It should be a good hit out for our boys, hopefully we'll get some confidence going in to the 1st test match.

Post all match comments/updates in this thread please.

Btw, any links to watch or listen to the match? LEGAL ones. Thanks. :)
 
i'm keen on seeing sami bowl - wonder if he learned anything while sitting out the past few months.

I can say to you now, no one is covering the match on tv.

BBC might provide an audio link zo as they have done for zi Sri Lanka warm games.
 
BBC? Can you give me a direct audio link?

Good stuff. All 3 openers getting a game, and Inzi and Asif rested to give other bowlers a chance.
 
r u sure Inzi is rested?

hasn't he had enough rest back in Pakistan? something fishy's going on....its not his back again is it???

YALLAH KHAIR!!!!!!!!

YALLAH KHAIR!!!!!!!!

I think he's just being rested along with Asif.
 
Inzi, moyo and asif are been rested.

These games are basically are for fringe players to claim a place in side.

2 from 3 openers.

afridi or faisal iqbal

also s nazir/gul/sami fighting for maybe 2 seamer spots.
 
But it doesn't make sense for inzi to be rested, he hasn't played in england 4 years, surley he has 2 get used to the conditions.

Asif ok, played for leicester, but inzi needs to be playing...........

Its a 'warm-up' game - thats what they are for....
 
No Inzi, no Razzak, No Asif!!!!!!!!

Last I heard, we could only have eleven players starting!!!!!!!!!
 
whats with all the whinging? for god sake pakistan has another warm up match yet. The team is trying to work out a few final postions in team.

yet all thread is full of is why no inzi, why no razzaq.

please use some commonsense!

am sure moyo/inzi will play against england "A"
 
i think bw is resting the main guys and playing the ppl who are either fighting for spots or have little experience playing in england.
 
I think its a good side to field, by doing this we'll know what the best XI will be.
 
sami smacked for a 4 of the first ball...


somethings never change ....
 
sami off to his usual good start.

4 off the 1st ball!

And No Mohammad Yousuf as well !!!

well only 11 players can play, has it occured that maybe fringe players are been looked at so final postions can be filled? :13: :9:
 
is this match being televised ?

I really hope i've spokewn a bit too soon when i say:-

I thort warm up games were for our best players 2 get used to the conditions. we only have one more 4 day game after this before the 1st test match, surley they just can't rely on that to get in shape and form.....
 
People are getting so worked up over a 4. Call the men in in the white coats please.

On most tours these days there are no warm up games at all. Also inzamam and moyo have played enuf in england before and will be fine if the play v eng "A"
 
the audio nw loads up, says its streaming but no ones speaking!!!

Why do u want to call the umpires? :)) :))
 
Darren robinson is a seasoned pro county player and i guess facing sami is no better than facing most county bowlers.

ok if u say so aj.....

pakistan have a few spots that are up for debate and this is why this X1 has been picked.
 
BBC radio thing not working. Is it working for anyone?
 
outttttttttttt!!!!!
sami gets boyce caught YK!!!
 
Yesssssssssssssss i did speak a bit too soon :D :D

Its just that its so frustrating to see someone so talented wasting himself away. Ditto imran nazir.
 
Gul strikes, Ackerman out for a duck!

22-2

We're bowling well!
 
Mongia in, btw Iqbal took the catch.
 
HD Ackerman i remember him playing a few tests for S.A v pakistan in the late 1990s.

well done sami and gul thus far...!
 
34-2

Partnership begining to build here.

Leicestershire 47/2
 
Shoaib Malik
Imran Farhat
Salman Butt
Younis Khan,
Faisal Iqbal
Shahid Afridi
Kamran Akmal
Mohammad Sami
Umar Gul
Shahid Nazir
Danish Kaneria

"Pakistanis won the toss and elected to field first"

Leicestershire 53/2 (13.2 ov)

Sami and Gul open the bowling and get a wicket each.
 
Guessing by the team selection it seems that Razzaq will definitely play in the first test with Sami, Gul and Nazir being given the chance to claim the last pace spot.
 
I think it was good to leave out Inzi and give Iqbal some batting time as he may be needed during the tour to strengthen our batting.

Bit disappointed that Razzaq doesn’t have to fight for his spot like the other 3.

Will be interesting to see how well the Malik, Farhat and Butt do, wonder who will be given the task of facing the new ball?
 
Score update: Leicestershire 59/2 (15.1 ov)

Mohammad Sami 6 1 20 1 (1nb)
Umar Gul 7 1 25 1
Shahid Nazir 2 0 5 0

oh oh.. afridi in to bowl :11:

Already! We should have went with 4 seamers and had Afridi and Malik as spin options, it would have been good to give them both extended spells.

I dont think it would have done any harm to leave out Danish Kaneria for this match because he already has a lot of experience in these condtitions, and there is another match against England A anyway.
