2nd Test, Day 1
| October 23, 2013
Pak won the toss and batting first.
Pak: Unchanged 11.
Dale Steyn has come through his fitness test and is okay to play. South Africa have made two changes though, Dean Elgar in for Amla, and Imran Tahir replaces Robin Peterson."
Hopefully something like 270 for 3 or 4 would be pretty good InshaAllah.
Its important that we don't lose more than 2 wickets before lunch, or it can get ugly!
Pitch Report: 'The pitch looks very dry and looks like a Day 2 pitch for me. There are a few cracks in it to keep the spinners interested and runs on the board in the first innings will put some pressure on the opposition. This is certainly a result pitch,' reckons Kepler Wessels.
Lol what a start from Pakistan
Ball 1: Swinging away from the right hander and leaves the ball.
Ball 2: Swinging away from the right hander, attempts an ambitious drive and caught at gully.
Great temperament from someone fresh off a hundred.
Good old Pakistan. Never fail to disappoint.
How many of you are enjoying Azhar ali batting?
He is batting worse than a tailender..
Really stupid shot by Manzoor to get out on the 2nd ball of the match.
manzoor's shot was really really silly. classic overconfidence.
Nice going now
after the early jitters
nice on drive from Azhar
Imran Tahir returns after that nightmarish test at Adelaide
Azhar Ali has slightly caught up after a tortuous start, he's started to look comfortable
Isn't Shan Masood looking a bit tensed up?
Fantastic Knock by Azhar.
No more wickets before Lunch please.
We're in trouble now.
PK 60/4 in 25 overs
make that 5.
what the hell ?!?!
this is ridiculous... win toss and bat, to be 60 for 5?!
wtf... 6 down.
I think Pakistan should have bowled first.. still its only first inning
Don't forget we were all out for 99 against England and still won that match.
What the hell!
60/6 now, a bunch of chickens!
Should've bowled first.
Now we'll be all out for 80 and bowlers will have to get us back in this.
lol i left home and it was 47/2
got into work and the saffie says to me 'isnt there a test match today?'
I said 'yes, the score was 47/2 when I left home'
and he replied with a smile on his face 'well its 60/6 now...'
and of all people, its the Pakistani reject Imran Tahir to get the wickets?! that hurts more than when Saj Mahmood got some wickets against us in 2006 lol
Pakistan never fail to amaze
Not a suprise Tahir took wickets. That trundler Kyle Abott also took a 7-for against us on debut
Steyn + Tahir both in my fantasy team...
What a pathetic effort. Younis dismissal was so crap. 3 plays and misses and then an edge to a wide ball. Talk about being a senior and seeing difficult periods through. P.s. Younis dismissal was the only one I saw
