Pakistan vs Australia 2019 Test Summer
« on: November 21, 2019, 12:54:39 AM »

It's officially the start of summer for us down under and while it will never quite be the same without the dulcet tones of Richie Benaud and the verbal electricity and humour of Tony Grieg the cricket's on the telly and that's reason to celebrate!

I'm quite hopeful of a competitive tour from the Pakistanis given their performances against Australia A on a bouncy Optus Stadium deck in Perth. Their entire top 6 with the exception of Harris Sohail seems to be finding some decent form.

At the time of typing Shan Mahsood and Azhar Ali have navigated the first 11 overs quite well - so much so Paines bought on Lyon quite early. Great to see Shan's B3 looking and sounding majestic.

4/90 as I write this. :D

I was hoping for a bit more fight from the Pak top order...There is a plenty of match still remaining.

Woeful technique by the Pakistan batsmen. Intimidated by the Aussies quick men.

This Aussie bowling attack is probably one of the most disciplined in over a decade. Just consistant line and length with very few poor balls.

Indeed it is, I spoke with Shan on Tuesday. He did camp was going well and looking forward to getting on the field. He played well but got a good one. If I know Shan he will have been in the nets soon afterwards working on his game.

Rizwan and Shafiq looked good. Rizwan was not out! It was not a bad performance from Pak batting and we won't really know until AUS bats.

Looking like a good Test.

How many times do those decisions go australias way at home, happens nearly every tour.
Was definitely a no ball with nothing behind the line

Australia already sprinting away in Brisbane, 305-1. Warner 151*, Burns 97 and Marnus 48*. Pakistans bowling attack as average as youll see at Test level.

Pakistan are a really poor test side these days. The sooner they get back to playing at home the better, as it must affect participation significantly.

Their attack is completely wrong - a selection gaffe that even Bayliss would be proud of.

Abbas ripped them a new one in the Middle East but doesnt get a game in more helpful conditions. Poor chap must be livid.

According to the commentary team the 16 year old bowled 21 no balls, none where called by the umpires. He got Warner out with a no ball, only noticed when they checked during the dismissal.

ICC are really incompetent. The third umpire literally gets a pay check for drinking tea during a match. Make him do the no ball checks

If that is the case what is Waqar Younis doing during the nets?  Shouldnt he be identifying and correcting stuff like that as coach.

Everyone pushing themselves will bowl the occasional no ball, and without a warning or being called, you assume that everything is fine, and keep doing what you're doing.  Hard to blame the bowler or the coach, when it's always been the umpires job to call no-balls.

There was a good interview with Ricky Ponting, where he said that for this to happen, there must have been a directive to the umpires to not look for no balls, and concentrate on the decisions up the other end.

Initially you'd think not being called is an unfair advantage to the bowlers, but turns out it goes the opposite way.
