Too much of cricket this year caused me to stay away from the first four matches of "The honour series". But matches like this keep pulling me back. Another ethereal knock by Sachin and India was sniffing the victory. I wish Jadeja had taken a few deep breaths after Sachin was gone. Unable to stand the pressure, he was almost rushing to get out and be gone from the field.

Australia's bench strength is getting stress tested and yet they manage to outperform.

A disappointing loss but a great match.

A real real real real disappointing loss after such an effort by Sachin :(

and as always India showed how it can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.. what a nasty series loss

Yea, two close matches that could have been won reasonably would have turned this series around
