After being forced to follow on they'll being hoping to bat for 3 days. There's not a semblance of depth in the batting order. The tail starts at 1.

Just quietly, I think Moudly might be on to something...

The tail is well and truly in. Only interest is whether Oz will bat out the last session

i just spent 3 days at the match as part of a crowd of about 200 I reckon. As soon as we lost the toss we were going to be up against it, realistically, a draw was the best result we could aim for. That being said, the pitch didn't break up nearly as much as I expected and from 0/142, we needed to at least get on par with their first innings. 

 

Khawaja was amazing in the second innings (and the first for that matter) and in reality he is probably the only world-class batsman in this line up. I've never understood his perceived lack of ability against spin bowling, he has never really been given a chance against spin bowling in this part of the world. We never used to pick 'horses for courses' back in our glory days so I'm not sure why we do now - the best players are the best players anywhere in the world. 

 

A draw would have felt like a win for our guys (although I'm glad Paine didn't admit that) and maybe we can use this momentum into the second Test. Although, make no mistake, we were outplayed for over three days.

 

I rate Mitch Marsh as an all-rounder, but all-rounders bat at No. 6, and Marsh is not a Test No. 4. For the next Test, surely Renshaw (to replace Labuschagne) comes back in as opener and everyone drops down a spot. Except, Head can stay at 5 and Marsh drops backs to No. 6.

 

I'm glad that I was there to watch that!

One of the great rear-guard actions to salvage a draw. Monumental effort.

Well done Usi.

 

Did I read correctly, his 140 is the highest ever 4th innings score in a Test in Asia? Astounding.

Second most balls face in a 4th innings ever too, 524 balls.
