    After a cracking result in the second innings of the Dubai Test we will no doubt be looking to build on the momentum. There's talk of Bilal Asif and Wahab Riaz making was for Pakistan while Jon Holland will be hoping the pitch isn't too green which could see him replaced in the side by Michael Neser.

    I don’t think Australia will change their side. No need for another medium pacer when we have that gun Mitch Marsh in the side!

    The green grass will be stripped bare and it will be another flat wicket.

    Yeah I was wondering why we were talking about more quicks and then I found out the pitch was green tinged, I guess Pakistan figured we usually like to name our side a month before the toss so we might pick three quicks before the pitch gets stripped bare.

    I hope we don't get sucked in by the look of the wicket. it'll probably be dead, dry and dusty halfway through day 2.

    On the MMarsh thing, is he 100% bowling fit? I have a feeling he isn't but I don't have any evidence to back it up.

    Looks to have strabismus too.

    Has Paine actually won a toss as captain? Maybe should consider if he's just unlucky or going about the process wrong.

    See I don't understand why we would advertise our lineup in advance unless we were obliged to. Why telegraph such details to the opposition before it's necessary?

    Carlo Ancelotti did the same thing at Chelsea many times, including advertising that a rookie defender (Jeffrey Bruma) would be starting. Of course, the opposition planned accordingly and gave the rookie defender a torrid time.

    Looks like he can watch the ball and the scoreboard at the same time.

    That fourth innings was one of the better responses I've seen from an Australian side in a couple of years. Credit where it's due.

    After the middle order showed their class at 4 and 5 for sure. Hate to know what we will get if our openers fail

    We really need starc to lift here, we can't afford so many mediocre opening spells while we wait for the ball to reverse.

    Have to give the people at Cricket Australia media something to write about to justify their jobs.

    Heh, I would just feed the opposition half-truths or ambiguous information.

    "Well we might consider this guy under these circumstances, but then again we might not."

    "We could play this guy at #4, but really I couldn't say for sure."
