    Yes they are very weak but lets be honest Pakistani batting line up is very shaky and you never know we might end up losing if we are unable to handle Lyon

    Yes.
    Batting line is definitely the weakest
    Khawaja is a walking wicket against spin
    Finch,Head,Labuschange all average in mid 30s in FC cricket

    Mitch Marsh has been poor in tests,only good performance he gave was in Ashes the previous summer
    He won't average more than 20

    Shaun Marsh has also been in & out of the team
    He has good record in Asia compared to other Aussie batsmen in recent times but failed in India
    I don't think he will be able to stand up against Yasir

    Pak will humiliate these newbies
    Paine will resign from captaincy
    Couple of Aussies in this team would be considered among their worst test cricketers ever

    BD won against a much stronger Aus team.

    Smith, Warner, Maxwell, Renshaw, Wade, Hazlewood, Cummins, Lyon all played in that match.

    Yes very weak especially in Asian conditions, this team will still deliver thumpings to all bar SA on Aussie decks. I expect Pakistan to shatter some records in these 2 tests, massive innings victories coming up.

    If not the weakest, it's one of the weakest Aus line up against Pakistan.

    Even if it's a weaker Australian team would still expect them to score big as they will only have to see off Abbas and Yasir otherwise the rest of Pakistan's bowling line-up is really weak.... Bilal Asif looks mediocre, Hafeez struggles without resorting to chucking and Wahab is a spattergun who only has one talent bowling fast without direction or plan.

    Well there is no doubt this team is a joke of a team compared to the sides which had the likes of Ponting, Hayden, McGrath, Warne just to name a few but cricket isn't played on paper.

    Pakistan battered the Aussies with those 2 PLUS Clarke with JOhnson in the bowling line up as well.

    So your point was?

    Factually, Australia's two highest rated Test bowlers (Cummins and Hazelwood) and two highest rated Test batsmen (Smith and Warner) are missing. So this is a pretty weak Australian team.

    Finch will fill the attacking role that Warner plays. And his defence is better than Warner. Do not know why he avoided tests - pay/fitness etc. - all these days. And the lower order of Australia seem as capable as Eng. Only thing that Pak could think of is pitch deterioration - for spinners - which is what they would have hoped at the toss.

    It's weird watching Siddle trundle at 128 kph. He used to bowl every ball at 140+ at one point.
