Another tense day in India

As in the first Test, the final day of the 2nd India v Australia Test looks like it could well be a thriller. And what comes next? 3 meaningless ODIs. The days of 5 or more matches in a Test series might be gone, but with the India v Australia Test series proving so exciting, isn't it a pity that a 3rd Test isn't being played rather than the ODIs. The crowd would then get to see Tendulkar bat, because the result would matter, rather than Shikhar Dhawan.

I don't understand why they didn't play another Test either. Feels odd.

OTOH, there have been comments here in Australia to the effect that it has been bad to have any of these Tests in India because it interrupts the preparations for the Ashes somehow. (I don't quite follow the logic so don't even bother asking.) Anyway, that might have something to do with it.
