Pakistan on top with a lead of 39 and still more batting to come!
Predicted Lead for me is 160

I think Pakistan will manage a minimum lead of 130, could also go upto 200 if someone (Gul or Wahab) plays a blinder

Conditions are easy, bowling is non threatening and all tail enders are useful with the bat
 
i just cant believe adnan akmal is on 40


i will be accepting a humble pie, for stuff i said before about his batting!
 
Darmiyana & Mani need to continue batting with responsibility after lunch...Adi to attack, Rehman to be the wall n hit occasional 6 or 4...

these two need to score as much as possible...a lot of time is left, no rush needed...

a lead of 150 would be great!
 
We need to get at least 100 runs lead

one thing is for sure Adnan Akmal>>>>>>>>>Rehman>>fawad alam
 
Adnan needs to play a big knock here, a 100 would be quite pleasing. If we get to 200 lead, we cannot lose the game.
 
Asad unlucky to get out would have loved to see his maiden ton.

However extremely pleased with Adnan Akmal isn't most talented but he isnt just Blocking every shot and then getting out. He has got a good 40 runs so far.

Pak should defo look at 100 runs lead at least.

I'm as optimistic as anyone but a 200 run lead is a bit of a reach. I'm expecting a 100 run lead at the most.
 
We need to get lead up to 100-20 here atleast! good stuff by Adnan and rehman! shabash!

I agree, I don't think we'll get their unless Adnan plays for a big hundred + solid contributions from Wahab and Gul, all of which is very unlikely.

IF we get there though.. I can see us drawing at the very least, and winning at the very best.
 
Akmals all play the same way... same shots.. thats amazing, i think we have found a solution..


Adnan Akmal >Test
Kamran Akmal > ODI
UMAR Akmal > T20


what you think guys
 
Great stuff from pakistan. I think it's a bad thing but these day's i'm feeling much more confident of our number 6 onwards compared to openers + top order. :S

what you think guys

Umar Akmal HAS to play ODIs. But otherwise yes agree.
 
Just waiting for the day where all three of them play :D
That test will be legendary
 
lol jeremy coney 'the mother must have been good at keeping as well'
 
O yea please could anyone find that last boundry Asad Shafiq hit i am sure i seen the ball had a tear on the side
 
Umar Akmal HAS to play ODIs. But otherwise yes agree.

Kamran and Umar have shown that they are LOI cricket player but

Adnan looking at his strike rate in Test could make a useful WK in ODI may be he is slow for T20.

But then we will have same issues as with Fawad of not being able to hit Six's of everyball. Because that is what a number 7 has to do with in PAK matches i suppose.

But all three in ODI will be great to see tbh.

1.:kami 4. :umarakmal 7.:adnan
 
Adnan trying to prove to the selectors why he should've been in the 30 man WC squad.
 
the most impressive with middle akmal is that he doesnt slog unlike his brothers. he tries to play proper shots most of the times.
 
Adnan Akmal has been impressive. I think he is under rated and he is more than what his averages say.
 
If only Akmal's parents thought of a couple more akmals in the brotherhood :p.
 
two quick wickets and it will be over very quickly. Lets hope it doesnt happen. I will be very happy if we get a lead of 100. Should at least play the full second session.

Wahab, Gul, Tanvir?? IMO on this pitch all can make 30s if not 50s.
 
big flashing drive from Adi.

be careful there, lad.
 
Adnan giving some intent here. Think there's been a message from the 'thinkk tank'
 
and the next ball keeps low.

pitch playing tricks? :gul
 
'Runs are pressure.'

wow, what a comment.

we have a deep thinker in the comm. box ladies and gents.
 
'Best way to reduce lead is to bowl Pakistan out'
Good job commentator, would've never thought of that :14:
 
I think Akmal score shouldn't made out as big thing its flat pitch tbh.
