In case Tim Paine’s comment had to be extrapolated…
The question is though, does anyone like anyone you play with as a bloke?

KL Rahul’s woes don’t seem to end.
Rahul has been bowled nine times this year. One more will tie record for a Test year (Alec Stewart. 1994, & Michael Clarke, 2013).
Rahul has been bowled in single figures 5 times this year – the most single-figure castlings in a year by a top 6 batsman.https://t.co/sd6uwghVL9 https://t.co/IuBqPwT61L

Jasprit Bumrah’s finesse is par limitations.
Jasprit Bumrah has drawn 33 play-and-misses in this Test match. No other bowler in the CricViz database (2006-present) has drawn more in a single Test match in Australia. A gem of a performance. #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/ll8kABt1Eo

Fiery bowling, gutsy strokeplay, this pitch provided everything.
This is certainly the most entertaining drop-in pitch I've seen #AusvInd

One of a kind?
Was Aaron Finch out for a golden 25? #AUSvIND

Mitch Marsh bags some spotlight even as a sub.

Perhaps a wrist spinner can disrupt the trend?
India's struggle to dismiss the tail and the comparative struggle of India's own lower order to match their opponents could well come to define this year of away Test cricket for India. It cost them the series against England & could well do so again in Australia. #AUSvIND https://t.co/b0D8pGXhyc
