InshAllah the next few hours will provide joy for Pakistan!
Shot by Imam for FOUR
Wonderful start, let's goooooooooooooo
Need to ensure no wickets are lost before the target is under the mental 200 barrier
Fakhar ditching his team once again in a very vital game, tech tech...
And Fakhar is GONE. WTH!
Straight, play straight.
Now don't lose wickets in clusters please
Block block block 4 block block block block block 4 block block block flashy edge for single - block block block block 4 block block block block out.
See the problem here?
If you don’t take singles you cannot and you will not put any pressure on the opposition - matter of fact - you only put pressure on yourself.
This is NOT T20 - try to play it accordingly.
They underestimate the value of singles.
I am worried about Imam, he's playing well but Boult might be setting him up
These guys don't take singles man
@ShokoTolo_LoloMoto you tryna eat your hat rn? Imam still out there.
Too many dots.
Man this is a quality match
Babar is too nice
No wonder there are too many dots, but as long as they keep on making run (in any form) its acceptable. Because NZ is really good and their fielding is one of the best. So its not easy to take singles.
Actually he is too soft.
Ferguson will test Pakistan with pace and short pitch bowling now.
Agreed, hopefully he learns. Maybe someone can recommend him a sports psychologist.
Shoot, 2nd one down.
I reckon instead of Hafeez they should send Harris, who can play pace better but I know it wouldnt happen.
Games in New Zealands favour now, we need a long partnership.
Oh lord these guys are crashing
Please sathyanaas na karo
So Imam played 29 balls, made 19 runs out of which three were 4's. This means, if we exclude 12 runs from 19 and 3 balls from 29, then figures become 7 runs on 26 balls, now you do the math to find his SR ...
So called seniors are the most fragile mentally - can't take pressure to save their lives.
I know Ferguson will bowl most of his bowling as bouncers.
Sounds like a woman though.
Kane is an excellent captain.
Hafeez has already played 9 balls of his 1 run, why cant you take a single geezer ???
If you stay on the crease things will get easy I guess but right now it's difficult.
Geez, why Hafeez take single on last ball when he struggle on 5 balls?
Singles go a long way in the game, especially when trying to ease scoreboard pressure.
Imam always gets out on bouncer.
Generally batsman have averages of 60+ on short length.
Hafeez is also batting terrible on bouncer.
I am not saying they dont, all I am saying is that it needs more effort to steal singles against teams like NZ. Icing on the cake, Pakistan is not good in rotating strike anyways.

Imam plays around his pads too much, as a bowler you have chances on both inside and outside edge almost every time.
His technique is overrated. He hasn't got one. Whenever someone fast comes on he starts jumping in his crease.
Just when I was about to write that Imam is going to prove me wrong. Ghattiya batsman.
