    Even though on paper Australia is better man for man, they're in lethal form, Starc is out performing all our bowlers despite our guys doing well, there batting is much superior, fielding they beat us hands down but .....

    I think all Pak fans should just put emotions and passions over logic as neither does our team play by logic nor have we ever won via logic .... Besides this stuff comes around every 4 years, so we only have brief moments to indulge in our emotions and 4 years to assassinate the PCB, team management, captain etc so lets just take a step back and for a brief moment experience the emotional rollercoaster rides of a Pakistan fan :shrug.

    P.S - We'll destroy Australia, In Shaa Allah!

    Excellent post! No one ever gets this when I try to explain it - Pakistan team knows no stats or logic. It's all about emotion and passion. We know the ability is there and Pakistan's ceiling is way higher than Australia's (bowling anyway). So, let's get out there and win ayyyyyyy wooooooot.

    The one thing that I've noticed has seriously changed, is the belief. There was so much doubt, no one believed in us winning. Well now our team has that fighting spirit. I feel like they will give it their all. Bowlers are in awesome form. Wahab is fantastic right now. Sohail was bowling brilliantly the other day as well.

    I think we should try to bat first. Score 280+ (We are capable right now. Umar's record against Australia is apparently really good. Afridi hasn't performed insanely well for a while, so I see something coming. Sarfraz will take on any bowler. Maqsood might get into touch this match)

    I think we need to realise that we won only one match against good team.. rest of our wins were against minnows. Same bowling ans batting line up flopped against India and Windies.. even against minnows we conceded 200+ and didnt have any great outing with bat except UAE which was also down to plenty of dropped catches.

    We had only one good game and that was a typical choke by SA. . Doesnt mean we will beat everyone now. England also beat SA at group stage in 2011 when SA beat everyone imcluding host India. .but England didnt go any far.

    We had to face Australia/NZ at some stage and lock horns with them to have a shot at claiming championship. Now that it's time, let's see if this team is "Pakistani" enough to kill giants of the game.

    Bro that's not the point, it's all fair and honest to admit that we'll lose to Australia, fair enough .... No one is disputing your point.

    The issue is, you will have a billion chances to target the core issues of us potentially losing the World Cup, the players, PCB, management will be in for strong criticism as everyone starts to take apart the theory of us being extra superb at the World Cup, the point is, you get this oppourtunity rarely, every 4 years to be exact, so what's wrong if you just indulge in what your heart believes at it's depth that "Pakistan will upset Australia", just let your emotions take over for once man, this chance is rare, why risk ruing it in the future.

    Logic dictates Australia will win, but not every game is won by logic otherwise SA would have dominated the group stages, considering their line up both bowling and batting wise, their superior fielding etc.

    Yeah sounds just like australia run other than the fact that Australia comprehensively beat all minnows and arent humiliated by anyone.. even their single loss was by only one wicket compare to Pakistan humiliating defeats against India & Windies.

    Coming to this world cup, Pakistan had won 2 out of 12 matches. .whereas Australia defeated Pakistan, SA, England and India all comprehensively.. they didnt reach to number 1 ranking by winning only one match.

    Furthermore, they dont need to wet themselves over a single win against good team in world cup.. they have been having a magnificent run form for a while unlike Pakistan who had a rare win against top team after almost a year.

    South Africa has had an incredible run as well and now look at them. Lost to India badly and crumbled to Pakistan.

    The World Cup is a different ball game and any run of form prior to the world cup is almost irrelevant.

    IN ODI it depends on that given day one batsmen scoring hundred or bowler taking five wickets can put the match in your favor so lets put the faith in this team and believe we can do it

    I have faith man, I can't wait for this game.

    For some reason though, I can't shake the fact that we're supposed to win this game so ICC can have another Pakistan India semi-final, only for India to beat us again. I know it's paranoia and not possible, but still, the feeling exists.

    You guys are worried about facing India in semis, I'm worried about facing NZ in the final. They are still bitter about 92.

    True, but I'll take the loss against NZ in the final if we beat India in Semis. That's how I feel right now, at least.

    the way umar and sarfraz were timing the ball last match, if they both can perform we have a good chance. our bowling is doing well anyways. Afridi, at some point of the match, will have to perform. he is a very important player.

    I know that feeling man. I'm afraid of match-fixing like crazy. Can't even trust our players it feels like.
