It's going to take the next CEO of CA a long time to undo Sutherland's mess. Giving Shield cricket prominence as the premier domestic format would be a huge start.
Should be number 1 priority and action should be taken immediately to get it done. But unfortunately the $$ signs have blinded CA from what’s important in the game.

Unfortunately this test outfit could get worse with Lehmann suggesting D’Arcy Short and Chris Lynn as rest bolters. We need players who can build an innings - get Renshaw back in the team next test and have Usman at 3 for a start. Use the start of the shield to see who’s in form as a long form cricketer.

Australian cricket is suffering from its own arrogance and scheduling. They have treated sheiks cricket and the one day cup as second class citizens for a twenty/20 cash grab and we and no longer producing a production line of quality players. Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne as test cricketers is a joke.
And if you watched Fox Sports news yesterday they were acting as if Labuschagne was going to be the next Shane Warne /Ricky Ponting :roll

Hope the squad has been working on its rain dances , they are going to need it and lots of it
There was some pretty awful attempts to play spin bowling from the Aust batsman.

Many juniors aren't taught how to play spin bowling correctly these days. There is nothing better than watching a batsman with good footwork get to the pitch of the ball and drive for runs.

I'm not really following Cricket much after the South African tour.
Just having sideways glimpses at the score. Not really fussed if we win or loose. South Africa really got into our heads and exposed underlying problems in our culture which is part of cricket. I get that. We don't have a good platform on which to build on yet. New guys coming are needed. I can see why fox sports are taking up new spinners ect.
in Ivan we distrust

Marsh Brothers firing

0/38 from 10 overs

1 catch

1 dropped catch that cost us around 70 odd runs from memory

19 runs between them in 4 innings

Boys making a fair fist of the run chase

Lot closer than I thought they'd get

Good to see Khawaja getting a few , 10 more Qlders and we probably win

Well 2 less Marshes for a start might help

With one session left i can only say that Khawaja has had a fantastic game.To be on the field under oppressive heat for over 4 days and play 2 quality innings is an excellent performance.
Hopefully a draw can be salvaged in a game in which we never looked a chance mainly due to his efforts with the bat

He has had a reputation to be a bit soft - maybe this test is showing that’s not the case. Good on him.

Surely we name both Marshes we get an automatic 100 run bonus or we get to pick another player to play as well

No way they will get that many in. Once their is an hour to go on the set times you can bowl 15 overs or to offical stumps.

Usman has been on of my favourite players since I first saw him for nsw in the shield. Great cricketer who has had ups and downs but still has many years left in Australian colours. Has shown his worth in this match no matter what happens.

The Pakistanis will bowl the majority of it out , one wicket and we are hanging by a thread again

Pakistan win is still the favourite at this point, not enough bat in the tail.
