I hope Asif isnt playing in this masala match. He should be rested as and when we get a chance.
 
It is exactly 2 hours and 26 minutes away

Sux for me because I will be in school
 
So is it 1600 or 1730?

Can someone check their personal planner on their sky/ntl box!!
 
Its 1600. David Gower and co confirmed it this morning.

I hope so but they never do, I live in UAE and am never able to watch Twenty20 internationals...

Checked Sky and it is at 16.00
 
From the PakPassion countdown to a game on the main page it works out 16:30 ? i hope its at 16:00 so i get to see the 1st half at work and then go home during the break and watch the 2nd half at home lol !!
 
Any audio links guys? Damn them Fox Sports! How hard can it be to show a Twenty20 match?!

Yes completely agree with you. I don't think Pakistan should be risking the likes of Asif and Inzamam in a 20/20 game especially considering Inzy has a bad back and Asif is Pakistan's only inform bowler left in South Africa.

My sides for this match would be the following:

South Africa
1. Smith- Captain
2. Bosman
3. van Wky- Wicket Keeper
4. AB
5. Kemp
6. Pollock
7. Bodi
8. Morkel
9. van der Wath
10. Robbie P
11. Thomas

Pakistan
1. Mohammad Hafeez
2. Imran Farhat
3. Younis Khan- Captain
4. Yasir Hameed
5. Abdul Razzaq
6. Afridi
7. Zulqarnain Haider- Wicket Keeper
8. Rana
9. Abdur Rehman
10. Sami
11. Ahmed/Gul

Oh yes, my bad, well I didn't know Farhat wasn't in RSA I thought he had been picked for the one day squad.

But yes I'de play Ahmed than instead of Gul.
 
hope it don't rain. two reasons:

i wana see some fireworks and also pak players need match practise and a chance to get into some form. the likes of afridi,malik,razzaq,hafeez and nazir need some match practise and a chance to prove their critics wrong.
 
15 minutes to go. If it is raining right now its probably going to affect the start of the match

This is an interesting team to field. I didn't expect both keepers in the team. Lets see what happens
 
pollock making the ball sing ,Nazir looks uncomfortable ,but sliced one for a boundry
 
The ball is swinging big time.. i cant see our lot lasting the 20 overs lol ...
 
Ok now thats bad for Pakistan. Losing a wicket in the very first over not a good sign
 
2.3 Pollock to Akmal, FOUR!!, short of length delivery wide outside the off stump, Akmal reaches for it and cuts it square of the wicket, a lot of power and perfect placement

Akmal off the mark !!!!!!!!!!
