    Any chance there is to score runs the chance has to be taken and not to sit around poking and proding at the ball!

    He won't be out, because after this series u play in England I reckon, so he'd be there in the 11.

    Every once in a while some random mediocre bowler delivers a match-winning performance vs us. It's a strange phenomenon. There's even a 5+ page thread about it at PP.

    All other teams (Aus/Ind/Eng etc.) punish mediocre bowlers but we let em do their thing.

    Both playing selfish
    that is what happens when players are not sure if they will be playing the next match or not
    probably gonna survive 50 odd deliveries without scoring much then be dismissed. Writing on the wall for these two!

    No way it looks like a minefield, then why are Pakistan batsmen so afraid?

    Yes u are playing on the 5th day, against WC spinner, still scoring at 2 shouldn't be difficult.

    No way can u draw this, either play with intent and win, or be timid, keep losing wickets and lose the match.

    This is why Sarfaraz should have come up the order, he plays spin well, quick fire 40-50 runs is what is required right now.

    With the current openers, we have right now, no confidence for us fans

    the only chance we would have is to send sarfraz and hope for the best, because A) he is best vs spin B) his quick fire fifty would have sealed the deal, but our legendary management can never think out of the box

    Even Afridi does, the logic though.

    I don't remember a single occasion where Shehzad slogged when under pressure, he tends to instead eat up a ton of balls and get out- it's the norm.

    If Shafiq gets out without winning this game for Pakistan, it should definitely be curtains for him. We have much better and more talented batsmen waiting and we cannot keep persisting with mediocrity.

    Babar is so poor and tentative against spin man. Just stays stuck on the crease, no use of feet, no sweep shot.

    Babar survives!

    He needs to play his normal aggressive game here!

    Sad reality is that even after playing almost 60 tests we are making such statements about him.

    You are rating a Test opener for his slogging prowess?

    Plus his slogging isn't even all that good... wild hoicks aren't really needed, thanks.

    Just imagine if we'd invested in Harris or Fawad instead.

    Not talking about Shezzy here but I'd prefer a slogger over the current bunch we have. Absolute nuts.

    Not learning from your mistakes is the worst!

    This just happened to Pakistan 2 tests ago . . in Barbados . . and has happened many other times . . and I am tempted to say that almost every time it has been cuz of a negative strategy in the 4th innings!
