I can't see Australia changing too much but Pakistan have to bring in Abbas.

I wouldn't mind one of Pattinson/Neser/Richardson giving Cummins a break, and have him ready to go for NZ. He's played a lot of cricket recently. I think Neser could cause some carnage with the pink ball.

And if later on the MCG is another highway i'd probably rest Cummins (and Hazlewood) again there too and play 2 of the above with Starc, I don't see the point of having the two big guns banging it in there.

Yeah, I agree with 1910 about Abbas. He needs to come in for Imran and open the bowling with the new pink ball.

Smith (6977 runs) 20 runs to go past Bradman (6996) and 23 runs till 7000. He'd be the fastest to reach 7000 in 70 Tests.

Bradman did it in 52 Tests.

Annnnnd, Paine has declared.
Not sure why they want to bowl now with the sun up... get in there after dinner break with the sun down and the pink ball moving everywhere.

They could take 10 wickets in a session with a new pink ball at night.

Time will tell but I feel like you're giving Pakistan a break by using the new ball while the sun is still up.

If they have 600 on the board you should only be looking to bat once and the Pakistan first innings starts under lights... also have to consider when the next new ball is due and at this stage 80 overs will fall 30-60mins before the dinner break tomorrow (pending rain).

It's like they don't want to bowl with the newy under lights... seems crazy to me

Give them 10 minutes to get ready and have them two down at tea against a completely rested attack.

I get the rest, but there was still 25mins when they started their innings so that's probably 5-6 overs of the new ball in the sun rather than it being under lights.

Will the last session run till 10pm to make up for lost overs like yesterday??

I reckon they could've got them 5-7 down in a session with the new ball under lights, but we will see

FWIW I'm not saying to hold back the declaration for Warner to get runs I'm suggesting to hold back purely for the best bowling conditions
