I'd rather have Danish bowling as late as possible, we need india in for the 4th innings. I wouldnt fancy our chances vs Kumble and Bhaji on a 5th day pitch

O mere laal, when the team bowling first gets a chance to bat, it scores big.

team batting second has always got huge totals. team batting first has got huge totals but not always , team batting first has also been bundled out cheaply. team batting second has never been bundled out cheaply

Best utilization of the pitch. Bowl first. Get opposition out for less runs. Then bat well. get a huge lead and then bowl.
Lets see who does it

i dont understand this if therz grass on the wicket that means win the toss n bowl first make full use of the pictch ........coz the grass wont last forever.....i dont know why ppl think its only danny boy who gets us 20 wickets everytime we win...our strength is fast bowling not leg breaks...(which mind u never works in the first innings anyway!!!

You guessed it right, they all have the same cookooland mentality! Yes he is Indian and he cant hide it even if he tries. There is some chemistry about them, Foolish Confidence, Never appreciating other teams, No Cricketing Brain, Emotional and Biased Comments without knowing the weaknesses of own players and team and always always overexpecting miracles from players even if they cant deliver and then burning their effigies when they lose.

I just read a sentence and can tell its an Indian.

I remember watching an India Pakistan game at Sharja Stadium and Pakistani Saeed Anwar was playing the 3rd over and smashing Srinath all over the park. A guy next to me asked me. Toss Ho Gaya kya ? and he had been flying an Indian flag for the last 10 minutes and shouting pathetic and fanatic slogans.

WHY on Earth has Rana been dropped???????????
If the team managemnt can shwo faith in Sami on the basis of nothing for 2 yrs...why has Rana been dropped!!
perhaps they have meomery lapse for some reason they think rana is an ODI specialist instead of razzak !!!!
