Looking back on the innings, I think that Paine was the only guy who played a poor shot and even that is a a bit tough. LBW, bowled or nicking off to deliveries that had to be played. Nobody went to a catch in the gulley by handing their bat out to dry at deliveries that should have been let go.

So you’d need to give the honours to the bowlers.

By the time I went to bed about midnight when Pattinson went (7-122) I think there had only been a handful of short deliveries. And of course, missed the Smith/Siddle partnership and the last wicket fireworks.

A great example of why Test cricket is so enthralling
