    I guess being demoted to a 2 Test series for the first time since WSC shows where they're at in Australian cricket.

    If there's one thing CW does poorly, it's declaration chat.

    This is a Test Championship series, yes? 2-0 earns more than 1-0. Dum dum scoring 400 earns nothing. It's a team sport. There's rain forecast. And you're not allowed to revise your declaration once Pakistan are 90-6. Absolute no brainers.

    Our sport does not need Warner as its pinnacle of batting achievement either.

    scoring 400 probably requires a selfish sacrifice of the team anyway. Lara showed that.

    100% agree that Warner holding the record would leave everyone a but flat

    Mohammed Abbas is basically a fitter version of Praveen Kumar. Also relatively more lethal in English conditions.

    More inexcusable than bad bowling is the utter lack of fight with the bat by Pakistan. 6/96 after the other side only lost 3 wickets before declaring for around 600 is completely terrible. It shows an utter lack of fight.

    These Pakistan players all seem to be nice blokes from what I can tell which makes it even more painful to watch. Other than Babar no one has stood up and put any fight up. Some of the dismissals last night were to simply awful shots.

    Brilliant declaration by Paine though.

    Tbqh seeing the 400 beaten would be infinitely more exciting and memorable than another home test win against Pakistan

    You're missing the forest for the trees Daemon

    And no, I don't care about the WTC

    Let's be honest though rain is probably the most likely thing that will push this Test beyond 3 days.
    citoyens, vouliez-vous une révolution sans révolution?

    those nights were on fire
    we couldn't get higher
    we didn't know that we had it all
    but no one warns you before the fall

    The weather forecast has improved and it looks more likely there will be a lot of play today. I was probably too pessimistic about what was going to happen.

    Its this weak attitude that typifies NZ that prevented Martin Crowe from getting 300 all those years ago and this attitude that made it so it would be Brendon McCullum as the pinnacle of NZ batting achievement.

    Don't be fooled by it folks.

    I personally feel like saying the same about Bradman and Hayden.

    Can anyone translate this to common sense for me please.

    There is no sport that has a ****wit like Warner as its pinnacle, that I know of. Thank god it didn't come to pass.

    😂

    By the way, Crowe nicked out on 299 trying to run Ranatunga down, under no time pressure at all. Just in case it comes up in a quiz.
