This is too good to pass up. Pakis are masters in the middle east conditions and Aussies looked very sluggish against the Afghans a couple of days ago.

Pakistan over Australia @ 2.05

I like it Rod.....however, maybe wait for the toss....

Probbaly Aus 2 best current players are out, Watto and McKay....

McKay has easily been Aus best fast bowler.....

They have dropped Doherty which is strange in the UAE...

They also played at the same ground 2 days ago, was there any hint of spin?

I dont really trust Pakis batting, but there attack is outstanding...maybe wait for the toss

Mackay has been a beast, 
It's amazing how quickly cricket is dying in Aus but with such a useless un likeable team it's not hard to see why. I had no idea this match was on.

I wouldnt say Cricket as a WHOLE is dying, big bash is a massive successwhich brought people who would never had come to a game actually go...

The game tonight is not actually a day night game, its just a night game....because its too hot to play during the day........

Even then the temperature is not expected to drop below 33 degrees

A trial by spin coming up for the Aussies

Anything over 250, and the pakis spin attack will be to much...

Some great matchups for the pakis...

Hafeez against the left hand batters of Wade, Warner at the top of the order...Ajmal against Mike Hussey and Afridi against Clarke, etc..

Baliley, Maxwell and Wade would never have faced an attack like this in those conditions...

It all comes down to the paki batters, i dont trust them at all
