Pakistan were set 440 to win
Tough, but they started damn strong;
They lost only one wicket for 114,
now that is just plain wrong.
Then day four dawned, the sun in the sky
and Captain Punter took a chance;
Lord Marcus North got his hands on the ball
and lead the Stanis a merry dance.
Hilfy did get things rolling
then he handed over to the Warrior's skipper;
The man helped himself to six wickets
and sorted the opposition out a ripper.
And so it was over, test one was done
and though it could have gone either way,
The Aussie bowlers put the result out of doubt
and won by a mile on the day.
So, we won the first test by 150 runs. It was pretty interesting, really. If you're a neutral, that is. It was not obviously going either way until that last day.
The bad news of the day is that Hilfy might be injured again, although Ian assures me it is nothing. I still think it's time we put him to bed and left him there until it's Ashes time.
