Khawaja is making runs in Asia even. He was one who had amongst the worst record away from home amongst several Aussie players who aren't Steve Smith.

This test looks like being a rerun of Old Trafford 1964. 5 days of pointless run scoring.

Double wicket generation.

Also, never underestimate the ability for UAE pitches to suddenly become minefields on day 5.

Extra proof that not cashing in after scoring 50s is likely to be detrimental to your team.

1 - 3 of Australia's 4 Test debutants in 2018 have recorded ducks in their maiden knock for Australia (Head, Labuschagne & Sayers). Introduction. #PAKvAUS

Considerably more successful than the more experienced Yasir. It doesn't appear that his mysterious new googly - 'the Shahza'? - has had much effect.

A huge effort from the middle order. 4 wickets, 19 runs. We could put Siddle and Starc in the middle order of this line up and lose nothing. We would possibly be better off.

It's hard to fathom why he hasn't been in the wickets yet. Could be that he had played his last Test a year ago. Needs more overs?

After 28 test matches Mitchell Marsh has a batting average of 27.85. Surely it is apparent by now that he would be very useful batting at 8 (if his bowling was good enough, but it isn't) but shouldn't be near a top 6. Yet he gets promoted to 4 and gains the vice captaincy. Tough times to be an Aussie supporter lol.

That's a truly marvellous calypso collapso. Effectively all out for 60 having been 142-0.

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.

He is to be roundly congratulated.
And to do all that while standing at square leg ... top stuff.

Well that was some turn around. Seems only the openers heeded the new coaches instructions.

Couldn't agree more - Aussie Cricket really is the gift that keeps on giving at the mo.

That's also the 14th time since 2010 that Australia have lost 10 wickets for less than a 100. For perspective, England and SA have done it 6 tmes in the same period.

Pakistan being 7th reinforces my point - they are incredibly tough to beat in the UAE and the ranking weighting means teams losing there get their rating hammered for it.

I'm sure I've heard this about another international team on these boards, more the top order though!

Away wins in tests is becoming an increasing rarity. There really is very little between all the teams at the moment so home advantage become massive.
