We are very happy as Pakistan has won the 1st test match against Australia. Pakistan played very well. Team showed a real team spirit.
The Aussies have to chase the target of 438 to win but all in vain. The Aussies could not stand in front of Pakistani bowler. However, Pakistan had other ideas, and they bowled Australia out for just 216 to record a 221-run victory.
I’m really disappointed with my personal performance in this Test match. I’m not looking to blame anybody else or criticize anybody else. I’ve always loved the challenge of facing spin bowling. I’ve been out twice to spin bowling in this test match. It’s not so much the spin, it’s the slowness of the wicket. The spin’s a little bit inconsistent and I think that’s what’s caught us out today. Guys have played for spin and a lot of us have been out to balls that haven’t spun as much.
Michael Clarke will need to investigate exactly what went wrong during the Test, but it’s clear that facing spin bowlers was the Aussies’ Achilles’ heel.
