This one is unpredictable. Should be another cracking match !
All eyes on Mohammad Hafeez !! Akmals hold the key for the Lions.
 
Thank God It Is ME said:
How come on cricinfo it says 6th March and u r saying 7th?
Because I thought today was the 7th! :)) Obviously need to invest in a calendar!
 
Watching the pre-game show on Geo.

Shoaib Mohammad is very weirdly attired! Is it fancy dress day? Positively bizarre!!
 
Toss happening now.

Misbah called heads, lost the toss.

Salman decides to bowl first.
 
Salman: will look to restrict them to 150. No changes to team.

Misbah: we would have batted anyway if we won the toss. Chasing creates a lot of pressure (he should know!!). Wicket looks good to bat on, spinners shouldn't be in play as much as previous games, we will need 160+.
 
Aamir Sohail is developing into a seriously impressive pundit (by Pakistani standards, at least).

Shame that the other two with him are such wash-outs.
 
Why can't people around these commentators tell them that they suck soooo bad.

Good mornin' people.
 
Aamer Sohail on Geo:

Silly move by Razzaq to throw a strop over captaincy. Other players being silly too if they didn't sign-up for their preferred Association.

Great decision by Lahore to make Salman Butt the captain - gives him good experience and exposure.
 
My Shers are gonna massacre the Wolves...go Lions!!!!!!
 
Why has the stream not started. The match has already begun.
 
Cheema bowled well in his first over
 
HALWA bowling by the Lahore opening attack. Making Hafeez look like Sehwag!

Wahab Riaz on now to bring in some control.
 
Very defensive captaincy from Salman Butt from the get-go; poor field placings.
 
54/0 after 6.1 overs
They should score about 170 from this position with all 10 wickets in hand.
 
Very lacklustre by Lahore Lions so far.

The Faisalabadis are 76/0 in 8 overs!!!
 
team huddle out in the middle. great captaincy by butt. reminding the players its a semi final.
 
Channel isn't working, seems as though Lions are roaring their way out of this tournament though. :p
 
Some real crappy bowling on display here. Salman Butt kaafi pareshaan nazar aa rahe hain :butt

hafeez again
what a player
Yaar this is halwa bowling from some village bowlers, led by a tactically inept Butt.

We saw what a player Hafeez was against Akhtar yesterday ;-)
 
Kamran does more calling/girly screams while keeping than when he is batting.

6 by Asif..93/0 in 9.2
 
I saw Akhtar yesterday when he came over for the presentation chat and definitely looked improved than what we've mostly seen him like

Looked fitter than before, even looked a bit younger than his age!

Then they showed the wicket he took and what a cracking delivery it was!

Pacey and swinging in and knocking middle stump out I think it was middle stump! :D
 
Congratz to hafeez for earning a place in the squad for world t20..
:pissed: :(
 
Looks like the Wolves spent most of yesterday watching how the other Lahore side was killed by Karachi.

Wolves are feasting on the Lions. :127: :127:

Tera kya hoga Butt-aah? :butt
:)))

That's what happens when you have an ultra-defensive captain.
 
Fielding is so pathetic that the motoo guy is hitting it straight to fielders and jogging to other side. Arrgh

Butt will make up for it in his batting..he'll coming out firing all cylinders and score a quickfire 20 off 40 balls :butt
 
200 is definately a minimum target atm, still :misbah and :ajmal to come! :))

dil scoop and :four
hafeez
Eh?? It wasn't a scoop at all!

From Cricinfo:

10.3 Waqas Ahmed to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, Great shot! fuller in length, bit slower in pace, just outside off, Hafeez gets across and chips it over short fine leg fielder for four

He's being made to look like the Pakistani Sehwag. Gotta say though, he's got power!
 
Salman Butt is a bully in Pak domestics so don't be surprised if he out does Hafeez here. :p
 
Asif Hussain gone. 100 runs too late to get a wicket I would say.
