A fantastic performance from all the Pak batsmen ensured that Pak reached a healthy total of 303-6 after the allotted 50 overs.

Highlights of the innings were Bazid Khan's maiden fifty which he made in good time towards the end.

Yoyo and Afridi too got 50's with Afridi continuing his incredible form.

This is now the highest score at St. Lucia in an ODI and Pakistan will be hoping to keep it that way

Sticky pls.

Come on razzaq amd afridi, both get a handful of wickets and put the west indies out of their misery.

Saj
23rd May 2005, 00:13
304 to win for the home team, which is a tough ask.

Once again Gayle will be the key wicket and will need support from senior players like Chanderpaul and Sarwan.

Rana and Shabbir will look to get the early breakthroughs and Pakistan playing an extra spinner this time around, Arshad Khan.

If only shahid nazir was there, its a gr8 opportunity for him, runs on the board....little pressure


he would have shown us what he is made of today

poor guy

4/0 after 1 over, 1 no ball already from naved

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 00:28
FOUR from Gayle off shabbir

Usman
23rd May 2005, 00:33
run rate over 6

Usman

maiden from rana

MIG
23rd May 2005, 00:35
Shabbir is chucking - left right and center - this is too embarassing to watch!

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 00:35
poor line form shabbir thus far...he has bowled too many legside deliveries..

I think their batsmen are generally strong on the legside

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 00:36
are you watching on tv MIG?

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:37
Nice to see Shabbir has picked up a bit more speed since the 1st game... got upto 84.8mph in the last over, and beat Gayle with a gem of a bowl going past the outside edge of the bat.

Usman
23rd May 2005, 00:38
Where is everybody???

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 00:39
rana doing his usual stuff.......good bowling

Usman
23rd May 2005, 00:40
4.4 Naved-ul-Hasan to Gayle, no run, beaten, lovely ball on off stump
and its scrapes past the edge

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:40
Rana beats gayle this time, Pakistan just need a bit of luck to catch the edge, and hopefully umpires will hear the snick today !!!

3 runs of the over

15-0 off 5

good start by Pakistan

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 00:40
Where is everybody???

thats what I was thinking....

I guess many arent back yet from their breaks..

I know that cricket devil had to take some pics so will take some time to come back

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 00:42
"and hopefully umpires will hear the snick today !!!
"

The Windies crooked umpires only hear what they want to hear!

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:43
Sheppard telliing Shabbir to get off the pitch quicker in the follow through...

Gayle wips him through the leg side in the air for 3 just past mid wicket.

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 00:44
shabbir bowling quite average....

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:44
Shabbir bowling a lot quicker today... upto 86.7mph

good to see... even if action is slightly dodgy...

Usman
23rd May 2005, 00:45
Marshall not playing. Damn!!!

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:46
Rana bowling good line and length on the off stump to his field and at good speed 87.7mph last delivery.

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:48
Excellant over only one of it.

7 overs 21-0

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 00:48
pak bowling to filed...

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:49
Another excellant delivery, W.Hinds beaten all ends up by Shabbir !!!

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 00:49
Windies only batting at 3 runs over.

Some tight bowling by Nana Rana the old banana

Usman
23rd May 2005, 00:50
Pakistan's run rate was 6.06 and West indies going at 3.00 with their most destructive basmen at the crease, whats going on?

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 00:51
Im not impressed with shabbir today...some balls were good but most have been on legside..

not good line from him

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:52
Shabbir drifting down on to pads, once too often and flicked past fineleg for 4.

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 00:52
i think he bowl better to the right handers...

Usman
23rd May 2005, 00:53
7 runs came of that over

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 00:54
we havent gottena wicket after 8 overs...

strange

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 00:54
Shabbiiiiiiiiiiiir going at 5 an over. He is undoing all the good work of Rana.

And some people think that he can replace Shoaib

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:54
We shouldn't expect too much from Shabbir at this stage he is not fully match fit, has been out of the game for 8 months, apart from a couple of 20Twenty games.

He does tend to bowl alot better to the right handers.
You're right though with the two left handers, he should be bowling off stump line, especially to W.Hinds

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:56
32-0 from 9 overs.

waheed
23rd May 2005, 00:57
1st Offical Warning to Shabbir from Sheppard !!! for running on to danger area.

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 00:59
I think this game has been decided already...

Im gonna call it a night soon

Usman
23rd May 2005, 00:59
You know cricinfo was getting mixed up with who hit the 6's Naveed or Akmal, well if you click on Naveed's name on the scorecard page, it takes you to Kamran's profile. Strange!

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:00
Good straight bowling from shabbir, 5 successive dot balls, and he finishes it off for a maiden :)

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:01
Rana, No ball and smashed down the ground for 4 by Gayle

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 01:01
Warning has made Shabbiiiir bowler better

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:02
SHORT & WIDE smashed through point for 4

Poor bowling by Rana

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:02
a noball and a 4 of Naveed

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:03
Lucky escape for Gayle, totally decieved by Rana slower bowl in the air but past the mid off for 2

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:03
another 4

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 01:04
it happens..he has bowled very well thus far

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:04
Short and pulled for 4

Driven through 4 next bowl

FArhad may have spoken to soon with the new thread...

expensive over 4 fours

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:05
and another 4, Chris Gayle has woken up!

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:06
this time shabbir gets the treatment pulled for viceous 4 1st ball.

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:06
and another 4!!!! 20 runs of the over!!!!

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 01:07
uh oh! the game isnt finished yet!!!!!!

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:07
another 4 what the hell is going on!!!!

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:08
Gayle on fire... at the moment

Pakistan need to dismiss him soon.

Pakistan have problems stopping batsmen like Sehwag and Gayle, once they are out, Pakistan can get control of the game.

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 01:08
Time to bring on Afridi, the partnership breaker

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:09
Shabbir bowling at over 87mph now, follows up with good yorker well kept out.

57-0

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 01:09
a bit too early for that

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:10
W.Hinds joins the calipson party with lofted ondrive for 4
another expensive over, worth pakistan bringing AFridi on inside 15 overs.

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:10
the thing with batsmen like Gayle Sehwag and Afridi is that they send a message to the opposition telling them it's not over till its over

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:11
i'm not too concerned...we have Arshad playing today

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:11
Rana starts with noball and 2 runs.

Needs to show what he is made off and get that last over out of his.

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 01:11
why did this happen...

it is a serious matter

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:12
What is it with these extras man

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:12
Powerfull straight on drive for 4 by w.Hinds, went straight through Rana

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:13
wow! Hinds what a 4 on a decent ball

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:13
Short and pulled but inside edge get Hinds a single.

68-0

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:14
12.2 Naved-ul-Hasan to Hinds, FOUR, driven right back and touches
Naved's hands on way to long-on

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:14
Gayle seeing it like Football now, clever slow bowl but Gayle glides it to 3rd man for a single.

Pakistan will be glad to get one dot ball at this stage, runs coming off every ball.

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:15
rana uses his mind....
but req run rate is less than 6.3 noe

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:16
Shabbir straight delivery on target, not giving hinds room to free his arm... dot ball :)

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:17
we need a wicket now

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:17
Good start for Shabbir 3 dots in a row, can he keep it going...

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:18
Gayle down the wicket and smashed it past the bowler for 4

75-0

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:18
change in bowling reqd...

Afridi or Arshad

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:19
Im just glad that we've already won the series!

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:20
Good thing for Pakistan is with 3 spinners on a 2nd day wicket, there should be more turn in the pitch.

Lets hope so for Pakistan's sake.

Arshad Khan coming on in the 15th over.

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:20
yeh they heard me!

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:21
good for W.I
but it is difficult to go the distance

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:22
Arshad dropping on to a good length straight away, not trying to flight the ball too much to Gayle.

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 01:22
good change of bowler

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:23
Slog Sweep by Hinds straight to Afridi for a single.

Gayle drives him to long off.

Good bowling to the field.

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:23
seems they will throw their wicket

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:23
Hinds dances down the wicket and smashes it to long on boundary for one bounce 4.

15 overs over. WI on TOP

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:24
seems they will throw their wicket

I hope so

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:25
Razzaq replaces Shabbbir.

Pakistan need a couple of tight overs from anywhere...

Razzaq loose first ball short and pulled through midwicket for 4.

and Gayles 50. Well Played Gayle.

161
23rd May 2005, 01:26
razzaq on - this might be more trouble for us - we need afridi now !

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:27
Paksitan seamers are proving to be too one dimensional, could have been worth trying to go around the wicket and creating a different angle into the batsmen.

Crowd responding to WI batsmen. First time in the series

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:27
If Gayle is allowed to stay any longer w will be staring at defeat, don't forget we still have to get the likes of Sarwan and Chanderpaul out.

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:28
gone

waheed
23rd May 2005, 01:28
Razzaq strikes, excellant catch by Kamran Akmal


90-1 !!!!

YES

shabbu1
23rd May 2005, 01:28
why bring razzaq on while gayle is in psycho mode? i dont get it...we need Afridi to work his magic for us

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 01:31
because he gets us a wicket!!!!!!

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:31
why bring razzaq on while gayle is in psycho mode? i dont get it...we need Afridi to work his magic for us
bcs it should be harder to hit on slower pace when W.I are trying to hit every thing

Hashim
23rd May 2005, 01:32
he just got a wicket idiot!!!!!! :P B)

shabbu1
23rd May 2005, 01:32
i spoke too soon...:P

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:32
Sarwan in, we must not let a partnership develope here because Sarwan is a very good player and Gayle well we can see what he's like, we need to pick up another quickly

DM
23rd May 2005, 01:32
Afridi's lined up nicely for man of the match - a few wickets should do it

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:33
i think sarwan wicket is more important here....
he can capitalize on the start...
GAyle will get out!!!

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:35
pak needs to attack sarwan giving him easy singles!

the true passionist
23rd May 2005, 01:38

17.3 Abdul Razzaq to Gayle, no run, fast and straight, beaten on a
leaden footed drive


Come on razzaq get that pace and swing going, we need some quick wickets.
At least he done some quick damage by getting out hinds who looked dangerous, why wasnt he brought on earlier!! X)

shabbu1
23rd May 2005, 01:43
17.6 Abdul Razzaq to Sarwan, OUT: What a catch! Ball was smeared to
extra cover and travelling, Younis Khan at short extra cover dived
and took a blinder

WHY WAS HE BROUGHT ON SO LATE?!!!!!

YK's fielding has been amazing !!

:D> :D> :D>

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:45
Younis Khan deserves a place in the team solely as a fielder never mind how good he is with the bat

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 01:46
This is good....2 lefties on the crease now and we have Arshad bowling. Arshad will choke them for runs while Razzi will try and pick up wkts from the other end.

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 01:46
WHY WAS HE BROUGHT ON SO LATE?!!!!!

maybe because nobody expected him to???????

the captain cant tell by reading bowlers' minds who is going to perform and who isnt

Usman
23rd May 2005, 01:48
19.2 Abdul Razzaq to Gayle, no run, cuts and almost drags it into the
stumps

Razzler is turning it on!!!

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 01:49
We need to see the back of Gayle to seal the fate of this game....although Smith can hit the ball hard as well but Im not sure if he has in him to go the distance specially against our spinners

Hashim
23rd May 2005, 01:54
Oi yaar razzaq is a totally new bowler since india and abu dhabi! Extreme pace and expolisive swing, he already picked up 4 wickets i the last match and done the damage today too!

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 01:57
Windies maintaining a healty run rate of 5.5 and Gayle is still in.

I have this feeling that the Windies will win this game

161
23rd May 2005, 01:57
yoyo drops turtle and he gets a 4 the next ball !!

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 01:59
Mod Edit: Khalil- try to be civil! Its a game for GOD's sake!

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 01:59
words exchanged between razzaq and yoyo

Imy
23rd May 2005, 02:01
Khalil that remark was out of line

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:02
In comes Afridi

Khalil please man, lets not go that far

KHALIL - do u not get tired of all these ideological rants u make?

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 02:05
Well I personally think Yoyo was brilliant in the India series at that mid on position. We have short term memories coz we probably forgot the run outs of Dravid and Yuvraj Singh in the Delhi ODI. He has definitely made that mid on position his own.

Rana Banana
23rd May 2005, 02:06
afridi gets hammered by gayle :( :(
23.4 Shahid Afridi to Gayle, FOUR, a one-bounce pull over midwicket rope
23.3 Shahid Afridi to Gayle, FOUR, tossed up and driven through the
covers

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:06
Gayle is looking unstopable, we have to do something

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 02:07
This one may go down to the wire and I have a sneaky feeling Windies might clinch this one but its gona be close.

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 02:14
Runs coming to easily for the Windies.

Gayle is going to win this game for the Windies. I think that we should at least 30 runs too few

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 02:14
This partnership is looking dangerous.....we need to get atleast Shiv out....he is great at building innings and rotating strike and hitting an odd boundary or two

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:15
Gayle hits a 4 almost a 6

badxhah
23rd May 2005, 02:16
this game is gona test pakistan when everything is goin ur way its really pretty.this is where MYK captaincy will be really tested.

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 02:20
true badxah ....Windies are dictating terms here. They are half way done with the score in a mere 27 overs with 8 wickets in hand so if this partnership is allowed to continue for another 8-10 overs or so it'll be a cake walk for Windies.....in which case they'll probably chase down the target with half a dozen overs to spare.

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:20
runs coming at will here, something must be done

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 02:24
well im not too worried, their req runrate is mounting, 6.8 now....i doubt they'll be able to persist much longer.

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:25
If we get Gayle quickly then the target will be too much for chanderpaul to handle but at this rate Pakistan are going to stuggle

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:25
If we get Gayle quickly then the target will be too much for chanderpaul to handle but at this rate Pakistan are going to stuggle

z10
23rd May 2005, 02:26
its almost gayle v pakistan at the moment

if gayle is out...windies lose

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 02:26
well I dont see it that way, by the time they reach 40 overs at this rate, their required will be somewhere around 7.5

they cant manage

waheed
23rd May 2005, 02:27
Pakistan need a breakthrough, another partnership developing, runs being got far too easily and at will !!!

We need to get that run rate above 7...

Windies alot stronger today, Mortson will have confidence from his 50, Dwayne Smith is a good attacking batsmen.

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 02:27
Yeah but if they need 70 runs of last 10 overs with Gayle still there its not that big an ask. Plus Smith and Bravo are more then capable

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 02:29
yes yes...they all are capable.....

but when was the last time they did it? and all collectively together?

waheed
23rd May 2005, 02:31
Chanderpaul gone caught in the deep by Shabbir, finally a wicket

171-3 Malik gets the break through

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:31
At the begining of the over Arshad's appeal was declined

Gasherbrum
23rd May 2005, 02:31
good ploy coming around the wicket to the lefties, rewarded with a wicket.

ImranR
23rd May 2005, 02:31
Chanderpaul gone!!!!!!!!!!

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 02:31
req runrate 7.05 already

what did i tell you

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 02:32
7 runs an over required

ImranR
23rd May 2005, 02:33
Morton in.

waheed
23rd May 2005, 02:33
Back to Back wickets would be Great...

waheed
23rd May 2005, 02:34
Good shout from Malik, off spinner turning in and hitting morton in line with off stump, but Sheppard not giving the LBW !!!

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:34
Thank goodness Lara isn't playing!

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 02:34
hmm....its getting interesting now!!!

23rd May 2005, 02:34
lol @ cricinfo commentary


31.2 Shoaib Malik to Chanderpaul, OUT: tries a hoist over cover, got under it and in the air, Shabbirr gets under it for an easy catch at wide mid-off

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 02:34
Chanders gone!

Danger man Gayle still poses a real threat

Bailan
23rd May 2005, 02:37
should have afridi bowl now ........ i think he can remove Morton ...

waheed
23rd May 2005, 02:37
Arshad bowls his 10 over spell, bowled tidely would have been nice for him to pickup a wicket or two as the leading specialist wicket keeper...

44 runs of his 10.

23rd May 2005, 02:40
Good honest effort from Arshad: 10 overs for 44 runs. Nothing to show for in the wickets column though but atleast he did not go for too many and he came in to bowl at a time when Gayle was going beserk!!

Usman

I think if we manage to keep Morton on strike for 3 deliveries in an over on average we'll easily win this game

tahaqureshi
23rd May 2005, 02:42
yes he is but im not convinced he alone cant take windies to a win, now that the req runrate is 8.something


face it, they have to make 120 runs in 15 overs with most of their top batsmen back in the pavillion

Gayle playing cautiosly for his hundred

Late Cut

They require about 125 runs in 15 overs...

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 02:47
Windies require 8.33 runs per over.

Very gettable while Gayle is still in

WI shud have sent either browne or jonny bravo ..

but wth i m not complaining :P

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 02:48
Afridi bowled 3 dot balls to Morton and then gave him a single on the 4th ball....thats exactly what I was talking about. Gayle will get frustrated on the other hand and gift his wicket if Morton keeps playing like that. WI would probably have been better off sending Bravo or Smith instead of Morton.

Usman
23rd May 2005, 02:48
yes he is but im not convinced he alone cant take windies to a win, now that the req runrate is 8.something


face it, they have to make 200 runs in 15 overs with most of their top batsmen back in the pavillion

200 in 15 overs, now I'm sure you can see a diffrent picture. They require 125 runs in 15 overs with Gayle most probably going to go on explosive mode once he gets his centary. Then anything is possible!

badxhah
23rd May 2005, 02:49
Gayle will Explode aft his 100 so betta watch out

badxhah
23rd May 2005, 02:51
if any of you still think that windies have a chance, especially with a req runrate of 7.4 and rising....

then im sorry but i cant see the same picture

one word = GAYLE

Shayan
23rd May 2005, 02:52
100 for Gayle, well played.. please get out now.

Farhad
23rd May 2005, 02:52
Gsayle slowed down for his ton, and run rate needed is about 9.2!

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 02:55
Gayle played a bit selfishly. He placed his hundred ahead of his teams interest.

I am expecting him to go ballistic now

Shayan

Morton's winning the game for us.

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:00
Forunate Morton clearing Shabbir just about, a very desperate shot...

nearly run out aswell, but over throw and morton gets 2 more.

100 to win off 60 balls.

In Pakistan's hands, rain coming down harder now

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:01
Pakistan need to keep Gayle off strike as much as possible...

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 03:02
so who wins if D/L is applied? coz Windies still have 7 wickets in hand and thats very important as far as D/L is concerned.

Any ideas!!

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:02
Poor effort from the fielder on the boundary diving over the ball, pathetic effort...

Is that Shahid Nazir...

bilal
23rd May 2005, 03:02
100 needed off 10 overs with 7 wickets in hand, not to forget that the windies still have browne and we all know wat he did last time round

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:03
Pakistan are ahead on DL, I think even with 7 wickets.. the gap is too big in terms of balls and runs

92 from 56.

As long as Pakistan keep down the extras, Pakistan should win.

Shayan
23rd May 2005, 03:03
Morton's winning the game for us.

crap.. did i speak too soon

adi 101
23rd May 2005, 03:03
i really dout they windies will manage to pull it of

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 03:03
Who will win on the DL system? should the game be abandoned now

bilal
23rd May 2005, 03:05
we need razzaq, rana, and shabbir to keep them quite now and inshallah we will whitewash them

Shayan
23rd May 2005, 03:05
rains stopped now

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:06
9 runs from the over, Windies need 10.

Wet ball not helping the spinners.

Will be important how the fast bowlers come back at the depth of the innings. Rana and Rao were very good in previous matches, but will be a different thing bowling to Gayle compared to the tail.

All to play for but Pakistan big favourites

Shayan
23rd May 2005, 03:06
lol at Younis... nicked Shepherd's walkie talkie

bilal
23rd May 2005, 03:07
ball being changed bad news, especially with the pacers coming on soon, the ball will be harder and come on more

Late Cut
23rd May 2005, 03:07
why do we have the spinners on in damp conditions with a wet ball. Afridi went for nine runs in his last over.

Khalil
23rd May 2005, 03:08
Windies are favourites while Gayle is still there

10 runs per over for Gayle is childs play

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:08
Pakistan just need a couple of dot balls in succession and pressure will be on batsmen to do something extraordinary.

Malik gets on dot ball, but another wide spoils this over

bilal
23rd May 2005, 03:09
we must get Gayle out orelse they will always be in the game with big hitters still to come

Shayan
23rd May 2005, 03:09

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:10
Morton gets caught in the outfield, Malik picks the wicket, another catch for shabbir running around the boundary

27 for morton.

80 runs reqd off 8 overs with Gayle and Smith on the crease. May well turn out to be an exciting finish.

Rana Banana
23rd May 2005, 03:15
Malik bowling wides.
the only pak bowler who hasn't bowled a wide is
RAZZAQ
where as the west indies bowlers only bowled 3 wides and 8 extras in total including leg byes where as the pakistans extras total is 13 6 wides and 4 no balls and 3 leg byes and the extras will come for the west indies

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:15
YES finally an lbw decision by a windies home umpire

Good for Pakistan, fewer balls for him to bat

Shayan
23rd May 2005, 03:24
Bravo defended it, went for a single, was halfway down the track, Gayle said no.. Shabbir picked up the ball in his follow through, ran towards the stumps.. threw, and missed.. Bravo had already given up

waheed
23rd May 2005, 03:24
Another snick and edge and another flipping decision not given by the umpire !!!

That is 3 clear edges not given by Sheppard and company in this series !!!

Rana

that should've been out caught behind, sheppard as usual misses one in crunch time.
it didn't help that shabbir didn't appeal, and akmal looked like an idiot appealing alone ...
