I suspect that if and when Carey gets his hundred here, we'll see both batsmen start going the tonk.
II think Australia will be quite worried about having half of their bowling attack out and will try and get a serious score here

This is true but SA will have to get around 500 to be competitive. That ain’t happening.

350 ahead is already a lot. I want to see Green now free the shackles.

Awesome effort by Carey... great to see him get a century because he's not usually coming into bat at the most opportune times.

Yep just have a bash, get to around 400 or so and have a bowl before the next break.

Win the Sydney test?

They're batting as much now to win Melbourne as Sydney. Their bowlers have been out there for 135 overs and yesterday was hot.

Australia bowled 68 overs.

Going to Sydney 2-0 down and having bowled 200 overs and two days in the field and looking up and seeing 400 plus to even make us bat again will win the Sydney Test too.

They've also come here 2nd in the WTC and are getting humiliated with their much hyped pace attack.

Nortje is the only one that's looked consistently threatening... Rabada and Ngidi have both looked off the pace, and Jansen hasn't done much when the Kookaburra isn't swinging

They will want to have 10-15 at them tonight and then come again fresh in the morning, so they can get 2 spells of bowling out of Cummins/Boland with the new ball

Massive effort by Green to grind out a 50 with a broken finger.

Did his job of defending and staying out there with Carey so he could do the work

I hope like hell they play the concussion replacement card, just like the Indians did when Jadeja was clearly struggling with a leg injury (yet went on to belt a few more runs before copping a glancing one to the head), change of innings they go the concussion replacement and out comes Chahal who is a specialist leg-spinner

Why are they checking snicko and shit when the ump is just wanting to check if it carried??

You can check if it’s carried and then allow the batter to challenge if he hit it or not

I tell you what, who cares if his finger isn't good, Starc should play next test. He's bowling grenades.
