    1st ODI, Pakistan tour of West Indies at Gros Islet, Apr 23 2011

    Scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/...an-1st-odi-pakistan-tour-of-west-indies-2011/

    upload_2018-4-23_10-47-46.png




    At Gros Islet, St Lucia, April 23, 2011. Pakistan won by eight wickets. Toss: West Indies. One-day international debuts: Hammad Azam, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Salman.


    As in their heavy World Cup quarter-final defeat the previous month, West Indies were throttled by Pakistan's spinners. Sammy said he was surprised to see so much turn and bounce at his home ground; it took his belligerent unbeaten 29 from 17 balls, with two sixes and three fours - along with 30 extras - to lift his side past 200. Darren Bravo laboured for 67 off 109 deliveries as Pakistan's three slow bowlers gave up just 100 runs from their combined 30 overs. The stalled progress led to the run-outs of Samuels and, in the 45th over, Bravo. Bishoo was West Indies' only recognised spinner and, although he took the two wickets to fall, Pakistan had little difficulty breezing to their modest target. Hafeez added 54 off 45 balls to his miserly bowling, then Asad Shafiq and Misbah-ul- Haq completed the job with an unbroken partnership of 134 in 24.5 overs.

    Man of the Match: Mohammad Hafeez.

    At Rawalpindi, April 24 (day/night). Pakistan won by three wickets. Toss: New Zealand.

    Despite the bad news that a knee injury had curtailed Astle's tour, New Zealand looked like levelling the series here. After Fleming, back from a stomach upset, chose to bat, McMillan stroked 105 in 116 balls, his highest one-day international score. He had solid support from Horne and Adams. All the home bowlers struggled for accuracy, and Shoaib Akhtar went wicketless. Then Imran Nazir fell first ball in Pakistan's reply, and Yousuf Youhana followed next over. But Shahid Afridi blasted 40 from 37 balls, and half-centuries from Younis Khan and Abdul Razzaq helped Pakistan reach their third-highest total chasing, and an unassailable 2-0 lead, with 17 deliveries to spare. Razzaq struck a career-best 86 from 84 balls.

    Man of the Match: Abdul Razzaq.

    He also had Azhar plumb LBW on the hat trick ball, but had sadly OVERSTEPPED.

    Would have been the second time anyone got a hat trick with all lbw's, but alas.

    2nd ODI: West Indies v Pakistan at Gros Islet, Apr 25, 2011

    Match Scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/489214.html

    Report -

    At Gros Islet, St Lucia, April 25, 2011. Pakistan won by seven wickets. Toss: Pakistan. One-day international debut: A. Martin.

    Pakistan used the same formula as in the previous match to attain the same result. Mohammad Hafeez was promoted to share the new ball, and soon had Devon Smith lbw again; this time the slow men shared six wickets for 102 runs from their 30 overs. Only Simmons, with 51 off 48 balls, came to terms with their varied spin on another helpful surface. The first mandatory powerplay brought 53 runs from ten overs, but the rate then plummeted, with Samuels pottering around for 74 balls for 29. West Indies' total was one fewer than they had managed two days earlier, and just as inadequate. Pakistan's progress to another win was slightly less hurried, as West Indies had reinforced their spin attack with the leg-breaks of the debutant Anthony Martin, a fireman from Antigua. He kept the batsmen quiet, but for the second match running Bishoo was the only home bowler to take a wicket. Ahmed Shehzad, just 19, anchored the chase with his second hundred in one-day internationals, facing 148 balls in all.

    Man of the Match: Ahmed Shehzad.

    This one is not a match per say, but important to Pakistan Cricket none the less.

    Blink and you will miss it.

    27 April 2002

    Pakistan's Shoaib Akhtar became the first man to break the 100mph barrier when he was clocked bowling to Craig McMillan at 100.04mph (161kph) during a one-day international against New Zealand in Lahore.
    The record remained unofficial - the ICC refused to sanction it as it did not have a standard measuring tool. The previous fastest recorded speed was 99.8mph by Australia's Jeff Thomson in 1975, although that did not take place during a match.

    Shoaib would go on to claim the title "officially" in a match against England during the 2003 WC.

    Austral-Asia Cup, 3rd Match: India v Pakistan at Sharjah, Apr 27, 1990

    Match scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/65819.html

    At Sharjah, April 27. Pakistan won by 26 runs. Toss: India. India's second successive defeat cost them a place in the semi-finals. Needing 236 to win, they were bowled out in the 47th over, having succumbed at vital stages to the pace of Waqar Younis. The only batting of note came from their captain, Azharuddin, whose unbeaten 78 from 98 balls included two sixes. Pakistan's innings was established by Salim Yousuf, who had been promoted to open the batting and hit a calculated 62.

    Man of the Match: Waqar Younis.

    3rd ODI: Pakistan v New Zealand at Lahore, Apr 27, 2002

    Match Scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/64767.html

    At Lahore, April 27 (day/night). Pakistan won by 66 runs. Toss: Pakistan.

    Shoaib Akhtar ostensibly broke the 100mph barrier when he clocked 161kph on a sponsor's speed gun. But the TV gun was not working, and in any case the ICC described speed records as "pretty unofficial". Previously, the fastest delivery on record was bowled by Australia's Jeff Thomson, timed at 99.8mph in the nets in 1975-76. Shoaib still failed to add to his six wickets at Karachi. Pakistan's victory owed more to Shoaib Malik, one of three home players introduced for the final game. First, Malik ran up 115, his highest international score, with 12 fours in 142 balls; he added 93 with Yousuf Youhana, who dashed to 53 in 51 balls. Then, Malik scooped three for 37, also a career-best, as New Zealand slumped to their seventh successive one-day defeat by Pakistan. Two days earlier, Malik had been married in a ceremony conducted by telephone. His bride was studying in Saudi Arabia, and he had met her during the ARY Gold Cup at Sharjah a year earlier.

    Man of the Match: Shoaib Malik.

    3rd ODI: West Indies v Pakistan at Bridgetown, Apr 28, 2011

    Misbah stays calm to secure series victory

    Match scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/489215.html

    Report - At Bridgetown, Barbados, April 28, 2011. Pakistan won by three wickets. Toss: Pakistan.

    On a pitch the polar opposite of the slow turners in St Lucia, Pakistan weathered Rampaul's opening burst of three wickets in his first two overs (and a fourth in his sixth), and secured the series at the earliest opportunity. When Pakistan were 12 for three after 19 balls, and later 49 for four, it seemed West Indies might be saved in spite of another limp batting performance - but they were thwarted by the sensible assurance of Misbah-ul-Haq, and his stand of 78 with Hammad Azam. Bishoo caused a few more flutters with three quick wickets to leave Pakistan tottering at 148 for seven with less than ten overs remaining - morning rain had reduced this to a 45-over match - but Misbah was entrenched, and Wahab Riaz clouted two sixes to ensure victory. Earlier, West Indies had again faltered against spin: after Simmons and Darren Bravo had put on 86 for the second wicket, the last eight tumbled for 53.

    Man of the Match: Misbah-ul-Haq.

    Austral-Asia Cup, 5th Match: Pakistan v Sri Lanka at Sharjah, Apr 29, 1990

    Scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/65821.html

    Report - At Sharjah, April 29. Pakistan won by 90 runs. Toss: Sri Lanka. After a solid start from Salim Yousuf and the left-handed Saeed Anwar, Javed Miandad and Ijaz Ahmed set about the Sri Lankan bowling in the most thrilling manner. Miandad's 75 came from 85 balls and included five fours, while Ijaz hit three sixes and eight fours in an electrifying 89 off 65 deliveries. Waqar Younis never allowed the Sri Lankan batsmen time to take up the challenge and finished with six for 26 from his ten overs. Ratnayake provided a momentary respite to Pakistan's dominance by hitting three sixes in his nineteen-ball 26.

    Man of the Match: Ijaz Ahmed.

    Report -
    At Lahore, May 1, 2, 3. Pakistan won by an innings and 324 runs. Toss: Pakistan. Test debut: R. G. Hart.

    In three days, Pakistan recorded the fifth-biggest victory in Test cricket, thanks to two outstanding performances: a triple-century from Inzamam-ul-Haq, and six for 11 from Shoaib Akhtar. Both were hobbling by the end of the second day - Inzamam from cramp, Shoaib after spraining an ankle.

    But New Zealand were the real casualties. It was all downhill for them after the opening over, when Shahid Afridi gave the new wicket-keeper, Robbie Hart, his first Test dismissal. From then on, both seamers and spinners wilted on the docile pitch as temperatures soared. The first day was dominated by centuries from Imran Nazir, recalled for his first Test in 17 months, and Inzamam. Nazir reached three figures with his third six, just before tea, and they had put on 204 together in just under four hours when he was spectacularly caught by the diving Richardson at mid-on. Inzamam completed his 16th Test hundred in the next over with a crisp four off Vettori. He struck the ball delightfully, driving and cutting at every opportunity, as he added 94 with Yousuf Youhana; his only blemish in a power-packed innings came on 110, when he drove Vettori uppishly but was dropped by Vincent.

    Inzamam continued with his usual flamboyance on the second day, advancing to his second double-hundred in Tests shortly before lunch. He had begun to suffer from cramp, and was allowed to use a runner for three overs before the interval; afterwards, the privilege was withdrawn. Struggling to run singles and twos, Inzamam made up for it by hitting more loose deliveries to the fence, or over it. He was 250 when Saqlain was seventh out, after a partnership of 111, but hurried on, pushing a single to cover off Harris after tea to reach Pakistan's second triple-century in Tests, following Hanif Mohammad's 337 against West Indies at Bridgetown in 1957-58. His first 100 had come in 191 balls, the second in 132, and the third, which contained seven fours and four sixes, at a run a ball. After adding 78 with Shoaib Akhtar - a ninth-wicket record for Pakistan against New Zealand - he hit three sixes in an over from Brooke Walker's leg-breaks and was caught at long-on attempting a fourth. Last out, he had made 329, the tenth-highest score in Test history, in a stay of 579 minutes and 436 balls, from which he smashed 38 fours and nine sixes.

    Now it was Shoaib's turn. He did not bowl flat out, as in the one-day series, but controlled his line and length, occasionally slipping in one at a brisker pace. His lethal yorkers claimed four for four in 25 balls - all bowled - to leave New Zealand reeling on 21 for four. Shoaib sprained an ankle, losing his balance in his follow-through, and was absent at the start of the third morning. But he limped back on to finish the innings with two more wickets in eight deliveries, without conceding another run, for a career-best six for 11 from only 8.2 overs. It took his tally for the season to 23 wickets in five Tests at an average of 16.65 and a strike rate of 30. The tourists sank from their overnight 58 for six to 73 all out, the lowest total in Tests at Lahore, and followed on a massive 570 behind.

    Shoaib did not return and, despite losing Horne in the first over, New Zealand looked more confident. They were a respectable 186 for three on the third evening, thanks to a captain's innings from Fleming, supported by Vincent and Harris. But the last seven wickets toppled for 60 in 20 overs. Danish Kaneria took his fourth five-for in eight Tests with his bouncy leg-breaks.

    It was Pakistan's biggest Test victory, surpassing an innings and 264 against Bangladesh in August, and New Zealand's heaviest defeat. Fleming called it "a tough day in the office", admitting that his side were "outplayed and outclassed".

    Man of the Match: Inzamam-ul-Haq.
    Close of play: First day, Pakistan 355-4 (Inzamam-ul-Haq 159); Second day, New Zealand 58-6 (Hart 2, Vettori 0).

    Austral-Asia Cup, 1st SF: New Zealand v Pakistan at Sharjah, May 1, 1990

    Match Scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/65823.html

    Report - At Sharjah, May 1. Pakistan won by eight wickets. Toss: New Zealand. Having elected to bat, the New Zealanders were humiliated by the young Pakistan fast bowler, Waqar Younis, who finished with five wickets for 20 in nine overs to assure Pakistan of a place in the final. Pakistan reached their target in the sixteenth over for the loss of only two wickets. New Zealand never recovered from being 44 for four by the fifteenth over, and only Jones, who was last out, came to terms with the struggle. He hit four boundaries in his 47 from 85 deliveries.

    Man of the Match: Waqar Younis.

    4th Match, Group A: Bangladesh v Pakistan at Gros Islet - May 1, 2010

    Match Scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/world-twenty20-2010/engine/match/412680.html

    Report - Pakistan survived a Mohammad Ashraful scare to begin the defence of their world title at St Lucia with a 21-run win over Bangladesh. Kamran Akmal and Salman Butt had laid the foundations with a 142-run stand that should've put the game beyond Bangladesh. But Ashraful, with Shakib Al Hasan for company, took a real pop at an imposing 173-run target, before Mohammad Sami swung a slow-burning game decisively Pakistan's way.

    Bangladesh had been poor for vast chunks of the game, first with the ball, and then in starting the chase. But Ashraful's forceful 91-run stand with Shakib brought them close enough to get Pakistan jittery with five overs to go. Sami, on his T20I debut, ensured it wasn't to be with a fine two-wicket over to effectively end the game.

    Mohammad Aamer had throttled Bangladesh's start and Ashraful arrived with trouble brewing. Having typically tried all manner of unnecessary improvisation initially, Ashraful settled down to playing normal strokes. It's asked often why he doesn't play those more, and let this be another time. He quickly deposited Abdul Razzaq for a wonderful six over midwicket, but really cranked up the heat when he took on Pakistan's captain next.

    The first ball of Shahid Afridi's spell, the 11th over, was driven exquisitely over extra cover but it was in his next over that he really shook Pakistan up. Again he lofted Afridi, but with such grace and timing that the ball fairly sailed over long-off. A couple of balls later, he went squarer and soon after brought up his fifty.

    Shakib meanwhile was showing the world once again why he is such a special young man. He never panicked, which can't often be said of Ashraful, and went about choosing his spots almost at will. Saeed Ajmal was heaved for one and Mohammad Hafeez was slog-swept for two maximums and suddenly Bangladesh had recovered from 36 for 2 to 115 for two after 14.

    As so often, however, it wasn't to be and the surprise was that it was Shakib who perished first. Afridi took a gamble in bringing back an uncertain Sami, but it paid off as Shakib fell and Mahmudullah followed a few balls later. Ashraful still went on, dishing out some serious stick to Afridi, before falling, inevitably, to an improvised paddle, signaling a brave end.

    Pakistan's big bonus, alongside Sami's effort, was Butt's earlier contribution. He has appeared ill-suited to the format, unable to work gaps and not blessed with the power that gets poorer batsmen more runs. But he has a good ODI record and the intent was there from the start with a first-ball boundary. From thereon, at regular intervals he would dance down, move away, find gaps or go aerial and went about as quietly as you can in reaching fifty off 29 balls. There was no violence, just clear-headed intent and faith in his regular strokes.

    His improved leg-side game was on display as well; in three successive overs after the 10th, he swept Shakib, slog-swept Abdur Razzak and slapped debutant Suhrawadi Shuvo over long-on for sixes.

    Akmal gave him predictable company, almost immediately trying to set the agenda. A bold statement was made against left-arm spin - Bangladesh's most potent weapon - straight away, as he twice swept away Abdur Razzak in the second over.

    He was the one who took risks, almost paying for it when a miscued pull was fluffed by Ashraful. They were to pay for it as Akmal did what he does best. Out came the cuts, the scything cover drives, the pulls and the occasional mind-boggling slap over extra cover. All the while singles and doubles flowed on the large ground, giving Akmal a comfortable 73.

    Bangladesh were unable to string together an over of good balls. It wasn't until the 16th over, when they claimed Akmal finally, that they bowled an over without conceding at least one boundary. They recovered, not allowing any more in the final overs but the damage had been done.

    5th ODI: Australia v Pakistan at Abu Dhabi, May 3, 2009

    Match Scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakvaus2009/engine/current/match/392620.html

    Report - A scintillating century from Kamran Akmal helped guide Pakistan to book-ending victories in the five-match ODI series against Australia. Akmal's knock off 115 balls, his fifth ODI century, meant he top scored in both of Pakistan's successful run-chases this series and begged the question as to why he had not batted in the top four throughout.

    Akmal combined superbly with Misbah-ul-Haq to reel in Australia's total, the highest run-chase of this tough series, after being thrust together with Pakistan in trouble at 56 for 3. Their unbroken stand of 198 was an ODI record for the fourth wicket against Australia.

    Misbah was the ideal foil for Akmal, who was ignited by Misbah's energetic running, and the pair complimented each other perfectly to frustrate the Australian bowlers. While Akmal pounced on any width from either the fast bowlers or spinners, flaying the majority of his 13 boundaries through the off side, Misbah walked across his crease frequently, working the bowlers into the vast expanses on the on-side. Their running between the wickets was outstanding but it was the constant flow of boundaries that kept the scoring rate high.

    Pakistan began their pursuit horrendously with another terrible mix-up between Ahmed Shehzad and Salman Butt, resulting in Butt's run-out in the first over without facing a ball. The problems compounded when Younis Khan, after his most fluent innings of the series, holed out to deep long-on and Shehzad made a horrible error in judgement to gift Nathan Hauritz two wickets and leave Pakistan struggling at 56 for 3.

    But the promotion of Akmal proved a master-stroke from Younis while the experience of Misbah was invaluable.

    Australia had one chance to break the pair. Michael Clarke could have ended a cramping Akmal's day on 97 as he strained for a single. The usually deadly Clarke missed from backward point and from there it was a fait accompli with Akmal cutting loose after Pakistan took the batting Powerplay in the 46th over.

    It was a disappointing result for the Australians after they produced their best batting display of the series on the back of Shane Watson 's second one-day international century

    Watson's unbeaten 146-ball stay was a superb mixture of power and patience as Australia controlled the opening half of the dead rubber and pushed for a 4-1 result.

    The Queenslander continued a rich vein of form following his 85 not out on Friday, but today he was far more fluent. He punished the bad balls that were presented. He was particularly vicious on anything fractionally short - the highlights being two massive straight sixes complimenting six boundaries. But a real feature was his composure against the spinners that have so frustrated him throughout this series.

    Watson was the anchor to three partnerships of more than 50 - the highest was an unconquered 84 with Callum Ferguson . Ferguson, starved for opportunities through most of this series, overcame a nervous start to provide sound support for Watson finishing with 41 not out. Neither player panicked despite an unproductive batting Powerplay. However they did have a near-calamitous mix-up, with Ferguson fortunate to escape thanks to an awkward throw that was not collected by Saeed Ajmal. But for the most part the running was sound whilst Ferguson's placement and timing was superb.

    Earlier, Watson and Brad Haddin (36) produced the brightest opening stand of the campaign by racing to 51 in just eight overs with some glorious strokeplay on a very good batting surface.

    After conceding 71 from the first ten overs, Younis Khan applied the brakes in the form of Ajmal and Shahid Afridi. The spinners operated through the bowling Powerplay, with Ajmal claiming Marcus North with a crafty piece of work from around the wicket. He delivered a doosra first before flighting an offbreak that lured a tentative North down the track and Akmal completed the simple stumping.

    Ajmal and Afridi were the pick of the bowlers but could not wreak the havoc they did in the first match in Dubai.

    Clarke and Watson picked up where they left off last Friday combining for 57, before Umar Gul found some reverse-swing in an impressive second spell to find Clarke's prized outside edge.

    Australia took their batting Powerplay in the 36th over but could not capitalize as Younis again held his nerve turning to his two most experienced spinners in Afridi and Shoaib Malik.

    Austral-Asia Cup, Final: Australia v Pakistan at Sharjah, May 4, 1990


    Match Scorecard - http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/65825.html

    At Sharjah, May 4. Pakistan won by 36 runs. Toss: Pakistan. Pakistan's mercurial all-rounder, Wasim Akram, hitting 49 off 35 deliveries and later finishing the Australian innings with a hat-trick, enabled Pakistan to retain the trophy they won four years earlier when they beat India, with a six by Javed Miandad, off the last ball. With almost four overs left, Australia required 37 to win with three wickets in hand, but Akram dashed any hopes they might have entertained by clean-bowling Hughes, Rackemann and Alderman. The architect of Pakistan's innings was Salim Malik, whose polished 87 from 104 balls contained a six and seven fours. Saeed Anwar got them going with a swashbuckling 40 from 37 balls, but it needed Akram's devastating hitting to bring 60 runs from the last five overs and so set the Australians a challenging target. Two of his three sixes came in the final over, both landing in the stands, as he took 18 runs off O'Donnell. Leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed's three wickets put the brake on Australia after Waugh and O'Donnell had added 54 for the fifth wicket.

    Man of the Match: Wasim Akram.

    On this day, back in the year 1991 against Australia during the final match of Austral-Asia Cup also known as Sharjah Cup; Pakistani pacer Wasim Akram claimed his second ODI hat-trick in less than a year span. With this hat-trick, Akram also became the first ever bowler to take a hat-trick in ODI final of a tournament. Moreover, all the three wickets of his hat-trick were bowled and the victims were Merv Hughes, Carl Rackemann and Terry Alderman. Akram also became the first bowler to take multiple hat-tricks in ODIs. His hat-trick ended the Australian innings as they were bowled out for 230 and Pakistan won the final by 36 runs. In addition, Akram had also scored 35-ball 49 not out earlier in the match to help Pakistan score 266-7.

    Pepsi Independence Cup, 6th Match: India v Pakistan at Chennai, May 21, 1997 Saeed Anwar 194 v India - https://www.cricistan.com/threads/on-this-day-when-all-was-saeed-and-done-against-india.41140/

    Match Scorecard -
    http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/66113.html
    Toss: Pakistan.

    Saeed Anwar broke the record for the highest individual innings in a one-day international by scoring 194, from 146 balls, with 22 fours and five sixes, three in succession in one over from Kumble, which went for 226664. He beat the previous record, Viv Richards's unbeaten 189 for West Indies against England at Old Trafford in 1984, by five, and might have reached a double-hundred had he not top-edged a sweep to be caught at fine leg in the 47th over. It was a remarkable exhibition of controlled aggression, even if he was helped by a runner, Shahid Afridi, for most of the innings (he was suffering from heat exhaustion and loss of fluid). India were left a target of 328. They began on a poor note when Inzamam-ul-Haq took an athletic catch to dismiss Tendulkar, but Dravid sustained them with his maiden hundred in limited-overs internationals - also briefly assisted by a runner, Tendulkar, until the fielding side objected. They soon fell behind, however, after he pushed a catch to mid-wicket, one of five wickets for Aqib Javed. Afterwards, Tendulkar said Anwar's innings was the best he had seen, and the former Test bowler Bishen Bedi said batting like that comes once in a lifetime. Some observers - including TV commentator Glenn Turner - diluted their praise by noting that his runner made the innings much easier, given the extreme heat. Anwar himself said: "To beat India in India is something special. Only we know the pressure we were subjected to back at home after our loss at Bangalore in the World Cup." In contrast to past bitterness in India-Pakistan matches, the 45,000 crowd gave him a standing ovation.

    Man of the Match: Saeed Anwar.

    A World Cup hat-trick for Saqlain Mushtaq, as Pakistan thrashed Zimbabwe by 148 runs in the Super Six match at The Oval. Given the men he dismissed, it's one he might remember quite sheepishly: Henry Olonga (one-day international average: 4.36), Adam Huckle (2.25), and Pommie Mbangwa (4.71) were never in danger of doing much tail-wagging. But a World Cup hat-trick is a World Cup hat-trick: this was only the second, and Saqqy also became the second man (Wasim Akram was the first) to take two hat-tricks in ODIs.

    According to Pak fans, cricket in last 1.5 decades is divided into 4 phases:

    1) Pre 2012 - Miandad's last ball six.
    2) 2012-2014 - Aane do Series
    3) 2014-2017 - Asia cup and Afridi's 2 sixes
    4) Post 2017 - Champions Trophy final

    Who cares how many thrashings we get in between from India...we are Pak fans (aka delusional) and we only remember those above games :D

    Hold on to CT win folks...because it will take a long time for your team to fluke another win over India. I can already visualize the hammering we are going to dish out in Asia cup (2 matches) and ultimately on 16th June 2019
    :p;):):p

    By fluke, I didn't mean Pak played badly. They played like champions...no doubt. But India was extremely unlucky that day. Its one of those days nothing went our way, as if entire world is against us. Kedar Jadhav missing easy run out of Fakhar when he was on 0, Bumrah's dismissal off Zaman on a no ball, catches falling in no man's land...even Pak's mishits were going for sixes. The only batsman played well for us (Pandya)...got run out.

    Anyway...I don't think it hurts more than Mohali did to Pak fans. We already had 2 CT before 2017 but that Mohali win was a ticket for a world cup glory as SL was there for taking. Not able to play WC final and lift the trophy in Mumbai gonna hurt Pak fans until they does something special in 2023 WC in India.
