Another session and a half of leather chasing, a dropped catch, some good bowling followed by some kamakaze batting to follow (when Pakistan are batting)

I have seen us getting out faster when we go in our shell. Our players just don't know when to be defensive and when to play attacking cricket. Prime example is the 2nd test. we lost because we rushed to make runs. However you may be right about the weather factor.kingusama92 said:My estimation is based on the weather and the fact that this pitch is flat. He will need to entice our batsmen into thinking that they can achieve this target if his team is to bowl us out.
If our batsman go into a shell, it'll become really tough to dislodge them on this pitch.

That 100 overs were with runouts of MoYo and Umar Akmal. They will think almost same overs required because more pressure on Pakistan and Day 5 pitch
Omar Malik said:The whole management is to be held responsible for this attitude of Pakistani cricketers on this tour so far!
if anyone to blame. blame must be on YK. Now just image, if YK didn't resign, who would be leading the side here. Why is YK being spared for jumping the sinking ship?. lol. so much double standard here. Moyo can do what he can. He is not a good captain for sure, but he was given the captaincy so live with it. Probably this is his last series as a captain and then we will bring on the quitter again. Just patheticOmar Malik said:The whole management is to be held responsible for this attitude of Pakistani cricketers on this tour so far!

Omar Malik said:With the uneven bounce and a few keeping low they're likely to be LBW's and bowled rather than caught at slip or gully!
No, its because its only going to get worse later on therefore Pakistan will have to bat in the conditions where its staying lowest hence more likely to be out lb/bowled.TalhaSyed said:Yes i get that but its embarasing that he had to add "in the Pakistan innings"..the ball is staying low right now aswell but he doesnt think that pak can get the LBWs
It's your point of view. My only argument is that Moyo is getting a lot crap here. We just need to be fair. He is not a good captain I will agree hundred times. What I see here is that anythign goes wrong wit hpakistani team it is blamed on moyo while on the other hand it's players fault, dasti;s fault etc when it came to YK. Anyway I said my too bits thats all. I just feel sorry for Moyo.Omar Malik said:Fair thing but how is it justified to actually accuse the guy who lead the side to a WC win even though its a T20 WC still it is a WC win and then a few months down the line he's asked to come to a meeting and explain as to what happened when they lost in the CT. Is this a way to treat someone who just lead the national team to a WC victory a few months before the team lost?! Any sensible person would not want to stay incharge if such allegations are thrown at you!
That is my point blame it on PCB. But YK is no saint, like it or not. But please spare Moyo We are not fair and balanced here. PCB should have made Afridi the captainsaeed-sohail said:Insanyat bhai if you are managing(or running) a company you need people who are working under you right behind you.If that is not the case you get rid of em or leave yourself. YK wanted to get rid of this talentless bunch but he couldn't so he had no option but go.Blame lies with PCB for not backing man in charge.
