    Paine can eat his words now, while he contemplates stepping down from the captaincy tomorrow

    Got a little embarrasing there , if there is not a major overhaul of where we are headed now I dont know what will , frail batting order that has been hidden by some good individual innings at the right time , and a very good bowling attack
    The field settings were baffling at times I'm not sure Paine knew we had to win the test to win the series for a while ,
    On the other side of the coin what a performance by India losing 8 of the players that played in the first test which I suppose might not have been a bad thing , but they showed some true courage today and the rest of the series after Adelaide
    Amazing what young guys pushed into a team before they are ready can do , we are playing injured players and they played net bowlers
    Pujara what a innigns that was getting like a boxing bout where you are yelling at the ref to stop the fight .

    Bloody great series to watch, that was. Maybe not so much for Australian supporters but cricket lovers, yes.

    Totally agree, you don’t see that sort of drama in T20.

    No matter the result, that’s why I love Test cricket.

    Unbelievable effort by India after getting embarrassed in Adelaide and coupled with lots of injuries to turn everything around to win the series.

    Not sure what to say about Australia, we just managed to find the wrong times to stuff up but found some real talent like Cameron Green.

    Post-mortem can wait until tomorrow - today should be solely about congratulating India for winning. They were clearly the better side across the series, and thoroughly deserve their victory.

    BUT, wow, the post-mortem tomorrow will be a doozy ...

    Great test and a great series. India thoroughly deserved it. To pull that off without their best batsman (and captain) and all of their best bowlers is very, very impressive. Their depth is unbelievable. They beat our best team at home with their 3rd stringers.

    The post mortem is simple - they were better than us. It happens. There’s no point overhauling the team when virtually position for position there’s no one better on the bench.
    Cinderella story, out of nowhere, former greenskeeper, now about to become a Masters champion..... It looks like a mirac.. It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

    That's not necessarily true. Khawaja average near 100 openning in Australia, what if he was picked instead of the obviously out of form Burns for the first test?

    But yes, India absolutely deserved the win.

    Before anyone puts Paine's head on the stake, what about the quasi-aussie (Wanker) Langer, he's at the forefront of tactics and selection.

    I want to hear all of the suggested replacements for this "overhaul". The Aussies didn't make enough runs. It's one of the few series where Australia have never scored over 400 runs in any innings. But more importantly, the Indians were able to hold out the very good bowling line up. I'd like to see if Swepson is a better option than Lyon. Lyon has been serviceable when there hasn't been many options, but his numbers aren't that good.

    Full credit to India, too good despite all the injuries and departures and being the away team. I thought we were on par with them and would win at home but they are well ahead really. They have good depth too as shown by the rise of guys like Gill and Siraj. How good has Gill been?

    Plenty of amusement on the internet as Lyon after hundreds of wickets has suddenly been found out. Starc, Lyon, Wade, Paine, Langer and the entire group of selectors need to be dropped etc etc.

    The fact is India were just too good.

    Lyon has hundreds of wickets because he has played a hundred tests. I was told that he has the worst bowling average of any Australian bowler with over 200 wickets, including Brett Lee.
