Pakistan A to resume the day 230/4 with 22 overs still remaining before a forced declaration.
 
Good to see both openers perform well, however with Pakistan A only getting 1 innings, it will make it difficult to choose who to partner with Manzoor. :bhanja the only one to not do well.
 
Mohammad Rizwan is playing well, it is just a matter of time he will find his way in the playing eleven for the national team of pakistan
 
Picking as Captain seems a mistake from his poor decision making
As a batsman he seems to have the talent.

Yes , he deserves to be in the A team. and probably also deserves to be in the 15-16 member squad,

But certainly not good enough to bypass everyone like Umar Akmal, Asad, Haris, Fawad, Sohaib Maqsood etc to get into the 12 man squad.
 
U Amin might have got a peach of a delivery you never know. Cant really point fingers at him as no one has seen the dismissal

What about the other innings we have seen?

Amin will play ahead of Maqsood, despite Maqsood probably being the better option.

The 50odd , the 30 odd vs Zimbabwe . 20 odd aginst Indian in CT all looked decent . Needs more chances. Yup Sohaib should be in the team too.
 
Since :shafiq has scored 42 in tis game a 50+ in the game in Lahore so need to debate about :amin or Maqsood :shafiq should continue at no.6 case closed :p

You're being forced to play Amin every game now because he's captain, what if he never proves himself? He doesn't seem to me like a batsmen who can score big, not yet anyway.
 
I have fairly low hopes of Umer Amin: Pakistani selectors and their tendency to go with what is popular vs. what is sane.
 
Sohaib Maqsood and Sharjeel are the best 2 batsmen in Pakistan now. They have the same talent and agression as Inzi and Sehwag.
 
South Africans are 27/0 (9 overs)

Du Plesis on 7 from 28 balls
JP Duminy on 18 from 26 balls

Aizaz Cheema 1 Over, 0 Maidens, 3 Runs, 0 Wickets
Imran Khan 4 Overs,0 Maidens,12 Runs,0 Wickets
 
I wonder why Smith hasn't come out to bat, he's the guy who needs match practice the most...bizarre

S.A 7 man batting line up will be a formidable outfit to get through during the series, i hope our bowlers can find a way of taking 20 S.A wickets relatively cheaply.

Hope is the first step to dissapointment my friend!
 
Interesting to see Smith not coming out to bat today. Even though he has been out of touch for so long and failed in the first innings as well.

When we beat England we beat them on the strength of our bowling as even in that series our batting was exposed at times. I can see S.A exposing our batting as well which means we need a miracle performance from our bowlers again! Indeed we need some hope!
 
South Africans are 53/1 (17 overs)

Du Plesis on 24 from 58 balls
R Peterson on 4 from 9 balls

Aizaz Cheema 4 Over, 0 Maidens, 12 Runs, 0 Wickets
Yasir Shah 2 Overs,1 Maidens,5 Runs,0 Wickets
 
The way Maqsood and Rizwan played this is called POSITIVE cricket. Just look at the strike rate... They attacked SA bowlers...In today's cricket regardless of format this is the way to go... Maqsood should be replaced in Pak team if Asad doesn't perform not Umin.
 
I think South Africa will declare soon unless Pak get them all out. (De Villiers, Kallis and Smith aren't playing 2nd innings)... I think it wouldn't be a bad result if this game is ended in a draw but if we can push and win this, it would be pleasing...
 
Good to see Usman Qadir finally taking a wicket.

South Africans now 95/3 from 29.2 overs
 
cricinfo says stumps, match drawn I dont see how even before the end of day the match is drawn. Is it bad light or something ?
 
Why didn't South Africa give some of their main guys a go in the second innings? Amla and Smith need more game time than Peterson and the other bowlers who batted.
 
According to PCB official facebook page, three more players have been included in Test Squad
1 Ahmad Shahzad
2. Shan Masood
3. Asad Shafiq
 
Maybe everyone got fed up of playing on a road wicket and called it a day!
 
It's disgraceful than in the modern age we can't get ant news of what's happening. If this was India A playing with South Africa we would be getting constant updates
 
Stumps were called at Tea Time - both teams had enough practice

This would be so predictable. Since its only two games, I think we should just stick with two openers. Manzoor is already in the squad so only one of Masood or Shahzad should be added.
