Pakistan have set NZ a target of 178. Slightly above par score for Pallekale.
8.90 run rate req, hafeez to open. Need to keep an eye on d/l
Michael Atherton saying on Sky Sports :

Getting 177 with Pakistan spinners , I'd fancy Pakistan captain's chances.
Here is a stat which will boost the morale! Pakistan have lost only once when they posted more than 150 batting first in t20s. I think Arafat and Tanvir should not leak runs. They are the weak links.
Why are we opening with Kane and Rob Nicol won't last long vs these spinners.
This Nicol lads got a very iffy technique against spinners. Keeps playing down and across his front pad. Very dangerous.
Sense a bowling change coming up. Tanvir undoing all of hafeezs good work
Tanvir and Sami would make sure that Pakistan is kicked out of this world cup.
Urgh crap by Tanvir after such a good first over.
NZ batsman need to go after the Trundlers to take the pressure off when spin is on.
He had a chat with WAZ before the start of the game, what he should be doing with a new ball doesn't seem if he actually learnt anything from the comments.
Gul's avg is 16.99!! What an ordinary player!!

oh wait thats bowling AVG :afridi
How many matches do we need to have him play before the selectors are convinced that tanvir is nowhere near world class? Theres little that can be done with this squad, but the selectors need to be held responsible for this.
