Wow, Usman Khawaja has always had the talent but lacked depth, he certanly seemed to have found it against Pakistan, now hopefully he can now channel that depth to some of his teammates, the Marsh Bros would be a good start....... A draw was salvaged but under the circumstances it was almost as good as a win, bring it on.

There needs to be a serious look at why the players can't get their minds in the right space. ;) Oh that's right, Cricket Australia has abandoned the Sheffield Cup for chasing $$$$ from that stupid 20 an over game, instead of fostering talent in the local comp around the country. :idiot:s

The pakies came back after those shock quick dismissals from Gary to score all out for 282..
The Aussies are in trouble in their first innings at 7 for 128..

Gary's good work was let down by Australia's poor batting once more..

despite their actions and peoples views on it. with arguably our 3 best players doing the rounds on the local scene, and ultimately we dont have the outright talent like we did in the warne, gillie, symonds, langer, hayden, ponting, the waugh brothers, dizzy, mcgrath and so forth were playing.

i think cricket australia needs to have a good look at itself and decide whether longevity of the game or quick cash is the key to success.

Needs to show consistency over a longer period of time. Try him in the short form of the game but I won't be rushing him into five day Test matches. ;)

Agree, the list of young guns that had excellent ability in club and shield that lasted only a short time in representing AU has grown significantly in the last few years. Pressure.

The Ashes have started over in England and what a start Steve Smith is having..

Wow what a player..
1st innings scoring a test ton
2nd innings smashing another test century, 144...

One of the world's greatest batsman..

He's tarnished and that should never be forgotten and shouldn't be spoken in the same regard as the other high achievers.

2 great performances under extreme pressure.
That was a very hostile crowd that still booed him even after his 2nd successive ton.
Really stood up and saved the match off his own bat.

Warnie's a drug cheat.

But we still love him.

Warner is the turd in the group.
You forgot a wan.ker also.

Not forgiven but on the same road. He certainly could give lessons to those that can't handle booing when they have brought it on themselves.

Poms are still trying hard to take Smiths head off in the 4th test and he is still resisting. Warner has failed again, it may have been better to drop him and keep khawaja in.
