Dehli Test ends in a draw

The third Test between India and Australia ended in a predictable draw after some high scoring from both sides and and its now down to the final Nagpur Test to determine the winner of the series.

To win the series India will need to either win or draw but for Australia to square the series they will need to win the last Test.

I think India had a very good first innings and I thought they were on a winning trail when they declared on the second day but Australia also showed how good they are with the bat scoring 577 runs in return to India's 613.

From there I could see that the match was headed for a draw unless something dramatic happened.

I think the highlight from this Test was to see two Indian players score double centuries in the same innings. VVS Laxman scored 200 and opener Gautam Gambhir scored 206.

For Australia I think Michael Clarke's century was crucial especially when chasing such a high total. I always thought that the key for Australia was to avoid a follow on.

Possibly the biggest news of the series so far came when Indian bowler and captain Anil Kumble announced that he was retiring from Test cricket.

He retires having a total of 619 wickets putting him in third position overall behind Muttiah Muralitharan and Shane Warne in terms of Test wickets taken.

I am looking forward to the fourth and final Test and I hope it will be more entertaining.
