Zak attack: Sting in the tail raises Aussie ire

After being on the ropes at 232-7 at one stage India staged a strong comeback through a 80 run stand between Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh.

This partnership left the Australians very frustrated as the momentum changed during the course of the last session. First Brad Haddin and then Shane Watson tried to upset Zaheer Khan the Indian paceman did not take a step backwards and the verbal attacks seemed to spur him on.

The series came alive and suddenly we have the prospect of the fire and ugly cricket from Bollyline in the Sydney Test upon us.

1st Test, Bangalore, Oct 2008.

It is time that the teams give it a well as they get it. As always these series will get hotter as we move along into the subsequent tests.

Yeah man, we need to have the spice back in the contest. Its only when India take the initiative that the Aussies start sledging.
