India in a precarious situation - B'lore Test

Well, Parthiv Patel and Irfan Pathan did their best on Day 3, but it wasn't quite enough to offset the lame top order performance (even though Pathan was decidedly unlucky). The Aussies are in a really commanding position now and it is diffcult to see India saving it from here. Oh yes, I said that - I know we have Dravid and Laxman plus Sehwag and Sourav, but can we really have another miracle of Kolkata 2001 proportions? At least to save the game if not to win it! As things stand, the Aussies need to put on another 150-200 runs on the board to be safe and they need to get that quickly to have enough time to bowl India out. The chances of a draw, therefore may not be as remote as they seem on the surface, especially if Australia struggle to score quickly. All in all though, India are in a real corner! Yours truly...
