From cricbuzz:

Special Trophy: The Indo-Pak Friendship Cricket Cup, designed by Amit Pabuwal of Jaipur, will enter record books for being the biggest trophy made for any cricket tournament. The sparkling 45 kg trophy is made of gold, silver and diamonds with Jaipur's famous meenakari work around. The trophy has five players engraved at its base wearing India and Pakistan colours. The bottom has flags of both countries along with logos of the respective boards. The centre has ten golden stumps with a red ball striking them.

How many times have Pakistan proved everybody wrong?

When we lost to India in Pakistan in 2004, everybody were of the opinion that India are favourites to win, but what happens, Pakistan goes on to win almost everything against them. I think that Pakistan will be very very focused in this short series.

Inzy skips two important meetings

By a Correspondent

Abu Dhabi, April 18, 2006

Pakistan skipper Inzamam-Ul-Haq skipped two important meetings that of the match referee's meeting and the press meet on the eve of the first One-Day International for the DLF Cup against India yesterday.

He remained untraceable thereafter, according team sources.

"He has been unavoidably delayed", coach Bob Woolmer said after Inzamam failed to turn up in time for the mandatory pre-match captains' press conference

InshaAllah, even if they score more than 300 we can still chase it down. Our bowling is weak while our batting is strong.

Uthappa is an impulsive front foot player. He somehow survived Sajid Mahmood's short pitch bowling the other day, where he balooned a catch in no-man's land. Short pitch bowling is what Pak needs against him.

I am not worried about Sachin but Sehwag is always in form when he plays against Pak. Even in the last series before coming to Pak he was not in form and then he hit 250 odd in the first match. This guy is dangerous.

Chuck bhai... do u not understand english...

I know he is bowling in the right areas and swinging the ball....

Whats your age?

I do understand what you said. I was merely passing my opinion on that. Many times passing opinion does not always mean that you are trying to negate it.
