Australian Cricketers Fight Back

Friday 19/12/14

On Day 3 of the 2nd test match between Australia and India, the Australian cricket team responded positively to the start made by India on Day 1 & 2. Perhaps the highlight of the day was the century made by newly appointed captain Steve Smith (133), who combined with Mitchell Johnson (88) to turn the match back in Australia’s favour. Chasing India’s first innings total of 408, the Australians were all out for 505, while the end of day’s play saw India navigate their way to 1/71 at stumps.

In other cricketing news, the 2nd match of Big Bash League 4 saw the Sydney Sixers chase down the Melbourne Renegades total of 154. The star of the show was young gun Nic Maddinson who made a match-winning 84 runs of 54 balls.

And in NHL news, the Panthers, Hurricanes, Ducks, Sharks, Penguins, Capitals and Kings all got wins last night. The Panthers and Capitals will be especially glad with their win, after participating in a record shootout a few days ago. That shootout went for 20 rounds and seriously tested the nerves of their fans.
