    The other piece of commentary I always remember was in the 2009 T20 WC Semi final. Up until that stage Pakistan had been winning the odd game here, losing the odd game there and relying on other results, whilst SA had reached the semi-final like a well oiled machine & it looked like no one could have stopped them from lifting the cup.

    However, during the power play I think Kamran Akmal was batting against Steyn and he smacked him straight back over his head for a six. It was an odd shot, with Akmal not really on his front foot or his back foot. Nasser came out with an absolute gem of a line after that shot as well, which always resonated with me for some reason:

    "I guess we've worked out which Pakistan have turned up today! It's the ones to be afraid of!"

    Will share the actual clip if I can find it InshAllah, however, in the mean time you can hear the comment by Nasser in the video below at the 15 minute and 40 second mark.

    Great video as always.

    One suggestion, If you can add some Urdu/Pakistani songs in your videos it would be great and more relatable for people like me. There are some great songs.

    May be, that's indeed the case for Sarfraz. He has been a great leader & team man - even promoted Hasan Ali ahead of him to give Hasan a chance of establishing himself as a bowling all-rounder & hitter. I hope, in WC from No. 5, Sarfraz will bother more to take care of himself than other players.

    Its a no brainer that Sarfraz's battng has regressed alamingly while trying to accomodate others (especially by being acha bacha towards the seniors) and with added responsibility of captaincy. I think he lost confidence in his abilities and i believe for any kind of success self belief is really important.

    Also, not sure why Sarfraz should promote himself at 4, instead of Asif - 4 is not his regular (or assigned) spot and being Captain, I hope he is not in a stress to prove himself with bat against Northant reserves.
    275/2 in 41 overs is anything but a methodical chase! When setting target, such a score should lead to 360-380 runs easily.

    And Sarfraz batting up is exactly the right thing to do. For most of his first class career he has batted at #5 in limited over games. I am glad he's giving himself these chances, because Pakistan team need him in-form and batting in the middle overs.

    A good start to the tour by the boys with two consecutive victories. Much to my surprise was convinced we'd lose many matches against mediocre sides before coming good. No doubt many of our fans will still be whining over things like why their precious Fawad Alam was omitted from the side. We won comfortably with the batting doing well for a change. I am as happy as Larry!

    Lol. This Sarfraz will be sending the likes of Imad above himself when Pak face tough teams. I have seen this story being repeated every year with Sarfraz leading from the front against likes of Zimabwe and the moment we face tough teams he goes back to his old comfortable spot.

    Yea inshallah.

    I have all the vids backed up on my PC, however, ICC also banned/removed them from Facebook so I'm really left with nowhere to share them.

    Unfortunately due to pressure being applied by the ICC, I'm also unable to share the videos on PP.

    Sad state of affairs from the ICC - particularly when the videos are simply being used to promote the sport and nothing more.
