    From where you bring this betting thing. No one gives a damn about these odds. In fact I am hearing for first time this. Pakistan were firm favorites in 1996, 1999 even in 1987 also when we bottled against Australia in SF.

    You are referring to favourites, that is a reference to betting favourite. I keep an eye on these markets and Pakistan have never been favs to win a major tournament.

    2014 - As I said regarding Kamran and Malik, they are to blame.

    2011 - One Man's Fault and that is according to you ofcourse.
    2007 T20 - That is also according to you one mans fault.
    2007 WC - Just a HORRIBLE time, no choking.

    I wasn't born in 1996 an too young in 1999, and if we did choke back then, it's long gone.

    I get what AP is saying .We basically make the game harder for ourselves and sometimes even lose from a winning position .There's never a straight forward win for us .

    So according to your theory individuals are at fault on different occasions. The team is made out of 11 individual players and my point is that the team chokes. Now that might be a fault of one player 2 , 3 or more. But in the end people will say that Pakistan choked not the individual players. It is a team game and all should take the blame or praise if they do well.

    What a joke.

    You named Misbah as the SOLE REASON of defeat of the 2011 WC SF and the 2007 T20 WC and now you come and tell me cricket is a team game.

    Oh I'm sorry.

    I didn't know that defending yourself for being called delusional was a dumb act. Oh and I was called delusional for what? Oh right, expressing my opinion.

    Who sounds dumb now.

    Was a waste of time arguing with you. Good Night Mr. I am always right.

    I've always heard from these experts that Pakistan CAN win the tournament because they know that we have the potential. They also know that we have the potential to collapse at any moment.

    This WI loss, did you see any of the experts being shocked that we collapsed? No. Because no one would put their money where their mouth is and actually consider Pakistan THE team to win the cup.

    I don't care what Pakistani fans think, we weren't favorites in my point of view, and not good enough to deserve the favorites tag. I still think AP is misinterpreting what a choke actually is.

    iAd ASLI-PATHAN Both of you, grow up and act mature. It's better if you both stay away from this thread for a while, to avoid derailing this thread any further.

    ^ Topic;

    Pakistan is not choker, but had a bad start which led to change the game outcome in favor of West Indies. The early dismissal can do to any team. Time to move on. In game, losing and winning are part of the game. Don't take it too seriously.
