Toss in about 20 mins.
rested because they need a pacer like lakmal in death overs. But its a big gamble a players Mendis can change game before death overs i guess Lanka think tank trying to too think too deep.
Considering how horrible we are against spinners especially against leggies and how horrible we are against game changers or non game changers.
Has a pretty decent record against us. 7 matches 11 wickets at 24 avg. not bad at all.
6 bowler strategy. how hard is it to drop a pacer for a batsmen.
dude we were never going to try a part timer with 6 options. Unless 4 of the 6 are getting smashed. TBH i am happy. With the two leggies. mendis and de silva we could have been in trouble big time. now we only have to worry bt the one.and our leggie is not going to bowl today i guess or maybe only a couple of overs otherwise i see no reason of dropping Sohaib and and going to with 6 bowlers.
6th bowler is there to provide a cover for Afridi who is not 100% fit and this batting first decision is based on Afridi fitness too. Misbah want to utilize Afridi batting first without making him tired in field otherwise there is a doubt of dew too (although i didn't notice much dew in last couple of matches on this ground)
