Scoreline: Australia (2nd Inn) 349 all out Steven Smith 77, Michael Clarke 77, Paine 33 | Aamer 4, Asif and Kaneria 2 each
Pakistan 140/3 (Chasing 180) Imran Farhat 67, Azhar Ali 47 no | Bollinger 2
7 wickets in hand, 40 runs to go. Despite this, if there’s a feeling going around the cricketing world that Australia can still win this, it’s more the image Pakistan have created for themselves than a tribute to the Australian attitude. About time that image got a makeover. Being unpredictable etc is cool up to a certain extent – beyond that it’s like a blank movie with FNM’s “I started a joke” as the background score.
Pak – Even if Azhar Ali gets 6 ducks in his next 3 tests, he would still deserve another game.
Aus – No sign of Johnson yet. It’s going to be really intriguing to see if Ricky takes a punt on him come Day 4 – it could all be over in a hurry or…..He’d still need a lot of help from the Pak batsmen though.
As for Steven “Ritalin” Smith, Warne recently on air called him a “work in progress” (his bowling). That’s ok. We can wait. And in the meantime, watch Cricket’s Arshavin bat. And revel in him passionately shepherding his team’s tail.
