    Wasim be like:

    "Good weather. Good pitch, something for everyone. Bowlers will get wickets if they hit right areas, and batsman will score runs if they settle in. Good job by groundsman. Reading score of the scorecard. Mandatory praise for Pakistan batsman. Mandatory other obvious details until next over"

    Ramiz as annoying as is is comfortably better, even Waqar is a level up.
    Naseer and Athers are brilliant. When Wasim is with them, they make him talk about bowling and strategies. Which makes him worth listening. On his own, "the sky is blue, the grass is green, and this is a Test Match".

    Azhar Ali apparantly has the highest average for an opener since 2000 after Matthew Hayden (minumum 20 innings). Averages higher than Hayden as opener away from home. And here on PP we have posters crying about his style of play and asking for him to be dropped lulz.

    He has very decent knowledge obviously but a commentary box is definitely a no.

    He’s done it for a few years and he’s not got better.

    Pakistanis would never be happy with anyone or anything.

    The only issue Azhar has is that he takes awfully long to get himself in and when you expect him to get a big one he gets out.

    50 off 150+ balls is not sufficient enough, you have to make it big with a 100+ score at least.

    Good going by Shafiq, now he needs to maintain concentration.

    As I said earlier, at least one batsman has to go big with some supporting knocks.

    At Edgbaston we had a lead of 103 and it got wiped out in no time so a lead of 150 should be the aim.

    we really have to go big..any lead of less than 150 is not good enough inmho..we need to try and bat all today and most of tomorrow to just put immense pressure on England..tired of seeing us get paltry leads that get wiped out and we hear botha etc lauding their team as if their world class..

    Yes. Psychologically teams approach a lead under 100 differently than one which is 150+

    If a wicket falls now (God forbid) I wouldn't mind pushing Fahim or Hasan up the order and asked to go hell to leather before the second new ball hits. Might be a bit out of the box but if it comes off then it would really set England back. Also if England panic against the onslaught they might bring back Broad and/or Anderson who won't be fresh enough when the new ball is taken.

    England trying to save runs instead of trying to get us out. Negative round the wicket bowling at the body of these batsman, taking lbw & other modes to get out, out of equation.

    These negative tactics by England reminds me of time when Srilanka played against us in UAE, where we had to score 300+ runs in limited overs in last session of the test match.

    Pakistan batting sensibly and according to the match situation, who would have thunk? Is it due to Misbah's legacy? Or is a the Mickey Arthur effect? Maybe a bit of both but really loving this.

    If your lineup has the ability to do that then they should bat all day today and tomorrow. This test is only in its fifth session and the batters aren't exactly under any pressure.

    Asad scoring 4 runs off pacer at one end. Babar blocking a maiden off a spinner at one end.

    The only reason I want Bobs to score runs is that we can bury that garbage comparison thread with that unknown Indian bat..... right now the only reasoning the Indians have is that guy has a better average than Babar in tests. Bobby wipes the floor with him in the other two formats.

    Good to finally see the RR creep just over 3 in the last 10 overs.

    Even still the RR is just 2.82.

    Can start to see confidence really build in Babar, he needs to cash in and make this an arrival inns interms of test cricket and get something big.

    Asad's always been technically sound, more so than Azhar. But he needed to be played up the order for him to step up to responsibility. Keeping him around at 6 he was never going to do that.

    These two would be ideal two against new ball, dont want lower middle order having to fend it off.

    He has a 90* in worse conditions in NZ when everybody else was falling around him. His arrival was never in question, but his consistency in the format.

    This is where I would have liked someone like Fakhar coming in next. Could have really buried England in the ground.

    Don't think his defensive technique is good as Azhar's.

    But yea he plays the attacking shots much better.

    Today was a perfect situation for him to come in. 87/2 in 37th over. Not a lot of wickets and old ball.

    Now imagine Azhar comes in in that situation. He would have half the runs that Asad has scored.

    10 overs to new ball. Ideally want 30-40 more runs with no loss of wicket. Ya Allah please

    Still Babar defintely should change his technique. He doesn’t have the Kohli flair in him. He needs to bat MUCH faster.

    Maybe Babar should learn from his cousins...

    Kamran Akmal has a Test SR of 63
    Umar Akmal has a Test SR of 67

    And both of them played like 10 years ago. Babar is really behind them with his 45.

    He doesn't play the new ball as well as Azhar. However Asad's better against spin, decent against pace, with a wider array of shots.
