Just goes to show why no other form of the game will ever beat test cricket. At its worst, its boring as bat ****, but at its best it really is an enthralling contest.

This Test had both! Not a fan of those type of pitches, in many ways I'd prefer a dustbowl, but the ending was unblievably tense.

As someone who piled money onto the Pakistan win, very hopeful that another batting collapse occurs

We need a dislike button.

You disgust me.

Epic from Khawaja, Paine and Lyon.

The Marshes can **** off.

I was hoping we'd hang on just for Khawaja. How epic to be out there in 38 degree heat and some crazy humidity for all but something like 35 overs of the game! Would have been so disappointing to be all for nothing.

I think I've said this before but i generally consider the "Haha" button to be dual purpose.

I get that, but can't for the life of me see any way to make haha suitable for a post supporting Pakistan over this Aussies team! Does not compute.

I am shocked and appalled at what happened in that test match 

Unbelievable.

Speaking of which, are there any good cricket games out?

Really liked playing The Ashes even it was quite clunky and I would post scores like 0/164 at Day 1 lunch, and I think I got Michael Clarke to score like 402 once in like a 3d./899 first innings...

Lots of fun though

So no wicketekeeper, hey? Interesting.

The wickie is there he just didn't appear to wear gloves.

The most mindblowing thing about the game was that if someone got out it ACTUALLY SAID "HOWZAT". Like, someone spoke. It was 1988 and I'd never heard a computer do a voice before.

Haha I meant in the lineup! My full cricket nerdiness came out, I was checking out the players to see when it was.

Haha I got the mind blowing speech thing from Space Taxi! “Hey taxi, pad 2 please”

Oh right yeah. 

The only reason you'd choose wicket keeper was so it would say who caught it, I don't think they had any stats, same with slips. Thats obviously run off an emulator as well because there was no mouse and pointer. 

I think I kept stats on my games for averages etc :lol:

My dad never let me have Test Match, I had to go play on a friend’s or my cousin’s. Not sure if it was cost or whether he wanted me to go outside and play sport proper, but I hated I couldn’t have it. He also only caved and bought a Commodore 64 after they dropped in price because Amigas were the go. Childhood trauma.

People complain about unplayable pitches in the subcontinent, try playing Test Match after the mat has been in the box all winter and has creases in it.

Pakistan win the toss, Pakistan win or draw coming up.

Any place where the toss makes such an impact is not worthy of Test match status.

I’m pretty good at reverse jinxology, but this is easily my best effort yet.
