Greened up. Might take the rest of the game off and enjoy the cricket. Has been a good one for me. Go Aussies

Draw has just gone odds on in this remarkable game, approaching 72 million matched too.

Those who had comedy green on India are very unlucky

Huge loss, after having big equity.

5 days work and a massive hole in the pocket - but wouldn't have changed much.

Did think the pitch would have had more spice on day 5 - 5 more overs of Pant etc .. but he played awesome as it was.

Onto the next one.

You and me both! But my "equity" was only $100. Still, I hate squandering greens. I was thoroughly disappointed in Australia's fielding. 4 dropped catches from memory. No excuses for the Aussies!

It was clear India wasn't playing to win. So doubling down by laying India at 6.5 was a big brain move.

Pant was still in at that stage so the win was still on the cards. My theory was that the way Pant was batting it was just a matter of time until a wicket fell so I planned an exit at that point and got lucky that he had a brain fade. I can't say I wasn't nervous watching my green diminish but held out my emotions.

Bad luck to everyone that got caught out, it was one hell of a performance by the Indians

Also a fair bit of rain forecast for days 3, 4 and 5 in Brisbane. The draw is good value above 5 I reckon.
