    Why bat twice when you can bat once and also completely eliminate the chance of having to bat last on a minefield?

    And here we go. Remind me to never accuse Pakistani posters of being so pessimistic all the time.

    He has rubbish batsmen which is why Aus is not doing well. If he had a better team it would pay off. Smith on the other hand has the best team in the world and yet I haven't seen many that are as risk averse as him.

    And they're number 1.
    Are you from the Ian Chappel school of captaincy in which only attacking captaincy is good captaincy? While Smith can play it too safe on occasion, in this case he's won the game anyway, just making sure they don't have to bat last

    And Smith has to trust his bowlers to do the job in 3 days? while they may only need one... Keeping Pak on the field is the most dominating thing he could have done.

    Thing is Australia might actually need 3 days.

    Doesn't make any sense Agent. Smith clearly said that the pitch is still dry and he wanted to bat as long as the pitch becomes very bowler friendly. Though they couldn't execute it today, it was the right and sensible decision by him.

    I think Hafeez is really feeling impressed with himself... Pak may as well have played him so he could bowl a bit.

    why the **** would you risk something when you don't need to? That's not good captaincy, that's ****ing stupid.

    "Generous" declarations are stupid unless it's the last day of the test and you need a win to take the series.

    Lol, what risk are you talking about. This isn't England, it's Pakistan. Have you not seen the score?
