Absolutely awful for test cricket. Add this to the recent India vs Windies test and it's no wonder people think Test cricket is dying.

I certainly wouldn't say the Australians have bowled poorly, skip the formalities and just plug a bowling machine in at one end.

If the Aussies haven't bowled badly as you say why is it aweful ?

Pkaistan must be batting well then by consequence

The game may be slow but that doesn't mean it's aweful ?

Its awful for test cricket because the grounds man has prepared an absolute road thats offering nothing for the bowling side, not even really turning. Itll get worse through the test and eventually will turn square so the game will be won on the toss of a coin

Pakistan have batted well, and the Aussies have Bowled very well to restrict them to a score that they most likely won't be able to declare at today. The longer they can keep Pakistan batting to a score that they feel comfortable declaring at the better at this point. Genuinely bad for the state of cricket.

What makes a good test match in my opinion is the presence of a contest, and conditions just haven't allowed that.

Realistically Sarfraz should win man of the match for winning the toss for his side, because ultimately, that is what will influence this match the most.

Fair comment but subcontinent conditions are often good for batting

How did wasim and waqar feel bowling in them home conditions for 15 years

I do see what you guys are saying ..it gets boring when pitch is dead

Whilst It's fairly dull cricket, Pakistan are pretty much ensuring that they are the only side that can win this Test. Australia have bowled but Holland has been dreadful hence why Lyon's already bowled some 50 odd overs. In fact Labushchagne looks a better bowler than Holland. No idea how Holland leapfrogged O'Keffe

O'Keefe likes spending most of his time down the pub

would this match be more interesting for the spectators/players/fans...if Australia were awarded the toss?

or would be exactly the same sort of cricket as we have?

Pakistan did exactly the right thing .

Pakistan v Australia should be played in England or New Zealand for the awesome ups and downs and lots of wickets

It's a fascinating test because now aussies have to bat and see how they like the pressure

Hindsight is a funny thing but Paine might be regretting Holland's selection and perhaps wish he'd gone with Neser. Also they picked a slogger like Head ahead of Maxwell because Head's bowling is supposedly better, he even get a bowl

Agar or Doggett should come in for Holland in the 2nd test. Holland is rubbish .

Pakistan not bowling particularly well, both sides of the wicket. Wahab pace isn't there anymore either. Why did they ditch Hasan Ali? Pitch is still ridiculously flat as shown by Khawaja looking semi decent against spin

Ball really starting to grip now, and Khawaja throws it away.
Bilal has a very...err.. interesting action..
But as expected the pitch seems to have turned a corner and it's hard to imagine the Aussies seeing out the day.

4 wickets for 11 runs, game changes in a flash.
