Lets hope he does. I will be backing him I hope he does but I have my reservations.
 
I think Afridi, Butt, Ajmal, Akmals and Aamer maybe (Akhtar) will be the key players today.
 
OMG I'm excited.

Well I guess Nervous.

Or is it nervously excited?

Or even excitedly nervous?

Heck let it start. :afridi

We already won yesterday guise, no need to be as nervous :afridi

Watching at home today, was at the ground yesterday. At least I won't be nervous with 13,000. :))

I reallly want Akhtar to get some wickets early on today and I think he will bowl a lot better than yesterday. Maybe then the managment will cancel the fine.

:)) its not World cup mate!

World cup or no World cup, im always wanting Pakistan to win like any other hardcore Pakistani supporter.
 
Bat first and put up 170 again, the effect of having Umar Gul in your side pretty much makes a total like 30+ runs for the opposition since it's so hard to put away this guy. If we put up 170 it's pretty much like chasing 200 for the opposition (hope you get what I mean :yk)
 
Hope we lose the toss and have to chase, would be interesting to see the mindset of the batsmen, and the approach of the captain/coach.

Pakistan have been superb so far on tour, keep this momentum!
 
Whenever Pakistan are 1-0 up in the series and there's only 1 more game left to finish it off they always seem to fail that!

Let's hope it won't happend this time,

I wonder if Shoaib Akhtar will start, although it's likely it'll happend.
 
pakistan and australia are starting to produce real thrillers! a real clash of the Titans this is!

This is T20, doesn't really matter if we win or lose in the wider perspective of the tour of England, should be good to see if Pakistan will be able to cope under the pressure of chasing under a new captain/management.

I agree. If there is some cloud cover and we win the toss, bowl first. The Aussies were bowled out so it makes sense to give the ball back to the bowlers.

Chasing a score will give the team much confidence in the batting depatment.

No matter what.........Pak will win

It will be a lot harder, though we are expecting mprovements in the batting.

Shoaib Akhtar will bounce back, i know it!
 
Toss meant to have happened now, any news?
 
Afridi wins toss and bats. Cloudy conditions.

Afridi said he wasn't really confident but he meant the team won't be taking things lightly after winning yesterday, good to hear.
 
Pak win toss and bat first, Pak are unchanged, Aus rest Watson and Steve Smith
 
Good stuff Afridi, sticking to the plan as always. Bowling 2nd is our strength.
 
We need Shazaib to fire for us today, quick fire 50 from him, and Aus will melt under pressure

Watson dropped. :)))

Steve O'Keefe in for Smith. Target man surely.

Do you know how he plays, he is debuting.
 
O'Keefe is another retarded spinner from Australia. Will get battered, I hope.

In answer to Oxy ... he does neither. :Sami
 
Ali Muzaffar said:
who is in for Watson??

James hope and Steve o'Keefe for Watson and Steven Smith, Clarke to open the batting
 
Watson dropped - usually plays well v Pakistan in T20 - interesting decision.

Shoaib Akhtar's speed was very good last night, just need's to concentrate on his line and length, also the 'special' thing he had in his run seems to have gone.

C'mon Pakistan!!

This could well be him in T20, nothing else seems to work for him.
 
Watto cry baby dropped LOL
its our tradition to destroy some careers!
 
Smith dropped .. bad news for Pakistan.

Watson must be inured.

Expecting something good from Salman today ... he usually ups his game after an embarrassing match.
 
Watson has not been 'dropped' lol.

This might be his last match in T20, he not performed well in this format.
 
I think Pakistan stood a better chance bowling first. Apart from it being overcast I do think Australia prefer to bowl first as their batting is capable of chasing anything.
 
Afridi, Shahzaib and Butt need to make amends. Akmal bros are shazade batsmen aaginst the Aussies!

Apparently them two have been rested :)))
 
It has been a long time since razzaq reminded us how terrific he really is with the bat, do your country a favour today the old campaigner!
 
We should get 170 minimum on this pitch. We can't afford to be 40/4 again though. Aus will be tougher today I feel so 180 would be a good score for us.
