    Haha perseverance not just for Sadaf but for all youngsters who i rate ;p I believe in giving them time.

    haha and no he is not second coming of Akram but much better in my view what he has made out to be here. Would have been like Abbas who averages less than 20 in test cricket.


    Sarfi as captain'll lead us to glory.Babar'll be our best odi bat & Haris'll be world class in tests

    What did I tell you? Ireland cannot defend it. A score of around 250 and then I would have written PAK off. These are not 5th day wickets with herath bowling arm ball grenades .

    Imam looks like a real find!!!
    Excellent denfense and have got proper cricketing shots, very good footwork, doesnt feel pressure and doesnt miss on bad balls. These traits are not easily available among most of the international batsmen.
    If he keeps on working hard, the guy has got a bright future.

    It's not a humiliation but it shows how vulnerable Pakistan have become recently in test cricket. Other than that I think Ireland have played out of their skins to get this far in the test. You couldn't ask for better preparation for the England tests.

    They need to give chance to Usman/Saad/Sami/Fakhar in the side game before the England test.

    Drop Azhar and Shafiq from that game, this 'll give signal to both of them about their position and a chance for youngsters to prove. I hope this happens and we can see the talent in real rather just on paper.

    Not when you have batting until 8. Anyway Babar was batting very slowly earlier. Just plodding along. Imam was clearly better. Test cricket is extremely difficult for minnow nations. They just don't know how to play for 5 days.

    Actually I think Ireland will be much better at test cricket than other minnows, considering they have experience of over 1000 (mostly county) matches under their belt.

    It was Imam's fault he committed and then ran back after running half way down the wicket. Poor Babar turned around but it was too late and got run out at the bowler's end.

    Imam more so than Babar who simply wasn't playing his strokes. You cannot afford to sit back in swinging conditions. You'll allow bowlers to settle on a nice line and you'll eventually get a nut with your name on it. Imam was playing his strokes and that made the difference imo.

    One of those run outs where you cannot blame either batsman. Both didn't expect the fielder to get to the ball, and Babar was off the blocks quicker which cost him in the end.

    Don't see us ascending from 7th/6th in the near future. 5-0 n England and South Africa awaits us, we will be lucky to even draw one match.

    I wonder when will Sethi beg BCCI for a series next. If the GoI obliges, India can easily overtake Pakistan in Test H2H without breaking a sweat.

    Their dibbly-dobblers are perfect for these conditions against inept batsmen such as ours. You can find hundreds of bowlers like them in the County circuit.

    I wonder when will Sethi beg BCCI for a series next. If the GoI obliges, India can easily overtake Pakistan in Test H2H without breaking a sweat.
    I hope we will atleast draw 2 matches which will not affect our rankings as lower ranked team is not affected.but with this slip catching and bottom heavy wiketkeeper i hope we do well interms of catching to be atleast competetive.phir tu UAE ma tests honay ha.

    There is a strong correlation between our selection problem and recent performances in tests.
    The failure of our first class system and heavy reliance on the PSL to select players for the longer format is a recipe for disaster. Rahat did reasonably well in the PSL, but how does T20 cricket compare with Test Cricket?
    As you may know, Jimmy Anderson isn't considered good enough for white ball cricket.

    530+ Test wickets but in Pakistan a bowler like him wouldn't get selected ahead of Rahat Ali.

    I have been impressed with him since his ODI debut hundred. While he is too slow for Limited Overs, he is technically sound and has a good range of shots. He reads the game well too, and it is clear that he has been coached well.

    Certainly an improvement on Sami and Masood.

    No, you are confusing me with someone else.

    I said that there is no way that "Ireland" can win this match, simply because they do have the experience to compete over five days, and that is exactly what has happened.

    I have been adamant all the way that there is no way Pakistan can lose this game. We are awful and Ireland have played well, but an Irish win was never in question.

    This "win" will cover up some major cracks in a very broken team.

    I reckon Ireland would have been delighted with this result before the start of the match. But, having seen just how bad Pakistan is, they will be disappointed not to have won it.

    I agree. Should we have won easily? Yes but had we coasted and Rahat taken a few wickets, we would have gone into the England series blindly and probably with same line-up including batting positions. Work for the coach and captain to do here as they cannot say they were not prepared when things don't go their way...

    Let's hope he gets improved.

    Usual crap before the dropped catch, after which he went into ODI mode and played very well.

    Ireland at home, playing their first test match, experienced first class bowlers used to the conditions..

    All in all this has been very good preparation for our series against England.

    A win is a win...

    Well done lads
