Lets hope Pak dismiss Eng within another 100 runs and bat well

Pakistan need to forget about their fielding debacle yesterday and start the day on a high note. Cook and Collingwood will be vulnerable in the opening overs, that is the best chance to pick up their wickets. Inzi should take the new ball and start with Razzaq instead of Sami, as the latter has hardly done anything of noe with the new ball. Gul should continue from the other end. Our best chance to pick up wicket is with the new ball

when does the match start?In 11 mins time

Saqib
14th July 2006, 15:23
InshAllah we will see a better start today with te bowling and a new ball.

Mohammed Sami and Umar Gul will start, just like yesterday the new ball will do it acording to Waqar. So lets hope sami or gul take 1 or 2 wickets early on with the new ball.

HAFRIDI
14th July 2006, 15:26
Better timing Easa : P

Just got home in time from an interview, was pretty good.

Anyway i hope we really get some quick wickets, i saw bell/colly/cook in nets and they are looking very sharp, confident. We gotta be on top of our game from the start or else they will blow us away

England won't get too many more I don't think.

14th July 2006, 15:31
Well, a new day and hopefully a fresh start for Pakistan today. Lets hope the boys can pick their heads up after yesterday's disappointments.

They need to go in with a postive attitude today, and hopefully fight their way into the match, because England will try and build on their excellent postion and bat Pak out of the game.

And we're off and running ...

HAFRIDI
14th July 2006, 15:32
England won't get too many more I don't think.

nice try at reverse psychology

i think one of these 2 will get out at the most in 30 mins, if they dont, they will stay there for an age

UJ
14th July 2006, 15:32
Obviously early wickets will be the key. We simply cannot let these two settle!

You'd be disappointed if your team couldn't get 500-550 from here, esp with the lack of potency about the attack.

HAFRIDI
14th July 2006, 15:36
Mario it will be worth it, sami 5fer coming

shan
14th July 2006, 15:36
why inzy haven't taken a new ball

KA$H
14th July 2006, 15:37
I can't see england getting 500 to be honest - 450 max - infact i'd even say 420

UJ
14th July 2006, 15:37
The new ball will be vital in breaking this middle order apart, and getting that long tail in.

Inzi might just want to take one wicket before he takes the new ball

zMario
14th July 2006, 15:37
Mario it will be worth it, sami 5fer coming

i've got collingwood in my fantasy team I expected that he will score a hunderd and he did

b0wld
14th July 2006, 15:58
have u guys noticed that all fair-weathered players make huge contributuions to their team when they plya against pakistan... take bell & collingwood for example... bell was included because of injury to vaughn for pakistan tour & yet he made so many runs..i thnk he was their highest scorer, same goes for collingwood... in the past i've seen so many dubious players make huge contributions when their opponenet is pakistan

PlanetPakistan
14th July 2006, 15:58
Ian the thorn Bell has given us a few problems in the past too

zMario

I had Sami in mine ( I couldn't find anyone cheaper )

muhammad saad
14th July 2006, 15:58
Enough now Sami has taken the wicket for this match now he should be gone and Razzaq should come to replace him

Sami bowling well

Easa
14th July 2006, 16:01
Bell not looking good at the crease - have a feeling he's about to get out.

Saqib
14th July 2006, 16:02
I had Sami in mine ( I couldn't find anyone cheaper )

I also have sami in my team because of Shoaib...you have to look at the basics

No shoaib till 4th test better leave him out to expensive

Take collingwood who has a good record against Pakistan :P and Mohammed also very cheap.

majalani
14th July 2006, 16:02
Razzzak should replace Gul, not Sami, he at least looks getting a wicket compared Gul, who is bowling like a pie thrower.
Waqar told them to bowl full, instead brainless Gul is still bowling too short

HAFRIDI
14th July 2006, 16:02
No need to get razzi in attack for Sami, Sami has that confidence now, he knows it, come on boy!

Nauman
14th July 2006, 16:02
Provided Gul stops feeding him on his legs.

Billy
14th July 2006, 16:03
"The advantage of bowling full is that it's advantageous."

Athers tells it like it is.

iZeeshan
14th July 2006, 16:03
Good morning! I see Sami has picked up the wicket of Cook. So what do you say now Sami-hating-Pakistan fans? And I see a lot of you have him on your fantasy team.

majalani
14th July 2006, 16:03
21 runs from two overs. Pakistan bowling much too short

You'd be disappointed if your team couldn't get 500-550 from here, esp with the lack of potency about the attack.

I'd be extremely happy with about 450 to be honest.

England's 7,8,9 just isn't strong enough to back up the batsman for those kind of scores.

Easa
14th July 2006, 16:04
As I say that, he plays a very good shot for 444.

Surprisingly - great starts seldom lead to huge totals....whereas indifferent starts, with mid/lower order rear guard action can see teams getting 600+. Weird

14th July 2006, 16:06
Need to control the run rate, when run rate is down wickets automatically come.

100.1 Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run, how’s that? Gone surely, no – huge appeal from Sami and the wicketkeeper. Collingwood edges it behind and, for some reason, Simon Taufel turns it down. That, frankly, was a dreadful decision and Collingwood survives. Inzamam-ul-Haq is currently chewing on his fingernails, and who can blame him?

We ppers seriously need to nick name Taufel...

That was out too, but it doesn't matter.

Guess the only way we can get out is bowled, like Mr. Sami.

true!

good comeback by afridi though, them 2 fours from colly were good for afridi..he will remember that when he comes out, dont u worry col mate

4 to Colly, straight down off Sami, moves on to 148*.

Sami is always the unlucky one :))

I never seen Sami with some luck

Afridi bowling a bit better now.

379/4

Billy
14th July 2006, 16:32
Well.. spinners aren't always going to get ones that just clip the stumps, I think that's probably fair enough overall.

Nevermind, I'm sure Bell will get out soon to level it all up again.

Seems like whatever can go wrong is going wrong for Pak. They are not even close to being out of the match though and should keep fighting.

HAFRIDI
14th July 2006, 16:32

well u should watch his recent games, nearly every match someone drops a catch of his bowling and now look.

he is v unlucky. period

England playing positively, not sure of how Pak are playing but surely Umpires playing Discriminatively

sami should be used like that. Instead of trying to get him to bowl line and length, we should tell him to bowl aggressively, bouncers and yorkers etc, and set a field accordingly

Shayan
14th July 2006, 16:40
razzaq will get Bell out i reckon

Exactly, Sami needs to fill the shoes of Akhtar as much as possible, however little it maybe. He needs to bowl fast, come roaring in.

Shayan
14th July 2006, 16:43
good ball from Razzaq, jagged back into Bell

i think they were absolutely spot on, untill & unless pakistani batsman makes a fool out of themselves

Muyazzim Khan

Yep I echo that thought. I think we need to start boring cricket now. Kaneria at one end and the rest should bowl short spells with men on the offside wide outside off.

For those who applaud Collingwood, please stop.

For those who think Pak is going to bat today, please stop.

For those who think Afridi is going get a wicket today, please stop.

For those who think cricket umpiring is ever gonna get better and unbiased, please stop.

Muhammad
14th July 2006, 16:55
Pitch and conditions have provided plenty of assistance for the bowlers, but if you bowl rubbish helpful conditions or not you'll get punished and that's what's happened at the start of both days.

Of course catching needs no further mention!
