'The players and the umpires are walking down in the field, game will start in a couple of minutes. There is a bit of dew on the field and super-soakers have to do some work to keep it ready for play. '

a few wkts lost now due to agressiveness and it cud be game over.

weve milked most of the bowlers pretty well and scoring rate is fine. Both these batsmen need to score big hundreds.

I think the first priority will be to get enough runs so as not to lose the match. After that, they can think about pressuring England. That means getting thru to lunch without losing another wicket and then picking up the pace later in the afternoon.

Agreed. In a situation where the opposition still has the advantage, a partnership where the scoring rate is over 3 is perfectly acceptable

Pak's RR is 3.30 . Why do they have to slow down that much? Where's the attacking approach set by Malik and Younis.

wickets still good for batting, but there is alot more turn and some signs of uneven bounce.

the last ball that hit salman's pad actually did NOt pitch in line unlike what the commentator said. Richie the other day said that even if part of the ball is out of line it out of line (when its on the leg side)

It went as they went. But mind you, YK wasn't really what I would term as "attacking" in the latter half of his innings. He was good uptil 30 balls faced when he had 28 runs, but then he went into a shell.

There are around 150 overs left in the match and Pakistan must bat for at least 60 of them to try and save the match. If they bat for anything longer than 75 overs, Pakistan has a good chance of winning.

I think Butt is an EXCELLENT player of short bowling...
everytime flintoff or harmison banged it in short and fast, Butt was always quick to either jump up and defend or move away.

Even now cricbuzz says he had "no trouble moving away." shows he has a good eye and isnt scared of the ball.

I think there was just this one time that he sort of half lobbed it to leg slip area, very close to Jones.

Hes good, not excellent. hes been out numerous times to short jab pull in short career. also hes been lucky twice when 1st he spooned shortball just away from keeper and then was lucky 1st ball of today.

also remember wicket is very flat.

hes done good thou.
