a day. When we arrived - Day 4 - we thought it was going to be a slow day ... :)

    Best Test Day I've seen.

    So - a score of 250-275 - if we aren't bowled out.

    Stick to my estimate - what's the old rule - double whatever you are at 30 overs ?

    Depends how many wickets you have in hand, but if you get 5 runs per over after 30 overs than that is 150 runs. To get 150 in the last 20 overs, you would need 7.5 runs per over.

    True - but that's the way many estimate it.

    5 for 288 is alright. Stoinis batted well, and so did Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Handscomb, and Maxwell at the end there. Handscomb the best.

    Yes - almost got to 300. We're in with a big chance - if we field and bowl well.
