I had a rant on umpiring yesterday I really cannot be asked today, this is absolutely pathetic, this decision could well change the match now, I hope it doesn't because these 2 were looking solid and could have got his century too as well as get that 200 run partnership you never know both Misbah and Younis could have taken us to end of play with just losing 1 wicket.
These decisions by umpires man what the hell are they playing at.
With so much unfair decisions by these blind as bat umpires, this better get followed up after the series, umpires should be punished and questioned, this is just completely wrong, what the hell do they think they are playing at, this is a cricket match and if they cannot umpire fairly then go back to country cricket, that is so unfair!!!
Due to the pace Pakistan are playing at, these 70 runs are quite far off and they'll face quite a few balls to get into a lead. I think Misbah becomes the real key. If NZ get rid of him within the first 1/2 hour or 40 mins after tea then they have a chance to run through the lower order.
Still, wicket is dead so hopefully Shafiq and the captain can repeat what they did at Hamilton.
This is why it sucks not having a cricket board with any power or say with the ICC. Imagine if the umpires made these sort of errors regularly against India. They would end the umpire's career, or threaten to boycott the tour.
I wanted a minimum of 150 partnership btwn Younis and Misbah they got 142 after the umpire decided to step but a great partnership.
I predicted 2 centuries from our top 6 batsman, again Younis was well set and so is Misbah so Misbah has to now punish the Kiwi's and I mean punish them, no sportsmanship at all from them at all. Come on Misbah up your gear and make your century.
Asad Shafiq should make atleast a 50 and then Akmal and the tail could contribute another 100 runs or so.
I'm still sticking to my prediction make a minimum of atleast 430, anything above that would be great 500+ is still a big possibility too, we have a good tail who can all contribute and make 30s and 40s.
