    Re: Test squad for Pakistan series

    It’s really impressive to see how he has applied himself in recent times, and he seems to have improved a great deal to spin.
    I’m still waiting to see how he handles the swinging ball in England next time - but he’s having a terrific test.

    If we get through today - its the gutsiest day of cricket Australia has played in a while.

    Complete change in how he goes about it. Deep in the crease, soft hands and plays in his areas. Very similar to Damien Martyn's strategy.

    Paine also playing a patient innings. This is a gutsy effort so far.

    Awesome draw. As good as a win to bat 140 overs in the 4th innings.

    Great result for Australia. Fought themselves out of a hole. Great match for Khawaja.

    Fantastic result. So pleased for Tim Paine. Well done to Usman for a great knock.

    Wonderful gritty effort . Kudos to Usman and a great skippers knock from Tim Paine
    I actually like our side without the attack dog bogan Warner

    Tick to the selectors for picking Finch, who performed well.

    Great to see Khawaja make runs overseas. From memory he was left off the tour entirely the last time we played a team from the sub-continent in an away series.

    We have Pakistan 4 down for 57. Lyon has 3 wickets

    And another wicket falls to Lyon. I think it's been 4 wickets in 6 deliveries

    Not sure why we've been so defensive. Let this partnership get away from us
