England go into tea on 190-4 after 55 overs
Kaneria needs to settle down and try to bowl an over or two at the same batsman. For that, Butt's gonna have to stick his neck out, back his bowler, and bring in some of the fielders - do something differently, make Morgan do something that doesn't come naturally to him. If that means putting a silly mid-off in, so be it. If it means pushing the mid on some ten paces back to entice a big hit, go for it.
But Kaneria needs to get some rhythm and he isn't going to achieve that if he keeps getting milked.
Come on Pak.
Collingwood's great value to England (apart from the inspirational fielding and occasional wicket) is his propensity to get runs when his more illustrious colleagues fail.
Man, us Pakistani fans really don't have any patience and then we expect our players to do that. What an irony.
Actually, we blame our players for not having a test mentality. Truth is, we ourselves lack it as a nation. We want quick results and naturally, so does our team. They are from amongst us as well, after all.
I'm not arguing, I'd like to know how many kiddies there are here? (Know that sounds creepy, but you understand)
