Maybe it’s the round ball that’s doing for them.


#42

First test match in seven months, since the ball tampering series in South Africa starting against Pakistan tomorrow morning. Will you be able to field a team @Fitzy with all the absentees?


#43

Pakistan are the no 1 team in world at moment as far as I’m concerned. If we had full pick you could make comparisons but this should be an easy series win for the mullahs


#44

Pakistan 97/0 after 34 overs.


#45

Which Aussie is in charge of minding the ball?


#46

165/0. Harder to come by wickets when you can’t ball tamper.


#47

Stumps on Day 3: Pakistan 482 & 45/3 Australia 202.

Pakistan lead by 325 runs with 7 wickets in hand. Calamitous Australia batting collapse. 160/2 to 202 all out.


#48

At least we got Hafeez out, he’s a dinger of a player once he gets in


#49

I see Peter Siddle is playing. Thought he was long gone.


#50

He was playing for some old village in the pennines last I heard. Supposed to be a very nice man.


#51

What a result, what grit and fortitude under incessant pressure. That draw is a massive fillip for us. Paine and Kawaja were like Davy Crockett and General Custer out there today at times. Take a bow sons


#52

Shane Warne has a book out. He’s done an interview with Vaughan for the BBC podcast.


#53

The two Marshs made an impressive contribution.


#54

@Fitzy will be seething over that.


#55

Australia in command on the first morning of the second test in Abu Dhabi. Nathan Lyon has picked up 4 wickets in 6 balls. Pakistan 57/5.


#56

Pakistan, the Waterford of the cricket world.


#57

Homeless?

There’s a lot more Pakistanis in the United Arab Emirates than there is Waterford people in their termporary home of Limerick.


#58

weird enough response


#59

Australia 91/7 in response to Pakistan’s 282.


#60

From Pakistan being at 51/5 or whatever, the spread betting patterns would be interesting.
