Please place all score updates and discuss all issues pretaining to Day 2 of the Second Test match between India and Pakistan here.

At the end of play on Day 1, India stands at 344-6 after a bout of excellent bowling from Afridi and especailly Razzaq, in which he took two wickets in successive deliveries. Where India were once 298-3, they soon stood at 298-5 with both skipper and VVS Laxman back in the pavillion. The only hidrance remaining for Pakistan is the Indian tail which should hopefully be routed for under 400 runs, which would give Pakistan a slight psychological advantage considering the blazing start that Sehwag and Ganbhir got India off to.

And mods can you please make this sticky.

kaneria to continue as Pathan comes in.

pathan survives an inside edge as razzaq continues at the other end.

What a belters!
It would be criminal if we let them get past 400 now, especially since the last recognised batsman has departed, but this is pak after all, they always make it difficult!

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 09:44
Come On you greens!!!!

raz getting good movement here

Schiller
17th March 2005, 09:46
they shouldnt get to 400 from here really

Schiller
17th March 2005, 09:48
that was bad
that could have hurt

17th March 2005, 09:49
guys, why is Kaneria bowling early in the morn. Where are Sami and Khalil?

161
17th March 2005, 09:49
ouch!! good thing kamal was wearing a helmet

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 09:51
kaneria had an over to finsih and they are still bowling with the old ball I suspect...

We want to take wickets not let them score 450..in answer to your question about sami and Khalil

DM
17th March 2005, 09:52
I'd like to see Afridi against the tail

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 09:52
lucky edge for pathan...

gfx
17th March 2005, 09:52
hahaha
honestly man, why play speacilist bowlers if they cant do anything. This match has been all Kaneria, Afridi and Razzaq
At this pace we might as well bring Younis in to be a leg spinning all rounder LOL

Schiller
17th March 2005, 09:53
raz bowling well, moving the red, no need for a new ball

Schiller
17th March 2005, 09:53
if only that had been taken

Schiller
17th March 2005, 09:54
raz a little too wide of the off

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 09:54
well specialist bowler is a term that loosely fits sami and khalil...very loosley. We dont have any better at the moment..injuries to shabir, gul and ***** means sami is the only one left along with rana and khalil

gfx
17th March 2005, 09:55
guys
hows Razzaqs pace today?
yesterday he was a lot slower than usaul but bowled good line and length

octavian
17th March 2005, 09:56
Razzi bowling well with the old ball. Reversing it both ways. Only if that
i-diot Sami could learn how to do it, we can do much better.

octavian
17th March 2005, 09:57
Razzi bowling around 79-80 mph

161
17th March 2005, 09:58
bala almost stumped...

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 09:59
Ahh man it would make my day if they took out India under 360!!

gfx
17th March 2005, 09:59
hmmm,, rather military medium speed
well we must make sure we bowl them out quick and make full use of the pitch today. Everyone was saying that the pitch will begin turning on the third day

161
17th March 2005, 10:01
yeah pitch not looking good for us- well be really bad in our second innings.

Schiller
17th March 2005, 10:02
400 a distinct possibility here.

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 10:02
it was a bad toss to lose but I am surprised it didnt start crumbling on day1..

gfx
17th March 2005, 10:02
I think under 360 is 2 much 2 ask for. Chuckbajan can carry a bat well. But certainly less than 400 should be expected.

gfx
17th March 2005, 10:05
According to cricinfo Razzaq is getting the ball to reverse swing both ways.... Any truth to that ppz who are watching?

Naveed
17th March 2005, 10:07
We really should take the new ball, theese tailender would have problems with it.

161
17th March 2005, 10:07
afridi in and gets bala right away!!!!

gfx
17th March 2005, 10:08
Right on Afreddy..... Well done man

Naveed
17th March 2005, 10:09
Afridi is the man

DM
17th March 2005, 10:09
AFRIDIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!


ASHRIDI!! :-D :-D

Nice one!

I just wish i can watch it (see my 'desperate thread')

octavian
17th March 2005, 10:09
yep gfx.. Razzi was reversing it both ways, before being replaced by Afridi.

And Afridi bowls Balaji with first bowl he bowls!!!

What a guy !!

gfx
17th March 2005, 10:11
Man, Afridi is really justifying his selection. If he can add a few runs with the bat it will be a done deal. Might even be able to get himself back into the Test picture on a more than temporary basis.

161
17th March 2005, 10:15
kaneria gets pathan

gfx
17th March 2005, 10:16

Afridi's style of bowling can mop the tail

gfx
17th March 2005, 10:20
Guys I hope the pitch is'nt turning too much. Chuckbajan and Kumble might make a mess of us.. Though inshallah I think we can get this total and more

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 10:20
did pathan nick it or was he bucknored?

17th March 2005, 10:21
whats so stupid Umar?

17th March 2005, 10:21
51 minutes into the day so far and 3 wickets already

no attack when it could be 100% attack.

pathan not given the benefit of the doubt
bad decision by the umpire

cometators having a tuf competition on who can say more stupid stuff

17th March 2005, 10:23
Cricinfo is not sure if Pathan was Bucknored.

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 10:23
we should take the new ball now ;)

tahaqureshi
17th March 2005, 10:23
bad decision by bucknor actually..but who cares?? its been a while since a bad decision has gone our way

haha u guys gotta relax. This is a very good start. I dont think Inzi is letting anything slip.

Schiller
17th March 2005, 10:29
just one slip and one silly. and now one sill mid on
why not have two slips , would that hurt?

sajjad

AFRIDI + DANISH = Wasim + Waqar in terms of cleaning the tail

u dont know what ur talking about
I do, they're our current Wasim+Waqar for the tail

Their awkward style of bowling confuses the tail a lot more than our current 'seamers'. eg: see Australia

161
17th March 2005, 10:30
we need razzaq and sami to come in and bowl some yorkers now

sajjad
17th March 2005, 10:31

having 4 slips wont hurt either but it wont stop the boundaries either

2 slips would have been just rt sajjad and there was a good chance of getting a catch there.

BIG DIFFERENCE between

AFRIDI + DANISH = Wasim + Waqar in terms of cleaning the tail
and
they're our "current" Wasim+Waqar for the tail

the 2 spinners arent equal to the 2 quickies
but our standard has gone so down in bowling we have to rely on them when we shudnt

Schiller
17th March 2005, 10:33
case in pt

a third slip to sami might have helped here

Schiller
17th March 2005, 10:34
no way should india be allowed to reach 400 after doing so well early on. if they do its the captains fualt for mediocre captaincy.

sajjad
17th March 2005, 10:34

apply for Inzi's job.
ur the perfect man for it. what r u waiting for?

ohh comoen its chucky..dont let them get to 390

Schiller

tahaqureshi
17th March 2005, 10:38
is kaneria bowling well???? because he needs to get out either kumble or bhajji

pakistan needs to wrap it up soon, these runs may hurt us in the end

tahaqureshi
17th March 2005, 10:40
take him out and put in razzaq..he was getting swing

sajjad
17th March 2005, 10:42
just 1 good ball or a little edge and its all over

its gotta happen soon

17th March 2005, 10:42
no way should india be allowed to reach 400 after doing so well early on. if they do its the captains fualt for mediocre captaincy.

so Inzi, Gangulya nd Ponting should all be fired for letting tailenders score? this happens all the time yaar. open your eyes and smell reality. its called CRICKET!

sajjad
17th March 2005, 10:43
well said

kasoo10
17th March 2005, 10:44
I think spinners usually play spinners well. At least they put up a resistance and score well. A pace attack is more suitable at this time. Razzaq seems to be a good option.

badxhah
17th March 2005, 10:44
Sami cant even beat the tailenders

sajjad
17th March 2005, 10:45
everyone thinks they know what the best decision is....hehehhe

161
17th March 2005, 10:45
omg sami cant get these guys out-

sami needs to be taken off the team and go work with waqar or someone and learn how to bowl again...

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 10:46
Jesus wept!! A fw yorkers wouldnt go amiss here sami..

107.3 Abdul Razzaq to Harbhajan Singh, FOUR, Shot! good length delivery,
pitched outside the off stump and angling in, Harbhajan quickly
goes back and drives it away to the cover boundary, excellent
timing and placement
finally Inzi opts for the new ball


that one finally woke inzi up

17th March 2005, 10:49

thanks atys and sajjad. your words of wisdom have been noted. your intelligence ofcourse has been re evaluated ;-)

Look at it another way, if their tailenders can score off a new ball - why cant our batsman do the same ? The spin today isnt that much so Pak has a chance to go at a fairly brisk rate and get to say 280+ by tonight....

161
17th March 2005, 11:02
ok i know what we need to do - sami needs to throw a beamer at both kumble and turbinators head . hopefully he will give them both a concussion and knock them out. also since he has bowled 2 beamers he wont be allowed to bowl anymore.


perfect solution-
if only inzi was as sharp as me !

I agree ..I don't see India losing from this position ..Pakistan can at best play for a draw ..and yes let us wait till the Indians start bowling before we start talking about the pitch ..and how easy it is to bat on this strip

you dont see India losing from here? you should really stick to 20-20 cricket. looks like that is more at your level of concentration!

NZ scored 433 and had Aus at like 200 or so for 5 wkts.

yet they lost by like 8-9 wkts

17th March 2005, 11:07
remember this if we loose a close one

1. 44 run last wicket partnership
2. 36 extras

both of these mostly due to sami !!!

I dont think India has supremacy over the match. I think that its evenly placed right now. Unfortunately knowing our batsmen they could easily hand the whole thing away.

DM
17th March 2005, 11:08
Still at least Afridi had our 2nd best bowling figures so far and snared India's 2 most dangerous batsmen.

MecnunK
17th March 2005, 11:08
easy now taha!! calm down bro..

Toonboy is right 30 runs too many given + psycological advantage of 400+. Batting last will be hell.. We need 500+ here to stand a chance of winning. A 100 lead would be ideal..put the Indians under pressure..

What was the point of playing Khalil,,, Guy literally did nothing, and its not like they gave him a chance either. Bowled 11 overs like this other guy was saying.

We shouldn't have let them score 400!

Khalil, Rao, Asif - all have the same problem - not enough pace and no redeeming features (eg batting, stone-dead accuracy etc)

Schiller
17th March 2005, 11:11
they should have had them by 380 for sure.
pitch is turning a bit and suddenly the ball might swing too

sami is one of our biggest disappointments. it cant hurt to drop him for the next match

hardly possible after DRAVID, SEHWAG and TENDULKARS score.

The thing is we dont have any good replacement in our squad for Sami. While Sami hasn't taken wickets he has at least kept some pressure on the batsmen. Bowlers like Khalil and Rao will be a fountain

Unless we make the bold move to fly out Yasir Ali and Irshad.
