First ball 44444444 by Butt!


Good start. Lets see how thins go today!
 
Good news for Pakistan: Zaheer Khan is still struggling with the injury he suffered yesterday. But then again most of the bowling will be done by spinners I feel.
 
Today is the day when we have to show some fight.

We didn't have many options in the first two days with half-fit bowling attack against a very good batting lineup on a batting paradise. But now Pakistan have to show the fighting spirit.

Let's see how we do it.
 
Good start ,Hoping that pakistani players will play +tive cricket and make the best of the situation and end up batting for long times and score some runs to their name.

that is not so good since Zaheer will be harmless and this would bring their spinners into play.
 
They're obvious plan is to just block out everything and hope nothing goes wrong.

Yes....dusty wicket - tailor made for Kumble.
 
This is a great opportunity for batsmen to fill their boots and put up some big scores without worrying about being labeled as selfish players cause it is needed by their team that they put premium on their wickets.

If that is pakistans plan ,then look for an inning defeat.Pakistani batsmen needs to play their regular natural game instead.

Totally agree. Today the wicket will be playing better than tomorrow...so Pak will not only have to save wickets but also score at a decent rate.
 
They gotta move the score along. They're only building pressure up this way. But Bhajji is bowling well...
 
nice 44444 by Younis to mid wicket!

If Sami can block 40 overs, so can they.

I'm not saying block the whole day.

But they MUST block atleast the first session.

Surviving 5 sessions is crucial.

Runs: 2,527

Speaking of free time! :p
 
Excellent cover drive by Butt to Zaheer for 2 runs.

Next ball........4 of his legs!
 
Butt is like the only kid who has ACTUALLY improved his cricket.
 
I think YK wanted a 3rd run. No run out please. Do a hitwicket for a change instead
 
butt gone.....caught in the slips off Harby!
 
These two have to get to the end of the day. No matter what.
 
that was very poor shot. just like in the 2nd inning of 1st test, he once again throws away his wicket.
 
Yea it reminded me a lot of the way he ended his 67. He's gotta get onto his starts.
 
Puffs of dust from the batting crease.....as Yousaf played a defensive stroke.
 
I think, Butt shoudln't be given anymore chance.

Cause if you can't play on this pitch, then you can not play any other pitch
 
Damn, yesterday same pitch was looking like batting paradise
now today same pitch looking like bowling paradise
 
Defensive strokes.. that is ALL that is required till lunch.
 
Yousaf HAS to score a big one here!

Lol it's our bastmen, they make everything look impossible.
 
Yousaf seems to be in big hurry.
Plays a rash stroke to Zaheer. Edge drops just short of Dhoni.
 
if Pak wanna daraw this both Ys have to score double or else we'll lose this match by tomorrow.

why is always our players lose concentration :)

look how whole indian teams played
 
harbhajan looking threatening
 
i was hoping 100 from Butt today
but I am very upset that he didnt even make 50
 
Yousuf definitely in a hurry. He's going for the win.

Edit - GONE!
 
"Century for Laxman, for ganguly,... centuries for Tanvir and Danish"

:))) :)))
 
I wanna see both these two get AT LEAST 100 each. Anything less will not do unless Faisal is a godsend.
 
Great turn by singh, right through yousuf
 
And Yousuf fails again. So much for the strongest middle order ever. Game over. Seriously.
 
What the **** is he doing?

These two are supposed to stay there till today.

Game Over.
 
Faisal being kept back

First ball to Misbah - destroyed him
 
chalo ji. good luck. Pak will not even make 150. game will be won today by India.
 
Harbhajan's tearing it
