    I wouldn't say we were woeful, We dominated most of the day except for 2 hours

    Average score batting first at this ground is 370 so we are doing okay

    Hopefully we can clean them up for less than 300-320

    Ball isn't turning yet so the first innings for Australia is critical

    5/109 to all out 305 ain't good roughie.

    For me our batting line is tissue paper thin with Maxie being forced to bat at 5. One good thing the wicket looks kinder for batting than the previous test.

    One for the Trivial Pursuit fans. When was the last time Australia played a Test Match with a single fast bowler? Straight away their pace bowlers strike with Renshaw gone for 4!

    They shouldn't have got that many, The partnership (105) between Rahim and Rahman was critical

    The pitch is starting to a bit and it will only get tougher

    To answer your question, It was 1978 they were saying on the coverage

    Aussies on top thanks to Warner, Smith and Handscomb

    Warner and Smith put on a 93 run stand and now these 2 have put on 127

    If we can score 400+ (Who knows what this pitch will be like on day 3) then we have a great chance of winning

    Big difference in the run rates as well, Aussies going at 3.51 and Bangladesh went at 2.69

    Aussies bowled 22 maidens in 113 overs, Bangladesh have bowled just 3 in 64 overs

    Bangladesh hit 23 boundaries and 3 sixes in their 113 overs, We have hit 18 boundaries and no sixes in 64 overs

    Great dews. Tell me roughie who is this Hilton Cartwright?

    Sounds like he could play for the Panthers! I have searched the 1978 Aussie Test teams an can find no record of a Test with only one fast bowler. Did they name who it was during the commentary?

    I must say from the little I watched, Warner seems to have been very conservative in his batting. Just what is needed from an opener. Think T20 has ruined his game. He did have a few scares but hung in there and good on him.

    Hilton looks a talent, I'd describe him as a batting all-rounder but bowls some decent medium pace

    Hasn't got the best numbers in the shorter forms but seems more adept at the longer form

    In his only previous test innings against Pakistan he scored 37 on debut but more impressive for me he batted 122 minutes

    He averages 52.07 in Sheffield Sheild after 22 games with a highest score of 170 not out

    He finished as the second highest run scorer behind Ed Cowan (959 @ 73.76) in last year's Sheffield Shield with 861 runs @ 53.81

    Been in the WA system for a few years with some big wraps on him, He was born in Zimbabwe too just to throw that

    They may referring to the 5th test against the West Indies in 78

    Our bowlers were: Trevor Laughlin (Medium), Jeff Thomson (Fast), Graham Yallop (Medium), Bruce Yardley (Off Spin), Bob Simpson (Leg Spin), Jim Higgs (Leg Spin)

    Before my time and I never saw that match but it may be the one

    Scorecard from that game can be found below

    He certainly has turned his form around in the last 2 innings, 112 and now 88 not out

    The key is being consistent and doing this against the top teams

    His last 10 innings prior to these 2 innings were shocking

    He scored 8, 6, 56, 14, 19, 17, 33, 10, 38 and 55 at an average of 25.6

    calling Yallop medium pace is being kind. Yardley bowled a lot faster than Yallop.
