Afridi is supersub
that's freaking stupid.:12: making him supersub. that should've made sehwag a supersub. they definitley gonna miss Afridi's bowling which is pretty good against Australia.
 
at least we'll definitely see Afridi bat then and if Vettori/Murali has a nightmare with the ball then you never know they might not even complete their quota

if they're missing his bowling, they could sub him for sehwag.
 
akthar to open proceedings off what looks like a shorter run up.
 
akthar drifts into pads... leg bye off 1st ball
 
cameron white the debutant is super sub from the australian side.. its weird they made him super sub.. so that means he can only either bat or bowl and not do both.. right???
 
akthar seems to have got good line & length straight away.. up to 149.5 kmph
 
Pitch seems pretty slow as predicted. akthar getting drift back into
left handed katich.

148-149 kmph mark. beats katich with last ball of the over.

Aus 1/0 (1)
 
gilchrist smashes two 4s off trundler pollocks 1st over...

Aus 9/0
 
katich picks up single off akthars 1st ball of 2nd over..
 
The ICC 11 shirt. Should it not have been a shirt with colours from the representing countries?
 
gilchrist smashes akthar thru covers for 4.. top shot that..thunderous cover drive!

no ball aswell... 15/0

Think of the TV screens!

It'd look nice for two overs, then you'd be fiddling with your TV/laptop set video settings to ease the pain on your eyes.
 
Akthar bowling with good pace on what is a placid surface.
 
akthar hammers a bouncer into katichs head!

:14: :14:
 
pollock is getting ball to seam around here.. although at his pace hes got get line right.
 
just single from pollocks over. Aus 17/0 (4)
 
akthar beats gilchrist as he plays a ugly slog across line.
 
punched drive thru covers for 2 by gilly.. 19/0
 
They spoiled the fun by substituting Afridi. Just Shoaib is in world XI from Pakistan. Bit surprising. Because we have not used him in Pakistan side for a while.
 
Shot! Short arm pull from Gilchrist to spoil a good over from Shoaib.
 
Gilchrist smashes akthars last ball of the over for 4 over midwicket.
pitch is very slow..!

Aus 23/0 (5)
 
Midwicket is not a good place for a world class bowler to get hit. Was it a bad delivery?
 
4.6 Shoaib Akhtar to Gilchrist, FOUR, fraction short and on the middle
and leg stump line, would have been a good delivery to any other
batsmen but not this man, Gilchrist leans back and handsomely
pulls it away to the square leg fence, again one bounce and over
the ropes

not really. gilchrist just pounced on ball pretty quickly. also balls not coming on that quickly.

gilchrist smashes pollock in same direction aswell.
 
flintoff on now bowling round wicket and makes gilly play and miss.
 
Flintoff makes gilly play and miss agen.. big cow lash type shot attempted there!
 
Flintoff around the 143kmph mark to start with.

Aus 36/0 (8)
