    Misbah being so freakishly good in T20 Internationals is one of the most random things in cricket. He averages 49 with the bat after 25 games. That's just stupid. He's not someone you'd think would have T20 as his strongest suit from watching the way he plays ODIs and Tests either. Strike rate not awful either, above 120.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Right up there with Dhoni's career t20 rate of 108

    Leave the "experience" to other matches IMO

    Still a tough ask, but that last over from Aamer may be critical, hey Manjrekar?

    Beauty from Tait. Think that's the ball game.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Yeah, I reckon so. Doubt Australia'll let Razzaq play an innings similar to the one he played against England.

    Has the music after a wicket been retro the whole game? Only just noticed the music kick in. Bit of YMCA after Afridi got out, and then some Jacko after Razzaq's dismissal. Oh yeah, it's effectively game over now too.

    Pak lose another one to OZ (lost count of how many consecutive games they have lost to OZ)!

    If Ind and OZ qualify for semis from Grp F then it would give Pak nightmares to even think about a semis spot

    All over. Nice end for Tait, finished with very nice figures of 3-20 from 4. Quality T20 bowler.

    Pretty good performance from Oz except for the last over of batting

    Harris needs to come into the side, probably in place of Smith, as bowling looks light and kid is wasted at 8

    Finally, Warnie you idiot!

    Tait is one of the best T20 bowlers in the world and the fact hat he was dropped from the hacks at Rajas...... was nothing short of an absolute joke

    Pakistan having to sweat a little on qualification now. A smallish win for Bangladesh over Australia would knock them out.
