*Official* Australia in Pakistan 2022

If he is tonning up, you are already in trouble.
Pakistan are Looking at batting a guy with a fc average of 14 and picking basically the same pace attack that got murdered by warner and marnus last time we played. If pak go for the 2 spinner route on this surface i'de even back harris/mitch marsh to score big.

Would be hysterical if smudge is still concussed and can't make the first test, his replacment's are harris/marsh, talk about a horrible downgrade.

Harris can then open and Khawaja can bat 4.

We don't know how it would go though

The Ind-Sl match starts an hour early before this one and my WillowTv will most definitely show that...I was really looking forward to watching this match on my Willow

Thank you so much mate. We are fine. I hope the same for you and yours. Ironically, Brisbane is actually locked down today - stay at home orders in place - because of the weather rather than COVID haha

When was the last time we won the toss against Pakistan in Asia? Feels like an eternity….

Really looking forward to watching Babar batting here.

Also, is Shaheen Shah Afridi 21 in the same way Aaqib Javed was 16 when he toured here then 19 when he returned a year later?

Dunno if it applies to Shaheen but it definitely applies to Naseem.

Pakistan won the toss and will bat.
Could be huge if anything like UAE pitches

That guy is supposed to be 21? That's about as believable as Rashid Khan's age, or the "16 year old" that toured Aus a couple years ago

If he claimed 24 I might believe him

Batting first is definitely an advantage. Only two seamers and Naseem opening, oooof. But worry not, we have a 35 year old SLA ready to rock as is tradition.

Afridi is definitely 21, wtf nothing like Rashid Khan. Naseem is clearly older though.

lol Naseem's playing. 3 spinners for Pak too. Didn't even realise they had 3 Test-quality spinners to pick from, but there you go.
