If Pakistan could say bat till tea and make 284 then it would mean aussies would have 160 lead but as pitch playing ok they would probably need to bat 3 sessions to make game safe.

Pakistan would probably have to see out around 4 sessions to save game.

I guess i better start to think about setting my Sat Nav to guide me to Mars :(

Not a great day for Pakistan :(

BUT as ever in remain optimistic :) this marathon is only jst over half finished .. the aussies sprinted a few more yards clear today :( .. but that was pakistans first innings of the series... they still batted nearly 100 overs .. and with the cobebs off and most of them getting starts and spending time at the crease.... i am confident that in 2nd innings they can at a lot more themn 100 overs ;)

So i think draw remains a strong possibility.... and even a pakistan win cannot be ruled out yet :0

There is a dillema for tricky ricky ?:| .. his arrogant declaration in first innings will give him a headache .. having seen pakistan bat nearly 100 overs.. he knows he will probably need 5 sessions to owl out pakistan a 2nd time ... but if he sets thm around 420 in 150 overs .. pakistan could nick it if hey get off to a good start :)

Ih he plays safe and sets 450 in less then 5 sessions .. pakistn could bat out hose overs for a draw :0

Judging by his arrogance in 1st innings ..i reckon its odds on that he will declare around lunchtime and indeed set that 420 in 150 overs ;)

With that likely scenario we could have an interesting pakistan chase ... to have a good chance of saving it, pakistan would need to be 3 wickets own at the close at most .. to have a chance of winning it. they need to be no worse hen 140-2 at the close ;)

So in my opinion, this game... this marathon..is far from over...i fully expect pakistan to get a second wind in 2 nd innings and have a great chance of at least saving the game ;)

Aussies are currently 1.23 :^0 to lay ..i have layed them a bit more at this price ... it really would be rude not to ;)

Good Luck all ... remember ... marathon.... not a sprint ;)

problem is bj, i think you're assuming that pakistan is india with a better pace attack, they really aren't, mentally they're much more fragile and yousuf and perhaps baby akmal aside they're are not of the same class. pakistan were never going to do well in their first test in oz, asian teams never do, but come sydney they may have a much better chance.
Report bigjoe December 28, 2009 3:31 PM GMT
oitoi..i do not consider pakistan as classy as india .. and nor does ponting or he would never have declared at 454 ;)

But i do not underestimate pakistan either lke ponting does. I remember against sri lanka a couple of years ago ponting set an arrogant 450 in 2 days as target ... and the lankans reached something like 170-2 at close on 4th day and traded around 4.0 overniight from being 100s :0

Sri lanka lst that game .... but i think similar situation will arise here.. ponting will set pakistan around 3 an over or less to win this test .. he may even declare 20 minutes before lunch to give pakitan a tricky 20 minutes and chasing only 400 in over 5 sessions :0

Ok so pakistan are no India .. BUT crucial thing will be the new ball.... IF pakitan can get through first 10 overs of their reply losing only one wicket, i would ive them a massive chance of saving it :)

The pitch is still playing well... the pakistani batted nealy 100 overs in first dig... they will be better equiped for 2nd innings and they only need 2 or 3 big partnerships to knock a big hole in a 420 run chase .... they got players capable on these types of good pitches to put together massive partnerships...i beleve we ill see at least one massive partnership and a few reasonable ones in pakistan 2nd innngs ;)

I still beleve that pontings arrogant 1st innings declaration will come back to bite him in this match ;)

God Luck :)
Report scliffor December 28, 2009 3:50 PM GMT
Think the SL chase was a little higher than you suggest, at least 500.

We'll see what the dec is but I'd be surprised if Ponting sets less than 500.

Don't buy that the first innings dec was arrogant, Aus probably had enough to avoid defeat and gave their bowlers a chance to see if they could knock over Pakistan. Never likely that Pakistan would score 700 and put Aus under pressure.

After several of Pontings dec's costing me this series, i really shouldnt bet on how many he'l leave pak needing this time. I have no idea anymore. lol. hopefully wants bout 135 overs to bowl them out which i think ponting will believe they can do. Leave 45 overs for a slog.

100 runs in the morning 211/5 (+407) 150 over left. would he declare at this point?? dont think so. (hope not)

another 15 overs say@ 5 an over 286/8 (+482) 135 overs left. maybe gets a few more for that 500 lead off 130 overs?

if they score 225 here = +421
if they score 250 here = +446
if they score 275 here = +471
if they score 300 here = +496

on the runs.... going for over 275 and under 300. A wicket to fall and ponting to say enough.

Pak odds look ridicilously short to me making Aus and the draw less so a tick big but that implies an intertwine market. ;-)

Can't see Pak winning from here but there is always the chance of Ponting standing in the field with arms folded in freeze mode and without an idea as the Aus bowlers limply lose the plot bowling muck after muck.
