    Wahab needs to play a blinder here now. Lol a 50 in 25 balls would do.

    Shafiq is such a timid character. Instead of saving tail he is trying to save himself. A total selfish. We deserve to loose this match

Amir and Yasir aren't complete duds although Amir is against an off spinner.
    Even 20 runs target won't get if the tail gets out. It's not about bating capability, in that case 50/5 won't happen to end like 250/7.

    Simple logic you see - SRL is happy to concede a single to Asad & the reason you have just seen - of all types, Yasir is Stumped, because he is not tuned to take the pressure of facing a full over; that's why he bats at 9 - otherwise hitting couple of boundaries ins't the only batting capacity.

    Now we'll see what Abbas' batting is made of. He's always come in to bat trying to protect his wicket for the senior batsman. C'mon Abbas. Hit them out of the park.

    Well done SRL - Congrats. I always felt it was easier to chase 317 rather than batting 100 overs - so, yes; have to say that 50 in 32 overs cost PAK this Test; icing on the cake was 50/5. This will happen even if the target is 117, if you have 5 Azhar clones in line up - top 3 adds 25-35% with the target on 4th innings.

    Babar and Haris have not played for 8 years and done absolutely nothing of note for the team.

    This is typical Shafiq - score soft runs when the game is lost, usually happens when his place in the side is under threat too.

    Dilruhan MoM? 3 top orders in 1st innings, 5for in 2nd & a 50.

    Probably Karuna MoS with 2 spinners MoM in 2 Tests - where the "hosts" decided to test their fast bowling capability.

    This test has had many twists and turns. If the last pair were to win it for Pakistan, that would be the ultimate twist in the game.

    On quality, this one has to be Asad's top or 2nd best 100; but his approach was wrong. Should have started to protect Amir - had they blocked for half an hour with a single in every over, I am sure SRL wuld have started to panic. Also, the trick Asad missed (which was Steve's key), once you start to take a single on 4th/5th ball, Captain tends to pull fielders in after 3rd/4th ball - that gives a boundary hitting opportunity.
