Lets hope Pakistans batsmen show up for the 1st time in this series, Have to say our batsmen have been pathetic to say the least in ODIs for a long time now! Time for some of them to prove they can perform at this level.
 
toss is key and Pakistan dont have quality batsmen now to chase targets and says we are missing and amin etal are not ready for this level they are under pressure and have to play for their spots selectors should give them confidence and we rely on toss, Prof. has not done anything as an opener and he is not doing justice and if he is in the team then he should bat at no. 7 and the golden statement that he is minnow basher as he average 40+ against minnows spot on Waqar
 
My XI for this game

Shehzad Nasir Asad Misbah Akmal Maqsood Hafeez Afridi Ajmal Irfan Junaid
 
Irfan talking here saying bowling to lefties is easy for him
 
Waqar : either dont play Hafeez at all or play him at No.7
 
My 11:

Shehzad
Afridi
Amin
Shafiq
Akmal (wk)
Misbah
Maqsood
Hafeez
Ajmal
Junaid
Irfan
 
Kepler on pitch says toss is crucial as pitch is dry assitance for spin
 
De Kock to score huge today ..he is 20 and will oneday be a monster . He will be South Africas version of Shewag just better and its Exactly what our odi team needs
 
Waqar : either dont play Hafeez at all or play him at No.7

yes a gem from Waqar :sachin's massacre against australia being shown on TEn what an innings and sachin walked on the appeal although the umpire didn't gave out :bow: a true legend he is

When was the last time Misbah won the toss

I think he should practise on his tossing skills more often than his Tuk Tuk skills
 
Can someone calculate the probability of losing that many tosses provided with the recent sample. Seems like misbah is all the way down in improbability zone.

Or may be some one can check the coin, it may have two same sides.
 
Misbah his luck is very bad losses most of the toss should visit a fortune teller
 
Poor team selection again, going in with 6 bowlers when batting has been the main problem. Should have dropped Tanvir and picked a batsman in his place or even a legit wicket keeper.

U right bro it's just crazy
 
These were the changes most of the posters here wanted.

... I see complaints already. :O
 
:sethi is also in Abu Dhabi so the boys might try hard today i'd say for SA ODI's please select a right arm fast bowler like :talha alot of lefties there already because in SA its early summer and the pitches will not aid spin
 
Good squad. Can't really complain much. This is going to be a big total to chase though and I don't see how we do it.
 
This will be a true test for Maqsood, even though our batting has been terrible, it has been extremely difficult to bat second. Maqsood will practically open as I predict Hafeez getting out to Steyn within first 3 overs so let us see him prove his mettle.
 
If Maqsood doesn't perform today I hope people don't jump on him and call him a failure. It's his first ODI.
 
On 7 out of 15 occasions, PAK have won the match in Abu Dhabi after losing the toss
 
We lost the toss again which means that there is a 95% chance we will lose the match.(Hope I'm wrong though)
 
If SA get anything in excess of 230, it'll be tough for Pak to chase that down.

Let's see how Ajmal and co. go about today
 
Irfan will look to get Amla out as soon as possible. Once he settles, it'll be difficult to dislodge him.
 
Sarfraz should have replaced akmal. Asad needs to bat at 3.

Pitch will be slow so 240 is a match winning score but if the opposition is Pak then 220 will do

Wow new kid is already better then Shehwag. must have started watching cricket recently.
Lets wait & see
 
Misbah loses the toss

Does not matter how the pitch plays make Pakistan chase because chasing is their kryptonite

Anyways, Pakistan have only 5 specialist batsman :facepalm:
 
Thank god Maqsood and Junaid are playing!!! The only change that I wanted but did not occur was Tanvir out and Jamshed or Rehman in.....
