    Best shot Ponting has played all summer. Imperious.

    Not sure about that, Watson's always struck me as an all or nothing batsman.

    Yeah lots of checked drives, hopefully one of these guys goes on because on this deck, getting started would be bloody tough. Bit two-paced.

    It's hard to get a good read on how this pitch is playing. It looks very two paced and bounce is slightly odd. But we have a badly out of form Ponting at the crease and one of Australia's worst players of spin bowling in Haddin batting.

    That's out. Ponting is truly on his last legs it seems. I would back Tim Paine over Ponting right now he is that out of touch.

    That's an absolutely dire decision by Marais. That deviated by atleast 30-40% from the bat. FFS Akmal caught one!

    Ridiculous pushing and pulling.

    Ponting should've walked imho. That is almost equivalent of edging one to the slips and standing ground. Pathetic cricket.

    Seriously, what was that about? Haddin almost punched a Pakistan player in the face. And a huge dressing down of the Pakistan team by Tony Hill, I think.

    Always the toughest caught behind decisions to make. So much happens with the caught from the cut shot. You get the merging of sound/view of ball hitting bat and hitting glove in a split instance, along with no real view of the deviation from the bat.

    But they've got away to few flyers this tournament, as you'd expect with those two opening. Clearly a strategy to build a steady platform, average only around 47 off the first 10, pretty un-Australia like. Probably more to do with Haddin than Watson, who is promoted to opener with the purpose presumably of getting them away to a healthy start. If not by crashing boundaries, then by strike rotation.

    Goodness. Shouldn't feel so nervous about things at 2/78, but this looks hairy.
