Australian cricket has laboured in the absence of Shane Warne's prodigious talents. Warne was not only vital to the team's success between 1995 and 2007 for his own many qualities as a leg spin bowler, but also for what his presence and skill did to aid others. Fellow bowlers, captains and also batsmen were all grateful for his ability to take command of a match, and found themselves growing in confidence whenever they watched him do it.
Even with Ajmal, Pakistan's Test team had stumbled lately, notably in Sri Lanka. That series was played against the backdrop of Ajmal's report for a questionable action, and the distraction undoubtedly affected the performance of Misbah-ul-Haq's men. Lacking him entirely, they must summon up greater performances from the likes of Zulfiqar Babar and Mohammad Talha
