Possible changes in both teams but the question on everybodys minds is - Can England salvage some pride or will they go thru the motions with an eye on the BA timetable for tonights flight back home ?

As for Pak, well it doesnt matter if they score 350+ or 210 - they just seem to be doing the right things - they are on an incredible high.

Today could also be a chance for us to see some new talent on Pak side - Asif, Arafat and the perenial Fishermans friend (joke): Hameed.

Match should start in the next 15 minutes or so....

England won the toss and elected to bat first

England team:
*ME Trescothick, MJ Prior, AJ Strauss, PD Collingwood,
VS Solanki, A Flintoff, SD Udal, +GO Jones, ID Blackwell,
LE Plunkett, SJ Harmison.

Pakistan team:
Salman Butt, +Kamran Akmal, *Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf,
Shahid Afridi, Yasir Hameed, Abdul Razzaq, Shoaib Malik,

MIG

For England, Harmison is back and Anderson stays out

For Pakistan, Mohammed Asif is on debut and Younis Khan stands in as the skipper. Akhtar, Inzamam and Sami are rested, in their place are Hameed, Mohammad Asif and Arshad Khan is in, Kaneria is in the super sub

Per Cricinfo intro:
"Rudi Koertzen and Tony Hill are the umpires. Mian Aslam is the reserve umpire. Zameer Haider will perform the duty of Zameer Haider."
The last sentence is funny!

Amir
21st December 2005, 11:32
So once again, Pakistna have opted for a bowler for super sub who is going to become useless. Meanwhile, had we had ARafat on his HOME GROUND, he would come of good use with the bat.

Kaneria does not fit in now, unless he figures how to bat within 2 hours!

Amir
21st December 2005, 11:33
We already have 3 spinners, with malik, afridi and arshad. Why opt for Kaneria as a forth? It just beats me, should have gone with Arafat.

Pakistan's supersub strategy seems to rely on winning the toss and batting first. They have the idea that the whole supersub notion is a gamble. It is to an extent but you can counter that with an all-rounder. Anyway this has been discussed at length by us but Woolmer/Inzi/YK obviously have their own ideas.

Short and wide from Asif, cut away for four by Strauss.

Amir
21st December 2005, 11:47
his action is very slingy like kaspro or shoaib.

And his action straight away under scrutiny by Botham. Something about his left arm gone early.

Botham saying if his left arm and head is being used correctly he can add a yard of pace

bootha believes if he uses his left arm and also keeps his head straight he could add a yard or two of pace...valid point

Well, his bowling has been on the wane over the last few years. Its surprising nothing has been done by him to arrest this fall.

Or perhaps whats been done hasn't been effective?

I think a score of 220 will be difficult to chase under the lights on this track.

Oh, wait, Afridi's playing!

I think 220 will be difficult to chase under the lights on this track.

For England, if they had batted second.

Yes, Badxhah, I agree with you there.

Arshad is just an honest bowler, who knows his limitations and works within them.

Interesting.

You can't sub a bowler whose already bowled for another bowler, according to Sanjay.

Lloyd and he are speaking about subbing Kaneria for either Hameed or Butt.

what the use of replacing kaneria for arshad wjhen he has bowled 10 over.
I think they wont replace kaneria unless arshad is going for lot of run.
why they have kaneria as supersub why not arafat ??
ok i know because this pitch is spinner friendly

Ace Base

i dont think they need one more spineer at cost of a batsman.
we already have 3 spinner

DotCom
21st December 2005, 13:03
kaneria cant bowl if he replaces Arshad ... if Arshad bowls 10, kaneria has 0 to bowl ..

kaneria can come in for a batsmen ..
BUTT is someone ... since PK can have Hameed open with Akmal, or even BEAST

GQ
21st December 2005, 13:03
i think its a turning wkt. kaneria can def. spin.

It looks like this is a spinning track.

A Razzaq must be sent up the order to open today as there's no point him hanging around until the spinners get a bowl. Abdul Razzaz is a poor player of spin.
