Yes it is far from ideal heading into 2010.
But when you are bowled out for 127 runs, a team making 250, which is not ideally a good score in Test cricket, will still create a fairly daunting task to edge ahead in the game.
Pakistan now have the 200 run lead with one wicket in the bag. As always I have hope as the wicket has become a better one to bat upon, but it will be very, very difficult to get back into this game.
The centurion drought has to end rapidly for the top 6 batsmen, as we will need one centurion to rise to this occassion, okay probably two.
Phillip Hughes has a massive opportunity now and the guys who are struggling to get settled are in a really challenging situation!
The bowlers tried, the opposition have ease to get the lead with two solid partnerships, which Pakistan managed.
See the comments in the previous post as to what has been discussed so far concerning to Test.
