This is why this teams best test team in the world.
Its hard to see too many teams that can recover from the position Australia were in today.
The key to the whole thing once again was being aggressive. Its amazing what a positive mind set can do.
At 57-4 most teams would scurry into their shell, but Micheal Clarke and Brad Haddin proved their worth in the team. Although another failure from Haddin might cost him his spot.
There were some reckless shots being played by both but once they got their eye in slightly , most started connecting. Clarke especially looked good when coming down the wicket.
However, doing this when the partnership is going well and with India slightly on the back foot is one thing. Doing this tomorrow might not prove too successful.
Tomorrow will ask for a different set of skills from the batsmen. The skill to survive the first wave of Indian onslaught and to weather the second.
To turn the pressure back onto them in the 2nd session.
And to cling on for dear life in the 3rd.
If any team can do this its the Aussies.
Another joyous test match cricket awaits
