Watson's bowling (again) & Ponting's batting keep Australia in match: T2D2

Australia 88 & 2/136 (41 ov, R Ponting 61*) trail Pakistan 258 (64.5 ov, S Watson 6/34) by 34 runs with 8 2nd innings wickets in hand. T2 D2 at Headingley, Leeds

Without Shane Watson's bowling Australia might have struggled to win the First Test and, after his 11-3-33-6 on D2, would be chasing a huge, as opposed to substantial Pakistan lead.

Even so Pakistan are still on top. They will remain so unless Ricky Ponting can build on his 61*/103 b (6x4) and, with support from his teammates, give Australia a lead of over 200. The match could still be over in three days.
