Heading into day 5 of the 3rd test match

India NEED 309 runs to win off a possible 90 overs. Australia needs 8 wickets to win

Odds:

Australia 1.16, Draw 8.20, India 42

My gut feeling is India can bat deep into the final session. 7/1 is terrific odds and should be tradeable during the final day.

India NEED 135 runs off 36 overs in the final session. Australia need 5 wickets to win

Final session odds:

Australia 1.48, Draw 3.45, India 28

Heading into the Final Day at the GABBA

India need 324 runs to win off around 98 overs. Rain should stay away. Aussies require 10 wickets to win.

Australia 2.46, Draw 1.78, India 27

Going to be a humdinger of a final day.

Had the required run rate been around 3 an over I reckon India would have had a dash at the target. Don’t think India can win but this series has pretty much had it all.

whilst 3 and a bit an over , as a run rate to chase down doesn’t sound much. Just 1 session where the batsman get into a defensive frame of mind, will mean an India chance of winning will be eliminated.

I’ve watched a fair bit of test cricket, if India lose a cluster of wickets or are about 4 wickets down or more come the start of the final session, it will all be about blocking.

Pujara the number 3 batsman will look to be cautious from the get go.

Australia shortening about 3.5 hours before the start of day 5

Australia 1.95, Draw 2.28, India 19.50
