The Test summer ends in Sydney, with Australia 2-0 Pakistan.
Pakistan incredibly almost snatching that epic run chase in Brisbane.
Australia incredibly winning by an innings after all the rain and after Pakistan made 9d/443 in their first innings in Melbourne.
After Sydney, the next Test cricket played by Australia will be in India: 23 February, Pune.
As is usual, this is a call for writers, observers of Test cricket, whether viewing from the SCG or not, to nominate a day and write about it.
