Square Leg Umpire has a lot to answer for!!
It was an odd comparison anyway. Pakistan batted for 91 fewer overs than Australia in 1964, scoring 174 fewer runs. More importantly, this current Test is the series opener, so everything to play for. In 1964, Australia were 1-0 up and needing only a draw to retain the Ashes...so, their painstakingly protracted innings was far from pointless.
