That makes more sense. Cricinfo was showing it as Finch.

If Abbas keeps going the way he's going, his bowling average will soon be below his batting average.

Fair to say that Pakistan total is looking rather more than competitive, the Sarfraz counter attack looking the key moment of the match.

Another display of great lineage from the Marsh Brothers!!

It was going so well for Australia until the 22nd over of the Pakistan innings then it all went pear shaped. At least they should get passed the follow on total.

Ironically Labuschagne, who has otherwise had a great match, may have dealt the killing blow to Aussie chances by dropping Fakhar.

Although he has just produced a beautiful piece of schoolboy cricket to get run out (not having his bat grounded despite it being comfortably over the line). I like this fella, seems to be able to flick between sublime and ridiculous at the drop of a switch.

Abbas looks a class act to me - not particularly quick but gets good movement and very accurate - a clever bowler

Although Labuschagne's run out now looks utterly rubbish compared to Azhar Ali's. Kind of similar to Bell's, he thinks he's hit a 4 through gulley, but the ball doesn't quite reach the rope, he doesn't bother running and is having a chat mid pitch with his partner when the ball is thrown back by Starc and Paine whips off the bails.

Think we need an Ian Bell Pretty Little Run Out Thread!!

Devious Aussies throwing the ball back in when it looked like it had crossed the rope but had actually stopped a yard short. Lol.

Some combination, I guess, of wanting more runs and wanting to wait longer before putting Australia back in.

Why do they need to? There are still 8 sessions left in the match. 370 isn't the largest total ever needed. Bat them into the ground, gain a lead of over 500 and leave yourself a little over 2 days.

They've scored 50 in 8 overs since lunch, looks like they want to get the game moving!

I'm surprised that you got sucked in by that post from Ali, I suspect he had another target in his crosshairs than you.
