    Pakistan last 8 Tests: 7 LOST and 1 WIN. What does this pattern suggest (that too in the presence of Misbah and Younis).

    It suggests that some things never chance. We lost in Australia and NZ. Nothing new

    We were beating England in England not so long ago and (if it wasnt for a last day batting debacle like today in the third test) SHOULD have won the series

    Not in NZ. We lost a series in NZ after almost 3 decades.

    Yes our test team will be a minnow from now on. A minnow with one good batsman (Azhar) and spinner (Yasir).

    no it suggests the age old pakistani problem persists, success goes to head, pak get to number one rest on laurels and bammm, before u know it youve lost 7 out of 8 tests

    ask yourself, has pak gone to any tour after england and showed up a few weeks early to play two extra side games, have a full on extended fitness camp to ensure everyones in top shape, etc.

    success is a continuous process, there is a lack of motivation, from the top. no need for wrist slitting, just go back to what works, show up in countries early and play three or four red ball side games.

    Yep they improved drastically in india but fact is the same, it was a very weak australian team.

    Warner
    Smith
    Pattinson ??
    Hazlewood ??

    Who else was really a great player in that team ?

    Finally, this hoax is being crushed forever that Misbah made us into some great outfit
    We were never a good team to have declined.
    This is just what these snails are capable of.

    Under the slogan of this forum, it says "Traditionally the Pakistan cricket team have played an exciting brand of cricket which attracts fans from India to England and everywhere in between."

    Lol thankyou misbah for taking this away from us.

    We are now officially the most boring team in the world.

    I find it amazing that there are pak fans out there that don't realise this and are perfectly happy with the dismal brand of cricket this coward has instilled.

    He even changed the ball when it was reversing on the 4th day! Can't have too much excitement can we?

    Im surprised people haven't pointed out that a good reason for this loss was the go slow in the first innings.

    I'm glad about a few things in this match. people just pick up a scorecard and look at stats. But goes to show, you can make runs and have good figures, but if you don't do it when it counts it's useless:

    Misbah 99 - useless
    Yasir 7-fer - too little too late

    I think the decline started long time ago, I can recall during the first innings when Azhar and Misbah were batting they made 98 runs in 42.2 overs, Holder and Chase did a lot better in the first innings. Captain cool & calm has instill this defensive mindset which in my opinion will take some time to go away and till then, fortunately or unfortunately we have to see these kind of results.

    I am not taking away the fact that it was the 5th day pitch, there was low bounce, but our batters can do better than this.
