I've come to the conclusion I don't like watching Pakistan bat anymore :ibutt
 
46/3 in 25 overs, pathetic stuff...

so much for trying to win the game...we can't do that when we bat at RR of less than 2!!!
 
I hope we don't lose any wickets in the next session. Come on Misbah, I am backing you in this session.
 
Good come back after the loss of quick wickets. Azhar & Misbah lasted an hour to see it through to lunch. More of the same in the next session. Application & occupation. The runs will come naturally as the game progresses. West Indies session but since the rain interruption there have been signs of steadiness. Hopefully more to follow ala Rahul Dravid style batting.
 
That said there's nothing wrong with the Pakistani scoring rate at the moment.

The current crop of youngsters like Asad, Azhar and possibly Umar Akmal are suffering out there. Pakistan's batting has been a disgrace, it's as if we're watching the same type of collapse and batting which we witnessed during the tour of England.

Pakistan are clearly struggling without a batting coach - such a shame, btw doesn anyone know when Skysports will be showing this live?

These 2 were looking settled. Partnership of 22*. West Indies have bowled tightly but there have been some promising signs in this partnership.

i hope you are not talking abt 4 maidens in a row

Lunch, 1200 It's been West Indies' session. The pitch offered minimal assistance in terms of seam movement. There was no swing either, just a bit of bounce

from Cricinfo

And these guys are struggling this much on a batting pitch ugh. Cant watch these talentless classless player who cant take a single to save their life.

Hopefully one of these idiots gets out and ends the misery.
 
I think there should be an exception for Pakistan in test cricket they should be allowed 10 days for 1 test match and not 5!

Only then we might not will but MIGHT score 400+
 
Have you ever watched a test match before?

yes I have, infact been watching for 17 years and have seen the evolution of test cricket over the years...It doesn't take a genius to bat at a RR of 3+...if they actually batted with intent and not let WI get on top, we'd be seeing Azhar & Misbah put pressure on WI bowlers & fielders by milking the 1s and 2s and punish the bad balls...no one is asking to blast the ball out of the ground...if these standards of batting continue, good luck in becoming a top test side any time in the future!

there's something called, smart running b/w the wickets...something which :yk and :moyo mastered in test cricket...
 
-Hafeez is not a test quality opener.
-Taufiq has been struggling on this tour.
-Shafiq played a rash shot.
-Rampaul was on fire. Bowled in good areas & got the ball to talk up front.

Dude Seriously.

We are under 50/3. Unless the score is 150/3 or 200/3. No one in their right mind will call that a come back and that too after winning the toss and electing to bat. :facepalm:
 
Seriously we need to pick up the scoring rate because we are trailing by 0-1. WI would be quiet happy to draw this and take the series. When you want to win a test you need to score quickly to give your bowlers ample time to get 20 wickets of opposition. And also remember our bowling is not that strong nowadays.

also misbah should play 9 times out of 11 players.

You have seen Chanders & Sarwan bat? This is Test Cricket. You can afford to get bogged down & play out maidens.
You can frustrate the opposition through your resilience and determination to put a price on your wicket. We have not seen enough of it by Pakistan test sides over the years. Full of flashiness & stylishness who score at a good rate but lose their wickets in the process. It doesn't work both ways. I prefer this style.


Old fashioned cricket but the application & guts is worthy of appreciation. More of it please as Zaheer Abbas said in a recent PP interview.

Well it's hard to bat with intent when your top three have thrown there wickets away, remember how Asad Shafiq got out? dominating enough? Plus, you can't expect them to dominate the Windies bowling right away, they need to take time to adjust to the pitch and the bowling. Sammy is bowling beautifully. I would honestly prefer tuk tuk over out out.

sorry but I want my team to win rather than bat like spineless wussies...we saw what good all the tuk tuk did for us last summer in England and in the 1st test at Guyana...we sure came out on top with flying colors!!! NOT!

Difference b/w Zaheer Abbas and these scrubs, Zaheer could up the ante anytime he wanted, but not these losers...

you put pressure on the opposition by pinching smart 1s and 2s especially when you're in a hole and trying to get back in the game, that's how momentum is built not by tuk tuk for eternity...

So your saying they are going about it the right way?

We are already on lunch period have just scored 46 in 25 overs.

There are 90 overs in a day and we cannot even last a full day no matter how we play.

If the 2 batsman can rotate the strike and go at 3rpo we can get to a decent total and can actually declare or get upto 350 or something.

The way they carry on this will either turn out to be a draw or West Indies will beat by an innings!
 
ok only coz you said it but honestly this is disgusting. what kind of approach is this

I am also against this approach but what can we do when Buffoon is our choorman.

Some people here would rather have a score line of 72/5 with plenty of strike rotation & nice ticking the scoreboard over rather than 46/3 with 2 premier batsmen at the crease. Typical Pakistani fans. Haven't got the patience with Test Cricket. Sad to see. :))
 
these youngsters are failing coz they have no one alongside to learn from, did you guys watch how these youngsters played against nz and southafrrica coz there was younis who can guide them and teach them unlike misba who can only teach them tuk tuk

Pakistan are lacking that specific test material experience and that extra class in the middle order. Pakistan are foolish enough to ignore Yousuf who has been brilliant on his county loan spell. Misbah was the only player to score a half century in the previous test game - it's just he needs more support from the other batsmen, especially the openers.

Pakistan's batting would make a HUGE improvement IF YK and Yousuf were in the side + hiring a batting coach.
 
Only Pakistani fans have a problem with scoring rates in Test Cricket. Any other nation will fully understand the requirements of the situation. They'd rather be bored to death rather than losing wickets.

we are behined in series as njamal said, we needs to be agressive not this tuk tuk. bowling has been good but not that good which the scoreboard suggest

Please make a thread on " The Match Referee's Room ", the title is something like "Hi Pakpassion or Hello PP!". Note: this is for fairly new users. Just make a thread and AZ will do the rest. Thanks!

If our batsman are unable to score at 3 rpo without getting out then God help us.

I never mentioned tuk tuk for ETERNITY. The whole point in being a class Test batsman is being able to see out the tough phases and score runs when times get easier. Batting will get easier as the day progresses, the pitch will lose some of its bounce and the ball will get older.

We didn't have enough tuk tuk in England last summer. It was all too flashy with ODI specialists in the test team i.e. Malik, Kamran, Farhat, Umar and the team got bowled out 3 times under 100. In the SA + NZ series new faces and a change of approach worked brilliantly. That is what they are continuing now..........

You shouldn't have a problem with it. The plan has been working. This is how good test batsmen come through the ranks..

These people would rather see Misbah and Azhar play out the whole day and close the day with them 2 still at the crease 30no each in 325423513 deliveries!

But as long as they don't lose wickets. Who cares about runs right. Not like Pakistan need to win this test match is it!
 
Lol at all those that criticise Misbah

Saving ur teams sorry @ss again

He is once again trying to see off the new ball and people criticise him for tuk tuk
Bludy disgrace

Thats why we are trailing 0-1.
 
If you dont have :moyo

If you dont have :yk

If you dont/cant mix youth with experience.... :moyo :yk

If you keep selecting a player who is not cut out for Test cricket.... :hafeez

If your last player to score a 150 is nowhere near the scene... :fawad

If your most talented player is batting at 6 when the disaster has already ocurred... :umarakmal

If your number 7 is the biggest bunny around... :salman

If the Merry Go Round is in full flow.... :nonstop:

Disaster will be round the corner....
 
Stop this BBC, a guy who thinks 46/3 is a come back says enough about anything else.

Hit the nail on the head there. Our current think tank is not going for win they are too scared of a loss. Imran once said when you go out there on the pitch with a fear of loss in your head you can never win.

If these 2 can bat out the whole session that will be a tremendous effort.
 
Comeback after the rain intervention where they have resisted right through. No wicket fell. Batsmen were looking good.

Did you really see Azhar Ali bat?

He was jumping out of the crease to Sammy, and as much cricket I have seen I can tell you that is NOT the signs of a batsman playing comfortably. So, if Azhar Ali was looking good, I am very disappointed with your low standards.

He is gonna be seeing off the new ball after 90 overs.

But dont worry guys this is all a plan. Misbah going for draw from day 1 on a test. Its a new revolutionary strategy for test cricket. Maybe he will get to 90 by day 5.
 
At this rate we'll have 165-166 runs at the close of play. We normally make that many anyways
