    The Aussie's ended up with a comfortable win, good to see Waston finally get a ton.

    England also had a good win, beating Sth Africa (ranked #2) by an innings and 98 runs.

    Well done the Poms.

    Yes the Aussies won but Ponting got it wrong with the first declaration.
    Why give the Paki's a sniff. He's a bit lucky they crumbled in the second dig.

    Bring on Sydney. I think I might attend.

    watson cant bat at 5,6,7. he looked terrible there when he first came in the team. he need a fresh start. as an opener every innings is pretty much the same 0-0 on the scoreboard and if he fails there's 5 or 6 batsmen to cover for him. thats when he does well.

    Fair point but he only played 2-3 tests and number 5 or 6.
    He will not be opening again after this summer. mark my words.

    Yeah he might get a game ecause Katich is in doubt. If he does get a game and scores runs they cannot drop him, Marcus North will then be under pressure and i think that's where Watson should be batting at 6 instead of North.

    Very funny reading this thread AFTER the fact. Its makes a few of you look like dills lol

    Watson cant open....man of the match lol

    Hauritz cant bowl......5 wicket haul lol

    Declared too early.....perfect declarations in BOTH innings

    Watson bats better at 5-6.......check his numbers lol

    North should make way for Smith I believe. Smith could bat 6 with Haddin, Johnson and Hauritz coming in after him, and he's a much better bowler than North.

    I'll make some stupid predictions so you guys get a chance to laugh at me, its only fair.

    If rain doesnt intervene, Australia win series 3-0

    Watson will make at least 2 more hundreds this series.

    England wont win SA series

    Watson will win the AB medal in February.

    For the record, I'm not a Watson fan, but I acknowledge he's been the best performed Aussie this year.

    I did not say he could not bat, but we all know opening the innings is difficult enough let alone bowling 15-20 overs of fast bowling as well. It's clearly a stupid decision to have a specialist opener (Hughes) not playing when he should be and watson could easily fill the all-rounder position at number 6.
    Hauritz struggles to take top order wickets. A part-timer would have taken 5 lower order Paki wickets.

    Definately in trouble, they will have to bat well in the second innings to save this one.
