It’s matter sorrow to see Australia and westindies in such pathetic situation. Steve Smith and David Warner today are just like Lara and Chanderpaul of 2000s. If they are not around their team’s situation gets bad to worse…I am not even talking about legends like Clive Lloyd, Richards, Allan border, Steve Waugh, ponting…I don’t see any upcoming player from both teams who could take Australia and westindies out of this sorry state of affairs. People complaining about slow scoring, This is not Perth or gabba where ball comes on to the bat hard . It’s slow and low with spin not easy to bat on Pakistan posted a good total Australia are already behind in the game and day 3 is when pitch gets better and we get a result.
Pakistan lost their way here. They played the time game by batting discretely to grind out a total while the pitch deteriorated. It seemed 600 by an hour before stumps was on but they muddled their way to 482.The run out of Babar was key .The game is still in Pakistan’s hand. Particularly with the rough for Yasir to work into from around the stumps. Pakistan Score 482/10
Finally Pakistan showed some stance of being at home ground otherwise in asia cup it wz felt that they r playing overseas
