Pak have been set 251 runs to win the 5th & final ODI.

Personally, I hope all those players that I have in my Fantasy team do well
 
On form Pakistan should get nowhere near this target but we always live in hope.
 
Only 9 pages in the Aussie innings thread. Disgraceful turnout by PPers....
 
Afridi opening and staying for ten overs is the only realistic hope. I have a feeling it will happen today, Inshallah.

Can you blame us. I've been there throughout for at least 3 ODI's. To tell you the truth its been boring.

Given the "importance" of this game - expect Afridi to score the fastest 100 ever and Misbah to play an innings composed entirely of reverse sweeps.
 
First time in years, I dont feel like wanting Pak to win the match..:(
Im just too disappointed not to see Fawad in the playing XI today..dunno if Im overreacting..

I can't blame you. Only reason I've been posting is because it's raining outside and I'm bored.

Again can you blame them. The Pakistan team has been very poor. I was thinking of selling my 20/20 world cup/warm up tickets. Just hope a couple of ICL players are bought back. Gone are the days when Pakistan cricket used to be exciting.

You are.

I've watched the 4 ODI's and I'd realised that I wasted 8 hours each day of my life. Today I just watched the end of the innings after I decided to go play cricket. It was much good.

You can't put a certain player ahead of the team. I know it's very disheartening not to see Alam get a game but I'm still rooting for the guys in the team to do well and lead us to a victory.

I'm just too disappointed and fed up of the "seniority tag"! :pissed: Our batting has fallen apart in all of the matches...We've lost 3 matches in a row..We know where the problem lies..our "senior" batsmen have this laidback attitude.. and yet we've maintained the same batting line up in all the matches..just coz "we can't drop senior players"!
 
Well Pakistan innings should be starting in a couple of minutes. Looking forward to Shazad and see what the approach of the rest of the batsmen is.

Butt and Shazad are in the middle.

hm..but it's not only about Alam.. That's only 'one' of the reasons..
 
GONE GONE GONE!!!

My wife and kids are gone outside to get away from a grumpy dad/husband!
 
Who is this chubby lad about to open the bowling - and nearly get Shehzad out 1st ball?
 
Salman Butt Does It Again!!!

Another Shocking Run Out

Off A No Ball
 
Good drive from Shazad but straight to the fielder.

No Ball. Butt heard it and wanted to face the ball. Butt is run out.
 
The good thing is that it is Butt who is run out and not the other guy like that other day. Wait a minute, the other day too it was Butt who was runout but for some reason he stayed and poor Shahzad had to depart.
 
I have no sympathy with Butt.

Shehzad shows his 'ruthlessness' - he clearly got Butt back!
 
I'm not turning off...yet. I'm too depressed after football todayto leave the house.

The cricket will take my mind off things

There was an easy single there but Shehzad had other ideas!! :)))
 
Whose fault was this run out though... ?? Dean saying the run was on and it was shezads who turned his back on butt,

The King of innovation! How will he go this time?

Shehzad's, It was Butt's call but he turned his back on Butt as if to say "It's your turn,senior".

We'll never know if it was on - because Shezad didnt respond to the call.

Shehzad MIGHT have struggled.

Personally - I dont think there was a run.
 
Pakistan needs a good innings from Younus. He isn't moving around too much which is a good sign.
 
I'm surprised 'senior' Butt didnt stop - and point Shazad towards the pavillion...
 
There wasn't a run as Shehzad did put his hand up but Butt kept on running looking at the fielder rather than loo at his partner! Complete shambles!

YK nearly playing out a Hilfenhaus maiden!

Can you blame him. He always comes to bat early. He has to get in now and play a good innings.
 
Commentator: "I dont know if they speak different languages.." :))) :))

quite right. Now that would have been a fascinating sight!

I dont think he would have struggled...He could have easily covered the stumps..coming in between the ball and stumps..
