Pakistan will win, in shaa ALLAH.... even if we score 150 only
Mathews to bowl now.
Too defensive from Pakistan
The worrying part is that our bowling and fielding has not been as solid in the tournament; for now, we will rely on the batting to give us a very defendable total.
These two are trying rightly to stop the rot and kill the sri Lankan attack, but we need to be scoring more runs against bowlers like mathews
We do well defending low scores. Very well.
Misbah needs to find a way to rotate. He can't build pressure on Fawad like this.
Another Maiden. :fp
Back to back maidens, I know we are 3 down but need to keep things ticking
250 with our spinners I think is a winning score.
Too many dot balls now
good point especially if ajmal strikes early
There needs to be one bowler we target here. Right now, we're giving confidence to all of them.
Sri Lankan bowlers getting pretty good movement... wonder if our bowlers can do this today.
misbah will have to speed up at some stage in the game and avoid his tuk tuk
At this point Matthews can even try an experiment and give it to a part-timer.
38/3 after 14 overs.
Come on misbah there was nothing special in that over!
Pakistan is going tooooo slow
We need at least 270. SL batting is strong.
Whats wrong with fawad, just blocking around
SL batting has also been very consistent. Not sure if Pak should've batted first, given both previous wins have been pretty good chases.
That';s better, an easy 2 by fawad.
Pakistan need to keep scoring runs. Can't always rely on Afridi as it can just like any other batsman take only 1 good ball to get him out, and it doesn't always have to be a good ball to get Afridi out.
Misbah is putting pressure on him
Agree but the top order are to blame for that. These two should be sat on the balcony enjoying the game right now rather than digging us out of this hole
The situation calls for it, I don't know about you but I don't want to see Boom Boom and Umar Akmal coming in before the 35th over!
This is EXACTLY what Misbah does.
He SUCKS energy out of his partner by his inability to rotate the strike.
Tuk tuk tuk ,,, r u surprised that resulted Fawad playing a reckless shot on the first ball of the last over.
hopefully pakistan don't discard sharjeel khan. I see something special in him just needs to learn how to curb his aggression.
:rofl :rofl what a genius
Pressure of 3 wickets down.
Oh man, the running... Can't afford a run-out right now.
I love their form of gritty cricket. They just need to make sure that they keep on taking enough singles and not stop scoring out right.
hopefully alam and misbah stay at wicket till atleast 30th over and then akmal can come in and speed up the run rate
ehtesham - Your take on this? - Fawad brought into the Squad to strengthen the batting and use his rotation of the strike, but isn't?
40/3 after 15 overs.
omg whats happening
Gotta love how graceful Fawad looks when playing strokes.
Slow and steady, we need this.
Have I missed something in the past or has Fawad always had this stance?
