Place all updates here - can afridi produce a master piece, or can asim battle. Will the rain be a factor or will the windies blow pakistan away?

Overnight scores:

West Indies 345 & 371
Pakistan 144 & 113/4 (23.0 ov) Pakistan require another 460 runs with 6 wickets remaining

Anyone who thinks Afridi will become Hanif Mohommad and save Pakistan's skin needs a reality check, there is nothing much to talk about in day 4 except wickets falling.

Afridi will not become Hanif...he is Hanif!!!! Sorry I felt the need to be optimisitcly stupid for once. I deserve it after being so real throughout the test!

my prediction - if Fidel Edwards returns to bowl we should be gone by around lunch, otherwise we might just last the day.

tahaqureshi
29th May 2005, 14:30
otherwise we might just last the day

IF we do that, we will win..

according to current run rate, we need 93 overs to get the remaining runs.

29th May 2005, 14:32
but bro we goin at nearly 5 runs an over

Amjid Javed
29th May 2005, 14:48

Afridi to score a triple centruy as Pakistan chase the mammoth score before tea :D

Hussain
29th May 2005, 16:23
IF ever in his life Afridi has dreamed of establishing himself as a test batsman this is the ideal moment for him to do it

1) - He has plenty of time left in his hand
2) - HE does not have to worry abt any declarations frm the captain

3)- He is not under any team pressure to score quickly so he can play himself in
4)- Pakistan team is in a pressure cooker situation so if he perfporms today tht mean tht he has the mental toughness to be a gud test batsman

Waqar's inswinging yorker
29th May 2005, 17:04
gary - u care to talk about the rest of the indian tour???? WHAT ABOUT AFRIDI MAKING that pregnant ******* his bunny. Afridi a so called bits and pieces player and a odi specialist - and i know u have said worse about him BUT HE DESTROYED INDIA! ur ******* attack look baffled, he tore apart kumble and the other muppets.

CARE TO SPEAK MORE ON IT? OR HOW ABOUT THE ODI SERIES

He will chase down the total and not play for a draw

tahaqureshi
29th May 2005, 17:18
Knowing Afridi..when he comes out to bat he will either be thinking "Ima win this one" OR "Screw it, lets just go crazyyyyyy" -gets out 3rd ball again


HE WILL NOT AIM FOR A DRAW.

Hussain
29th May 2005, 17:30
Well guys though the target is looking too big to chase


but if we bat the whole of day 4 and even lose 4 more wickts today
then even a modest runrate wud get us some wht 350 runs in the day

so we ll be neding around 120 tommorow with 2 wickets remaining and tht is getable
if our tail supports our cause

Waqar's inswinging yorker
29th May 2005, 17:42
that is true hussain, we could do ok - if kamal and afridi stay there for a while as they score fast.

IF EDWARDS IS NOT FIT

that leaves

king - distinctly average thus far, flukes his wickets in first innings and will get slapped about

collymore - swung the ball nicely - just play him out

powell - just wait for the bad ball - he provides his fair share

gayle - no real threat unless we try to be over aggressive


If we stay there a while they may use likes of sarwan

I do not understand, why they did not bat like this in the first innings, instead of chasing wide deliveries.

tahaqureshi
29th May 2005, 19:52
Collymore to Shahid Afridi
short and wide outside off, comes on the front foot and opens the face of the bat to runs it down to vacant third man region for four

afridi playing smart Mashallah

Amir
29th May 2005, 19:54
This partnership is important, we may not win, but it will atleast we can save some pride and it will boost the teams morale to bat better next test.

Like in Mohali, Akmals inning sparked us to play well, had he had not done that and we lost bad, we would get slaughtered even more next test.

29th May 2005, 19:55

Gayle to Asim Kamal
comes down the wicket and drives it down the ground to mid-on for four

why they in such a rush, are they trying best not to get out by playing their natural attacking game? and not get bogged down?

tahaqureshi
29th May 2005, 19:59
good to see you back Usman!

Usman
29th May 2005, 20:00
I think that they have been asked to play shots while not attempting wild hits so that if we can somehow win then we don't need to bat all the overs, as taha said at this rate we only need to bat something like 78 overs more

Yes pakistan is going to lose
thats for sure
they are playing for quick runs
they have all the time
still more than 170overs
so only runrate of 2-3 would be ideal
but so we will see the wickets of afridi and ca. falling in no time

Even if they play slow they will lose, this match is lost. But it is smart what they are doing, they are playing reverse psycholigly, making chanders go on defensive and then settle onto a innings. This sends a message for the next test.

Some poor captaincy from Chanderpaul, onyl reason he is goign to twin this is because of our poor batting perofmance in the first innings.

This pitch has alot of invariable bounce and Gayle is getting some real kick out of it, which is threatening, that is how Asim Kamal got out.

tahaqureshi

As soon as the target reaches 300 (Hopefully for the loss of still only 5)

I think we have a chance..


WE CAN'T LOSE A WICKET BEFORE LUNCH..

INZI/YK/BOB NEED TO HAVE A TALK WITH BOTH OF THEM TO KEEP THEIR WITS..

Usman
29th May 2005, 20:42
Afridi needs 3 more after the break to get 100 then he should play till the end if the day.

42.3 Gayle to Razzaq, SIX!!, stands there and lofts it between midwicket and long on, comes right from the meat of the bat and lands on the roof of the midwicket stands, what a shot, better than all the ones that Afridi has hit so far

Amir

weve shown resiliance today which is a positive point to take from this test

Usman
29th May 2005, 21:05
Afridi doing a good thing taking singles.

Saj
29th May 2005, 21:06
one could say that the ball is staying low, apart from when it comes off the bat of Afridi :)

bilal
29th May 2005, 21:08
47.5 Powell to Shahid Afridi, no run, full toss and he edges, one bounce
to keeper

Easy now

a change of bat for Shahid, maybe the heavy one for big hitting is out now :)

The_Cricket_Devil
29th May 2005, 21:08
that must be the 3rd time he has changed his bat now lol

tahaqureshi

we have a One Day kind of field setting for Afridi in this Test match

:))) :))) :)))

The_Cricket_Devil
29th May 2005, 21:11
yes i agree nadz, afridi batting very well wth is with younis khan being called yousuf khan by the commentators

hey doen anyone know what happened Fidel Edwards? why is he not bowling?

bilal
29th May 2005, 21:12
thank god they dont have any good spinners or else both of these 2 would have found it hard to play

Saj
29th May 2005, 21:12
The last few overs Afridi has been batting in a very orthodox manner. The field has been spread to all parts and Afridi has been playing it nicely along the ground for easy singles.

bilal
29th May 2005, 21:13
how did Edwards get injured

hasan316
29th May 2005, 21:14
Does anyone know what happened Fidel Edwards? why is he not bowling?

The_Cricket_Devil

something with his back he has had those in the past

Usman
29th May 2005, 21:15
hey doen anyone know what happened Fidel Edwards? why is he not bowling?

Yeah he got injured, lets hope for Pakistan's sake he does not make any further contribution in this match!

between 3rd slip and gully for 4 by razzler

i think bob has a lot of confidence in our friendly neighbourhood pathan and it has really elped turn afridi around :D

Usman
29th May 2005, 21:18
Both, Afridi h worked hard on his bowling in England and South Africa which took pressure of him in his batting. Then Bob and Inzi forced his inclusion in the side

tahaqureshi
29th May 2005, 21:18
Shahid Afridi intentfully looking for singles..

Officer Barbrady
29th May 2005, 21:20
Do you guys think bob is to be given credit for Afridi's good form or isit just Arfidi who has turned it around for himself in the past 12 months?

Both

Waqar's inswinging yorker
29th May 2005, 21:20
taking singles now is a good idea as field is spread

The_Cricket_Devil

tahaqureshi
29th May 2005, 21:22
I think he is a genuine all rounder, gr8 with the ball, and obviously amazing with the bat!

Saj
29th May 2005, 21:22
some very sensible batting taking place. Chanders spreads the field so both batsmen looking for the quick singles.

tahaqureshi
29th May 2005, 21:23
Chanders is a poor captain...good on the batsmen that they are exploiting it.

Waqar's inswinging yorker
