 Q:   Ask a Question about GLENN- THE TORMENTOR       
Barring a bit of resilience from youngsters Parthiv Patel and Irfan Pathan, who helped India reach a respectable total, India bowed down meekly to the Australian bowlers on the 3rd day of the test in Bangalore.

India could manage to reach only 246 runs before being bowled out by the Aussies who performed splendidly in all areas of the match till now.

The main culprit behind all of this mess was none other than Glenn Mc Grath who picked up 4 Indian wickets out of the ten. Glenn McGrath continued his work as tormentor in chief as Australia bowled India out for a partly 246, but the visitors chose not to enforce the follow-on when given the option.

When the home team was bowled out for a paltry score, Glenn Mc Grath finished with figures of four wickets for fifty five runs in his q uota of 25 overs.

India, chasing the Aussies' first-innings total of 474, resumed the day on 150 for six and frustrated the visitors' fearsome bowling attack. Parthiv Patel and Irfan Pathan were glued to the wicket to prevent the fall of early wickets and put on a spirited partnership of 60 runs for the seventh wicket to make a slow but steady and patient progress.

They looked on course to see the home side through to lunch until umpire Billy Bowden wrongly judged Pathan dismissal on 31 when he was caught behind by Adam Gilchrist and bowling by Shane Warne, with television replays appearing to indicate that the ball had struck his pad.

Patel remained unbeaten on 35 at the interval as India reached 199 for seven and were still 275 runs behind the score.

The India wicket-keeper eventually fell for 46 runs, clean bowled by Jason Gillespie, but a resistance later from Anil Kumble gave the Indian supporters something to cheer for.

He along with Harbhajan Singh gave India a boost and took the score to 244, just before Harbhajan was dismissed by McGrath to give him his fourth wicket of the match and superb figures of four for 55 off 25 overs.

Glenn Mc Grath continued his tormentation and his domination on the Indian Batsmen as the Indians looked clueless to his bowling. It seemed as though they hadn't done any home work before coming into the match.
