    Has there been a cricket match you stopped watching at a point in the game and later regretted it?

    For me - it will definitely be the Pakistan vs SAF game in the 2015 WC. At the half way point - I was so disappointed with our batting collapse that I thought for sure we are crashing out of the WC... Went to bed afterwards.

    Then Irfan and Wahab happened


    In Tests - has to be THE Sharjah chase in 2014 vs SL. Even when SL collapsed to 214 in the 3rd innings - never did I think we would chase down 302 in two sessions... How I wish I got to see those last two sessions live

    Have to also mention the 2007 T20 WC Final haha. When Yasir Arafat got out - Pakistan needed 54 off of 24 with a debutante Sohail Tanvir af the crease. Had to go out to do something but never got to see the last few overs... Pakistan lost so wasn't that important I guess but wish I go experience the highs and lows during THAT Joginder Sharma over.

    Please share your experiences!

    I can't remember for myself, but I remember my uncle went to the third ODI between England and Pakistan at the Oval in 2010 with his wife and some friends as well IIRC. They left the Oval when it seemed like England were cruising to victory but then Umar Gul turned things around once they had left. They must have regretted that.

    During that 302 chase against SL in 50 something overs, I came back from hosp and watched the second session. Watched Sarfraz batting till he was on 13 i think and next thing i know we needed 2 runs in 2 overs i think when azhar got out. Still regretting that unplanned nap, but atleast got to see the last overs and the moment we won the game.

    Well I don't louse hope until that last ball bowled.
    Once me and my elder brother was watching the match against south Africa it was 43rd over and my brother said I am going to sleep pak will louse for sure.he went to sleep then razaq magic happens and we all know what was the result in morning breakfast when I told him that pak won he was not believing it ..
    The other occasion it was t20 match against Sri Lanka where a debutant bowler from Sri Lanka was doing a afraidi style and it was looking like we are going to lose from this stage but Anwar ( main kailta rahun ga) Ali smashed Malinga and Co. It was what a turn around

    It was my birthday .. can't explain in words how gutted I was when Misbah played that shot out of no where. He could hv dispatched that long Hoff to any part of the ground the way he was middling them. I still till this date can't stand the highlights of that match.. it was such a bad experience but sometimes I imagine if Misbah cd hv pulled that off , he was one shot away from the glory, he would probably hv been right up there with the likes of Javeds and Imrans. But sadly it wasn't to be.. what a sad day in our cricketing history..

    I heard about it the next day when several kids and my teacher bought it up in conversation.

    The series decider of the 2009 ODI series vs New Zealand in the UAE. We were chasing a paltry total of 200 odd and I switched the TV off when we were reduced to 70 for 7. I missed the Amir-Ajmal partnership and how close they came to win it for Pakistan.

    True
    I watched 2 sessions and slept as it was already 3 am at night thinking this match was in Pakistan's pocket and they managed to make it a thriller

    Afridi was given out at some point. I remember we were attending a wedding that evening so I went off to get ready. When I came back Afridi had added a few more runs and some huge, huge sixes!

    Maybe someone older than me will remember it, but there was this game against South Africa in the early 2000's, where we were bowled out for around 160-170, and South Africa were around 70-1.

    We left for our relatives, since the game was obviously going one way. By the time we reached their, Shoaib Akhtar had bowled them out already

    Found it

    1992 WC semifinal.
    I was in class IV then and had woken up at 3am in the morning and watched the NZ innings. My father told me to take a leave from school and watch the Pakistan chase. I agreed initiative but when we lost 4 quick wickets I went to school.
    And I missed one of the most memorable chases by our team.
    1999 Chennai Test
    When India needed 20 odd runs with 5 wickets in hand with SRT still in the middle, I switched off the TV set and missed one of the most memorable Test wins by Pakistan.

    WC 2k15 Southafrica vs Pakistan, the worst Pakistani team ever competing in world cup and that time there were no hope but yet again we proved everyone wrong. But the fact is I was happy for the victory of Pakistan but I don't want them to go further in the tournament because I had an idea that if we go further then we have to bear that weak team with few changes for 3-4 more years, probably till next world cup again.

    Pakistan versus England, Multan, 2005.
    http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/1...kistan-2005-06

    Went to have a nap thinking England will win at a canter, England needing around 100 to win and six wickets in hand, with Pietersen and Flintoff at the crease. England had scored 418 in the first innings.

    Woke up a couple of hours later to find that Pakistan had won by 22 runs.

    There was an ODI between Pakistan and NZ in the 90s at Sharjah. I think Pakistan got all out on 150 something and NZ were cruising along fine at 55-1 then thy collapsed and the whole team got out for 126 I think.

    I don’t remember the exact scores, the above numbers are just guesses.

    Didn't see this mentioned, the 2012 t20 WC game vs South Africa where we were 7 down IIRC, I left when Afridi got out (yeah yeah I was one of those ), before Umar the GULLDOZER smashed 3 quick ones and put us right back.

    I just left the TV on and went upstairs to study, but when I heard the 3rd six and crowd cheering came running back down and saw an epic win, one of the few where Umar Akmal played sensibly before his Brittany Spears meltdown 2015 onwards.

    For me there are quite a few matches (regrettably):

    1. Pakistan vs Australia in 1996 tri-series. Pakistan was defending 150 odd and we managed to defend. Afridi had Blewett clean bowled with his patent faster one.
    2. 1993 Pakistan vs WI in WI. Defending 148 Pakistan pulled off a hesit and drew the series at 2-2 after being 2-0 down. I actuall missed the third game of that series as well as Pakistan were 3 down for 50 chasing 270+ (considered 350 of that time). Then Asif Mujtaba and Inzi happened.
    3, Chennai test of 1999. But I managed to turn it on for the last wicket at least.
    4. I can't believe no one mentioned this. The 2000 tied match in Sharjah Pakistan vs Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka were 172-2 and needed 26 further runs in 10+ overs. And then Razzaq and Akram turned it on.
    5. Razzaq's blitz against SOuth Africa for sure is another one.
    6. I luckily caught this one http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/6...la-cup-1999-00

    Pakistan-SL tied game in Sharjah. I went to sleep when SL required 20 odd with 8 wickets in hand and was woken up by my brother when we had tied the game. Still have regrets to this day of giving up on that match. Back then you just did not give up on Pakistan causing a collapse.

    our CL final win over India, last year, i watched Pakistan batting, but i went off to play tennis, as i did assume India would win, noticed my phone kept beeping, as i have the app alerts for wickets.

    Got home in time, as pandya just came out to bat - watched the rest of it, but those wickets i missed - i watched the replays, but my heart wasnt in the match

    Those two matches in the 2010 Pak vs Eng series in England when Umar Gul went crazy and won the matches to even the series with his terrific bowling. I recall going to sleep because I was fairly young and going to school the next day. Then the morning I wake up and hear about the good news. What a bowler he was. That was the Umar Gul era!
