Amjid, as long as you do not mention Bob and Inzi... the thread will not be deleted by MIG |-G

9th March 2005, 01:54
Still over 6 hours to go till the match starts Amjid, slow down.

But again that saying is true, 'Wherever Amjid steps, a post is born.'


Regarding MIG deleting threads, sorry but his English is bad, so most often he ends up reading 'Delete this thread' as 'Date this brunette'. :-p

Pitch square is all covered up due to prior or current rain; can't tell. Looks very wet. I doubt there is going to be any play at all today. If the play does start. the conditions will be quite ideal for bowling.

sajjad
9th March 2005, 08:55

thats wat cricinfo says:
Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the second day's play
Sadly the drizzle that had showered the ground since early morning
will delay the start of play here today

sajjad
9th March 2005, 09:02

9th March 2005, 09:05

shastri interviewing balaji and rudi.

Light drizzle continues...if and when it stops it will take 45 minutes to clear up.

They can make up to 2 hrs in the remaining days.

Manjrekar's first question for Rameez : it is raining, good news for Pakistan

Rameeze's reply: good news for India..batting can be hazardous in this cloud cover

tahaqureshi
9th March 2005, 09:08
well the rain can stop, but cloud cover remains for long, so india maybe in for a rollercoaster ride

tahaqureshi
9th March 2005, 09:20
i don't mind is the boys give it a try despite their english being bad, it doesn't make our image look bad, in fact it shows how much we are involved in our culture that we don't have time for other languages :oD

9th March 2005, 09:20

Not a single minutes play was lost in Pak last year!!!

And some jerk in India cancelled the Tsunami Relief game because he thought it would be too hot next month.

Back to bed!!

161
9th March 2005, 09:44
yes sajjad you will have some good news- india would have scored no runs.

sajjad
9th March 2005, 09:45

how is the drizzle? is it still light, has it increased, or has it dissipated?

tahaqureshi
9th March 2005, 10:03
Update (10:50 IST - 5:20 GMT) - it stopped drizzling for a brief
period but now it has started again, outfield is still relatively
dry, the playing area is still under covers.

9th March 2005, 10:43
here is ur lame joke of the day

why does snoop dog carry an umbrella?

tahaqureshi
9th March 2005, 10:44
because his frizzy hair would become wet and drop down

161
9th March 2005, 10:45
valid point, but not humorous

correct answer: fo drizzle

tahaqureshi
9th March 2005, 10:46
Update (11:35 IST - 6:05 GMT) - nothing much has changed in the
past half-an-hour, it's still drizzling lightly out here and all
the covers are in place.

MIG
9th March 2005, 10:46
Willow TV recieve a feed where the camera is running....

The rain seems to have stopped and it is looking brighter but covers are on ...

well if the rain has stopped, y aren't the groundstaff preparing to get the game underway? y are they so slow?

MIG
9th March 2005, 10:56
Actually, I cant tell if the rain has stopped!! but its brighter and by the way people are running around in the stands and the Pak Flag fluttering in the back - looks pretty decent all around.

mig, any movement on the field?

MIG
9th March 2005, 11:11
Nothing - unless they all hide wheneve I connect !! wait a minute someone is digging up the pitch



just joking...

MIG
9th March 2005, 11:12
Although from the rise in the level of noise from the crowd - seems that people are quite hopeful...

waquas_uk
9th March 2005, 11:13
It is still drizzling there and the covers are still on
Due to the rain delay, players have decided to take an early lunch

Rudi Koertzen has said that it will take about 45 minutes to start once the covers are taken off

Officer Barbrady
9th March 2005, 11:14
O. So no chance of any cricket for now.

Pakistan zindabad

razzler
9th March 2005, 11:15
Lunch is over Waquas. It should start in 30 minutes my guess.

razzler
9th March 2005, 11:18
Still raining out there.

waquas_uk
9th March 2005, 11:19
Status at 12:15 PM IST: It is still drizzling a little bit. Once the drizzle stops it will take about 30 minutes for play to resume

thats from www.cricbuzz.com

Willow TV showing covers not just on the pitch but across more than the whole square.

A little golf cart now driving around - plus the bugles and trumpet men are excitable again.

I'd say should start by 8:00 am UK time if it doesnt rain again.

the true passionist
9th March 2005, 11:37
finally umpires moving out...super sopers apearing
we may will have some cricket

9th March 2005, 11:40
Funny scenes...

Groundstaff who are wearing "greens"" ?? on their knees and drying out the top of the covers with the sopper thingy going up and down now !

the true passionist
9th March 2005, 11:43
yeh they r absorbing waters of the covers...
amazing!
probably want to prevent the water to flow onto the field..

fair_play
9th March 2005, 11:44
An Aussie voice on TV was preparing to start the commentary but just said "now its still raining!"

the true passionist
9th March 2005, 11:45
talking of that...
light has got poor again..
another patch of cloud seem to be over the ground..
hopefully it does not have lot of water in it..

fair_play
9th March 2005, 11:48
The Aussie voice was all ready - telling when to get people back into the box etc, but I reckon its drizzling again.

The bugle and trumpet boys have become a tad quieter. Umpires walking off more purposefully.

I'd say chaps go back to your homeworks and exam prepartions- and MIG you go back and justify your loads greenbacks job!


(Btw, thanks for this Willow link - not too bad)

9th March 2005, 11:51

9th March 2005, 12:01

not much play would be achieved nevertheless..
we might even be looking for a washout!

An annoucement in Punjabi now about the weather now - difficult to follow as its resonating through the speakers.

Look even MIG has gone back to work.

MIG
9th March 2005, 12:10
did I hear that right ? The stadium announcer is asking people from both nations to dance to music ?

fair_play
9th March 2005, 12:13
Apparently Woolmer coming out now!

Maybe he'll have to entertain the crowd now. Will be more riveting than staring at the covers.

Btw, Mohali Punjabi not too different from Pakistani Punjabi.

Yaar - I have a presentation to make to some traders this evening and have done nothing!! I will be slaughtered unless I come up with some good excuse - best to send one of those - waiting for input from some other guy type email ( first check if he is on holiday or not !!)

9th March 2005, 12:15

but the players are on field not in playing clothings...just vewing the conditions..

9th March 2005, 12:15
MIG yaar sit down.

Not another excuse for you to dance! I know the 'Oops I did it again' gets you going!

The real question which team is going to make the other dance - our bowlers or their batsmen.

Javed Miandad, the entertainer, would have come in handy now.

Look if they're derivatives traders they will suss out you havent done much. If they trade cash or linear instruments only I reckon you can tell them pretty much whatever.

Some Punjabi folksong on Willow now! You reckon its Youhanna, or Inzy?

MIG
9th March 2005, 12:19
Funnily enough, if this rain situation continues and play is curtailed to say 3 days, we seem to have the ideal score ( Also scored at a good pace ) to make the match worth our while....

tahaqureshi
9th March 2005, 12:19
well u know asim kamal has the temperament that miandad had when he was under pressure, so maybe we do have a miandad amongst our ranks??

music on ground...
batting practice or warmup by indians

Raz
9th March 2005, 12:22
Yeah i agree. Kamal played wonderfully yesterday. Lets hope the bowlers can produce today. Im really hoping for a good display from Sami today. Hope he gets a bit of luck as well. Its LONG overdue!

Salman
9th March 2005, 12:24
OMG - Hans Raj Hans is singing on the covers and the Pak team warming up & dancing

fair_play
9th March 2005, 12:25
Kamal is very different from Miandad in technique and approach.

I wrote on the old Pakpassion baord before it moved here that he is very Alan Border/Larry Gomes in technique and approach.

What's more he is a batsman unlike the majority of all rounder/sloggers who have played for Pakistan over the years.

Kamal waits on thee backfoot without too much footwork (no harm there) and plays with a still head - and calmly. Like many backfoot players he can also drive very well when the bowlers tire and decide to pitch it up further, as he showed yesterday.

Raz

Rudi doesn't seem very hapy with the music....face expressions.

and just when the players were doing their stretching Willow Tv shows a big blue screen!

Just the old PC crashes - no sound either! Hmmph!

The players were looking really bemused, as he walked past them and called them the Indian sher! There they they were stretching while the singer commented on them!

If not rain, I reckon this man could hold up the test match! No one is going to get him off the ground at this rate!

Alternatively, to hell with the cricket and the series. Keep this guy in the middle for the next 15 days I say!

well.. as i was crazily and madly refreshing Cricinfo scorecard, it said:

Update (13:20 IST) - finally some good news, it has stopped raining and the covers are being removed, if the weather holds play should start by 14:30 IST.

This was about 35 mins ago. You can do the math :)

tahaqureshi
9th March 2005, 12:49

wats the benefit of bowling under cloud cover? i never really understood that

Raz
9th March 2005, 13:10
It makes it advantageous for bowling, as the ball it more likely to swing. Correct me if im wrong!

Amjid Javed
9th March 2005, 13:13
With wicket being under covers it shud sweat alot which means ball shud swing alot even after the new ball has been used.

Raz
9th March 2005, 13:14
If Amjid agrees its definately right!

Dont understand how a bowler can be nervous !! Batsman, yes - but a bowler just comes in and bowls to his ability - whats this being nervous business about - angry/frustrated yes but nervous ? Just another excuse for being incompetent I say....

Problem is that he is now in a one day situation - he cant attack cos we have so few runs on the board and the current rate is such that Inzi will be happy to slow down the run rate - forget about attacking !!

no .. its too early to give up attacking. listen , if they can't get them out by attacking, sehwag will pile on 300 on his own.

key is for razzaq to bowl on offstup line and just make the ball move EVEN FRACTIONALLY away from him... dont understand why pak pacers aren't able to get that movement!! :(

MIG I think inzi was still trying to pick up a wicket by introducing the double change and danish got hit for a four big deal...he was still trying to invite the guy to hit him again...I don't think danish will stop attacking regardless of how many runs on the board we have.

However inzi has said it is more abt tight cricket than attacking cricket so he might do mix of both...attack while keeping the run flow down as well

Amjid never seems to be happy...It would be nice for him to admit that inzi went upto the bowlers few times had a little chat and had set an attacking field for them since he is the one who complains all the time. Rana couldn't ball to the field he was provided.

I bet once this test is over most folks will jump on inzi for not setting the fields right.

Raz
9th March 2005, 14:24
Well firstly we need to stem the flow of runs especially from Sehwag. That way he could play a silly shot and may get out that way.

The fact that we have so few runs to defend means we cant keep on attacking. We need to contain them first and dry up the runs. Then maybe think about attacking!

TaZ
9th March 2005, 14:24
I hate Rana - ever since Karachi

9th March 2005, 14:25
Lets appreciate the other side.

Some fantastic flair play from Sehwag - effortless and disdainful. Ever since I saw him play his first ever innings, I find him more fun to watch than any other modern player. The other comparator is Adam Gilchrist - but even he doesnt have Sehwag's air if casual disdain - sometimes I think not just for the bowling but also for people who over hype the technicalities of batting.

Its not great from a Pakistani point of view - but lets do enjoy it if we can. Pakistan still have no idea of how to bowl to him - though in the last series Shoaib finally got it right with precise short pitched bolwing cramping him for room. The margin for error though is very small when you try that tactic.

I'd like to say I told you so for all Sehwag doubters - but lets just say that from a Pakistani point of view the fun doesnt last too long. Sadly he has alos opened the flood gates - and dangerously still seems to be playing within himself.
