    Lot of movement available, Shaheen has wasted 2 overs

    Hasan is probably most natural bowling fuller

    KP was saying before the game that there won't be much swing because of the cold. Apparently, the wicket would be more conducive for seam.

    Dont think bowling first is a poor decision. Amir has shown why it was a good decision. It's just that Shaheen has bowled appalling lengths.

    If Pakistan donít take more than 2 wickets in the first 10-12 overs then Australia are going to score a big one here. The bowlers need to make the most of these conditions early on.

    The one game I wanted Shaheen to play was against India at Old Trafford, where the length he bowls with his height works . . bounciest pitch in England! . . So I really hope he comes back well . . needs to learn what lenghts to bowl on what pitches . . bowled full in SA and got rewarded!

    But fans here were begging for Shaheen and Hasnain to be fast-tracked into international cricket despite no domestic experience.

    This fast-tracking must stop, these youngsters must prove themselves in domestic cricket first.

    Whose brilliant idea was it to go with Shaheen instead of Shadab? Even if the wicket is green, it was all over the news that this venue suits spinners. Plus he can bat too. And don't tell me that Australia went with the same strategy. Pace is Pakistan's weakness, whereas spin is Australia's.

    No movement so far, no pace from the pitch.

    Overcast conditions aside, this looks like a pretty decent batting pitch

    It looked like a good decision before we saw Shaheen actually bowling. Aussies play leg spin pretty well, and there was something in this pitch with the new ball if the bowler can actually pitch in the danger areas.

    Will miss Shadab's fielding, bowling and batting here.

    Shaheen has given 24 runs in two overs. Even if he bowls last 8 for 40 runs, he weill go for 64 runs in 10. Shahdab would have done a better job I reckon.

    No it didn't. You need to weigh the risks of playing a pacer who has been in terrible form lately vs an all-round spinner who had a good last game. Plus, as the saying goes, you don't change a winning combination.

    Like I said, Hasnain should have played today...no idea why Shadab is not playing either, are 4 fast bowlers really needed.

    I think Riaz will be just as expensive also.

    Sad to see Shaheen no longer using the fuller length which made him so good.

    Half of these deliveries have been played with zero conviction.

    Opening with Shaheen has cost us here.

    Junaid would have been far better than Shaheen

    Why play 4 fast bowlers? 3 is enough even if its grey. Bad decision.

    Shaheen has given 24 runs in two overs. Even if he bowls last 8 for 40 runs, he weill go for 64 runs in 10. Shahdab would have done a better job I reckon.
    There was no need to change the line up. If 3 bowlers wont get a wicket 4th pacers not much a difference. But lets see and hope he will deliver. Shaheen beta will come back.

    Lol @ everyone who wanted Shaheen to be included. He has had a horrid tour so far. Shown no potential.
