Shocking call to not enforce the follow on. Very likely cost us the test. Why is this team so fucking scared of the follow on????

haha In all of test cricket history, there have only been 3 times that a side has lost after enforcing the follow on. Guess which country lost in all 3 instances. ;) I give a lot of credit to Babar really. Quality batsman. (y)
Mind you, hold our catches and the conversation may be entirely different.

This has to be the most boring test series I’ve ever watched

Anyone else watching the cricket right now, the Paki batsman, Fawad Alam, whilst the bowler is charging in he is batting virtually facing square leg until the bowler is almost about to bowl the ball

Just need Paul Adams, the frog in a blender, bowling to him and cricket conservatives would be getting transported from the ground in straitjackets.

Wow Pakistan lower order are terrible, they were going so well at 1/170 but they lose 7/20 & all out for 268 now! I was getting concerned this afternoon at only 1 down at the time earlier this afternoon.

It was always a chance of happening once they went through the top order, they have played 5 bowlers knowing they needed extra ammo on a road of a pitch, I still think this will peeter out to a draw, 0-0 3 test match series
