Thoughts on the Sydney Test

Perfect 5th day scenario, with all 4 results perfectly possible (with varying levels of confidence -- Aussie win, draw, India win, tie -- are my confidence levels). 300 to get of 80 overs seems to be the consensus, 3.75 RPO.. But then the Indians scored at 3.84 in the first innings..

However, one major factor that could play out in Ponting's declaration is the absence of Sehwag. If Veeru was in the team (even in poor form), Ponting's declaration would definitely have had some thought on the possible impact of the Najafgarh Nut.

Not anymore ..
