    Why cant we just play normal planned cricket. Its as simple as this. You dont need to do anything different to beat Australia. If you just play the normal cricket that you play, you can beat Australia I am 100 per cent sure! Everytime they visit Ausrtralia, they just get overexcited and all of a sudden start this mantra and play reckless cricket all of a sudden!!

    Normal cricket means that you bat in a normal manner with a planned approach. Everytime they visit Australia, they try to play over aggressively and try to take Aussies head on and they are in some sort of hurry!! They just need to take their time, assess the pitch, assess the situation and play according to these conditions! There is no need for them to just try to bully Australia! Thats just not possible! You got to assess your opponent before you can down him!! There is no strategy no game plan, just that talk about fighting fire with fire! Cricket is played with mind, its a mind game, you need to work out the opponent, the situation, the conditions if you have to be successful!!

    So if i may recall the last T20 series against SL was at home. So was that normal cricket or did we just got excited again ?. We need to have the right coach. These guys were once fighters. Look at Shadab, Imad, Fakher, their body language looks weak and confused.

    The last tour of Aus there was no bullying. Misbah was opening the bowling with Yasir Shah in some matches.

    Result? Humiliating 3-0 loss again.

    Last time we played so well and gave Aussies a real run for the money particularly in that first test. Results could have been in our favor had Yasir Shah not forgotten completely how to bowl!! Batsmen were putting runs on the board but Yasir Shah failed to respond the way we wanted him to!!

    Just forget about the slankan series. Sri Lanka always do well in Asian conditions! Aussie conditions were always going to be a challenge for us!!

    Haha! We were chasing a world record score and fair play we got close. But if you are chasing a WC score, then you have done pretty poorly for the rest of the game. Credit to shafiq and co for the effort, but that was the only decent thing in the whole series. We got battered in the other tests where it was a very shameful performance.

    Probably the worst captaincy I’ve ever seen and the aussie commentators seemed to concur especially Ian chappal

    2nd test mein bhi we had put 400+ on the board but Australia ki 1st innings mein Warner took on Yasir Shah aur uske haath paon phul gaye the! 3rd test mein Younus got 170+ in last innings i think!

    Aus has been humiliating us for donkey years. Even with our superstars of yesteryears. Having Misbah there in the last tour didn’t make it any worse. It was the same bakwaas.

    Yasir Shah ki waja se haare last time. Batsmen did their job!! We were reliant on Yasir Shah in bowling aur Yasir ne dhoka de diya for the 1st time in his entire career!!

    That’s not the point of this thread. OP said we are losing because we are being over aggressive. My point is the last tour was anything but aggressive and same result.

    In fact probably the meekest effort ever against a very average Aus side.

    Last tour we played well and only lost cus Yasir Shah lost the plot completely. He was getting advice on spin bowling from Shane Warne, which were not working at all and infact backfiring. Warne was asking Yasir Shah to give loop to the ball, trying to make him bowl in a similar way as he himself used to bowl. But Warne did not take into account that Yasir is a different leg spinner to Warne! Yasir Shah is more similar to Abdul Qadir and relies on his googly and leg spinners more. Before advising a leg spinner or any bowler, you first got to see what is his bowling style and technique of bowling! Warne's advice backfired for Yasir and Pakistan were heavily reliant on Yasir to win us that series and he couldn't deliver, as a result Pakistan lost that series!!
    Yasir Shah just needed to do what he usually does! Just bowl the line that he bowls day in and day out!! There again, he tried to do something extraordinary/ As a result, paid the price not only him but also the team!!
