India expectedly finished the third day on a commanding position, albeit coming against a team as weak as Zimbabwe. Ganguly used all his experience and ability to score a hundred. Wonder what this would to his and the team's confidence in the coming months. The last time he scored a century, it was different. It defined the Indian performance in the tour to down under.

Yuvraj once again proved his doubters right. He has shown a spectacular lack of ability playing spinners of all kinds. What is bothering the team think tank in having Kaif in the playing eleven. Kaif has been given the raw deal even when performing creditably in the test matches. This backing of Yuvraj by Ganguly is somewhat unjustified.

The Indian bowlers had their opponents of the mat with Irfan Pathan in particular showing a liking for the Zimbabweans the second time also. At one point, Zimbabwe were well on the way to beat their lowest test innings score of 54. But they finished the day past that score. Looks like a four day test and the media in India shall be all over the place with the victory ignoring the recent dismal show.
