Steve Smith’s lovely salute on reaching his hundred, just after Lunch on Day 2 in Adelaide…

With the morning session stagnated by rain breaks on Day 2 in Adelaide, the Guerilla Cricket often found themselves ‘padding’ through periods of no play. With Lunch taken early, and a highlights package completed, I came to the guys’ aid as play resumed after the break.

But not for long, admittedly. We were able to talk Steve Smith through to his hundred, and Australia’s total to 408 (Phillip Hughes’ Test number), but with Michael Clarke batting again and on 97 not out, the rain returned.

So here’s the Lunch chat with the Guerilla gang, and here’s hoping this rain does finally clear..

The Fourth and final India-Australia Test is under way at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi, and it’s a case of fourth verse, same as the first.

Stand-in Captain Shane Watson won the toss and batted, Australia did reasonably well in the first session, but as has become the Australian way on this tour, fell in a heap in the middle session.

In the Tea break, I spoke with the The Roar Live Radio guys at length about the dismissals, and the ongoing exclusion of Usman Khawaja.
