Yep very solid, seemed to really dig in and graft in the first 2 sessions.

Just watched the highlights, slightly worrying that the Kiwi's seemed to figure out Sibley about an hour into his innings. Switched their attack to outside the off-stump, until he knicked it. Don't think he will see much at aimed at his stumps/pads for the rest of the short series

Pakistan all out 240. Australia yet to bat. Stumps.

PS. Did anyone mention that Australia holds the Ashes?

Good knocks from all except Root so that's good to see. 

Hopefully not the usual collapse on day 2

The Aussies are 5 for 532, a lead of 292 at tea. The Pakistan team need a break.

They got one with Smith out for 4.

Watched the England game up until lunch,sloppy fielding & missed catches along with some strange decisions from Root so not surprised to see the Kiwis in the lead.

Looks like a draw.

Barring a major collapse I agree. 

Winner takes all in the 2nd test.

Not looking good now. 

Our problem is we play too much white ball cricket during the best 3 months of the year, where pitches favour the batters and Red ball cricket at the months it favours the bowlers so batsmen don't get enough time at the crease. 

And the national side is paying the price.

It doesn't seem to bother other sides.

When was the last time we scored 400+?

End of the day we ain't got the quality and our season is not helping us.

Rubbish. 

Root has been shite since becoming captain, average has plummeted. 

Same old England, tale of two innings.

From Wisden:

The last time England scored 400 in their first innings of a Test?

December 16th, 2017.

They still lost that Test by an innings and 41 runs.

For those who believe Cheats should never prosper, you are going to be disappointed. Unfortunately David Warner has just scored 335 not out. Admittedly it was against a very pedestrian Pakistan attack, but, nevertheless, there it is

Pity he was such a flop during the Ashes tour.
