cant be just missing a straight one at this level
Report Beer and Skittles December 29, 2009 4:20 AM GMT
thats the problem...they have been attacking too much. It was a straight ball that needed defending back down the pitch, not trying to turn it to leg for one.

I take your point but it will still need a world record run chase for the 4th innings of a Test match and they have already lost 3 frontline batsmen on a pitch that is turning quite sharply.

I stand by my opinion . Its not going to happen.

We are now approaching the final stretch of ths marathon ;)

Aussies sprinted off like hares :0 and streaked into a big early lead .. but pakistan did not panic .. they strolled along at their own pace knowing that marathons are ot won in first 10 miles ;)

Now with the inshing line in sight, we are starting to see the inevitable huffing and puffing by the aussies.. they starting to stutter.. they are starting to run out of gas :( .. and ominously , n their rear view window they can see pakistan slowly but surely making up ground.... closing the gap with each passing mile :0

who will win this marathon.... will aussies stutter and scramble desperatly over the line ...will pakistan time their run to perfection ... will they hold hands and agree to cross the line together ? :)

we will find out the answer tommorow .... but to paraphrase clarke gable ... "chaps...i don't ive a damn " :D

I backed backistan at 5.8 prematch. i topped up at 12.5, 17.0, 18.0, 21.0, 25.0, 27.0, 28.0, 29.0 and 30.0 :0 ;)

i have now done the sensible thing and greened out at 5.6 .... leaving me a small green on aussies.... a much bigger green on draw... and stil a very decent bigger green on pakistan :) . i am happy to leave it like that till the end... my betting interest in this test is over ;)

Pakistan have a great chance imo.... yes 3 down .. but its he right 3 as far as hey concerned ..their best batsmen, youse, misbah and the akmal bruvs are still around .. and 2 off them are already settled at the crease with old starts :)

Aussies got their work cut out to take 7 wickets on this pitch... their best hope will be the 2nd new ball that is due mid afternoon.. but if pakistan can get to lunch only 4 down ... it could be game over :)

i sincerely hope pakistan win... i really do not fancy a walk on mars :( ;)

Good Luck :)
