Pakis won the toss and elected to bat first and have actually put some runs on the board. Youhanna the Captain scoring a century.

Stumps Pak: 6/318

At one stage they were 3/286 and looking good for a big score. Then warne made the break through just before the new ball with which Dizzy claimed 2 more before stumps to put the aussies back in it.

Another good note is that the pakis scored at more than 3.5 an over - makes for good cricket.

and Clarke got the ball before lehmann which should make some people happy (figures were crap though, 0/24 off 3. Lehmann wasnt much better at 0/13 off 2)

The match is fairly even after day 2 . I still can't believe Pakistan were paying $11 to win the test match . They were $14 a few days prior to Xmas. Those odds are ridiculous in a 2 team contest & Pakistan are ranked # 3 as a test playing nation . I had to put some money on them at 11/1. I know it's unAustralian to back against the Aussies , but hey , Lillee & Marsh seemed to think it was ok a few years back.
