Decent fight shown by the younger players but we were well and truly beaten.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm based in Oz at the moment so got to watch or listen to a lot of the test live. Yes, your lads were well and truly beaten, but I think the scoreline is a tad deceptive.

There were some decent phases of PAK play in the match, but too many naive test match cricket errors, which is understandable from some of the youngsters.

Moments like the no ball wicket, whilst probably wouldn't have changed the outcome of the match, but if moments like that went the other way then it wouldn't seem so doom and gloom.

I don't know all the peripheral players and the behind the scenes stuff that you guys all do, but as an outsider, I can see there's some positives and you guys should see a much closer match starting Thursday.

Selection defied logic, bowler who was no 1 in the world not so long ago was not picked and replacements were far too inexperienced. Few expected Pakistan to win and none after 1st test but we expect a fight rather than one sided test matches.

Time to forget that this series is even happening. Sri Lanka end of December

Your lads got off to a perfect start and had a decent first session. It's begun to unravel this evening though. Shaheen just kicked the ball over the boundry for four when picking it up well inside the ropes. Warner and Labuschagne are now scoring very fast, more than 6 an over for a while now.

Desperately need to break this partnership or they'll take the match away in quick time.

Yasir Shah mocking Steve Smith with 7 times or something and now hes getting Aussie justice.

They're really going hard. 76 runs off the last 10!

Sorry Kaz. It's gonna take something incredible to turn this around.

300 runs in a day is a good day, and there were 17 overs lost for rain!

Warner was clearly a massive liability in the Ashes, but when he's on form he's game changer.

Good job football is back on tomorrow.

Good thing it’s only 2 tests. Tbh I think our team would lose to just about any international team. Our bowlers are finished and our batsmen are hit and miss.

Bangladesh series should be competitive at least.

This is utterly embarrassing. Never seen Pakistan attack thrashed like this.This is as one sided as it can get. Fire this management and make wholesale changes in squad before records against us pile up

Man who appointed Misbah should not hold any public office, thats was the reason why I am against appoint any imported CEO/Managers etc. Cricket in Pakistan is very different from rest of the cricketing world. Talent generally exist in rural/semi rural areas. Sports in School is nearly non-existent. To find real talent, it requires extensive travel/ research etc.

Warrior, if you hadn't seen your attack thrashed like yesterday then please don't watch the first session today.

Marnus just got bowled on 162 to break a 361 run partnership just before Warner gets his double century. Run rate is currently 4.45 per over for the innings. They've scored 80 runs in 13 overs so far!

Warner caught out on 226...









... on a no ball!



Sorry for laughing, it's just comical now. Twice in two century innings. First test he made 100 runs after the no ball wicket. Hopefully he doesn't add another 100 this time.

Weather forecast for the next two days is for rain. There is hope for you still!

And with all the fires and droughts all over the country, most Ozzies wouldn't complain if the match is a draw because of rain

Rain will only save Aussies, remarkable comeback is imminent by Pakistan

This Pakistan bowling can give stern competition to some of the old Indian pace unit. Haven’t seen a bowling unit look so listless. Not sure what Pakistan management were thinking when they thought of bringing new and young players in Australia. It’s the worst part to debut.

Disagree. Oz is usually a great place for fast bowlers to come to. Better than bowling on a flat dry road for days on end in India. That would be far worse for a young bowlers development so early in their career.

Oz declare for 589. They'd been going at 7 an over for 20 overs. Warner not out on 335 @ 80. Would have got his 400 this evening the rate he's going. Kinda disappointed in the declaration.

Warner had plenty of time to score 400 and still beat us.
