    And perhaps also the reason Pakistan won't get Australia all out. Australia were never going to chase this, but they can easily draw it now.

    It seems negative batting costed this match. 15-20 extra overs would have been enough.

    Australia did not take the new ball when it was due and it made it difficult to score runs freely. Despite that Pakistan has done well to stamp their dominance on the Australian attack, this will set the tone for the rest of the series.
    What Australian Attack? Plus you conveniently forgot that Warner Smith and Maxwell were not playing this game and if it was for them then this result would have been in favour of Australia 🇦🇺

    Come on a buffet. If 150 overs weren’t enough then who are we to make assumptions?

    Fact is both Pakistan and Australia showed remarkable temperament in this test which the current Indian test team seems so incapable of.

    Can you imagine India drawing this test from the same situation?

    I tend to agree that 140 overs should have been enough to bowl out opposition in 4th inning. I also don't see current Indian team lasting 140 overs to save a match.

    I don't recall any Aus team in past doing it for 140 overs. Some one can dig up stats, I am just going by what I remember. It was an special effort from Aus team without having their two main batsmen.

    I really wish to see this side of Indian batting. In 4th winning they simply don't show the nerves and temperament to bat out long. Is it a mental issue or ability?

    Most UAE curators are Indians. But it's a mystery why don't get to see their art of making exciting Day 5 Test matches. ICC should look into banning UAE pitches for being boring and unsuitable for Test cricket.

    You do have to play less shots and check your natural instinct. I would say it's more mental than anything else. Individually, Indian players have done it time to time, but collectively I don't recall them doing it in recent years.

    But Pakistan didn't do it in fourth innings. What's so special about Pakistan batting for ~160 overs in first innings in this game?

    India can dead bat endlessly on day 1 and 2. In fact, in the last game India declared after batting for 150 overs. India batted for 180+ overs against England when Jayant Yadav made a century. And then 190+ overs when Karun Nair made a triple century. ~180 overs twice against SL November last year.

    If anything, we need to learn from the Aussie bats. The dead batting shouldn’t be done in the 1st innings. 3rf or 4th innings makes sense.

    West Indian tailenders have done some amazing stonewalling. Better than some top teams. Temperament alone won’t get you anywhere in testing condition. Pujara has a far superior temperament. He would have batted for 2 days on these track.

    Given that 11 real Pakistanis in the game did not show the same temperament, I would attribute it more to Khwaja's Aussie upbringing.

    Yes all batsmen around the world should scoop a ball to long-off after not being able to score runs on patta after playing 100 balls.

    I agree. Imagine Pakistan AO for 350 odd runs scoring at over 3 RPO.

    Teams are losing more today than they did in past because playing fast has ensured there are hardly any draws. A drawn test is an essential part of the game IMO.

    Tempremeant isn't dead batting every single ball. Tempremeant is batting for a period of time , seeing off the good balls and making sure any looses balls are put away.

    Most great test batsmen were able to bat for long periods but still maintain a healthy strike rate. Without even watching Sunil bat I am almost certain that he would have put loose balls away and still show a strong defence .

    Indian batsmen don't need to learn from Pakistan batsmen. We need to learn from Indian batsmen.

    KL Rahul can learn from this. He needs to grind out because most of the times I see him he tries to dominate opposition and end up costing his wicket.

    In My opinion Indian batting could have done with this kind of batting in England where Pakistan just looked to put 350 on board at all cost! on these kind of tracks they will be allright and probably do better than Pakistan batting against this NZ bowling line up.
