All the best to both teams,as usual being neutral for a neutral match :),though i like to see some of the people-trott,gul and hafeez play well.Hafeez has been good so far,but his real test comes here,also waiting to see whether tremlett and anderson come good in flat tracks.
 
Off course we will bowl first.

Off course we will spin them out for 297.

Off course we will tuk tuk to 396.

Off course we will doosra/teesra them on 4th day for 297.

Off course we will chase it down and win by late sat afternoon.
 
I hope Pakistan play :rehman , he adds control to the bowling as well as can add few runs down the order.

I also want :adnan to do well.
 
I think England would be missing a trick by not playing Monty, he would have been effective.

Ofcourse :misbah
 
Who else here thinks Ajmal and Swann will fail miserably here.

YK will have a below par series.

Anderson and Gul will shine.

Hafeez will score runs.

Shafiq will come off age.

KP will fail.
 
If Pak bowls I think the Key will the taking the few chances we always get in the beginning...if we drop those chances then it will be really difficult to stop England.
 
And i don't think swan and ajmal will fail but they will not dominate the test thats for sure, neither one. And if Rahman plays as well then he will have a better test then ajmal
 
Pakistan should play :rehman , he is quite underrated. Pakistan should play to there strength.
 
Trust me when I say we.England fans are looking forward to this more than you lot perhaps. We've been starved of Test Cricket for soooo long

so much similarity between england and india, one team is waiting for test cricket and the other for ipl.. lol
 
I cannot wait for the first ball .......... I hope the pitch has something for the bowlers, a result oriented pitch.
 
A spinning minefield.... ball turning from Lunch First day..... England Night mare !!! :D
 
misbah is going to bowl in this match i think
Umar akmal should get place in XI
 
Ian Botham (Beefy) & David Lloyd (Bumble)'s predictions for the first day

Can't wait for the match to start... but I can't watch it :( will see Cricinfo ball-by-ball commentary.
 
Pakistan need to play out Anderson well with the new ball, that is the strength of English attack.
 
Pakistan need to send a nightwatchmen to play out Anderson with the new ball.. :p
 
I think If its a flat pitch Pakistan should bowl first ..... make use of the freshness. If the pitch is good for spinners, then Bat first.
 
:asad should be ready for a barrage of short balls, I hope he has worked it out with Mohsin in the nets, it will not be good to see him wanting in the Match.
 
Been a while since i have looked for to a Pakistani test match with this intensity!!!!!
 
Go Pakistan! May your tuk tuk be large!!

I do find it a bit hard to get into World XI series, because of the representing your country thing. ;)

Neverthless hope it is a good series with much tuk tukking....:zaka
