The cloud will burn away within an hour and it will be a batting paradise.
 
If Pakistans batting fails not even their bowling will be able to save them.
 
WI have fallen for the trap. They have seen cloud and thought bowl bowl bowl.

This is a MISTAKE. The cloud will begone in an hour.
 
Dwayne Bravo has won the toss and West Indies are bowling.

Ok we need to bat carefully...
 
Will be a great sight to see Irfan against Gayle!
 
Team: Farhat, Jamshed, Hafeez, Shafiq, Misbah, Malik, Akmal, Junaid, Wahab, Irfan, Ajmal
 
Clouds will not go till 2PM the 2nd innings will see a full sun.

Junaid, Irfan and Wahab are the seamers. No Asad Ali. Sammy misses out for WI.

to be honest we just need to see off the new ball, after that its pancake...
 
Lets hope we bat well here and put up a total of 270+ and really put pressure on the W.I today
 
Apart from Charles, WI team looks good on paper.
 
seems like it was a great decision to include Wahab- because Asad Ali may not be effective on this track.
 
The Oval is often a tough ground to chase on due to reverse swing but maybe WI think it won't be such a factor with the two new balls.

Butterflies in the stomach time!!!!
 
Wahab ahead of Asad? Oh well it will strengthen our batting and hopefully he won't leak too many runs.
 
The problem will be to set a target here. Can't afford too much tuk tuk and can't afford a collapse either so the batsmen need to be smart here, see of the new balls and play positively after that.
 
Wahab is in good rhythm. Full of confidence after his brilliant innings and his pacy performance vs SA therefore it was imperative he plays today.

Plus Wahab has done well at the Oval in the past and has some batting talent....good decision IMHO

Agree. Too much tuk tuk is what I think will happen. We're going to be too slow then our batsman will give their wickets away - that's the usual way it goes but Insha'Allah something different today.
 
WI bowling looks very thin. Maybe that's why they chose to chase.
 
Pakistan should had bowl first
anyway Target atleast 260
Come on Pakistan batsman,s

Not sure I completely agree with you.. New rules have meant teams ending up close to 300 even after slow starts... We just need to play sensibly and not take too many risks.. Play according to the situation but ensure we don't give our wickets away.
 
Only Rampual and Roach are the pacers :akhtar

Going with two pacers will hurt the windies, pollard and bravo will be hit all around the park

Narine - now need to be dealt with carefully
 
Pakistan batting is really weak , apart from misbah no reliable batman in the team. Hope we score 250 plus.
 
Oval is almost always flat. Just see off the early spell and target 280+
 
need to start slowly with the cloud cover- and then go all out attack after clouds go away!
 
Anybody noticed 9 out of these 11 players are same who played the last 2 ODI's against South Africa so as always Misbah don't like too many changes. The missing 2 players who are not in this 11 were not selected in the 15 squad otherwise you might have seen the same 11 you know!!!
 
Openers need to start positively and we can score 260+.

Later get Gayle and game is ours!! yeeeeeeeeeeee-haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw! :D
 
Only three specialist bowlers in the team for Windies. Guess they're finally trying to lengthen their batting line up.
 
Just a quick question guys, which channel is showing it in Ontario, Canada?
 
Narine dont have Good record in England
last year he played 2 odi V England in england Taken only 1 wicket
if Weak england player of spin can Play narine well
why not Pakistan

If the forecast is correct thn they are not going anywhere at least till 40h over...
 
West Indies XI: Gayle, Charles, Sarwan, Darren Bravo, Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Pollard, Ramdin, Rampaul, Narine, Roach
 
Sunny said the pitch seems full of runs once the clouds are gone...

So Misbah loses the toss . . . Again.
 
only three specialist bowlers from the Indies is a recipe for disaster, but never forget we can make fourth-class trundlers look like McGrath.
 
Sir Farhat need to play the anchor role here...
 
Samuels, Bravo and Pollard are all regular bowlers and all do a job in their attack, I don't know why people are that surprised - WI often play like this. Gayle might add his offbreaks too, they still have a lot of bowling options.

Captain Bravo is like Hafeez for them can bowl 10 overs..Samuel & Pollard can bowl 5+5 i don't think Gayle will bowl...
 
big moments for the kids walking there With the players.
