    Very difficult to defend this total , the outfielder is fantastic and the pitch is flat. Will need some miracle today.

    This should be pretty easy for Australia. Pakistan cannot afford to lose momentum with bat like this in modern cricket! The only way they can restore this imbalance (with bat) is by possessing most lethal bowling of world (Akram/Waquar/Imran/Saqlain) such is the batting standards today! But their current bowling is just on par with other good bowling attacks which I'm afraid is not enough!

    I have hope. Our batsmen didn't look like it was easy scoring there, especially at high strike rates. We also had a lot of luck and dropped catches to get to that total, it wasn't exactly like a collapse under pressure. And of course 260 or so is always a defendable sort of total, batsmen are still forced to play their shots, it's not 200 where they can just bat out the overs for zero risk.

    9 times out of 10 Australia would chase this with eyes closed brother.

    It's that slim of a chance. The first 10 overs will make it apparent to you

    What I'm thinking. Aus struggle with spin, if those three can all bowl at around 4 an over, means that Australia will have to hit at around 7 per over against the pacers which isn't easy and will be forced to take more risks against the pacers.

    Exactly. People are underestimating our bowling. It's not going to be a walk in the park for the Aussies. We are short a few runs no doubt but it's not like the total isn't defendable.

    We got Australia out for 220 last match. first match they got 268 because a 100 from Wade at 7 (which was lucky for them, if that had not happened they would have been much less).

    We have a chance, it could have been worse the score. I imagine if the situation were reversed, people would be saying the game was lost and there was no chance Pakistan would chase 263.

    I have to agree with you on this bit.

    If Pakistan were chasing 263 I would bet my money on Australia.

    There is more chance of Pakistan defending 260 odd than actually chasing 260 odd I am sorry to say.

    Its the kind of total where captaincy comes into play. When a wicket falls you need to attack and get more. THats where Hafeez is much better than Azhar and we might see that difference today.

    Aus should win it from here.

    Unless we get 3/4 wickets within the first 15 overs including warner/smith then we in a good position to win. Even if Aus maintain a 6+ RR. 90/4 or better off 15 would do nicely

    Mistake for Hafeez to open the bowling IMO. Thinks he probably can snag a left handed wicket. Would be better if Amir did it. Hafeez's knack for getting the left hander is gone with the modified action.

    lol, I remember people saying Hafeez would never open with a spinner like Azhar did, and he's done just that.

    I'd only open with a spin bowler if the track supported spin (i.e. an asian pitch) when you want spin on as quickly as possible. You want you're most penetrative bowlers to be bowling at the beginning with the best chance of getting a wicket. And on an Australian pitch, that is your pace bowlers. And Amir and Junaid have been bowling well anyway. But bowling with spin early on, you're just wasting the opportunity for an early wicket. Use them more to restrict the batsmen later.

    It's funny Hafeez should have done the reverse. See if JK opening works, and switch himself on if it doesn't. Instead now the openers seem to have lasted the first five overs and looking more settled.

    Amir is too afraid of pitching it up , he is a nothing bowler without swing.


    It is either a heartache or a headache ..Argh relationships.

    We have a chance, it could have been worse the score. I imagine if the situation were reversed, people would be saying the game was lost and there was no chance Pakistan would chase 263.
    this is a completely different pitch

    Both of those pitches were good for batting too, just teams batted poorly on them.

    I see nothing wrong in hafeez opening the bowling. At least he tried something out of the blue

    Sadly the ball won't swing after this over.

    This is what Pakistani batsmen need to learn from Australian and Indian batsmen. Warner instantly realized he was in trouble with Amir so instead of looking to hit a four, he blocked and took a single. Our batsmen would try to see out the over with a maiden and in the process got out
