    Pakistan staying in the tourney is good for Aus as it ensures one potentially freebie game for them in the final stages.

    No, I just quoted some matches off my head. Interesting considering you are prepared to judge the ability of a man who tonked Mcgrath for 31 from 11 and Lee for 25 from 14 on the fastest wicket in the world as **** player of fast bowling just because he got out slogging because the required rate was over 12?

    Or applying your logic, Clarke seems to be a **** player of spin, does he not?

    Don't be facetious.

    He said that they should protect Smith from Afridi, because he's a young player still learning his craft, bowling to a guy who isn't a great player of pace. Everyone knows that Afridi's gone nuts, and no-one gets spared, but it's completely away from the point that social was trying to make.

    Perhaps you missed his posts where he was insinuating Afridi was a walking wicket against pace.

    Further, newbie or not, he is playing international cricket, and 21 is hardly kiddo age. If he needs to be 'guarded' against being hit in T20s, he might as well stay at home.

    a) they are making a comeback
    b) they are rubbish.
    I only hope that Afridi "learns" from his mistakes unlike other captains before him...(highly unlikely though). The guy couldn't understand **** and gave 4 straight overs to Hafeez, unbelievable.....if he wanted to start of with spin that bad he could have had Ajmal bowl a couple in the beginning and Ajmal did beat Watto with a couple of good doosras after...it was highly likely that Ajmal would have trapped Watson early on...

    In any case to me, most important things that Afridi has to do are:

    1) Bring Asif back in the side and dump Sami.
    2) Don't rely too much on Hafeez in batting or bowling. Instead promote Alam at 1 down position. Left right combo is always frustrating for the bowling side.
    3) Have Razzaq open. I have said it all along this guy can bat when given responsibility. Once settled he is brilliant against pace bowling...
    4) Afridi should not bowl so early he is only getting hammered all over the place. May be coming in late to bowl might make a difference.


    But all this, if we make it to the next round.

    I don't think Aussies will throw the game away, they want to stamp their authority in T20 so its highly unlikely. But Bang is very well capable of beating Australia. I hate this feeling when we leave things to other teams...

    If pakistan is knocked out of this tournment.. the pakistani team is not blamed for this..

    They played hard in both of their games.. they just lost to a better team yesterday..

    on that note..Bang is well capable of beating Aus... so it will be a good contest between these two teams to look forwad...

    I think if Pak makes to the second round they might play him. Given that Sami has been far from impressive..

    IMO, Asif was more or less the only player in the team who had some kind of an authority among the Aussie batsmen in the tests and other games..not playing him, leaves you with 11 players which on average day would never struggle the Australians. Perhaps Amir a bit but still not as much as Asif.

    "Has your goalkeeping improved?"
    The first thing Wasim Akram asked Kamran Akmal when the latter paid him a visit
    May 1, 2010

    Akram is right on the money first up!

    Akmal still far from being any better as far as i felt...wonder how this T20 series turns out for him.

    Aussies batting.

    We got our main man right in the middle of the field to make sure that Pak progresses...
