are these collapses just because the pakistani attack (under helpful conditions) is that damn good? or is it just the conditions?

there is no objective way of telling, because whether its the english attack or the australian one, the pakistani batting will ALWAYS collapse.

but i find it strange that two relatively solid batting line ups (in recent times) have been so brutalized by one team - so much so that were are considering deep lying structural causes as the reasons.

The Reverse Sweep

From what I've seen karachikhatmal it was been a combination of the conditions, inspired bowling and some pretty average batting. But English batsmen should be used to the conditions. Pakistan look much better with Yousuf in the XI. If they had Younis in there too, they could have beaten both England and Australia
