SummaryEarly wickets off deliveries that came in encouraged visitors to ignore India's weakness.

will realise that most of his wickets had come with the ball that moved away slightly. His dismissal of Virat Kohli at Kolkata was a classic example of how he exploited this problem by playing on India’s age-old dilemma. To start with, he pitched two balls outside the off-stump that moved away. An alert Kohli let them go. The third ball, pitched slightly closer to off stump, seemed pregnant with possibilities. The young No.5 hung his bat out. It flew away once again, taking the edge on the way. Tendulkar and Dhoni too fell in a similar fashion.

The second spinner seems to have occupied a lot of Aussie mindspace in the last five days, but a thought needs to be spared for the flaws of the pace unit. The visitors need to take a second opinion about their first plan.
