1 Hour Remaining for the match. Lets hope Pakistan wins the toss and bat first.
 
TOss............


9am In about half an hour, captains of Zimbabwe and Pakistan will walk out for the toss. That in itself is a reassuring sight, that these two sides are playing Test cricket, despite what all has gone on in the countries, with their cricket administrations, with their talent. Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the only Test between Zimbabwe and Pakistan
 
Pakistan's 17-man squad surprisingly includes nine players who have played 24 Tests between them. Four of them are uncapped
 
Atif is it allowed to post streams here? Because in the last coupple of days i saw people posting links?
 
Is Geo super showing this ? Might have to do a search in google :)
 
9.30am It's a beautiful, sunny summer day in Bulawayo. We will get you the toss news very soon
 
Surpurising decision by Misbah, I'm guessing the pitch may something in it for the bowlers.
 
What a shocking decision, don't know what Misbah was thinking. Lets wait for the start of the match to see if he is right or wrong.
 
Pakistan bowling first, poor decision as I heard its a batting paradise!
 
Pakistan have won the toss and they elect to bowl first in Test match against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo
 
We are in sunny Bulawayo as opposed to the seamer-friendly Harare

Let's see what happens before we judge Misbah's decision.
 
Bowling first is risky, but I haven't seen the pitch.

Might be a complete minefield.
 
Um is this an exceptional circumstance for posting links because we don't get Ten Sports in USA or UK or really anywhere but Pakistan?
 
If there is anything in thw wicket it will be early on. some grass covering should assist the pakistan seamers.

Such decisions are justified only if we bowl zimbos out on day 1 then Misbahs made the right decision.

Yea, surely mods can allow exceptions here.

which ten sports is showing it. I have Aus vs Sl & wwe on mine ones :(
 
when you win the toss you should always look to put scoreboard pressure on by batting first unless the pitch is completely green with overcast conditions!!!!!! :69:

this is why Misbah pisses me off so much!!! :facepalm:

just look at Michael Clarke, he chose to bat first despite spin conditions at Galle!!!
 
good starting XI

Mohammad Hafeez, Taufeeq Umar, Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Umar Akmal, Adnan Akmal, Junaid Khan, Sohail Khan, Saeed Ajmal, Aizaz Cheema
 
so only the one spinner with hafeez as a part timer? this may cost us. yasir shah and ajmal would have destroyed them. oh well.

:hamster::hamster::hamster: NO Imran Farhat. SEE now thats the positive thing about Misbah, he hasn't included Farhat since hte day he took captaincy.
 
2 spinners and 3 seamers, should be enough to trouble Zimbabwe.
