And theyve started.

Afridi and Salman will open.

0.1 Pathan to Salman, one run, flicked to deep square leg, off the mark straight away and brings Afridi on strike.
0.2 Pathan to Afridi: SIX!, Goodness me! Good length ball outside the offstump, Afridi comes charging down the track and murders it out of the stadium.

Just realised i forgot the other four balls so here goes

0.3 Pathan to Afridi, SIX! Another one!! Pathan goes for the yorker, but Afridi being the beast he is obliterates it back past the bowler and the balls mashes into the advertising boards.
0.4 Pathan to Afridi, SIX! Hat-trick!!!! Short delivery this time and it is fearlessly hooked way way over the ropes and into the crowd.
0.5 Pathan to Afridi SIX!! This is amazing!!! Good length ball from Pathan, Afridi comes down the track again but this time slog sweeps him!! What a sight!!
0.6 Pathan to Afridi SIX! 5 in a row!! Afridi! Afridi! Slower ball thats been annihilated out of Karachi. No chance of ever seeing that ball again!! End of an eventful over!!

i love it raz :))

0.3 pathan to afridi:SIX,again.This time slightly short swinging away from afridi and he helps it on its way by crashing it over extra cover.

there has been a delay.Looks like a poor bystander has been hurt by that shot into the crowd.It was too quick for him.Oh wait its harbhajan singh!Apparently he has been laughing at pathan when afridi hit that shot.

Faisal was practicing not sure if its confirmed for sure that Inzamam will not play.

on the pitch report mic holding thinks it will be more suited to the fast bowlers then the spinners ...n as the day game progreses n the pitch dries out it will become more quicker....whereas shiva thinks that the damp beneath the surface will help spinners as well.......................not for till the toss peeps soon as they come out will tell u who it is either inzi or younis khan!

field first ... obviously expecting some early movement. farhat and butt to the rescue, though both will be a tad nervous. the odds were against us as far as the toss was concerned, and a brave decision by dravid to field first after all that has gone on in this series.

I'm so depressed, I knew if Inzi didn't play they would aim for the draw, as taps said,
could be very dangerous.

I think management thinks so, a good 40 in each innings will be gud. They dnt trust Faisal Iqbal thats y Razzaq is playing, with a fit Inzamam we wud prob have brought in Gul or Rana.

i think farah makes a very valid point indeed if inzi were to play then razi wouldnt have been inthe line up..........i agree with u farah (once for a change).....n raz remember that mohali pitch was alot different n they were trying to save the test match.......this is do or die...............last test match of the series when the pressures on if u know what i mean i hope he can repeat the same performance or one which is half as gud as mohali then i would be happy n im sure he has it in him to deliever when it counts!!!!

Well if Pakistan win the they deserve too, seems like the Cricket Gods are against us we lost the toss when it mattered. I remember when Sri Lanka played at Karachi, the ball seamed i the first day the it was perfect was battig afterwards.
All I want from Pakistan is too fight ad the rest will take care of its self

The ball is swinging and pathan bowled three beauties but two of wickets were gifted while playing attacking shot under pressure on a swinging pitch. Who in the heaven's name tries to play that shot on a swinging pitch, on 0 for 2 in the first over of the match, facing the hatrick ball!!! Unbelievable!

Iqbal playing nice..I think the three wicketes that fell was purely because the batsmen were caught off guard..these two saw the ball swinging from the other end and realised to play carefully..YK and Moyo thought the ball would play like on dead pitch..they made a mistake in judgement..

OK lads, here's the plan:

We'll throw all our wickets away slogging and if we're lucky we'll get to 70 all out and then have a bowl at India while the ball is moving all over the place and bowl them out for 300.

Then we get the groundsman on to shave all the grass off the pitch and make it a complete road and score 700 before the groundsman accidentally messes it up with the roller and turns it into a complete minefield and we bowl them out for 150 and win the series.

It can't possibly fail.

I think 250+ is a good score on this pitch - just hope the remaning guys know that .

Anyway, for some strange reason - Malik seems to defend well - which is what we need one of these to do now.

Also, Ganguly being brought in at a time when he can do some damage with the ball as well - good thinking on Indian side - but why Rana is out is beyond me - I suppose he is still injured ? and what happened to Inzis 60% fit and play ? I am afraid, he is going to be accused of what he was accused of against Aussie - Inzi I hope your illness is that bad.
