After another long 150 run middle order stand, we knocked over the last 6 Pakistani wickets for only 72 runs. Siddle the best of the Aussie bowlers with 3/58.

Pak 482 all out.

Finch and Khawaja then held out to stumps.

Aus 0/30.

We've got the wobbles against their spin. 3 down now (Khawaja out for 85) and Mitch Marsh was dropped.

Aus 3/167

Well the wobbles became a total collapse. After an opening stand of 142, we lost all 10 wickets for just 60 runs  :P.

Aussies 202 all out.

Pakistan hasn't called the follow on. So they are batting to force us to bat last on that pitch  :help.

Pak 0/15.


We trail by 295 runs.

Gillespie should be coach , Bailey should be captain, Carey or Neville should be keeper...Langer is just a continuation of the same idiot mentality and he'll keeping backing his useless Sandgroper mates like the Chuckle Brothers...:shh

Khawaja the only positve so far.... :shh :shh

What about Finch

Been pleasantly surprised by how he's gone.

He's been surprisingly solid so far but don't see him a long term proposition in test cricket... :shh

We drew  :o the test thanks to Khawaja 141 and Head 72, plus Lyon hanging around with Paine 61* for the last 12 overs of play.


Pakistan 482 & 181/6d

Australia 202 & 362/8 (139.5 ov, target 462)

Match drawn.
