Even yesterday he bowled fairly well without much reward

We're gonna need 2 days of rain cuz with 8 wickets in hand Sri Lanka only needs another 100 runs or so before they seriously think about putting us in.

There are possibilities of passing showers today. It rained a bit early in the morning, so the deck should help the Pak bowlers for the first session.

would it make some sense for pakistan to go on the defensive and try to make SL bat 3-4 hrs before declaring the innings? I mean bowl 4 foot ouside the stumps, have 6 men on the boundary, u know that kind of stuff.

It might be interesting to see which players are effective against which team. And then arrange the squad that way. For instance Razzak seems to be the most dangerous bowler in the world when playing India. It might be a good method to determine which of the bits and pieces player shd be in the team. Everyone is happy.

It is simple....
If there are swinging conditions.....play Razaq and drop Afridi
if the pitch has spin or is flat...play Afridi leave Razaq out.

Both Afridi and Razaq can't play in one test team continously....
Since Malik takes an openers spot...he can continue to play..

Swaraj!!
29th March 2006, 11:10
You know.....Sub Continent teams are deffo going to crash if they play for a draw. Everytime I see someone saying we shd play for a draw there is a collapse inspite of everyone trying to block block and block. Reason being slower bowlers thrive when people dont try to score off them.
Pak shd try to play positively and try to dent some opposition conf. Murali is not a bowler who can be blocked. Either you hit him outta the park like the Aussies did or you get out.

we need rain...and some rain of boudaries from afridi in the top to restore confidence in the rest of the lineup...
Pakistan should not play for a draw..but players like younis and faisal can play at slow rates solidly...

We need a combination of all the tricks in bag with some luck from this game...or we are going lose points in the test table.

I'M SOooooooooo GUTTED! I can just hear the rest of the world laughing at us...egging the lankans on. MAn we should have dropped em like an easy catch when we had our chance (we're good at dropping easy catches!). Now they're gonna mess us up!

This doesn't look to good for Pakistan, what Inzamam should do now try getting the declaration late as possibel. We should try bowling very tight drying up the runs they will look for some quick runs. At the other we should get some wickets to get some hope back. This will help us alot in the second innigng.

BTW the weather is getting worst on the last day ! So it will be very difucult to get the full day for the sri lankans !

Tomorrow: Variable clouds with scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon. High 87F. Winds light and variable. Chance of rain 60%.

The batting order should be the same as the first innings, except for Inzi coming in before Iqbal.

Pakistan should look to replicate the type of innings Sri Lanka has forged. A mixture of caution and calculated aggression, not foolish abandonment in reckless shots.

The scorecard is so depressing I am avoiding to check the score in the office. There is no other ongoing cricket to take your mind off. I just hope that our batsmen fight it out when the inevitable declaration comes around and put a value on their wicket unlike the first innings. Are we missing the pace of Akhter and dare I say it Sami?

well yes we are missing some pace aswell...

but consider that we are playing 3 specialist bowlers...Asif has 3 tests before this one, Gul has played 5/6 before...third is kaneria with some experience...

We are not only short on speialist bowlers, but short on experience aswell.

I am amazed and dissappointed with some calls made against Gul that he isn't good. He is very good..He needs some experience...some of us immature as cricket fans...
