Kerry O'Keefe and Shane Warne talking about research that seems to show testosterone is 40% higher when playing at home and then this British chick says so what happens when women play here. This was followed by a prolonged silence. The comment was so out of place for the conversation.

Did someone tell her that women have testosterone as well?

Australia should just change it's team name to 'Smith & Friends'. Has a national team ever been carried so hard by one player?

People who wanted his punishment to be longer should just choke on a hot dog. He's a generational talent.

No team has ever won a Test match without taking 20 wickets.

Smith is an unrivalled batting powerhouse, but our bowlers as a unit have been tremendous for a number of seasons now and deserve plenty of credit for our results.

Your point is valid BUT there are MANY examples of teams winning without taking 20 wickets, be it declarations or injuries involved.

They should let Vaughan run the post match show, I can’t watch these two.

Solid day, they weren’t on top of their game in the 1st session but didn’t let it get away. Let’s go Burns.

Our current pace trio will be remembered as an all time great line up by the time they're done I reckon.

Cummins will possibly be the best pace bowler Australia has ever had. Hazlewood, Starc, Pattinson, Meredith, Tremain, Richardson, Neser, Sayers, Green, Steketee, Copeland, Conway, Winter, Bird - That has to be all time depth!

All time? Depth? Great results?

We have won one Test series in the last two years!

Pakistan showed a good first session and then they Pakistan'd it up. Abbar is the most disappointing- he calls constantly for not just averaging 50 in ODI and 20/20 and seems to think he is potentially the equal of Smith, Kohli and Williamson but then has that slash when his team had lost 3/4.

Thought Australia bowled well in the first session but after lunch they were just a bit fuller and Pakistan knicked them.

Very good team bowling, no big hauls just everyone chips in and gets their two or three.

Best thing to happen to Australia was not having to bat last night, two or three overs last night could have been terrible and Burns and Warner were clapping out there and laughing once the time had lapsed.

Bowlers looked after them too bowling wide so they didn't take a wicket.

I didn't express it that clearly perhaps but I was saying that the bowlers have delivered a great result as a unit in my opinion. Granted it hasn't translated to a great result in the win column enough, but we just aren't scoring enough runs right now to help them out.

I'd stop well short of calling them the best of all time, but they are a pretty strong bowling unit overall and they do possess some great bowling depth. We may in fact have the best bowling depth of any Test side right now.

Our batting depth on the other hand...
