Fly Slip-Looking for lost balls...: Australias bulldog grit sees them through

Australias bulldog grit sees them through

This is why this teams best test team in the world.

Its hard to see too many teams that can recover from the position Australia were in today.

The key to the whole thing once again was being aggressive. Its amazing what a positive mind set can do.

At 57-4 most teams would scurry into their shell, but Micheal Clarke and Brad Haddin proved their worth in the team. Although another failure from Haddin might cost him his spot.

There were some reckless shots being played by both but once they got their eye in slightly , most started connecting. Clarke especially looked good when coming down the wicket.

However, doing this when the partnership is going well and with India slightly on the back foot is one thing. Doing this tomorrow might not prove too successful.

Tomorrow will ask for a different set of skills from the batsmen. The skill to survive the first wave of Indian onslaught and to weather the second.

To turn the pressure back onto them in the 2nd session.

And to cling on for dear life in the 3rd.

If any team can do this its the Aussies.

Another joyous test match cricket awaits

Who are you backing Damith? I'm cheering on the Indian team - well most of it anyway. Do you think the Aussies have been watching England's openers and middle order to collapse like that?

Im backing the Aussies cuz I wanna see a good game. If India come out and roll over Aus in the first hour no fun.

If the Aussies can hang on till the 2nd session without losing a wicket who knws !

Well they have seen them do it first hand. A lot of times. So you could be onto something :)
