No real run rate pressure here at an overall 80% strike rate so a decent power play will mean Smith & Labuschagne can play in test match mode if that's what it takes.

It's a bonus when you can silence a crowd of 112,000

They never lack bottle stew it's more the pressure cooker of the cauldron and of course they are some spearhead bowlers , match could still change when the 4th & 5th bowlers are forced on.

How many sportsmen ever have to play in front of 110,000+ crowd with 99% of them screaming for the opponents.

Oh no.

The impact on Steve Smith was outside the line of off stump.

He would have survived with a review.

He did debate it with Travis Head but opted not to.

This is great stuff, and whilst Aussies are behind

is handy for them.

You can get carried away when a bowling team looks well on top in the early part but have to remember a bowler can only bowl 10 overs and it can look a different game when 4th and 5th bowlers introduced.

Australia have a beautifully balanced batting line up with game changers Head , Marsh and Maxi with two top notch test players in at 4 & 5 so they're prepared for any run rate or steadying ship scenario.

This is a masterclass in tactics from Labuschagne to support a wonderful knock from Head.
