    A good start to the tour for some tested Australians, but it was the veteran Warne who would crash with six wickets. Some supurb bowling by part-timer North would also hold down the tail, but the middle ordcer got KW to a respectable score of 263.

    A disappointing start to the opening order held together by an impressive, although defensive, display by North and a beautiful century by Katich. The middle order in Symonds and Clarke fell in succession, but a solid fifty by Bradley Haddin was impressive.

    A solid effort by the county side, holding off a strong attack of Australia. Warne solid again completing a ten for, and the others chipped in. Bin Nasir was again a thorn with yet another century, but the rest (bar Raza) weren't impressive enough to warrant Pakistan selection.

    A bit of a nothing innings here, with Ponting the only person looking half good. North again just fell short of a slow half century as he looked shaky in the forties. A good solid effort though.

    Match Drawn
    Man of the match: S Bin nasir
    **********************************************
    Final word: I was very impressed with Simon Katich and to an extent Bradley Haddin, who looked like he could make a good one day addition. Most others didn't impress, apart from Marcus North, although I wait to see what he does in tests. A solid effort from a young side with Warne leading the charge. If Bin Nasir is picked, he will continue to be troublesome.

    likewise with Ferd just wondering about some of your selections.

    At the start of the game Clarke and North are still nothing special. and Stuart Karpinnen?? wat the ****??

    and not taking either of the Waugh's is quite an odd move and you've probably got a bowler to many.

    When i go to Pak i usually take this squad - Hayden, Langer, Hussey, Ponting, Waugh (S), Waugh (M), Martyn, Gilchrist, Warne, MacGill, McGrath, Gillespie, Lee, Inness and Bichel with one day additions of Bevan, Symonds/Harvey, Dale.

    Sometimes i put in Lehmann or Hodge in place of Hussey or Martyn. With the bowlers i might sometimes take Bracken or Kasprowicz in place of Inness or Bichel. And i might take a second keeper (i usually just live with Langer as second keeper)

    Well, I see where you are coming from, but after a couple of years of coaching, Clarke comes good.

    And, since I have already done 3 matches (one test) I am not regretting taking North, but I am regretting taking one too many bowlers.

    I took Karpinnen just as a trial as he had best first class average, so we will se how we go.

    After winning the toss and electing to bat, we got off to a very good start. Hayden smashing his way to 237 starred as Symonds held the bottom order together with a great 122. North was solid again, but just fell short as Clarke again was unimpressive.

    **********************************************
    With Rawalpindi requiring 328 to avoid the follow on, Hussain and Saeed got them off to the perfect start. Only bowling four bowlers, Warne would take the opening wicket with a beautifully made wrongun'. Warne starred as he dismantled the innings with five wickets, a great follow on from his last match. Bracken was not costly, but wasn't very effective as MacGill and McGrath supported well. Rawalpindi couldn't do enough to avoid the follow on.

    **********************************************
    Nobody really shon at all for Rawalpindi, only Ghufran (43*) was impressive, and he didn't bat long enough to go places as Warne took out the middle and bottom order with another five for (5/68) MacGill was solid with 4/105, but still exprensive. Bracken and McGrath weren't given much on a pitch had for pace so they didn't perform.
    **********************************************
    Australia won by an innings and 13 runs
    Man of the match: M Hayden
    **********************************************
    The Final Word: A solid performance as North was solid and Hayden was amazing. Symonds was good, but I just feel that wont carry into the test, but it will remain to be seen. Australia may show some weakness with captain Steven Waugh out with a fracture, and they better hope no injuries come about. A solid effort though, but I think the selectors wont have too much trouble selecting the side.

    A solid first innings from the Aussies with three test debuts in North, Symonds and stand in keeper North, Gilchrist out with a cold. North scored his maiden test ton in a great start to his career while Symonds and Haddin weren't impressive. The Pakistan bowlers spread the wickets around meaning bad signs for the Aussies. Ponting put on a half century while others had trouble scoring.

    The Aussies would spread the wickets around as two spin bowlers helped themselves to wickets on a spin comforting pitch. Symonds was surprisingly good with two wickets, allthough was overused. Saeed Anwar was a thorn along with Younis Khan, but a solid bowling effort.

    A blow for the Aussies as Hayden went down with a fractured toe, but continued his innings to go at 154. He will miss three weeks though. Symonds and Langer were very good as Symonds put up a good showing, but Haddin did nothing to give himself a spot in the test team. Raza demolished us and will be trouble in the second test, but 417 sets a good total, but can the bowlers handle it?

    The bowlers didn't go too well, a bonus was as centurian in the first Anwar was dismissed early. Khan went on though to make a huge unbeaten total as Warne and MacGill were hit. Too many overs again by the spinners, and Lee should have been given more overs instead of Warne.
    **********************************************
    Pakistan won by 3 wickets
    Man of the match: Y Khan
    **********************************************
    The Bottom Line: Look, the bowlers were out of touch, and Warne wasn't inspiring. If it came to keeping just one spinner, MacGill would be the go on form. Haddin will be dropped, and Hayden is a big loss and someone is set to debut next week. Will the Aussie go with four bowlers and an all rounder in Harvey or Clarke? We will wait and see...
