Although, it was Sri Lankan day yesterday because of late wickets. I think, if we manage to score 350 we can have a good chance of securing the 1st innings lead.

I hope we have a good day.

:yk :inti
 
If Younis has any sense he'll open the bowling with Kaneria so he can bring up his century early and get round to taking wickets as soon as possible

It might be averted :))

QOTW.

And then in second innings we probably should open with Malik and Misbah, they wont score anywhere in the batting order so why not use them to play out, lets say 1st 2 deliveries?
 
how long do you think kammi can hold this together, his form so far has been poor.

I think Kaneria will be the key. Kami needs to give him the majority of the strike.

Kaneria's county season experience will make him the most feared batsmen for this SL bowling line up, Watch Out.
 
He has hit two sixes and 35 fours in his test career - has all the signs of an explosive batsmen
 
i hope kamran doesn't allow talienders to see more than 1 ball per over
 
looking fwd to DK batting...he is so much fun to watch when batting....

he will go down the track every now and then just to tap the pitch....the Rahul Dravid of Pakistan...lol
 
The Pakistani batsmen are strolling out, the Sri Lankans have taken their positions. Dilshan is not keeping, it's Sangakkara donning the gloves. Dilshan has a bandaged finger. We don't yet know how serious the matter is. All set to start. Kulasekara to Kaneria
 
Wow, Kaneria defends a ball and then thinks he's Afridi. Mental shot there, especially when he was just 99 runs away from his maiden century.
 
What are the odds on Akmal getting out quickly under the pressure to play big shots himself?
 
So Butt is out and the likes of Misbah/Malik/Kami can't do jack ....

i feel sorry for Faisal Iqbal...
 
why did they come out to bat anyways... awen 10 min waste ker diye
 
Difficult to blame Kamran there because there was no way he could take singles and he felt he had to get boundaries

Ajmal looking good out there

He has 2 first class 50s. I am not sure how Younis decided the batting order for the four bowlers. Their 1st class stats are:
Code:
       Mat  	Inns  	NO  	Runs  	HS  	Ave    50s
Gul     46  	 52  	 7  	 500  	46  	11.11  	0
Danish 155  	191  	75  	1233  	65  	10.62   1
Aamir   12  	 15  	 3  	 117  	23  	 9.75   0
Ajmal   82  	107  	35  	 836  	53  	11.61 	2

He was the night watchman

Someone should tell him that it may be called "night watchman" but he still has to watch the ball and not pretend he's batting in the dark
 
good to hearRameez is still full of ****.....

a new day but same old Rameez
 
Chalo bhai....Average bowlers ripping through Pakistan - not first the time
 
Now Pakistan seriously need to pick up early wickets...but I just don't see that happening, I hope it happens, but I don't see it happening, the way Sri Lankans batted when they chased 177 in the last test, with a RR of over 5!
 
This is probably the worst tail in the world
 
Waqar Yunus and Rameez overpraising Sri Lankans, and yesterday when pakistan were 285/4 Waqar said sri lanka badly needs at least two wickets, what is this? Wishing bad for your own country, job security? please keep me as commentator, i am neutral !! Shame on both@!!
 
MYK wants to be like Imran?

ok lets start with kicking out the likes of Misbah and Malik to start....send a message...

8 wickets and 96 runs, what the hell is wrong with our team


:malik :misbah :inti

and for these people not being there, as players and coaches:

:asif :younis :ahmeds :wasim :akhtar (to an extent for this guy)

This must be a record, four consecutive batting collapses?!
 
Can some body please teach them to hold a bat
 
Imy said:

Don't know about the worst but it's definitely the longest seeing as it starts from the openers
 
We expected some resistance from pakistan this morning, at least put up 50 runs for 3 wickets but it seems they have decided not to offer any resistance...
Fire :malik :ibutt :inti :misbah
 
Malik continue to play in middle order, he is neither batsmen nor a bolwer, Misbah has totally lost it..

for what other country would Malik have played so many matches with this record?
 
Looking at Kamran Akmals' performances in the whole series, i wonder why no one is talkin about his dismal display of batting and how beautiful Sarfaraz has batted in the A series. May be bring him back so Akmal starts performing again under pressure
 
Afridi_Fan said:
I am with you on that mate :D

Party time.
Balay Balay :27:

is it just me or all of us gonna lose our minds seeing this Pakistan team :43:
 
does guys like Misbah, Akmal and Malik have any shame?

how in the faking world would you go and sit in the same room after letting down your team everytime you go out?

Akmal is a keeper first..can't really say anything to the guy if your main BATTERS can't bat!

Let's see what Kaneria can do in this test as for SL it's been the seamers show.

Don't worry, Kaneria won't need to bowl. We need to keep claiming the ball has lost its shape every 5 overs until we find one that swings like a boomerang and the batsmen can't play it
 
Akmal is a keeper batsmen he is not the best keeper in Pakistan he is a there for his batting, otherwise no body would make him Paks Premiere Keeper
