And theyve started.

Afridi and Salman will open.

0.1 Pathan to Salman, one run, flicked to deep square leg, off the mark straight away and brings Afridi on strike.
0.2 Pathan to Afridi: SIX!, Goodness me! Good length ball outside the offstump, Afridi comes charging down the track and murders it out of the stadium.

:))) U wish.

Patience my friend
 
Yep but teams batting second at the National Stadium have generally faired better. This might be the most important coin toss of the series.
 
kaash..................:) i have a feeling now that they might go with kami n butt .......just as a one off...................n UJ ur right on the money lets hope for the best........since raz is eating his naan kabab i should go n fix ma self up with something as well!!
 
Just realised i forgot the other four balls so here goes

0.3 Pathan to Afridi, SIX! Another one!! Pathan goes for the yorker, but Afridi being the beast he is obliterates it back past the bowler and the balls mashes into the advertising boards.
0.4 Pathan to Afridi, SIX! Hat-trick!!!! Short delivery this time and it is fearlessly hooked way way over the ropes and into the crowd.
0.5 Pathan to Afridi SIX!! This is amazing!!! Good length ball from Pathan, Afridi comes down the track again but this time slog sweeps him!! What a sight!!
0.6 Pathan to Afridi SIX! 5 in a row!! Afridi! Afridi! Slower ball thats been annihilated out of Karachi. No chance of ever seeing that ball again!! End of an eventful over!!

i love it raz :))

0.3 pathan to afridi:SIX,again.This time slightly short swinging away from afridi and he helps it on its way by crashing it over extra cover.

there has been a delay.Looks like a poor bystander has been hurt by that shot into the crowd.It was too quick for him.Oh wait its harbhajan singh!Apparently he has been laughing at pathan when afridi hit that shot.

Amazing bro!!! Just love it!!!!!!!
 
Waqar comments in straight drive that "we ( subcontinent batsmen ) are not that technically sound" to play in green tracks... i guess compared to english batsmen???

!!!
 
Hey if anyone sees a banner saying "Hey Hasan, This is Zohaib" please inform me in this thread
 
The grass is being left on the pitch!

Faisal was practicing not sure if its confirmed for sure that Inzamam will not play.

This might mean same bowling line up as last match and Razzaq to stay to add batting in absence of Inzamam?
 
on the pitch report mic holding thinks it will be more suited to the fast bowlers then the spinners ...n as the day game progreses n the pitch dries out it will become more quicker....whereas shiva thinks that the damp beneath the surface will help spinners as well.......................not for till the toss peeps soon as they come out will tell u who it is either inzi or younis khan!
 
Inzamam is out, India won the toss and will bowl first. Ganguly brought in to the Indian side for Harbhajhan!
 
n the manhoos khan loses the tosss .........n dravid bowling first.................
 
Yep its confirmed India won the toss and will field first

India have one change Gangs comes on for Bhajji

Younis will captain Pakistan
 
Elan Tedronai said:
can some tell us who is in and out

India : Harbhajan out, Ganguly in

Pakistan : Inzi, Shoaib Malik out, Faisal Iqbal, Imran Farhat in
 
Salman, Imran F, Younis, MoYo, Faisal I, Afridi, Razzaq, Kamran, Shoaib, Asif, Kaneria
 
Saurav is back, It is Harbhajan who has made way for him, rest of the team is the same as the previous match. Younis Khan leads the side in the absence of Inzy, Faisal Iqbal comes in place of Inzamam and Shoaib Malik has been replaced by Imran Farhat!
 
NO Inzi, no Rana, and we lose the toss, man we need to really fight hard
here. I hope I'm wrong, but avoiding a loss will be the team's instructions now.

CM'ON BOYS, GO FOR THE WIN! YOU CAN DO IT !

Farhat plays along with Iqbal! No Sami Cavin I called right :)
too bad.we couldnt place a bet onit or who knows what would have happend... :p u could have become a millionaire ;-) cav runs away in shock (what a weak bowling attack this match is definitly fixed :|:|
 
Great chance for Imran Farhat and Faisal Iqbal to show their talents.

Faisal gets a chance in front of his home crowd.

cav hides away from farah :|


I wanted Pak to bowl first :( I knew that once Inzamam isnt playing bowling wnt change Razzaq wud stay bcoz he can bat, Gud luck Pakistan!
 
peeeps if we pull this one off then i dont know what i would be doing but im not quite sure right now:| playing both razi n asif.......................might be make or break for poor asif :| but anyways all the very best to our boys n may this test match be as cracking as 2004 n 2005 tests!!! now cav in shock mode for the next 15 odd minutes :|
 
sorry guys,I dont understand u r team selection..Its a pitch with some little help to bowlers and u dont pick Sami,Rana???? and go with Razzaq?Still doesnt seem like Pak is looking to win.Rather they are playing to not lose.I think this will prove costly.

match is fixed ;-)
 
i must say paks mid order looks very vulnerable.......iqbal/afridi /razi......hmm what a difference inzi makes ehhh

Was this the same Razzaq who along with Kami saved a Test match against India?

Inshallah all three will score centuries. :p
 
field first ... obviously expecting some early movement. farhat and butt to the rescue, though both will be a tad nervous. the odds were against us as far as the toss was concerned, and a brave decision by dravid to field first after all that has gone on in this series.
 
I'm so depressed, I knew if Inzi didn't play they would aim for the draw, as taps said,
could be very dangerous.

I think management thinks so, a good 40 in each innings will be gud. They dnt trust Faisal Iqbal thats y Razzaq is playing, with a fit Inzamam we wud prob have brought in Gul or Rana.
